And so, on Friday, Sarge and I were sitting around talking wedding music with my Dad and Anne. Our song is ‘The Book of Love’, and that’s what I’d like to walk/roll/whatever down the aisle to. (We’d like to get piped out after the deed is done, but that’s possibly another post.)
The thing is this. I like the Peter Gabriel version:
And Sarge likes the Magnetic Fields’ original:
And so so, we thought we’d put it to a vote.

PS. We first heard this on a road-trip with friends, and not on Scrubs. Neither of us were really into it, and missed the final episode. There’s that, too.
I’ve decided that the only way to get a more random selection of songs than my version of this list is to ask me what song is playing in my head at any given time. Don’t worry, I won’t make a series out of that trunk of tenuous connections.
I associate this beautiful song with a very ugly, but appropriate to the song time in my life. To this day when I find it on, I must skip it, turn it off or have a moment to myself.
