Day 14- A song that you would love played at your wedding
“Wild Horses” / The Sundays (1992)
The first time I heard this song was while watching “The Prom” episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Buffy invites Angel to her senior prom but he breaks up with her and tells her that he is skipping town after graduation. While ordinary girls would have a wallowing period, Buffy has to launch immediately into kick ass mode, preventing hell hounds from attacking prom. After readily defeating them she goes to her prom in a gorgeous gown and this song starts playing and Angel appears from them to have one last dance together. It’s a beautiful scene that makes me cry every single time I watch it and is the first thing that comes to mind when I hear this song.
Despite it sounding a little sad, I would like to play the song at some hypothetical future wedding. It’s very pretty and because of the Buffy associations, romantic in my head. It would be a big toss up on whether or not to play this cover or the original by The Rolling Stones. Gotta love them both.
