Not Your Typical Love Song

Do you and your significant other have a song? Whether it was the song that played for your first dance on your wedding day or a song that reminds you of the time period when you first met; it’s a song that makes you think of each other.

Scott and I have a song, but it’s not a typical love song. I don’t remember where we were going, but we were in the car. Scott was driving and I told him that we needed a song that was ours. I brought it up as more of a joke then anything else so we laughed and decided that the next song that came on the radio would be our official song.

It was 2003 and this song was very popular. A few key phrases will remind most people of this song when they hear them such as “shake it like a polaroid picture”.

Yes, our song is Hey Ya by Outkast. If you are unfamiliar with the lyrics, it is a very upbeat song that talks about a failing relationship and that “nothing lasts forever”. It is pretty much the opposite of happily ever after.

Hey Ya is on one of my regular playlists and every time I hear it I smile, and I am reminded of those early days when we first fell in love. So maybe it is a love song after all.
