Getting married in six weeks....
Recommend me some songs for the evening..
Everyone loves them, from the grannies to the indie bedwetters.
and one of the highlights was dancing with my wife to The Velvelettes - Needle in a Haystack
anything much longer than 2 minutes and things start to get awkward!
if it is full of young cool cats like Uni / school friends, you can play all sorts of stuff. If it is mainly family and randomers, you may want to go to the cheesy wedding standard songs otherwise you may have an empty dancefloor. First dance can be whatever you want, but beware that whatever you choose will look cheesy as fuck. Best one I went to was mainly schoolfriends, a mate did the DJing just using a laptop, chose loads of songs we all grew up loving.
so i'm thinking more hits and motown - got some already but seeing if anyone has any ideas rather than too cheesy
Always the high point of a wedding bash
Patti Smith - Because The Night
Dead Or Alive - You Spin Me Round (Like A Record)
Bonnie Tyler - Total Eclipse of the Heart
The Sonics - Have Love, Will Travel
"Into My Arms"? NO - "Stagger Lee"! We're fucking brilliant. Our wedding photo also consists of the wife having a fag whilst I shout down the phone at my absent family.
And I'm having some of these others. Good choices.
I played my iPod through the sound system and had everyone jumping about to My Baby Is A Headfuck by The Wildhearts.
The Power Of Love by Frankie Goes To Hollywood.
