Have you got one?
I regard "Follow you, follow me" by Genesis as ours but OH keeps forgetting!

A-ha Take on Me. DH wanted ’What have I done to deserve this’ , Pet Shop Boys, at our wedding.

Ours is actually 'Our Song'

My ex-h and my song was "Suddenly" by Billy Ocean, though he rarely remembered it after the first few years. My current partner and I have "Baby I'm Burning", by Dolly Parton, as our song.

Not between my late husband and me, in a couples sense but both of us would remember the theme tune of the student union bar when we were at the same university, and where we met (on the same course but not in the bar!) It was the Beatles 'Penny Lane'. Good times 😁

Runaway by The Corrs.

My husband is tone deaf, and brain dead when it comes to romance, so I suppose 'our song' is the sound of the engine in his narrow boat, which he totally loves!

“The Very Thought of You” Tony Bennett.

When DH and I met, we were at my Company Christmas do. Our first dance was 'The Gay Gordons' which causes hysterical laughter amongst our children

Hi everyone am wondering is everyone enjoying strictly this year I am very disappointed by the fact that we are getting more and more former dancers appearing ,in the beginning the show was for amateurs and we loved seeing how they progressed it made it fun but we are only on week 2 and several of the dancers are amazing so what chance does it give the likes of les Dennis and others the two chaps dancing at the
end last night I looked up and the male contestant has been in lots of musicals and other dancing jobs I don’t think this is fair
I don’t like this format and don’t think I will carry on watching
what was my favourite show .

hollie57 Sun 01-Oct-23 15:36:59

So sorry I thought I was on a new link didn’t mean to interrupt yours I am new to this .

kittylester Sun 01-Oct-23 15:45:37

Hi Hollie, there is already a Strictly thread. You could post on there.

TiggyW Sun 01-Oct-23 15:45:47

Undines - my husband is like yours - not an ounce of romance in him!
But ‘I’m not in Love’, 10cc, takes me back to my student days and a previous boyfriend…

It's here Hollie

We had a meal for 40 for our wedding reception, no dancing.
When we arrived at our honeymoon hotel on the beach in Antigua our first dance on the sand was to Hot, Hot, Hot by Buster Grimes which has become our song

Our kids found it hilarious when we rang and told them and say they will play it at our funerals 🤣🏝️🔥

Ooh that’s posh GG13!
We honeymooned in a caravan in Rhyl. 🤣🤣
Nice though.

We love 'How deep is your Love' by the Bee Gees. Followed closely by 'Cherish' by Chicago.

My love by Paul McCartney and Wings

Kathmaggie Sun 01-Oct-23 18:04:27

You’re the inspiration by Chicago - second marriage. DH still sings it to me.

Goldieoldie15 Sun 01-Oct-23 18:44:12

We had 2! Little old wine drinker me Dean Martin - we sang together to the cd track every time whilst in our car driving through France and Spain and You Do Something to Me Brian Ferry. Played both at his funeral. Wept buckets throughout. I still well up listening to these.

"In the Summertime" by Mungo Jerry. Was top of the charts for weeks in the summer of 1970 when we met. My OH had just got his first car so we did "have a drink, have a drive", often singing along to this on the car radio. My daddy wasn't rich, so we just did what we felt like, usually in the back seat.... blush
