Over the years I have listened to my fair share of love songs. I love songs that can take you to a feeling you have felt before and make you feel it all over again. Do you know what I mean? Sure you do. They are feelings we have all felt.
I have written a few too. I wrote my wedding song and 4 or 5 more for my wife over the years. I was playing my guitar this evening trying to remember some of the ones I have written. I have a couple of favorites out of the bunch. Some still need some work, but it was that thought that counted.
In 2007 a friend of mine, Ryan, was getting married. He and his bride to be, Chelsea, were discussing what music should be played at their wedding. I was to be the best man, so I had an interest in what they picked. She is beyond musically talented. So, I suggested that she write her song. She kinda laughed it off, until she was riffing on the piano and I asked her to play a section again. I sang a couple lines from a chorus I came up with while she was playing. A really good song ensued.
She later sent me an email telling me what kind of things she wanted to say in the song. I took her suggestions and ran with them. Together We Will Go is a song I am very proud of. Chelsea wrote the piano part and I wrote the words and supplied the melody. We took the song to a recording studio where she recorded the piano track. I was able to use the track she made to sing at the wedding. It was very cool to have the bride playing the piano, while at the same time standing at the front with her groom.
It was an easy song to write. Granted, most of the thoughts that are expressed in it are feelings I have for Marixa, so I was writing from the heart.
Check the song out and let me know what you think. I really like this tune.
