Is there a certain song that always makes you and your partner say “awww” and turn up the volume when it comes on? Is there a song you love to slow dance to, or one that makes you giggle, or one whose lyrics seem so perfectly to describe your relationship? If so, that might just be your song.

A lot of couples have a song they think of as “theirs.” It speaks to them and defines their relationship in some way. Even if they break up, they’ll always think of their time together when they hear that song—whether they want to remember their relationship or not.

Find out which songs define Ella and Amy’s relationships.

Amy:  So, my cousin is getting married, and she’s trying to figure out what song she wants to play when she walks down the aisle.

Ella:  They don’t have a song already? I mean, there’s a song for each relationship, I mean one would think.

Amy:  Yeah, I mean, I guess there’s supposed to be. But it made me think about, you know, do I have a song? Like, what song would I pick if I were getting married to my boyfriend? And we don’t really have a song.

Ella:  Really?

Amy:  No.

Ella:  Every boyfriend I’ve ever had, we’ve always had a song.

Amy:  Really?

Ella:  So, you know…

Amy:  How does it become “your song”?

Ella:  You know, I don’t really remember. It’s just like, whoa, we both kinda like the artist, and then it’s like, whoa, we both kinda like this song, oh, I guess this is our song. And it’s like…with my last relationship, it was any John Legend song. And before that it was any punk rock song. I mean, there were specific ones but there was always kind of like a theme to the relationship.

Amy:  Huh. So, was that a pretty intense relationship when your song was like a punk song? I mean, isn’t “your song” usually sort of like romantic…

Ella:  One would think so. But you know, you’re seventeen, you want to rebel. It’s like, yeah, punk songs, this brings us closer. I’m pretty sure it was like an All-American Rejects song or something like that, so we felt pretty bad ass.

Amy:  Yeah. That’s cool. I should get a song.

Amy’s cousin is getting married, and she wants to pick out a personal song to play while she walks down the aisle. Ella is surprised that Amy’s cousin and her fiance don’t already have a special song that defines their relationship.

Amy doesn’t know what her song with her boyfriend would be, either. Ella, on the other hand, has had a special song for every relationship she has been in. Usually a song becomes “their song” when both Ella and the guy she is with realize that they both love the same artist. Typically a couple’s special song is a slow, romantic song, but Ella had one relationship whose special songs were all punk songs.

Have you and a partner ever had a special song? How did it become “your song”?

Yeah I have ever had many song that make me remember some people…And for each one I had a music…And till now when I listen to some musics I remember that person with care just it and nothing more :)

For a song being "yours" I guess the couple should be in a special place and in a special moment and when it play "that" song that marcs that determined moment ;)

My boyfriend always send me massages of some romantic song lyrics, and I try to search the songs and have a listen, so every time I heard the songs, they recall me of him..

I always remember him when I hear 'Everything – Michael Bublé'... Wether I want to, or not. It became our song 'cause we really like Michael and his songs. Well, I really wish I could forget it, but I cannot. lol

 

today, I don't hear that song anymore. But when I do, I remember him. It's sad sometimes.

There is always a specail song or melody in the heart of any person that is truely in love. The reason why i said is because love itself speaks words of melodies.

a song?? it can be funny but I when I had a girlfriend – We broke up – our relationship theme was that music called ''your song" by john Lenon. Even today, when I hear that one I got miself inside my heart deeply. I don't miss her, but I can't deny memories. I think anyone can avoid it too.

It's not a bad thing to have a song that represents something. This happens with me a lot of times, like my mother and father, my sisters, my first love, etc.

It's a awesome thing on the most of times. So, a tip: enjoy your song.
