Facebook’s 30 Day Song Challenge – Day 23

Day 23 – A song you want played at your wedding. Gene – ‘Why I Was Born’

We’re both Gene fans, my wife and I, so when ‘Drawn To The Deep End’ came out, this song became an obvious choice for a first dance, should we ever get married. I made her wait a few more years, but we got there in the end!

We saw Gene on valentine’s day 1999 – supported by a little-known band called Muse. I remember watching and enjoying them – thinking at the time they sounded a little like dEUS – but thought that they were way too angular and uncommercial to ever be successful. Shows why I’m not in the music business!
