You're in luck, I really don't want to clean the basement tonight. :) I wouldn't recommend downloading music, but if you do, preview each song fully. There are a lot of crappy or intentionally altered copies out there.


Unless you have a two steppin crowd I would use the country sparingly. Pick the tunes with a heavy pop/dance beat (like Any Man Of Mine)It's too hard to do the stand around in a circle and beebop dance that most of us do.

Shout - Otis Day and the Knights version from Animal House

Sweet Home Alabama - Skynyrd

Sam And Dave - Soul Man

You know, I am a diehard Skynyrd fan, but you can't dance to Skynyrd. And those that do are either on crack or tripping on acid. Skynyrd is not for dancing, it's for rocking out to. Playing the air guitar and singing along to the songs. That would be like dancing to a Pink Floyd song, it just doesn't happen.

Ain't too proud to beg

The Temptations

Ain´t too proud to beg

I know ya wanna leave me,

but I refuse to let you go

If I have to beg and plead for your sympathy,

I don´t mind coz you mean that much to me


Ain´t too proud to beg, you know it (sweet darlin)

Please don´t leave me girl, don´t you go

Ain´t to proud to plead, baby, baby

Please don´t leave me girl, don´t you go

Now I heard a cryin man, is half a man

With no sense of pride

But if I have to cry to keep ya, I don´t mind weepin if it'll keep you by my side


If I have to sleep on your doorstep all night and day,

just to keep you from walkin away

Let your friends laugh, even this I can stand, cause I want to keep you any way I can.


Now i got a love so deep in the pit of my heart, and each day it grows more and more.I'm not ashamed to come and plead to you baby, if pleadin keeps you from walkin out that door.

I´ve danced a lot with this one... Rolling Stones version, sure.

Our wedding song was "Pride and Joy" by SRV, but the runners up were "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing" by Aerosmith and "I'll Stand by You" by the Pretenders.

We had a live band and we asked for a variety of music, mostly classic rock. They played "Moondance" (at my insistence), "Brown Sugar", "Soul Man", some Beatles stuff, even some swing (it was '99 and swing all of a sudden was "hot" again)

we're not officially engaged yet but my boy nd i have already decided on our first song - let's stay together by al green, and my best friend sarah is hopefully gonna sing it. i'm not getting married or at least another five years but i'm having fun thinking about it and making plans.

one of the most exciting things we've already decided is that the invitations will state that if anyone would prefer, their gift to us could be a performance at the afters, be it a recitation, a song, a piece of music, anything. many of our friends are musicians or otherwise artistic people so i know already it will be amazing! sarah is going to be a 'musical bridesmaid', in charge or coordinating the whole thing. i wanna get married now!!!
