Thread Name: Wedding songs needed, non folk!!
Subject: RE: Wedding songs needed, non folk!!
dermod, the song that goes "O how we danced on the night we were wed ..." is actually titled "The Anniversary Song." (Al Jolson co-wrote it, based on music by Ivanici, and recorded it.)

"The Anniversary Waltz" is a different song that starts "Tell me I may always dance the Anniversary Waltz with you ..." (maybe slight paraphrase).

Both those songs have lyrics really more suited to something like a 25th wedding anniversary. (But then, it's not my wedding, so what do I know?)

"Hawaiian Wedding Song" was already mentined, scrum. Shame on you! *g*
But I might add that I love singing the Hawaiian lyrics ("Ke Kali Nei") even more than the English ones.
