Like most brides, I've been making the bulk of the decisions about our wedding (with my fiance's go-aheadt, of course....) However, one thing that I gave him free reign over was our first dance song. I told him he could pick.
So, the song that he's come up with is "where do you go to my lovely" by Peter Sartdst
He wanted a waltz and really loves the overall feel of the song. he says it makes him feel really happy and that's what he wants to dance to with me.
Well, fair enough. I think it sounds very nice, too. The problem is that I interpret the lyrics a bit differently than him and feel that the meaning of the song is actually quite depressing and definitely does not paint a great picture of the woman in the story. in my opinion, it's about a girl who doesn't care about her past and only cares about material things. He thinks i'm digging too deep and doesn't think anyone would take it like that just upon hearing it played at our dance. He thinks that when you take it on face value, it's just about two people from the same background, trying to make it in the world, who understand each other in a way others don't...
So, I'd really love your thoughts on this. When I told him my concerns I think he was a bit hurt. He, understandably feels like I've gotten to pick most things and he felt like the one thing he really cared about, I'm shooting down. So, am I totally over-thinking this and overreacting? Or is this an inappropriate choice for a first dance?
Thanks for your time!!!
