I found a new blog today; the writer is planning a wedding (or living on the outskirts of the planning) with his fiancee. In one great post, he describes why he should get to come down the aisle to “Eye of the Tiger.”
Here’s an excerpt (fifth entry down):
“[Eye of the Tiger is] all about rising above adversity (dating) defeating a bitter rival (psycho ex-boyfriend) and ultimately triumphing when no one thought you could (getting married means I’m finally mature, right?).
The way I picture it is the second the first note blasts from the speakers, I kick open the doors and come trotting inside the room. As I make my way down the aisle, maybe I point at a couple people who believed in me, then get some high fives as I take my place up front.”
Awesome. Groom’s often have cakes (Matt refuses, insisting–correctly–that the actual wedding cake is his, too), why not a special song that captures the moment for them? I’d like to know what everyone’s song would be… this would be a good dinner party game. For us, “Eye of the Tiger” is already taken, as it’s my thesis-writing song.
