I’ve been thinking about a really cool way to count down the last few days before our wedding and decided there was no better way than with music.
Our wedding favors are CD’s with some of our favorite love songs. Mike and I each chose 10 songs that have special meaning to us and I’m going to use mine (starting with #10 on the disc) to count down my last days as a single lady. First up in the countdown is Susanne – by Weezer. (see below for video)
As most of you know, Mike and I love Kevin Smith. So much so that Mike asked me to marry him in front of the Quick Stop (the filming location of Kevin’s first movie, Clerks) in Leonardo, New Jersey. Weezer’s song Susanne was on the soundtrack to Kevin Smith’s second movie Mallrats and was used in the ending scenes. It seemed fitting to use as a way to end my half of the CD.
To me, the song is about a woman’s total devotion to her man. She gives him the coat off her back, bakes him brownies to cheer him up and when he calls he’s got her undivided attention. He doesn’t have much to offer her in return, just his heart and a promise to be true. What else do we need, really? Love, admiration and total devotion to each other. That’s it. Everything else is gravy.
