Just the Two of Us

We asked celebrity couples to reveal their special song

CARMEN ELECTRA & DAVE NAVARRO: ‘Teardrop’ by Massive Attack. “It’s really sexy, moody, vibey music,” says Electra.

REBECCA ROMIJN-STAMOS & JOHN STAMOS: ‘God Only Knows’ by the Beach Boys. “It was originally sung by Carl Wilson, a dear friend of ours who passed away six months before we got married,” says Romijn-Stamos. “But Brian Wilson came to our wedding and sang along with the recording we had.”

DAVID ARQUETTE & COURTENEY COX ARQUETTE: ‘When She Believes’ by Ben Harper. “It reminds me a lot of Courteney,” says Arquette.

DAVID BOREANAZ & JAIME BERGMAN: Pink Floyd’s ‘Wish You Were Here.’ “On our first date I mentioned I liked Pink Floyd, and when we got ready to go home, he had the CD in his car,” says Bergman.

BEN STILLER & CHRISTINE TAYLOR: ‘Love of My Life’ by Santana and Dave Matthews. “It came out right around the time that we got engaged,” says Taylor.

BROOKE SHIELDS & CHRIS HENCHY: The Beatles’ ‘In My Life.’ “Brooke is a great dancer, and I can’t dance. So before we got married, I showed up at this dance studio for private lessons,” says Henchy. “Their best [instructor] was a guy, so for two weeks it was me in a studio dancing to that song with a guy.”

NICK LACHEY & JESSICA SIMPSON:’Cherish the Day’ by Sade. Says Simpson: “It’s actually what I got engraved on his wedding band.”

MARY STEENBURGEN & TEDDANSON: ‘Fields of Gold’ by Sting. “When we got married, James Taylor and his sister Kate performed that song for us,” says Steenburgen.

MARG HELGENBERGER & ALAN ROSENBERG: ‘Higher Love’ by Steve Winwood. “We danced to that when we got married,” says Helgenberger.

CHRISTIAN SLATER & RYAN HADDON: ‘You’re Still the One’ by Shania Twain. “It captures how we feel about each other,” says Slater.

VANESSA WILLIAMS & RICK FOX: “Rick wrote a poem to me called ‘Today and Every Day,’ and I snuck it to one of my musical directors, who changed it into a song and sang it at our wedding,” says Williams.

JENNIFER CONNELLY & PAUL BETTANY: ‘The Scientist’ by Coldplay. Says Bettany: “It’s a beautiful song…but it has nothing to do with us, since it’s about a relationship ending!”

ANNE HECHE & COLEMAN LAFFOON: ‘A Case of You’ by Joni Mitchell. “I sang that chorus to Coley when we first started going out,” says Heche.

GABRIELLE UNION & CHRIS HOWARD: ‘Who Dat’ by JT Money. Says Union: “It was the first song he asked me to dance to when we met in 1999, and it’s been our song ever since.”

ROB LOWE & SHERYL BERKOFF: The theme from Out of Africa by John Barry. Says Lowe: “It’s a gorgeous, romantic, killer song.”
