Everybody loves the song, “At Last.” Based on the number of times it is requested at Chicagoland weddings, it may be the perfect first dance song for you.
It’s hard to believe it was written 77 years ago for a movie called “Sun Valley Serenade.” The movie may not have been that memorable, but the song sure was.
A sign of a good song
A sign of a good song is one that the top singers of the day are still singing it. This creates wonderful opportunities for you at your wedding reception, because you have rich choices. If you are as enthralled by these lyrics as so many other couples are …
At Last my love has come along
My lonely days are over
And life is like a song
Ohh yeah, yeah
At Last the skies above are blue
My heart was wrapped up in clover
The night I looked at you.
I found a dream, that I could speak to
A dream that I can call my own
I found a thrill to rest my cheek to
A thrill that I have never known
Ohh yeah, yeah
And then the spell was cast
And here we are in heaven
For you are mine
… then “At Last” may be the perfect first dance song for you.
