The Lady In Red -- Chris de Burgh

Say hello to an old friend. I had to go obtain this one hit wonder from the 80s after I heard it again in 2011. A lot of people don't like it or think it's overwrought. I don't. I think it's incredibly sweet and positively sentimental, and always did (even before I got married myself).

I have to admit to one fault: the song is about de Burgh remembering what his wife was wearing the first time they met, unlike most people. Like me. I was and am usually clueless about people's clothing. (One time I had to call the police on someone harassing walkers, and was asked what he was wearing. "Um, clothes....").
