Music to get married by

Me and Holly are getting married. It’s wonderful init. After the lovely ceremony, once we’ve all stuffed ourselves with food-a-plenty and had a laugh at all the speeches, we’re going to have a party in the evening, as one might expect.

We’d like everyone to contribute some song ideas to add to the evening playlist, so please leave a comment here so I can consider it and then add it to the list!

We’re thinking we might split the music up into sort of sections, like 8pm onwards is “something for everyone”, 10pm onwards is “something for everyone still going” and then later in the evening “something for those that want to play air guitar with their ties tied around their heads”… well, that’s how I see it anyway.

There will be no “The Proclaimers”, no “Paul Simon”, and no “Simon and Garfunkel.”

Here’s the list as it stands at the moment. This isn’t the precise order of play, just a sort of grouping (19th May 2012):
