Keep on dancing

Kate and Nick write from Ithaca (we’re guessing New York, not Greece): My (now) husband and I fell in love with one another in April of 2001 while we listening to And Then Nothing Turned Itself Inside-Out.  When we were married in Geneseo, NY on September 4th, 2005 our first dance was to “Our Way To Fall.”  On September 4th, 2006, I put on my wedding dress and we danced to it for our anniversary.   Whenever we hear it, we stop and dance with one another, and often dance to it on our anniversary.   We made a mix cd for our guests with “Our Way to Fall” on it, and since then two of our friends used that song at their weddings.  The first set of friends played it as the song that got the dancing started in our honor, the second set of friends used the song in their mix cd of all the wedding songs of their married friends as a party favor.   We love your music!  Thank you for how your music has enhanced our lives.  

Four years later, another wedding, another first dance to “Our Way to Fall.”  And another bridegroom named Nick!  From Oakland (presumably California and not New Jersey) comes this email from him and Anna: My wife and I selected your song–“Our Way to Fall”–for our first dance at our wedding on September 4th, 2009. Absolutely fantastic song.

Also on this date, we played with Half Japanese in Nürnberg.  During our encore, Jad sang “Around and Around” and four of his classics with us.  It would really tie things up nicely if “Our Way to Fall” were part of the set, but the show took place in 1995, five years before we wrote the song.
