Before I get too far into this song, I feel I should explain how I found it. Have you ever heard of Hannah Georgas? No? Yeah, I hadn’t either, until I read an article in the Huffington Post about unique first dance songs. So, backing up a little further – H and I don’t have a song. Yet. We don’t have a song yet. Why? How is it that two people can get married without having a song?! Ha. Well, we fit together perfectly in so many ways, but music is not one of them. We do not like each other’s music. It’s mutual. We’re (usually) okay with it. Sometimes I wish he’d listen to some of these songs that I love so much, because they remind me of him, but it’s okay that he doesn’t like them. I like them. That’s all that really matters.
Anyway! My point is, I did an internet search for unique first dance songs for weddings, and this Huffington Post article showed up. And I fell in love with how this Hannah Georgas song sounded. I love interesting beats. And, I mean, this song is called “The Beat Stuff,” so you had to know it was going to have a cool sound, right? So, without further ado:
I ain’t got no fancy ride.
Ain’t got no money to go out tonight.
All I’ve got is this feeling inside.
All I’ve got is this beat-beat inside.
And all I know is what I want.
All I know is what I want is you.
I love it. H did not. Also, it’s a bit too fast for a first dance song. So, even though we’re not going to use it in our wedding, I can still include it here.
And don’t worry, we’re on our way to finding a perfect song. Turns out both H and I like Van Morrison. Who knew?
