This is a track from Mid Air, the debut solo album by The Blue Nile frontman Paul Buchanan. Speaking with Spinner, he explained the background to the song. "Weddings can be like Christmas or Thanksgiving: It all comes to the surface - emotion, family, love, memories, hopes and long held hurts. This was in my mind, started by a sign I saw in a local hotel: Wedding Party - one sign for all these couples starting out. All of this, and the memory of leaving a wedding one night, helping an old man to his taxi. 'The band were good,' he said. Except there had been no band, only a disc jockey spinning records. Of such frailty and happiness's are we made."
