Because W. is not a lover of love songs and is quite oblivious to lyrics, I’ve chosen mostly instrumentals.
One time he said to me – hey! That’s our song! (Cecilia, you’re breaking my heart, You’re shaking my confidence daily…..I get up to wash my face
When I come back to bed Someone’s taken my place…)
THAT’S our song? Have you listened to the words? And of course he hadn’t, he just liked the beat. And maybe we’d danced to it at some point in our relationship and that’s what stuck in his mind about it. I asked him if we could play “If you can’t be with the one you love, love the one you’re with” at our wedding, and he said Sure, whatever you want.
So my point is, agonizing over the exact sentimental content is a waste of time in this case. Best just give him what he likes.
I’ve been subjected to a lot of Jesse Cook guitar, and it’s very good but please put on some head phones after hour 15.
