    I was at a wedding reception when somebody requested that the band play--and damned if they didn't know it--Kinky Freedman's "Get Your Biscuits in the Oven and Your Buns In the Bed" !! Was a hoot, but probably not what you're looking for during the ceremony.

    Willie. I should have known. I used to have Red Headed Stranger on vinyl. Not sure that song meant much to the teenage me.

    Valentine's Day is a song I've put on a couple CDs for her. Goodbye is a killer tune - but love lost. Mexico - that's one place I'll never go in my life again.

    You guys are awesome. Thank you.

    +1 for Valentine's Day. Also Days Aren't Long Enough. Probably another dozen great Steve Earle love songs I could mention.

    Dadgum Mutt, them's murder ballads!

    Ol Marshall gittin hitched, not singin "Divorce Me COD."

    Marshall,

    Ya can be like Dusty Hill when he got hitched, and sang Elvis "Can't Help Falling In Love" to his bride.

    Or maybe George Harrison's, "Something?"

    Then it's the perfect song!!

    My wife and I are celebrating our 10th anniversary next weekend with a big BBQ with many friends, some of whom where at the wedding, and I'll be singing "Should I Fall Behind," to her again!!

    Alison Krauss's version of "When You Say Nothing At All" would be the one I'd use if it was my decision. That lady has the voice of an angel and if this one doesn't tug at her heart strings then she's made of stone.

    And if you'd prefer a version with a male vocalist then there's Keith Whitley's.

    Both very nice versions but for my part I'd go with Alison's. I'd marry that girl tomorrow if she'd have me. :D

    EDIT: Too bad Van's out because there is a treasure trove of stuff there I'd record and send to my ex-fiancée or play for her. We were both huge fans of his stuff and luckily my ex-wife isn't from Ireland.

    Great One ! Lead singer for the Seekers, Judith Durham, suffered a cerebral hemmohrage earlier this month, lost her ability to read music, play the piano, and write. Fortunately, she can still speak and sing just fine, is in therapy, and doing well.

    I thought of that one too, but to me it's not dusty. My own take. Beautiful sentiment though. I think my dear Mr Marshall is looking for love redeemed , not lost or newly discovered. I agree that Van is the right one for that or maybe Thompson.

    One of my fave songs and possibly fits your darkness and light idea is 'Have a Little Faith in Me' John Hiatt. Another though maybe a pinch on the sappy side if still lovely is 'Breathe' Faith Hill. A couple of possibles anyway. Good luck with it all... glass half full (at least) always huh.

    Just had another thought if slightly left field. Had to come back n edit, Maca's 'Maybe I'm Amazed' . Take care huh.

    Bingo. Love redeemed. That is going into the vows my friend.
    I sang Into the Mystic for my ex. That was the wondrous exploration mode. And we have 2 incredible sons and a ton of history to show for it. But the "discovery" part is, well not gone, but less integral.
    Hard to write about.

    Have A Little Faith.
    Talk about a song that would take a lot more vocal ability than I have. The expression he gets - saw him a couple years ago at a ski resort here. Small room - notoriously horrible acoustics - John solo piano made it sound like a cathedral.

    I'd love to hear that song solo piano. I'm seeing him with Lyle Lovett in November and I hope that one gets played. It's always incredible when a song gets every emotion with jus one instrument, one voice. The Ben Harper version of "in your eyes" pulls that off as well

    Turtles--So Happy Together. That was my first wife's and my song. We were high-school sweethearts. She died of cancer when she was 25. That song will always remind me of her.
