    Which means that first place in this round with 21 points goes to
    Deja Boo!

    The Very Thought of You – Chris Botti

    Have I listened to this artist before? No
    Have I listened to this song before? No



    That intro was just sublime. I love the saxophone. Simply gorgeous. Saxophone just hits different. And her voice!! Wow. I loved this so much. One of my favourite finds of the walrus so far. Quite different to the other submissions too which I think helped. Partly because if it’s instrumental I won’t ruin the moment by trying to sing along during the first dance, but that’s beside the point.

    Black Balloon – The Kills

    I liked this song, but definitely not as a first dance song! Sounds more like a soong about depression which doesn’t really meet my hope for happy wedding vibes. Also no idea how you’d dance to this. I kept expecting it to transform into a mosh pit style song with all the guests headbanging in a circle around the dancefloor…

    If you think weddings are happy affairs then there's no hope for you.

    Congrats DejaBoo, Necro's choice would have been my entry / pick :)

    Really like that Marc Cohen number too.

    JGF - have you picked your song (or had your wedding since) and what did you choose, if I can ask?

    I had friends go with How Long Will I Love You (the more up beat Jon Boden version) for there's :D

    Also love that you tested them out properly :D

    Cheers JGF, that's tomorrow's playlist sorted, though I fear there's some slush there :pac:

    When The Stars Go Blue – Ryan Adams

    I wasn’t really a fan of this one – it’s grand but the song seems very generic – I felt like I had heard it before but I’m pretty sure I hadn’t ever heard it. Also, I don’t know if I’m missing something, but why are the stars going blue? (This may have distracted me for longer than I am willing to admit.)

    Was this in One Tree Hill?

    Also Starring Levar Burton

    A Trick of The Light – The Villagers

    Have I listened to this artist before? No
    Have I listened to this song before? No



    This is an excellent song but can’t dance to it. Awkward swaying or side to sides on the drum beats?? (Am I just outing myself as having no rhythm at all that I can’t dance to anything?) Just doesn’t have the first dance fit for me.

    Levar, I fear I may have treated you poorly here. When I was listening to it I knew I had heard it before in relation to something else but couldn't put my finger on it.
    Watching tv last night and I realised it's being used as the theme tune to the new RTE show Smother, about the family investigating the death of their father... subconciously I knew it didn't fit right for a wedding after that!! :rolleyes::rolleyes:

    Ah here, I'm not sure which is worse, that I had to pick a song for a first dance at a wedding (I hate weddings ;)) or to find out that there are people who still willingly watch RTÉ in 2021... :pac:

    You need to assert dominance by announcing yours now and letting them worry about how they'll fit around you.

    Thats really lovely. Reminds me of a lot of Cowboy bebop anime stuff with heavy focus on the sax and a beautiful female singing voice. Very nice :D
