Given New York state’s legalization of same-sex marriage — by a GOP-controlled legislature, no less! — it seems like a good day to resume this series. (So close to being finished!)
I’m going to assume this is meant to mean “first dance” kind of stuff and not, say, “The Chicken Dance,” but without having the boyfriend and backstory that would impart sentimental meaning to a selection, this is all pure conjecture.
That said: “The Book of Love” by Magnetic Fields (lyrics here, listen here) is pretty hard to beat as a love song, and whoever I end up with is probably gonna need to agree about that. (I would probably opt for the Peter Gabriel cover, though.)
