Musical Monday: What If I Loved You?

on Sunday, February 1, 2009

Not exactly the question you want to be asking on your wedding day...but you know...the song was swinging so we went with it!



Musical Monday


When I married My Guy, it was a bit of "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" meets every heart wrenching farewell scene in every cheesy movie you have ever seen. We married on one coast with my big fat Italian family and I moved to another coast. ALONE. Err. With My Guy. But ALONE! In my family, if there aren't 10 random cousins in your house. YOU ARE ALONE. Anywho, as far as wedding songs went, the last thing I needed were a series of wedding songs that would tear my heart out. Soo.....we went with an upbeat song that was sweet enough to melt our hearts everytime we watched "Return to Me" ONE OF MY TOP 10 FABU ITALIAN AMERICAN MOVIES OF ALL TIME! But the melting was not a cry...it was a smile. So we moved around the dance floor with the three steps we learned at our one dance lesson and WOWED the crowd...err..or at least ourselves.

The following is the only clip I could find....

So, ladies and gents, I give you our wedding song "What if I Loved You" by Joey Gian from the movies "Return to Me".


I still get teary eyed every time I hear it and remember that sweet day!

Now go check out Jori-o's picks at Jeff & Me + Three and show us what moves you!

I know the feeling of moving far away from family. I'm Puerto Rican and not having at least 10 random cousins in my house means you are alone, too! I've never heard that song before but the lyrics are beautiful.

I wandered over to your blog from SITS.

I being The Him....love this song...never thought the first dance at my wedding would be a swing dance but I would have had it none other way...got our reception off to the best party I've ever been to. Among the many things my wonderful wife brought to me as a result of our union were the two movies Return to Me and Moonstruck...classics that I could watch and quote over and over. Thank you sweetheart!

Three things - no make that 4. First thanks for stopping by. Second, Return to Me is my all time favorite movie (I own it on VHS). Third love that song and fourth you must be a twin because Bones is my favorite show!

So cute! :)I got married and moved across the country at the same time too away from my large family, so I can totally relate!

What a fun wedding song. BTW - LOVE the video clip. David Boreanaz is super-fine! He married a girl from my high school.

That's an awesome song. Might I borrow it for the day I marry my high school sweetheart (finally after 20 years apart) this summer?

The Me/ The Wife/ The Mom said...

Blonde Duck - Thank you for visiting!

BDM - Thanks for stopping by! - It's kinda nice to have a quiet house on occasion I've learned. But what I wouldn't give for those cousins to drop in!

Susan! Thank you for peeking! Pearls of Wisdom is a great blog!

Husband! - There will be a little something extra for you tonight ;)

Mama W - We MUST be twins separated at birth - David Boreanaz is the son of my old weatherman! Talk about 7 degrees of seperation ;)

Cara - It's amazing what we leave behind for love and amazing what we gain! Don't you sometimes wish you could have both at the same time?

Stesha! Hugs AND Mocha is as good as it gets!

Diane - You TOO can learn to dance to this kind of music at your local dance studio...there is a video tape circulating of our first try...it's not pretty...but we did laugh a lot. So did the person filming.

Xazmin - We had a great time. Thank you for commenting!

Live & Learn - Take it, with my most sincere good wishes! You have no idea what you started in this house when I headed over and read your story. You've been through a lot. Happiness to you! In abundance!

Live and Learn the Hard Way said...

alright, I'll bite, what did I start??

The Me/ The Wife/ The Mom said...

Live & Learn - no riots...I beat a path to your blog...and after the kids were in bed, led him to your blog to read your story. We are both suckers for happy endings. I hope you will have happy endings in spades!...and happy beginings for that matter!

Live and Learn the Hard Way said...

Thanks-- I appreciate that-- both the reading and all of the wonderful wishes.
