There are two unconventional/obscure songs that (when) DP and I can get legally married, I want played. Yes, we've had two small wedding ceremonies. No, that doesn't mean that I can't have a 'real' one when it's legal, and darn it, I want one where I don't have to do anything but be the bride on my wedding day for once!
One is the James Taylor song "New Hymn" - http://www.lyricsfreak.com/j/james+taylor/new+hymn_20069195.html
It's sort of an invocation to all the power of the world - God, science, love, life. Makes me cry, often, hearing it - it's just so powerful.
The other one is really light hearted, and lovely, and was what I thought of when DP gave me my engagement ring. She had a really hard time affording anything, and then stumbled into a sale and was able to buy me *two* of the same ring (it's a tiny eternity set, 1/4 carat total each, but with two soldered together it goes from 'tiny ring' to something really magnificent - a metaphor for marriage if I've ever heard one!). It's called "Cracker Jack Ring", by a family friend, Pierce Pettis. http://www.newreleasetuesday.com/lyricsdetail.php?lyrics_id=50719
My favorite part?
"I worked a whole year Ė toil, sweat and tears, and I sold my red Trans Am,
Baby, I donít mind Ė Iíd do it anytime, just to put that ring on your hand,
Itís just a little stone, and donít think I donít know you could do a lot better than me,
Iím such a lucky guy and, baby, that is why that ainít no cracker jack ring."
