For the Love – Party Tunes!


Next step in planning this beast is figuring out the music. As I perused the web and my fellow wedding sites I found a HUGE hole.

Music lists for weddings.

We have a ton of different backgrounds and age groups coming together and the Russians think they know how to party best as do, I am sure, the Giglio Clan. Then we have my ladies traveling in from the west coast and sissy from London who really know how to get down… suffice to say we have a serious gauntlet thrown down.

The surest way to ruin a party is to play crappy music. So I set about constructing a list of music that will not blow the ears off of my older guests and conversely will not put my younger guests to sleep. Also there is a necessity for a few line dances because I like to line dance. I am not ashamed to say that the tush push is the best time I have had in years…

Also, MmmBop made my list as did Magic, while YMCA and Brown Eyed Girl will NOT be making an appearance. Alex and I had to let Leningrad and Rob Zombie go but we’ve made peace with that.

Mind you this is not THE list but a list I am working on, just wanted to share as I could not find anything out there that was timely and hip and though all of the lovelies planning their shindigs might appreciate a list made in a time where n’sync is not an acceptable selection.
