Random question from my husband, on our drive to work:
Husband: “Wifey, what was your theme song with your first boyfriend?”
Me: (thought balloon: Where is this coming from?) “Till Death Do Us Part by White Lion. Ironically.”
Husband: “What about your other boyfriends?”
Me: “Wala! None! Why are you asking me this?”
Husband: “Nothing. Just curious.”
Me: “What about us? Do we have a theme song?”
Husband: “Yes. The one by Mandy Moore.”
Me: “Only Hope? Why?”
Husband: “From our first movie together.”
Me: “I thought it was Best in Me! Diba you said that was your song for me before and then we said that was our theme song?”
Me: “Do you remember?”
Husband: “Hehe, no.”
Keep the love alive with couple theme songs
So we do have a theme song, but apparently we had different ones in mind. We’ve been married for ten years, by the way!
Couple theme songs: If your love were a song, what would it be?
A couple theme song is a song you associate with your partner or your relationship. Back in high school, it was considered so romantic to have that shared song with your partner. Sometimes theme songs from boyfriend-girlfriend days become even more iconic for the couple when they play it during their wedding. The couple theme song could be played when the bride walks down the aisle, at the recessional, or as their entrance to the reception. Sweet, right? A little cheesy too, I must admit.
When relationships don’t work out, the high you get from that theme song becomes painful (if you’re still not over it) or humorous (the irony of my first couple theme song ever comes to mind). My sisters still get a kick out of that Till Death song when we hear it on the radio. I expect to be a target of their teasing when that happens. It can’t be helped! We get a good laugh out of it.
Do young couples nowadays still have theme songs? I ask because it feels like an older generation’s thing.
Do you have a theme song with your partner? Come on and share! The cheesier your couple theme song story is, the better! While you ponder on that, I leave you with our not one, but TWO theme songs. 😉
Only Hope by Mandy Moore
The scene is from her 2002 movie “A Walk to Remember”. It was originally sung by Switchfoot in 1999. Here they are singing it live:
Only Hope by Switchfoot
Beautiful, ‘no? Now here’s what I thought our theme song was:
Best in Me by Blue
So what’s YOUR couple theme song? Share, share! Post the lyrics too! 😉
