Re: wedding songs

I'm not sure what to suggest but here are a couple to avoid...

Brilliant Disguise - Springsteen
The One I Love - REM

Now I work down at the car wash where all it ever does is rain.

'99 Gibson Les Paul Special DC, '99 Epiphone Dot, '06 Norman B50, '03 Yamaha FG-433S, Fender Performer 650

Re: wedding songs

One I always mention when this question arises is another Springsteen tune called, "If I should Fall Behind"  When my daughter heard me play this she made me play it at her wedding..

You can see all my video covers on [url][/url]
I have finally found happiness in my life.  Guitars, singing, beer and camping.  And they all intertwine wonderfully.

Re: wedding songs

I think the songs should reflect the people getting married and that you should let them give you a set list or at least some ideas of what musical tastes they have....

Here's a few I played at a wedding a couple of months ago..... They were friends of mine and both are surfers so it was easy for me wink

Waiting on an angel -Ben Harper
Better Together - Jack Johnson
Angel - Jack Johnson
Which way your heart will go - Mason Jennings
Be here now - Mason Jennings
Heart of Life- John Mayer
I will be the one who loves you the most - Brett Dennen
I will keep the bad things from you - The Damnwells
I'm Yours - Jason Mraz
Dealer Wins - The Beautiful girls
Romeo & Juliet - Dire Straits

That's all I can remember at the moment..... I'll see if I can find my set list and share some more later......

Forever and ever amen.  Of course, it helps if they both have beards and are wearing overalls.

Granted B chord amnesty by King of the Mutants (Long live the king).
If it comes from the heart and you add a few beers... it'll be awesome! - Mekidsmom
When in doubt ... hats. - B.G. Dude

Re: wedding songs

Baby I'm Amazed by Lonestar....I have been playing that lately. I play it in the key of A. There is also a dreaded BM in the song that needs to be played for it to sound right...good luck smile.
