Most of the great romance movies have a moment when a love song is played at a poignant moment. That song becomes the special theme song for that couple. Then every time the audience or couple hears it, they are reminded of the couple’s love.

When I hear these songs and the scenes they are in I just sigh. It is the awe moment in a movie.

Here are a couple that I love from the movies:

Armageddon – “Don’t Want To Miss A Thing” Aerosmith


Top Gun – “Take My Breath Away” Berlin

Titanic – “My Heart Will Go On” Celine Dion

The Body Guard – “I Will Always Love You” Whitney Houston

When my husband and I first fell in love we had a special song, too. Over the years we added another one. Every time I hear it, I get all doe-eyed and look at my husband. I remember the sweet roses in my mailbox, notes on my dashboard, and good-nights at the doorway.

At our wedding I sang this song. Crazy on such a nerve-wracking day to sing, right? But it was something I wanted to do and I don’t regret it. Although I admit, wedding dresses are not made for their breathe-ability. It may have been the most breathy rendition of the song ever.

Love makes us do crazy things. After all, any epic adventure requires a theme song and nothing is more adventurous than romance. We experience roller coaster emotions and do things we would have never considered before. A song is absolutely required.

No matter how many years pass, our song takes me back. Cheesy, or not, I love it. Here is our song:

“Valentine” – Martina McBride

What is your love song?

      Thanks, Pat! I have to admit, I am a sucker for Romantic Movie Songs. Many people tried to talk me out of singing at my wedding. I’m glad I didn’t listen. I remember looking in my husband’s eyes and singing. Don’t regret it for a minute.
