When the Stars Go Blue: Wedding Song?

So my fiancee and I are thinking of playing When the Stars Go Blue (VH1 performance wtih Bono) as the first song at our wedding. Any thoughts? Any other ideas for the first song?

Thanks!
Pete.

It doesn't really matter to us what you end up with. It should be something that's special to the two of you exclusively.

Use the Ryan Adams version and I'd say go for it.

Andrea Corr is so hot when she sings that song, and other songs as well.

Bear in mind that this song is a very sad song. The song was written about Winona Ryder after they broke up. This is what Ryan said about it:

"Think of the 'star' as someone hiding away in her Beverly Hills mansion and not saying an awful lot. Listen to the song again with that in mind and see what you think."

Just don't go with the Tim McGraw version of Stats Go Blue. Heard that for the first time a few days ago...it was awful. simply awful.

Congrats on the wedding!

WTSGB is a pretty song. However, like Bonochick said, bear in mind that it's not the happiest song if you listen to the lyrics & the meaning. That's the problem with almost all of U2's love songs---they're all bittersweet. We had thought about using All I Want Is You, until we really thought about what he's saying in it (you want diamonds and all these crazy things, but all i want is you). What we ended up doing was dancing to another song ("Songbird," sung by Eva Cassidy), and having the DJ play the second chorus from Beautiful Day when he introduced us to the reception. That actually worked VERY well!

First of all congratulations on the upcoming wedding! . I think the song is pretty and it could be a good choice. However if you are looking for something with a happier meaning than I would choose a different song. However the choice of song is ultimately up to you and your future wife .

A couple of other really good suggestions would be U2's "Unchained Melody" or "Can't Help Falling In Love". Have already dropped hints to my bf about these songs for when we get married,hehe.

It's a pretty song, and although it may not be the happiest tune, nothing would be more inappropriate than the song played at my brother's wedding in Peru: Yesterday --"all my troubles seemed so far away/now it looks as though they're here to stay"

it was an instrumental version--I always assumed something got lost in translation.

Congrats on the wedding!

Thanks for everyones reply..

We've listened to the lyrics, and yea the song isnt 100% happy from start to end. Like Utoo said, almost all U2 songs are bittersweet, and this Corrs song is no different.

We wanted to see what others thought of the idea, and if you've heard it at weddings, so all your replies were all helpful.

We've thought of Unchained Melody, but that also has some bittersweet meaning to it. Can't Help Falling In Love sounds like a good idea too.

Thanks!

I'm getting married in Sept. and I've yet to find a U2 song appropriate for our reception. There aren't really any love songs. One, WOWY...NOT love songs! I love AIWIY, but it's just not "us". I think for our video of the pictures of ourselves I'll just be using Yahweh and the video version of OOTS as background music b/c those are two of our favorite new songs and we've got a lot of U2 memories, regardless of what the actual lyrics are refering to.

Oooh go for that!

Get the Zoo tv version, with Bono's incredible falsetto!
