A minute’s noise for John
When we got married last year, the choice of music at the ceremony was of course important to us. We were allowed three songs, and this is what we chose:
1. Played as people were walking in
John Lennon urges everyone to step this way and it’s the start to an incredible opening. It got the choice because we knew that marriage was indeed going to be magical and mysterious. The alternative was Talking Heads’ Road to Nowhere. I thought people might not get that as it appears to be negative, but I find it liberating and quite spritual.
2. Played as we signed the wedding register
This felt like our song during the first few months of going out. Not only is it an astonishing tune, it’s also uplifting and expressed what we were feeling
And I feel like
Some bird of paradise
My bad fortune slipping away
And I feel the
Innocence of a child
Everybody’s got something good to say
Things I once thought
In my life
Have all taken place
3. As people leave after the ceremony
Sally was brought up in Wales, so this bilingual song felt appropriate. However, Gorky’s are one of my very favourite bands, and as it breaks into Welsh, the lyrics are again beautiful and touching
Mae’n bwrw glaw
So dal fy llaw
Ond mae’r gaeaf mor hir
Mae’n cymryd gormod or tir
So hold my hand
But the winter’s so long
It takes too much of the land
Messing around with editing video to beats. Not quite there, but fun to do

I always thought this scene in Pulp Fiction was a nod to Psycho, so I made this video.
