    kind of an off-shoot of the other wedding thread but ....

    mrs. shockey and my first dance was to "stand by me." our last dance of the evening was to the bruce's acoustic version of "thunder road."

    to this day, we wish we would've led off with the latter. anyone else have regrets on their choices? ??? ??? ???

    I'm sure many, many people regret hearing the wedding march.

    Me and my wife considered Springsteen's "If I Should Fall Behind," but went with Louis Armstrong's "Only You" for sentimental reasons. We don't regret it, but have decided that if we ever renew our vows, we're dancing to Springsteen.

    Shockey, acoustic Thunder Road's a good show-closer, if you will.

    We danced to Jewel's Face of Love. No regrets.

    Ours is just embarassing. Shania Twain's Still the One. Emotionally and given some of our history, it was a very good fit, though. Plus, that's what my wife wanted and I pretty much let her have whatever she wanted for that day.

    yeah, that's what we thought going in, too. but the reality was our party was a really, really great one. but by the time we closed the night with "thunder road," many folks had left and the ones left behind were, um, happy. also, the video folks had shut down before the finale. so there's no evidence of us dancing to "thunder road."

    oh, well. we've got the bob sheppard intro. that's what really matters, right? 8)

    p.s. -- we've got the party groovin' to "dancing in the dark" on the video, complete with my pelvic thrusts. :eek: ::) ;D

    My wife & I didn't pick a last dance.

    Our first dance was Rod Picott's "Angels & Acrobats". There's a link to a sample of it here: http://rodpicott.com/music.html

    I was hoping for Bruce Springsteen's "Happy" for that first dance.

    However I readily agreed to "Angels & Acrobats" because I was a fan of Rod's before I met my wife and she loved that song when I took her to one of his shows. Up until two months or so before the wedding Rod said he was going to come and perform the song for our first dance. However being an independent musician trying to make a name for himself, he opted for a series of dates in California at that time instead.

    So, no regrets over song choices.

    I wanted something Bruce as a wedding song, but the missus was dead set on "It Had to be You". Which it was. I didn't mind that much, mostly because I couldn't think of a specific Bruce song that fit the mood. For example, I don't love "If I Should Fall Behind" and my wife didn't need or certainly deserve to hear "you ain't a beauty, but hey you're all right" on her wedding day. The "kiss the bride" version of "Stolen Car" really would not have been appropriate nor would "Brilliant Disguise".

    The band that we hired, which was awesome, didn't know any Bruce songs, so the closest to the Jersey shore that we got was "Having a Party".

    "I Live My Life For You" by the great Firehouse.
    Yes, Uni loved hair metal and had a mullett and he still has no regrets.
