wedding playlist

The bf and I are getting hitched in 2 weeks. Instead of taking the sane-but-awful option of hiring a wedding dj, we're going to mix a couple of cds. We are woefully out of practice.

We started off by writing down some of the bands we like and then if a particular song came to mind we made a note of it. Can anyone help us turn this into an actual playlist??? We only have 2 weeks to go... *wibble*

led zep
loud day tripper
t-rex 20th century boy
bowie hang on to yourself
iggy pop lust for life
blondie atomic
cure lovecats
duran duran rio
depeche mode
the human league don't you want me / being boiled
dead or alive you spin me right round baby right round like a record baby right round round round
visage fade to grey
adam ant
heaven 17
japan quiet life
teardrop explodes reward
new order
nik kershaw
les rythmes digitales
metallica ????
chameleons swamp thing
frankie two tribes
chillis give it away
linkin park
marilyn manson
electric 6 danger high voltage
republica ready to go
s-club don't stop moving

alternatively you could get the les rhythmes digitales remix of electric 6.

The happy couple must slowdance to "This Guy's In Love With You" by Herb Alpert and Tijuana Brass.

I always wanted to have "Computer Love" played at my wedding. You know, if you have a pitch control on your turntable, that song sounds absolutely beautiful pitched all the way down. A tearjerker, almost.

I DJd a friend's wedding a few weeks ago and these went down particularly well across all age ranges!
Shannon - Let The Music Play
Destiny's Child - Independent Women
Althea & Donna _ Uptown Top Ranking
Womack & Womack - Teardrops
TLC - Waterfalls
Neneh Cherry - Buffalo Stance
De La Soul - Eye Know
Lauryn Hill - I Love You Baby
Julie London - Fly Me To The Moon
Frank Sinatra - I Get A Kick Out Of You
Sugarhill Gang - Rappers Delight
Kylie Minogue - Can't Get You Out Of My Head
... and although it wasn't out then I'd have to add "Scandalous" by Mis-Teeq, just cos it's my fave new bit of sugary gal pop...

Dave I believe you, but the overlap between my list and your list = so miniscule it's no tool at all! ;) Though I did think about singing 'I get a kick out of you' instead of giving a speech.

Zora (Zora), Sunday, 16 March 2003 22:49 (fourteen years ago) Permalink

it's a classic - you should do! people will remember it for years to come!

interestingly enough a friend of told me the other day that he was doing a wedding and was asked to put a CD on while people milled around before the speeches etc... for some unknown reason he put on the Langley School Choir album... went down spectacularly badly, unsurprisingly, so try to avoid that!

Dave Stelfox, Sunday, 16 March 2003 22:58 (fourteen years ago) Permalink

Man, that was very rude of me. I appreciate all suggestions, honest. I guess what I really want is a way to make what we've already got *work*, and if a a few tunes we haven't thought of will make it go smoother than that's great. Don't want to start again w/ a whole new set tho. Trouble for you lot (having re-read the list) is that our taste in music, though passionate and to us, consistent, probably looks kinda bizarre & arbitrary to others. I mean, I can happily get from Marilyn Manson to Steps in 4 easy, er.. steps; how would you guess that Buffalo Stance makes me want to scream and break windows?!

Thanks for the tip about the choir... LOL...

haha thanks dude

i've got a lot of stuff figured out already but am trying to flesh out the R&B/jazz selections without going all the way obvious. the songs I started w/ that i'm kind of working off of vibe-wise are like Prince's "Adore" and the Aaliyah version of "At Your Best." also doing a lot of goofy 70s classic rock.

Alex in Baltimore, Sunday, 27 April 2008 05:18 (nine years ago) Permalink

also currently trying to decide between "Int'l Players Anthem" or going straight to "I Choose You."

And the bf just said NO LOVECATS

He was/is obviously insane.

I can't stop laughing at the post in this thread where Jess suggests "Lithium" and "Crawling" and I have no idea if he was serious or kidding, and it doesn't matter.

DIY wedding music

mookieproof, Sunday, 27 April 2008 08:06 (nine years ago) Permalink

four years pass...

• Is it OK to play "OPP"? Song makes ppl go bananas, but doesn't exactly have a pro-wedding message.
• Should I be worried about playing Mystikal?
• Can I play Average White Band's kind of dirty "Cut the Cake" for when we cut the cake?

Skip OPP and put on Don't Believe the Hype & Crazy in Love imo
