Let’s sing together!

At the end of December I attended a wedding of a dear close friend, I remember her saying although it was a civil ceremony she desperately wanted guests to sing. We talked about different options but the final choice was a surprise on the day and I’m so glad it was. The song she choose, not the EASIEST to sing that’s for sure, but is one I listen to on my IPOD and many clients have had this as their first dance – what was it? Al Green ‘Let’s stay together’. I simply adore and love this song and frequently sing it (badly) when at home so I was ecstatically pleased this was what she choose.

What made it memorable was the fact the notes are hard to reach so at those points people would be quiet and giggling then when the chorus came everyone would shout it out as if to say ‘Listen to me’! Mind you, maybe that’s the Essex personas coming out, we’re not the quiet and reserved types!

So I’m on a mission to encourage more bride & grooms to have a song for their civil ceremonies. What do you think? Love or loath? For a listen to the man itself go to here  . And for those interested in the words for Al Green here it is!

I’m, I’m so in love with you
Whatever you want to do
Is alright with me
‘Cause you make me feel, so brand new
And I want to spend my life with you

Me sayin’ since, baby, since we’ve been together
Ooo, loving you forever
Is what I need
Let me, be the one you come running to
I’ll never be untrue
Ooo baby

Let’s, let’s stay together
Loving you whether, whether
Times are good or bad, happy or sad

Oooo oooo ooo ooo, yeah
Whether times are good or bad, happy or sad

Why somebody, why people break up
Oh, and turn around and make up
I just can’t seeeeeeeee
You’d never do that to me
(Would you baby)
‘Cause being around you is all I see
It’s why I want us to

Let’s, let’s stay together
Loving you whether, whether
Times are good or bad, happy or sad

Let’s, let’s stay together
Loving you whether, whether
