We’ve almost been married 5 years now and we have no song. No song as in “our song.” Call me corny but I want to have a song for us. A couple of years ago my husband suggested Your Smile by Rene and Angela. I guess I wasn’t excited about it because it wasn’t a favorite. I told my husband recently that I wanted us to have a song. This morning at Zumba they played Stand By Me. I thought that might work. I told him about it after and he thought it was corny. I explained it’s about us standing by each other. He said that’s a given, we are supposed to stand by each other, we are married. He said the song should have some meaning. He suggested a Burning Spear song – the one I played the first time I went to his house. I said, “They will never play that at a wedding. I want a song where we’ll be sitting and it will come on and I can say “Come on, they’re playing our song.” I asked him why he liked Your Smile. He said because when he first saw me walk into that Starbucks 7 years ago I was smiling. And I was smiling in the first picture he saw of me. And that he loves my smile and fell in love with that smile.
Hmmmm. Sounds like a pretty good reason for a song. I can’t think of a better one. So, ladies and gentlemen it’s official. The Dunsons finally have a song, and here it is:
