I was surfing around while I eating my dinner and I came across a list of
the top ten songs played at weddings for a couple's first dance. There were
the expected tunes, Whitney Houston singing "I Will Always Love You" was
number ten. Bryan Adams' "Everything I Do (I Do It For You)" was number two.
The number one song, however, was a bit more unexpected. Aerosmith's "Don't Wanna Miss A Thing".
Beg pardon? Aerosmith? The bad boys from beantown? The band that has
been played at more parties unable to be recalled by those in attendance?
Number one on the list of wedding first dance songs?
You just know that there are fathers out there, watching their little girls dance
to this on their wedding day, who can't help but remember getting amazingly,
incredibly wasted while listening to Aerosmith.
The list - in case you were wondering.
#10. "I Will Always Love You" by Whitney Houston
#9. "Angels" by Robbie Williams
#8. "Truly, Madly, Deeply" by Savage Garden
#7. "You're Beautiful" by James Blunt

*From "Get A Grip", should you be wondering about that, too.
