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
