4 Songs That Are “Ours”

Boyfriend and I are probably the worst couple in the world because neither of us know our exact anniversary date… we just know it was in the first week of November so, we always say it’s on the 1st of the month. πŸ˜‰ We also can’t remember if our first date was the Suicide Girls Burlesque Show or a circus show at the Xcel Energy Center.

In celebration of our 5 years together, here are FOUR (I WISH we had five) songs that we actually can agree on that are “so us” and we both really consider “our songs.


OKAY, this song isn’t 100% PERFECT for us but, if you listen to the lyrics, it’s pretty close. Thankfully, boyfriend has tons more respect for me than MGK has for this girl. When we first heard Baddest, I was like, “was this written about me?


Boyfriend was with a straight edge gal WHEN he first met me and um, just read our love story: here. The lyrics, “Am I wrong for thinking out the box from where I stay? / Am I wrong for saying that I choose another way? / So am I wrong / For thinking that we could be something for real?” were his exact thoughts. He later told me that when I used to play this song while we first started hanging out, he always felt that it was for him (but, honestly, I just really liked it at the time, lol).


When boyfriend and I met, I was NOT ready to settle into a monogamous relationship. I was having fun being single. The line, “why did you steal my cotton candy heart,” replayed in my head every time I was with him!!! And then, one night, we were at a party, dancing to this song, I’ll always remember he patted my head at the line, “you must be this tall / to ride this ride” and I swooned. To me, it felt like the line, “chasing you is like fairytale.” And now, I’m living in one?? HOW!?


This will be our wedding song, the one we have our first dance to as husband and wife. Every single word, from beginning to end, is our love story. We went through it all. I have no shame.

  1. It’s so cute that you have 4 songs that are so you! My husband & I don’t have a ton, but our first dance had to be Wonderful Tonight by Eric Clapton and When I’m 64 by the Beatles 😊 It’s nice having those songs that you can both relate to in your relationship

  2. This is sweet, Hunida! Our anniversary is in November too. I have to laugh because my husband and I usually forget the exact date. Ongoing joke. πŸ˜‚ Luckily it’s engraved on the inside of our wedding rings. We usually just celebrate it in the month. Some people cringe at that, but I’ve never been the ‘I expect cards or gifts’ type.

    Love your song list and Happy anniversary! β™₯️

    1. Thank you, Mischenko! Happy anniversary to you, too! ❀ I'm actually relieved to know we aren't the only ones who forget our exact date lol. Boyfriend & I don't really do gifts, either! & we celebrate whenever convenient, too. Some people need to loosen up, eh?

  6. Goodness, this is so adorable! I melted when I scrolled down a bit and saw you mention your wedding song! That’s definitely one of my favourite songs from James Arthur. Reading how you felt about Carousel is so beautiful – I feel like you can literally feel how much you love your boyfriend.

    Happy anniversary! ❀

    1. Aw thank you, Claire!! ❀ I don't really know other songs by James Arthur but, when I heard Say You Won't Let Go, I knew it was going to be our wedding song. Carousel still gives me the feels, lol, I'm so soft. πŸ˜› Do you & Dan have any songs?


  7. It’s so cuteee!! I havent heard of any of these songs but I love that you guys have a little playlist. This is honestly so adorable!! I hope you guys kept on celebrating because 5 years is a long time!
    Alex and I love music so much we have a long playlist. It’s actually how AyR Galaxy came to be, it all started with music and that was the name of our playlist lmao.
