The first song is one of my favorites, but I know what song I'm voting for.

Petra said...

How to people choose what songs is going to be know as theirs forever?
One songs other than on the list above could be Shania Twains' "From This Moment On". The lyrics are perfect for a first dance.

I love song #1. Still need to get Fatal Justice. Hopefully this weekend.

Stacey said...

YOu can never go wrong with a classic, so I picked At Last. Plus, if I ever get married, that's my song too.

Sarah said...

I love the search feature on my Nook!! All great sings.

Sarah said...

typing on my Nook however...oops. songs not sings lol

jamie said...

I don't see the Senstor wanting to dance to Bon Jovi, but I do see him wanting to make things perfect for Sam. Hmmm, maybe the Senator can pull some strings and get a live performance. ;-)

Alexa said...

ACK! I love them all! Plus Petra's suggestion From This Moment On.

Mary G said...

Great songs but I'm with Petra.
Every time I heard Shania's song I thought it would make a great wedding song.

Mary G said...

Sorry blogger issues.

Marie Force said...

Jamie, interesting that you should say that about the live performance.... An idea that has entered my mind, too.

Love them all but Bon Jovi is Bon Jovi :) Our first song was Love Me Tender I am a HUGE Elvis song and my hubby had no problems letting me have my way.

Amy in sunny CA said...

I still get teary when I hear my song from my wedding "Wonderful Tonight" by Eric Clapton.

The kids call it old!

Kara C said...

This is a no brainer for me. A bit of Sam for sure. My girl! When this wedding planning started I was SO hoping this would be in there, because it shows Sam's personality AND there was a great chance for some face time with Jon and the boys. Nick can pull that off, no doubt.

Alison said...

Gotta go with Bon Jovi on this one!

Jolene Allcock and Family said...

All great songs. I had to go with Rascal Flatts because I honestly love everything they put out and the lyrics are beautiful. Mine and hubby's song is Amazed by Lonestar. The first time we heard that song on the radio, it was a given and said everything we felt and that song was played during our wedding and it was our first dance :)

Jo said...

I chose Rascal Flatts as the lyrics blew me away, I just bought it on iTunes, astounding soung.
So glad I saw this.

Marie Force said...

The Rascal Flats song is one of my favorites. LOVE that song!

Angela said...

I like No. 1
My wedding song was Valentine by Martina McBride.
If you go the live performance route, I would definitely do Bon Jovi.

Monika Michalak said...

Our wedding song was "Here and Now" by Luthor Vandross. I love Luthor...poor thing.

I can see The Etta James For Sam & the Senator.
My favorite wedding song now is "Everything" by Michael Buble.
I will probably use that in my wip when I edit that part, if it makes it in the book. LOL And I was going to have a live performance, but not by the original artist in the first incarnation with a different song.

At our wedding my husband played "Somewhere Out There" from the Feivel the mouse movie on his sax for me. Such an AWWWWW moment!

windwarning said...

Monika I love that song in the Fieval movie just reading it I went AWWWW!

Sheree said...

I went with the classic, song #1. As much as I like Rascal Flatts, they're no Etta James.

Barbara said...

Voted for "Bless The Broken Road". It speaks so to the "road" that led them to each other and is so beautiful. All three could really fit, but this one feels right.

Corrina said...

i personally like rascal flatt, but I recall Sam being a huge Bon Jovi fan and blasting it around the house, or is that another book???? LOL

Aly said...

Even I am having a hard time with this one! And I have known about the choices for a while!

And since Mr Hackett and I went with "The Lady in Red" I am a wee bit unconventional...

Thinking...

Donna said...

I went with Bon Jovi. I love that song and so see Sam dancing to that. Nick will go with what she wants on this.

Bre said...

so hard to choose.....

Danielle Gorman said...

I am going to pick At Last because it's a timeless and classic song. Nothing like a classic.

Kay said...

All great songs, but "At Last" just has a "sound" that would be so romantic and emotional to dance to for a 1st dance.

Rachel said...

I agree with the live performance and I think it has to be Bon Jovi.

Johanna R Jochum said...

Tough decision, My wedding song was When You Say Nothing At All by Allison Kraus! My hubbie does not like crounty music but he liked that one!

jackie said...

Have to go with Bon Jovi. Everyone uses At Last :-) We used Mariah Carey and Luther Vandross version of Endless Love. Although, one I wished I used was True Companion by Marc Cohen. Search it :-)

Tara said...

With the possibility of a live performance, that helped influence my choice.

Our first dance was to Anniversary Song by Cowboy Junkies, like Aly, not conventional, but it's our song.

Am I the only one that is a bit sad the fun choices will soon becoming to an end?

oklanannie said...

Etta James's "At Last" sends shivers down my spine and it is one of my favorite. I can just see Sam and Nick dancing to this amazing song.

I LOVE Rascal Flatts though so the choice gave me pause - but Etta is just classic!

Jennifer said...

hmmm another tough choice. Not even sure I would know what to pick for a first song, except a singer/songwriter has promise to sing at my wedding... =)

Marie Force said...

Johanna,
When You Say Nothing At All is featured in Love at First Flight!

ShellyE said...

Well, I had to do a write-in vote today. I went with When a Man Loves a Woman, by Percy Sledge. I just love that song. Our wedding song was chosen by hubby - Sleepwalk by Santo & Johnny. The dance with my dad was Waltz Across Texas by Willy Nelson. This has been so much fun, I can't wait to see how all the voting turned out!

Louise said...

You already know my thoughts.....Bon Jovi!! And 11:53 p.m....just in the "nick" of time...aha I crack myself up!
