Day 23 – a song that you want to play at your wedding

Van Morrison – Into the mystic

This was an easy choice since I’m already married.

I first heard this song when we were producing a video for beanscene, the coffee house franchise. The owner had requested songs which he felt suited the particular moods of beanscene, one of which was Van Morrison.

A few years later Clare and I went to the cinema to see American Pie 3 (The wedding one). An okay movie with an amazing club dance scene, the film ends with two of the main characters getting married. Their first dance is this song, and it looked to elegant in a film of comedy mishaps that I knew I’d have to have it.

Clare and I set a date soon afterwards and made this our first dance.
