Wedding Music is Boring



In general Wedding Music is Boring. so when one of the bawley writers wanted to celebrate their marriage they tried to go with something a little different.

No DJ, no overpriced pub rock covers band, just a pre-loaded ipod and a trusted friend on the play button.

Looks like a great list.

Good thing about weddings, nobody ever gives you bad feedback.

Well I can't speak for the other 86 party-goers but I certainly enjoyed myself. Belinda Carlisle's 'Summer Rain' was a particular highlight for me...'somewhere in my heart I'm always, dancing with you in the summer rain, la la la'.

Whoever suggested including this smash hit in the mix was a true genius.

Are you releasing a CD from the wedding? I'd like one please :) I'm still dismayed that you used the original The Prayer and not the k-rad remix? huh I just don't get it...

Well I had fun, as, sadly, the pictures demonstrate all too well....

And I didn't fall asleep! Result!

Well quite frankly any playlist with Alice Cooper's Poison, Belinda Carlisle's Summer Rain, Outkast's Hey Ya was going to be a sure fire hit but the whole thing just kept on being sooooooooo danceable. Note: Unable to walk on the Monday due to shin splints incurred moshing in stilettos. Some girls just know how to party!!!
