I really have to thank Spotify for my new favorite songs. If I didn’t download that app, I’d be stuck with Air Supply all my life (although you have to admit that’s not bad at all).
Although Le Beau has already picked the world’s most perfect song as our first dance, he still asked me to give my own input. But really, there’s no competing with the song he chose; it was so us! I had to try though, the window of opportunity being there already.
So I stumbled upon Sleeping At Last’s cover of I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles), the original by The Proclaimers. This is one of those Super Bowl songs, and I never really listened to it till now. My effort of not being too mainstream.
I am just so in love with it. I’ve always loved that song, but thanks to that episode in How I Met Your Mother, I feel like the meaning of the song was somehow diluted to a mere driving ballad.
This song is just abundant in love, devotion and commitment.
Of course, it still lost to Le Beau’s selection, being too slow to slow dance to. But now, we have another song to add to our playlist.
And so far, it’s our best find yet.
