Music - the high notes and low notes

The good news:
We've FINALLY settled on our first dance song!!! We've been largely undecided for a myriad of reasons that aren't worth going into but whatever the case, we've got it together now. We will be using "Groovy Kind of Love" by Phil Collins.

It's definitely an "old school" kind of song but it's actually the first song that we danced to together (why in the heck was it even a question for us to pick this then, right?) and also, the lyrics completely apply to us as a couple. And no matter how "old school" and 97.1 After hours/Glenn Hollis it might be *haha* - it's really classic, in my opinion.

Here are the lyrics if you don't know them by heart:

When I'm feeling blue, all I have to do
Is take a look at you, then I'm not so blue
When you're close to me, I can feel your heart beat
I can hear you breathing near my ear
Wouldn't you agree, baby you and me got a groovy kind of love

Anytime you want to you can turn me onto
Anything you want to, anytime at all
When I kiss your lips, ooh I start to shiver
Can't control the quivering inside
Wouldn't you agree, baby you and me got a groovy kind of love, oh

When I'm feeling blue, all I have to do
Is take a look at you, then I'm not so blue
When I'm in your arms, nothing seems to matter
My whole world could shatter, I don't care
Wouldn't you agree, baby you and me got a groovy kind of love
We got a groovy kind of love
We got a groovy kind of love, oh
We got a groovy kind of love


I think it's so sweet! I'm really excited that this is what we settled on because there were some songs that we kicked around that we both really like but none of them are really well-known enough for us to hear them on the radio (for future's sake) and be like, "Hey! That's our song!!!" Because isn't that the point of having a song with someone in the first place?


The bad news:
Remember when I discovered that wedding CD with that really cool version of the Bridal March sung by a German choir and I was all happy and everything??? As it turns out, we aren't going to be able to use it. We were very gently informed this morning at church that it actually has pagan origins! *shock* We are such young and unknowing Lutherans! *yucky face* Kind of stinky because we really did like that version but the one with the choir singing it in German ESPECIALLY has the pagan origins. *shrug* Back to the drawing board for that part of the ceremony music. We are going to be working closely with the music director of our church to figure out music that IS okay and NOT pagan.

"Here Comes the Bride" is considered Pagan by the Lutheran church? What do Lutheran brides normally walk down the aisle to? I never knew that Lutherans didn't use "here comes the bride" in their ceremonies...learn something new everyday I guess.

It's actually more a thing of the fact that Wagner (the composer of Here comes the Bride) was also the author of lots of pagan writings and things. It's an association kind of thing more than it being a specifically pagan song.
