Dare to be different and have some fun with your wedding music! While packing in all of the romance and beauty to your big day, it is often easy to forget about the little things that make people sit up in their seat and sing along.
Nostalgia can be that powerful force that can make those fun & memorable moments happen at your reception too. Especially in a room filled with so many people that you grew up with, why not include a few of the songs that filled your living rooms and hearts along the way. We were reminded of this at a recent wedding we performed at where there bride and groom Tiff and Rob chose the song Forever for their first dance. For anyone that doesn't immediately recognize the reference for this song, while originally recorded by The Beach Boys in 1970, it was immortalized by John Stamos' character Uncle Jesse on 90s TV "comedy" Full House (the word comedy is in quotation here for obvious reasons). Being one of those kids that watched every minute of TGIF when it was broadcast every Friday night on ABC, the memories came flooding back as our band performed this song to a room full of Millenials like us, quietly nodding approval at one another amidst a backdrop of un-suspecting adults. Being in on a pop-culture reference like this one is pretty cool. From The Monkees to Fresh Prince of Bel-Air to Game of Thrones, there is so much music on television which is embedded in our sub-consciousness, begging to be let out! We thought we use this week to get you sifting through some old music lists of your own and take your own trip down memory lane. We focused on the past 5 decades and added some childhood cartoon favourites at the end for good measure. WARNING: I take no responsibility from the hours of Youtube watching this list may lead to. It took every ounce of self-discipline I had to stay on track and finish this for you.
