Of these two song, what would you rather dance your first dance to at your reception?

Okay guys, I know how you love polls.

I have this same poll up on other chat forums I frequent, and I intend to add up everything and use it as ammunition in the disagreement that my fiancee and I are having about this.
There's no date set, so we have lots of time to hash this out, but this is (so far) the only thing we can't agree on.
I'm not going to tell you what each of us wants. No bias voting.

In case you need a 'refresher' as to what they sound like, here are the links to youtube.

Love of a Lifetime

A Whole New World

Thanks guys. At least this time my poll is music related.

How about "Brand New Day" by Sting? That's a lovely wedding ballad

That is a nice song, but I've had my heart set on one of these songs since I was a kid........but my fiancee wants the other. So we're down to these two.
Plus; we really want a slow dance for the first dance, and 'Brand New Day' isn't exactly a 'slow' song.

I thought the bride always got the choice, make sure you tell Jeff that!

Definitely NOT the Firehouse song, the only thing worse than dancing is power ballads

Well, I think traditionally you're correct. Not sure; but since we share in all decision making and I mean all.... so......
By the way, FireEagle, you're wrong. I want 'A Whole New World'.
D'oh! Tricked me into telling. J/K

A Whole New World!

As much as I enjoy the Firehouse song, it doesn't hold a candle to the technical abilities of Peabo and Regina...The song is also much better written. The dynamics are better and there is a guitar solo spot too...

However if you both make the decisions together 50-50 (which is weird to me), you should dance to both of them...One after the other back to back! That would put a personal spin on it as well as not letting one of you down...

Good thinking, but then we'll end up arguing about what song comes first.
We are doing that for my dance with my father. We're going to start with 'Daddy's Little Girl' and segue into 'Speak Softly Love', that's his favorite song. We're not going to tell him though, I can't wait to see his reaction.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PQBW6G0hSrs

As far as everything 50-50, we agreed when we moved in together a couple of years ago to split everything. Better to 'argue' something out, come to a compromise than have one of us feel we've not had our say or gotten anything out of whatever it was we disagreed on.
Se we're sticking to that with everything.
I may just suggest we dance to both songs. In that case; I'll use the polls to argue what's first.
I still think 'A Whole New World' is the much better choice of the two, but I can see why he likes 'Love of a Lifetime' too. Though I don't particularly like the song that much. Didn't they do a 'countryfied' version of it? I seem to remember hearing one, or maybe it was a cover by a country band.........I can't remember for sure, or find it online......anyone help a girl out with that?

I made a lot of money playing Love of a Lifetime at weddings in the early 90's.
