Walking down the aisle, bono's singing... which song?
 
My girlfriend and I are about to prepare our wedding for next year, and among a lot of issues, we face a u2 related problem: the choice of the song when she'll be walking down the aisle. We already know the one when we'll be walking out ( feeling good by muse, I first told her I loved her on that one so we can't do any other way ) but for the entry, we hesitate between All I want is you ( her favorite ) and The first time ( mine ). Lyricswise, they both more or less match the occasion. Before we were listening to the very beginning of All I want is you and it clearly sounds right but I'm still hooked on The first time so...
If anyone is wishing to help me here...
What would you choose or ( what have you chosen ) ? ( It could be a different song! )

I think its very hard to choose a U2 wedding song, here are some suggestions:

Stay
Unchained Melody
Everlasting Love

The first time

Are you playing the song in full or a portion?

cobl04 07-23-2007 02:46 AM

I doubt all of them will be love songs—maybe they'll have between 1-3 ballads on there.

And anyway choosing a U2 wedding song is a difficult task because so many of their songs are not outright love songs, at least in the traditional sense. Many of their so-called love songs have a bitter quality to them. Isn't there a Bono quote out there where he said he can't believe how many people play One at their wedding. He said something to the effect: "Don't they read the lyrics?!".

As far as the question goes I would go with AIWIY.

AIWIY. The First Time is in the same bin as One- it's about a guy who can't find love from his rich father, his outstanding brother, or his incomparable lover. Not, in my opinion, a great choice.

hawkmoon 269 & drowning man are really lovely songs.

bratty_cat 07-23-2007 01:46 PM

hallelujah here she comes :wink:

cstar 07-23-2007 02:06 PM

For walking down the aisle at the beginning I'd go with Grace, the intro to COBL, or Streets... Hallelujah here she comes is a good one too....

Or "A Man and a Woman" -- LOL.

Yaweh would be a good one to walk out to.

lol how funny would that've been to the guests unfamiliar with the song? they'd hear these beautiful lyrics "take my hand, you know i'll be there when i can i'll cross the sky for your love" and then look into their programs to see the song title.

AIWIY?

The First Time?

The song your looking for is Promenade, trust me on this.

Enbahan 07-23-2007 04:30 PM

When my cousin got married a couple of weeks ago they had Beatiful Day playing. Interesting choice I guess and a bit unexpected too. :wink:

BonoIsMyMuse 07-23-2007 04:33 PM

As long as it's not I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For, you should be okay :wink:

the older generation Catholics in my familiy would probably have a heart attack if a U2 was played as my wife-to-be walked down the aisle!!
But apart from that The First Time seems to be a nice fit. I went to a wedding a while ago where a string quartet played Coldplay's 'Clocks' and it worked really well.
