The Wedding Couple in the Wind and the Rain

This evening’s melody is recommended by Mila Vecore, a listener who heard our call-out for song suggestions on the radio and made her way to our submissions form. This is exactly the kind of story we were looking for:

Wedding March“My mind (and soul) went straight to a song by an instrumental band, Explosions in the Sky, called “The Birth and Death of the Day.” It is amazing how much emotion it evokes without a single word being expressed. In fact, I chose this as our wedding march and, as if the weather seemed to conspire with the music, an unexpected and very temporary rainstorm hit our outdoor ceremony, only to dissipate shortly thereafter with beautiful sunshine.

Wedding Attendees Run from the RainThis song captured that moment, but every time I listen to it I can tell it would be memorable for many others, for their own reasons, if they just were exposed to it.”

I hadn’t heard this track before. But, after listening to it, you’ll madly long to have attended Mila’s wedding!

A big thanks to exposing us to this album! We’re glad you wrote.

You are so right it is emotional evoking. Had a wonderfull experence with a young lady that was blind visiting Leeper Hardware today. She has been blind since her birth and is now seven and was exploring the store becuase her Grand parents wanted her to experence an old time hardware. I was honored to take her around and let her feel store items and describe them to her. I believe she had fun. this music proved to be a fitting end of a very good day.

Such an awesome track from a great band.  Great story too. Loving the smiles in the middle of the storm.

This is such a cool new feature of the blog. Man, the bar's been set so high already. But it's sending me back to a lot of tracks I've not listened to in ages from different stages of life...

I think perhaps the motto of the tuesday evening melody should be the last line from W.B Yeats He Wishes for the Cloths of Heaven:

"Tread softly because you tread on my dreams."

Precious stuff, this.
