Who got married to Led Zeppelin music?

Recommended Posts

Lost my virginity to Zeppelin, and ultimately divorced my first husband because of them, but never walked down the aisle to a Zep song.

:rolleyes:

:P:P

My wedding song was "Thank You"- but I had a hard time convincing my husband to go along with it. When we first met he really didn't care for Zeppelin too much, but since I was such a big fan he asked me to make him a tape of what I considered to be the "best of Zeppelin" because he wanted to try to see what I liked about them so much. So I made him the tape & put "Thank You" on there just to see what he thought of it. Well, he liked the tape & he said "Thank You" is a nice song. 10 months later we got engaged, and the subject of a wedding song came up. But when I suggested "Thank You" he said no f-ing way I'm not having Zeppelin at my wedding.

For several months I tried to talk him into it, but he was not budging. The DJ kept calling me asking what song we were going to have & I couldn't give him an answer. 1 week before the wedding my husband called me & said he had just been listening to the tape I made, and especially "Thank You", and then he said that since it meant so much to me he would be happy to have it as our wedding song. Just as he said that, the song on the station I was listening to ended, and "Thank You" came on !

All of my love was my first choice, but i really do like Wonderfull One from Page&Plant. Maybe to even things out Ill play Freedom Song by JPJ. Maybe end the night with Moby Dick from the TSRTS.

For a marriage surely "Trampled Underfoot" would be more appropriate?

That would've been the description of my marriage, for sure.

How about "Nobody's Fault But Mine!" :D

"What is and what should never be" would be another option ;)

I'm not fond of getting married and those classic wedding ceremonies. So a wedding with LZ songs would be at least something different.

After the DJ introduced the wedding party, my wife and I were introduced and I convinced her that we should walk into the opening riff of 'Whole Lotta Love'. She's not a Zep fan but agreed. My family, knowing what a fan I am, thought it was a great idea.

Shame it's only Zep songs. If it was a free choice I'd go for "It's The End Of The World As We Know It" by REM.

I would DEFINATELY get married to Led Zeppelin, I would just havce to get them all to agree and become a bigomest :D hmm I would either get married to Thankyou or Bron-Y-Aur. Whole Lotta Love would be good buh I don't think it would quite set the right atmosphere...meh :)

My wife picked out all of the songs that would be played in Church.

I picked out every song that was played at the reception, and worked with the D-jay on what he wanted to play" because he knows what he's doing" :huh: Well I got news for ya sparky, If I hear "Rocky Top" or the Chicken Dance" you ain't getting paid.

It was a lot of classic rock and some Zep also. The Elders we not amused and some left early, which was fine with me.

If you can't dance to "Misty Mountain Hop" then move along grandma. ;)

I couldn't chose for our first dance between, Thank You, and Thru With The Two Step,

and sorry for anybody who does not like the latter I still think it is one of the coolest slow dance songs you can get. Better than bloody Wonderful tonight anyway!

In the end I had both on cassette, as I couldn't rely on the DJ having them.

We also had Perfect Year by Dina somebody to keep the Mrs. happy, well it had been.

I was able to convince my wife to have "Sea of Love" played as our first song! B) That's as close to Zeppelin I was going to get.

I think i'll play the live version of No Quarter at my wedding, one of the few times when people will be forced to listen to it! (that and my funeral)
