Mrs Bouldery_bits and I are getting hitched and making it official.

We're struggling for a bang on first dance song.

We have varied and slightly leftfield musical tastes.

UKC Hive mind Assemble with suggestions!!!!

Afro-Left - Leftfield :-)

Seriously though, if you want a bit of cheese try "You're My Best Friend" by Don Williams

In reply to bouldery bits: Why do you have to have a first dance. They always seem a bit corny to me. We didn't have one and despite the fact that we met at a proper dance, it some how didn't seem appropriate.

Ha, we had 808 State, Cubik. Quite a night my reception!

If you can't think of one then you should consider not having one!

We had a wonderful wedding and a Ceilidh band. We didn't have a formal first dance but just got up with everyone else for the first dance of the night.

I'm afraid I subscribe to the view that a formulated First Dance is corny.

Possibly not a first dance kind of track, thought i'd share the beauty none the less.

I was planning Who'd have thought? by Rancid for mine.

"And it hits me when I'm alone, I'm an angry man
I start singing to myself I got dealt a shitty hand
With all these feelings my heart could explode
So is it not fear, knowing it all

And I say
Who would've thought that the dreams come true?
And who would've thought I ended up with you?
And who would've thought what they said was true?
It was and you are, light in darkness come through"

I'm a big softie when it comes to Mrs 2pints...
