Marilyn’s Playlist

Listen to Marilyn’s style on some of her favourite love songs.

At Last by Etta James is a classic piece of music that I believe reflects the way it feels when you know you have finally found that person you can share your life with.

It Had To Be You, made famous by the performances of this song in a number of films, such as Dooley Wilson in Casablanca,1942, Diane Keaton in Annie Hall, 1977 and by Harry Connick Jr. when this song was played at the end of the romantic comedy When Harry Met Sally. When Harry and Sally finally realize they are meant to be together, it reminds us to appreciate the fantastic inevitability of true love.

I Want To Hold Your Hand, is one of the many Beatle’s tunes that just get better and better as you listen to it over time. This song speaks to the romantic simplicity and yet significance of just holding the hand of your partner. You know you’ve “got that something,” when this song rings true.

Love Me Tender, I love to sing this song. It is a timeless love song that has been recorded and sung by many people over the past number of decades since 1956 when Elvis made it famous. At that time there were 1 million advance orders for this beautiful song. It has subsequently been recorded by diverse singing artists such as BB King, Tony Bennett and Andrea Bocelli.

Ave Maria. I find that when I sing this beautiful piece, it has a meditative and spiritual quality that is transportive. You may wish to select this song to add the sacred nature of your wedding ceremony.
