Snap out of it!

Exactly. Thanks Cher, aka Rachel. In that vein, sometimes, when I'm walking to work I like to have a really kick ass song to get me pumped up for my day. Like "Beverly Hills" by Weezer, "Lost" or "Viva la Vida" by Coldplay, "Celebration" by Kanye (I heart me some Kanye), "Do You Realize" by the Flaming Lips. Then I had the great fantasy of walking down the aisle to a kick ass song. And strutting down the aisle. And the scandel it would cause. and I laughed. heartily.

So, I've also been thinking about what songs I would want to hear during the party/reception that would automatically make my guests want to dance with the raging loon of a bride who is already sweating uncontrollably on the dance floor. I've come up with the following:

Escapade - Janet Jackson
Rock With You - Michael Jackson
Cecilia - Simon and Garfunkel
The Way You Make Me Feel - Michael Jackson
Friday I'm In Love - The Cure
Heaven Is A Place on Earth - Belinda Carlisle
Young American - David Bowie
Just Fine - Mary J. Blige
Sweet Escape - Gwen Stefani
Touch the Sky - Kanye West
Girlshapedlovedrug - Gomez

any other suggestions?

It's hard to go wrong with MoTown. Everyone is born knowing the lyrics, the tempo is upbeat, some songs have dance moves built right in (I'm thinking "Shout" and songs like it), no one will be offended, your grandmother even likes it. Everyone's grandmother likes it. MoTown is a winner.

Agree on the MoTown thing...and that has nothing to do with a bias toward my homeland. A little Stevie Wonder with some "Uptight" - the classics like "Aint No Mountain High Enough" and "Build Me Up Buttercup". Also -saw you have some Michael already on your list, but I have to say PYT needs to be there. oooh, I would like to see ABBA there too, but that need may fade as I just saw MamaMia and think I might still be under the influence.
