    I have always day dreamed about having a live band to perform the song Lady In Red but with the word white in place of red. I do feel that it might be improper to change the lyrics without the permission of the artist who wrote the song so maybe I should start now in trying to contact them.

    Why would it be improper to change the lyrics without permission of the artist?

    I feel that out of respect for the artist's personal vision permission should be asked before making changes to their lyrics as it could change the meaning which they intended.

    After hearing Etta James' "At Last" for the umpteenth time at a friend's wedding recently and speaking to a another friend (a chick) who wants Lone Star's "Amazed" <shudder>...

    For the married and the married to-be folks here, what was your first dance song?
    Was it your choice or your (overbearing) spouse's?
    Do/Did you choose the song based on lyrical content, a mutual/personal meaning, or optimally both?


    Stevie Wonder's Moon Blue. My wife chose it, nice slow jazzy tune. Chose it for lyrical content and we did the ballroom to it.

    Hi Guys,

    This was not my first dance song but I just thought in my mind it would be so cute to use...

    "When I take Your Hand" is one of the finest wedding songs. Another alternative is "You're All My Reasons". This song also fits as the first dance at weddings. These two songs are from artist shaun barrowes.

    I give a big thumbs up.[​IMG]

    My wife and I were married in Las Vegas at her parents home. She thought it would be great to have Elvis come. So my wife and I didn't really have a song picked out, so we just use the first one Elvis sang that night:

    I Can't Help Falling in Love with You

    By: Elvis Presley

    Wise men say only fools rush in
    But I can't help falling in love with you
    Shall I stay
    Would it be a sin
    If I can't help falling in love with you

    Like a river flows surely to the sea
    Darling so it goes
    Some things are meant to be
    Take my hand, take my whole life too
    For I can't help falling in love with you

    Like a river flows surely to the sea
    Darling so it goes
    Some things are meant to be
    Take my hand, take my whole life too
    For I can't help falling in love with you
    For I can't help falling in love with you

    That's All by Mel Torme is nice. I prefer Sinatra singing it but his version is a bit to slow to dance to.

    I'm getting married in late August, and we haven't given it a thought. My fiancÃ[​IMG]e is a dancer/choreographer, so I expect her to take care of it. Probably a traditional waltz.

    There will, however, be a mambo performance in drag, performed by my wife-to-be's best (male) friend - another dancer. Épater la bourgeoisie.


    If I ever get married and am forced to do a traditional ceremony, that is what I would want to do. I can't stand all the cheesy music most people play at weddings. And there would be be a strictly enforced dress code.

    If I have my way though, it will be a beach wedding in a South American country suitably far away so as to discourage attendance by my extended family.

    Great Elvis Song, would work for my first dance song. Just something slow that you can dance to rather easily. [​IMG]
