We're going with a song that is US, not one that is really common at weddings. He said it was going to be our dance when it first came out, and there you go, lol. "Kiss me in the Dark" by Randy Rogers Band.

I have narrowed the 1st song down to 5 choices- By Your Side by Sade, Push by Sarah McLachlan, Crush by DMB, Wonderful Tonight by Eric Clapton or God Only Knows by The Beach Boys.... Decisions, decisions!

We chose John Lennon's "Imagine". I played it for my bridesmaids the other day and they were all in tears by the end verse.
