Going for a Song

Less than TWO MONTHS TO GO! We have finished sorting everything out now though, apart from the transport and the drink and the flowers and the tie and the honeymoon and the invites and the vows and the shoes and the legal documentation.

Oh, and the music! We're asking our guests to come up with suggestions. Here are some helpful ideas I received from Dan K.

"Regarding the wedding playlist, perhaps you might like to consider the following.

1. Before the ceremony, when guests are assembling in the conservatory...

The Geto Boys - Mind of a Lunatic, Trigger Happy N***a, Let a Ho be a Ho
The Smiths - Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now
Kanye West - Gold Digger
Pet Shop Boys - What Have I Done To Derserve This?
Beautiful South - Don't Marry Her, **** Me

2. During Ellie's stroll down the aisle...

Iron Maiden - Bring Your Daughter To The Slaughter
The Ramones - The KKK Took My Baby Away
Morrissey - You're The One For Me, Fatty

3. While the books are being signed, and we all stand around waiting for the champagne...

Agoraphobic Nosebleed - Blind Hatred Finds a Tit
Everclear - So Much For The Afterglow
Futureshock - Why, Why, Why?

4. Your first dance...

Joy Division - Love Will Tear Us Apart
Khia - My Back, My Neck, Lick It
50 Cent - P.I.M.P
Timbaland feat. Nelly Furtado - Maneater
Sir Mix-A-Lot - Baby Got Back
DJ PK - Smack Her Wit A Dick

5. As the happy couple head off into the night...

The Doors - The End"

Thanks, Dan! And thanks also to Dan W, who introduced me to the Greatest Song Ever Recorded. I think we've found our wedding band!
