Tuesday Tunes: The soundtrack

As in the soundtrack for our eventual wedding. Yep.

You are privileged indeed.

First off, I want to walk down the aisle to Can’t Take My Eyes Off Of You, just as the brass starts.

I know, I know. There are so many great versions. The original…the Muse version… the Heath Ledger version, which is especially close to my heart. I see him and Julia Stiles in that movie – one of the first I ever saw at the cinema – as a precursor to Jessica and Marcus in the Sloppy Firsts series (how good would they have been to play the characters in a film adaptation?). In turn, I see Jessica and Marcus as having so many parallels to me and T for a host of reasons.

So I told him this. To which he responded: “Why can’t you just be NORMAL?”

I thought you knew who you were marrying, boy.

I was never going to go for Here Comes the Bride, was I? (It’s a bit overdone…) Fun fact: in our early semi-courtship, for some reason, I found myself humming that tune quite frequently when we were together. I still have no idea why.

    Oh man, I sang Can’t Take My Eyes Off Of You, some of it, to my wife in front of our bridal party before we got married. That Heath and Julia Stiles scene is pretty cool. What’s wrong with not being normal? Haha. Your soundtrack is awesome. Just between you and me, boy bands have some danceable tunes and who doesn’t like getting up to dance? When’s the big day? Exciting times, soak in every moment!
