Have a wonderful Valentine's Day
This song was the first dance song at my wedding reception. As most of you know, my husband was from Germany. I got to thinking about him tonight and so I picked this song for my Valentine's post.........The version I loved was not Anne Murray's but I can't remember the other singer, so I thought I'd play the Murray version and see how it was.........I clicked on it and the introduction is in German, you'll hear it. There are probably 25 versions of Murray singing that song on video, and I "picked" the German one?
Sometimes there are coincidences.............sometimes they aren't coincidences.
Happy Valentine's Day, honey. Ich liebe dich sehr.
And Happy Valentine's Day to all of you loyal, wonderful GeeeZers.
Now I have to tell you the truth. That was SUPPOSED to be the first dance for us at our wedding, but the band was terrific and, for some reason, they did a good "Sittin' on the Dock of the Bay," or we just couldn't wait to dance together, because we danced to that before our 'first official dance!'
Also, "Can I have this dance.." at our wedding had been recorded by me. We danced to ME singing. That was an amazing feeling, believe me. I wish I still had that recording now.
On one of our anniversaries, we were driving up to Santa Barbara, and the first song that came on the radio when I turned it on was "Sittin' on the Dock of the Bay,"...weird. huh?
