What’s makes a statement that you have just committed yourself to spend the rest of your life with one person than the simple words “One Love?” To even the most casual listener Bob Marley = “reggae” And this song is certainly one of his most famous. The instantly recognizable reggae beat is joyous in its simplicity and the melody is strong enough to work as an instrumental. And it’s guaranteed to put a smile on the faces of your friends and loved ones as they head toward the cocktail hour. It’s certainly not an overwhelming song to overpower the actual recession. It’s just a perfect little melody and groove to commemorate the moment of the very first moments of your marriage. Even though the vocals aren’t ever sung during the recessionals, you can see why these unsung lyrics are perfect for saying “I love you” after your “I dos!”
One love, one heart
Let’s get together and feel all right.
Hear the children cryin’ (One Love)
Hear the children cryin’ (One Heart)
Sayin’, give thanks and praise to the Lord and I will feel all right;
Sayin’, let’s get together and feel all right.
This is one of the best suggestions I have for recessionals, because of the fun and immediate recognizability of the reggae classic “One Love.” It’s guaranteed to get your guests up and dancing, following you down the aisle…headed for your unforgettable party.
Let me know what you think.
