Rainbow's End

The cottage smells of paint, winnie still has yelliw stains on her face and I've missed a bit under the radiator!, but most of the paining is finished, which is great for tomorrow I have an appointment with the wedding registrar to go over the wedding...........
Chris told me to " be neat" when I go......
"You don't want to think that we are riff raff" he said raising one Roger Moore eyebrow!
We are having one piece of music during the service......which is  " our tune"......
It had to be a film theme..did it not?
This is it

Who else has an "our song" 
And what is it?

    3. One of the girls in 'Girls' is called Shoshanah, I think it's a lovely name.

  5. I would have thought that 'Who Let The Dogs Out' would have been more suitable.

    2. It used to be anything by the Velvet Underground, but these days we are rather partial to a bit of Jimmy Shand.

      Delete
    3. Jimmy Shand (and his band) once made a record called 'The Jimmy Shand Experience', around the same time as Hendrix made his. Style...

    4. I will youtube him.......right now

    5. Spent many a Hogmanay dancing into the wee sma' hours to the strains of Jimmy Shand and His Band!

    6. Does he wear a fair isle sweater?

      Delete
    7. It's not obligatory to wear Fair Isle anything, toss a caber or wear a sporran if Scotland is your homeland. LOL x

  6. Our song is 'Black' by Pearl Jam, a song about unrequited/absent love which isn't exactly romantic I guess

  9. Our favourite film John, a very good choice. Our song is 'Kiss from a Rose' by Seal.

  10. Important to have a song. The one you've chosen is so lovely. Our is the Pogues: "Fairytail of New York" I dunno...you had to be there. X

  11. Dolly Parton & Kenny Rogers 'Islands in the stream'. It was released the year we met, 1983.

  13. That clip was beautiful. I haven't seen Breakfast At Tiffany's yet :P

    For me to have an "Our song", there needs to be an "Our" ;)

    ReplyDelete
  14. One of my oldtime favourites, John! Good pick!
    Our song is 'Midnight Train to Georgia' by Gladys Knight and the Pips.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Not only did we have a" tune" but our tune was the same "Moon River" except we were married in 1966 and moved to Widnes England after our marriage. We lived in Widnes and my husband was stationed in Burtonwood. I have just joined this blog and am looking forward to reading yours! Good luck on your wedding.

  16. My parents were dating when they saw a movie about the composer Sigmund Romberg; One of the songs in the movie became "their song". "When I Grow Too Old To Dream".

  17. There won't be a dry eye in the house, wish we could all be there.

  18. I was a freshman in college the year the movie came out. If I'd had a boyfriend then, no doubt, that would have been the song. Saw it with dorm mates.
    What a great pick, for any reason.

  21. Such a beautiful song. They'll be weeping in the aisles!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Great song!

    Our song is "I knew I loved you" by savage garden.

    ReplyDelete
  23. This is one of my favourites but 'my' song is If You Leave Me Now by Chicago. Summer of 1976. It was a hot one!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I'm wondering if you're going to have this very tape played in the church, the Ms Hepburn version. You say this is the only music you're having? Pity 'cos I've been waiting to find out who was going to provide the swelling organ.

    1. double entendre or plain old voyeurism?

    2. I've no idea what you're talking about, rhymes.... - but I trust it raised a chuckle.

  25. I do love that song, and watching the clip was so lovely. I was quite lost in the moment watching the clip. John, are you and Chris going on a honeymoon? Xxx

  26. Very nice song; very evocative.

  27. Our song is What A Wonderful World by Louis Armstrong x

  28. You are so romantic. When the Best Beloved and I got married, he arranged for his friend's band to play "There Goes My Everything" for our first dance! Absolutely clueless.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Oh my goodness, I have two versions of it on my current shop 'mix tape' (i.e. usb stick) and my brother is playing guitar on them both.
    Our song is Sunshine in Leith by the Proclaimers. Our first dance, and on another mix tape - it comes on about 10.45am and we have a little waltz to it! (It is such a romantic song, except it starts: My heart was broken; sorrow!)

    ReplyDelete
  30. Our first dance at our wedding was to Nina Simone's Baby Just Cares For Me. Our taste in music rarely meets so this is as near as we get to 'our tune'.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Good choice of song John - lovely haunting melody

    'Our' Song is 'The Twelfth of Never' sung by Johnny Mathis of course. The number 12 has played a big part in our life right from the beginning in 1960 - nearly 55 years ago.

    ReplyDelete
  32. That's a wonderful choice John. 'Our Song' is 'feeling hot hot hot'! Off the plane and onto the dance floor for our honeymoon in St Lucia 27 years ago!

    ReplyDelete
  33. We have two 'our songs'.
    1. Your Love Is Better Than Ice Cream - Sarah McLachlan
    2. Sunshine On Leith - The Proclaimers

    Yours is so much more romantic and classic!

  36. My first husband and I had 'our music' which was an obscure piece of early chamber music ( we both played early instruments) - the farmer and I have no such thing - 'our' song for a down to earth Yorkshire farmer is a bit much you know. That wedding is getting near - I have it writ large on my calendar by the computer - wish I could just sneak in the back on the big da.

  39. What is a "Huckleberry friend"? Is Chris one? Perhaps you should have painted the kitchen "huckleberry friend" instead of "juniper blush" which if you on't mind me saying looks so gay!

    ReplyDelete
  40. We have a song that we had played at our wedding, but I cannot for the life of me remember either what it was called or who sang it. Well it took me five years to remember the date of our wedding anniversary so what do you expect!!

    ReplyDelete
  41. You and Chris couldn't have chosen a more lovely song for your wedding. We got married very quickly and never had a song. I wish we did.

  42. "Follow You,Follow Me" Genesis.

  45. Aww John one of my very favourites. I used to sing it to Twiglet to get him off to sleep when he was a baby. Not sure if he enjoyed it but I did :)

  46. It isn't really my sort of thing to have an 'our' song so we don't have one.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I have always loved this song.

    Turtles...Happy Together. We had the theme song of Romeo and Juliet played on piano at our wedding. Some would think that would put a like curse on our union but we are both still together for forty-three years this June.

  48. Lovely song, ours is Truly Madly Deeply by Savage Garden x

  49. The song we danced to at our reception was "(Reach Out) I'll Be There," by the Four Tops.

  52. Up town girl, Covered by the Backstreet boys (shame). It was the song my husband and I first snogged to in the Liverpool University Union Bar. Classy!!! He got my a copy of the original on LP which is framed in our living room for our anniversary.
