a very special “tunes”day

31 May

my dear friends are getting married this summer (can’t wait) and came up with a very fun way to pick their first dance song. since they don’t have a special song, but love music, they invited their musically-inclined friends and family to submit their song suggestions. i turned in a few cds, no song names, no artists listed, so they’d really listen. others submitted a single song pick. all contributions were culled and vetted, and randomly placed in a 64-song bracket.

we gathered for an afternoon of conversation and debate to reach the final four. from those top picks we’re all choosing the track which we think the bride and groom will ultimately play for their first dance as newlyweds.

well, when i did my original draft, i had four entirely different songs in the finals — i’d actually even picked out the one song of the entire bracket i’d have them dance to — so now i’m stuck. i need your help folks!

    It was a close second with ‘Crazy Love’ but I saw that a few times at weddings in the last few years…and come on, the yearning in Otis Reddings’ voice in ‘These Arms of Mine’ kind of kills ya…

    These Arms of Mine was my wedding song!
