Harry Connick, Jr.’s New Song Inspires

Songs about relationships are nothing new. Some of the most famous songs (and probably some of your favorites) are about falling in love. Others are about good times, sex, or even the excitement of budding relationships. Still others are about the other side – heartbreak, love lost, pining for someone who has left, and so on…

We almost never hear songs about marriage, though, or even about the joys and benefits of a long-term relationship. Breaking from the norm, singer and pianist Harry Connick Jr.’s latest single is all about the unique bond he shares with his wife Jill Goodacre.

The song is titled “(I Do) Like We Do” – and that’s the repeating theme throughout: “No one does ‘I do’ like we do.” He’s talking about the pride he has for his marriage, and how the connection he shares with his wife belongs only to the two of them!

He talks about going through ups and downs, uniquely shared memories, and even acknowledges his own imperfections – all of which make a marriage special! Here’s just one little section of the lyrics:

“Nobody got a you like me
Nobody got this history
Of the good times, and the hard time
And the wild times we’ve been through
Nobody got a me like you
And I ain’t much but this much is true
No one does ‘I do’ like we do”

Just that chunk says so much about marriage – you’re both unique individuals, and the story you build together is yours and yours alone! Your history, your quirks, the good times and the bad… All of those things add up to the relationship you share. You’ve chosen each other, and the pair you make up is unlike any other couple. No one does “I do” like you do either!

Let this song serve as a reminder to build the marriage you want to have. The only people responsible for the quality of your relationship are you and your spouse – and your marriage will ultimately be whatever you make it. The message in this music is one of pride and joy, and that’s precisely why it’s so important to work hard for a happy and healthy marriage.

How you and your spouse do “I do” is up to the two of you, and if you want to be proud of it, you have to create it for yourself!
