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

Help me make it through the night - Gladys Night and the Pips. Married for 9 years when he was killed in an accident…..forever young.

Ours was Nights in White Satin - we danced to the Moody Blues live in the Student Union.

There's a kind of hush all over the world by Herman's Hermits, that shows our age, 1967 it must have been.

Nat King Cole singing “When I Fall in Love”. He was always singing and this was a favourite. I had it played at his funeral but a lovely version sung by the Morriston male voice choir.

Wonderful Tonight and Layla by Eric Clapton.

I met my lovely husband when I was 14 and married at 18 and he was 20. Our song was Nat King Cole 'Too Young' - which everyone told us. We had nearly 60 years befote he died.

Patience by Guns & Roses (had not long come out of a bad relationship so was wary) & Have I told you lately by Rod Stewart which we danced to at our wedding. Also have numerous songs that make me think of my DH.

'The very thought of you; by Nat King Cole still makes me weak at the knees (and everywhere else)

"I had a dream".....mine let the team down, so there is no 'we.' Is that okay?

I think ours was "Le métèque", by Georges Moustaki. I find it rather repellent these days. An old, ugly man lusting after a 20-year-old. Yuck.

Was he old in the 1960s?

Ours is a rather tongue in cheek one “I got you babe” by Sonny and Cher. Funnily enough it was one of the questions on University Challenge tonight.

With my DCs Dad it was 'Eternal Flame' by The Bangles.
The flame went out, but we were pretty good friends after the initial heartbreak!
With my OH now it's 'Night In White Satin' by The Moody Blues.
I can't imagine us ever being in white satin but we do love the song!

“You are my hearts delight”. Richard Tauber. My late husband used to sing it to make sure that his hearing aid was working.

When we first started going out, my now husband bought me “Ain’t no pleasing you”!! Well, we’ve been together for forty years, so i can’t have been that hard to please smile

Follow You, Follow Me Genesis.

Baby, Now That I've Found You - The Foundations.

My OH tells me ours is This Guy’s in love with You, Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass. That’s ok by me.
