    Hi there! I'm not sure how active this forum is, but it seemed like a good place to seek advice! My fiance and I love to country dance together (although we can't go as often as we'd like!). When we get married next year, we have thought about doing a traditional slow song dance, followed by a Schottische, because it's one of our favorites to do together. So, now I'm trying to find a song that at least has some "love" theme to it, but would be the right beat for this dance. We like to do it with a quick pace! The only one I've heard on the radio, and could feel my feet doing a schottishe, is Patty Loveless's song "Lovin' All Night" (a remake actually, but I forget original artist).

    Any other suggestions out there!? Thanks in advance!

    try the beatles' "lucy in the sky with diamonds" - it starts as a waltz & transitions into a schottische in the same song.

    Two more very traditional songs:

    Mr Man In The Moon - Patty Loveless
    Sweetheart Schottische - Issac Payton Sweat

    The second being more romantic . . .

    Why . . . I didn't know you did C&W dancing?

    i don't! but the schottische is a historical dance step, and if it's similiar to the C&W version, then the beatles song would work pretty well.

    Yes! Wow, thanks for all the ideas! I'm not familiar with all of the songs mentioned, but I'll check them out. I really appreciate the suggestions! Special thanks to Rick (Mt2stepper) for taking time to provide such a long list of possibilities! I still have plenty of time before the wedding to decide, but it's nice to be giving it some thought. Certainly more fun than thinking about the catering budget and such! :)
