Milestone Music - Colm Molloy - Wedding Band Blunder
Every Tuesday, we dedicate this segment to the songs that bring you right back to a very specific time in your life - first love, exams, moving out from home, backpacking around the world, nights out, nights in, going to college, bad jobs, falling in love, falling out of love, weddings and babies.
For coming on the show and sharing your Milestone Music Moment, we'll send you a lovely momento of your story. You will receive all the elements of the tale - the date, lyrics of the song and more, all on a beautifully finished poster for you to treasure.
This week's Milestone was brought to us by Colm Molloy in Co. Kildare, with a tune which always brings him back to one of Iano's old haunts, Sutton Castle, Co.Dublin, back in 1999.
It was his wedding day, and to his disbelief, the band didn't know their chosen wedding song (even though it had been no.1 for twenty weeks or so). To keep things moving, he asked his best man to get the band to play whatever track they felt best to play instead...and they did.
Now there's nothing wrong with a Celine Dion classic, usually, but Caitriona had some unsettling news for her new hubby. You couldn't make it up!!
The song they wanted was 'Love Is All Around' by Wet Wet Wet, so both that, and the Celine Dion song, are the epitome of a milestone music moment.
Great stuff you two!!
If you've a milestone of your own, we'd love to hear all about it. Email your story to firstname.lastname@example.org
