You Asked For It: Music to My Ears

Hey Goldiluxe!

You have a lot of opinions!  I like.  How about you weigh in on this: What are your top 20 song choices for a first dance?  Your 20 least favorite?

Okay, Sugar, I'll open up that door.  But, before I do, let me say this:  These are MY personal favorites (and least favorites).  This question was a lot of fun to answer, but I don't want anyone to feel like I'm doing the Electric Slide all over their music choices.  You dance to what ever moves you.  I will too. Also, keep in mind some (not many, but some)of those listed on the Bottom 20 are songs I LOVE, but I just can't stand hearing them at yet another wedding.

Now on to the list!

  1. Oh, my gosh. I'm with you on most of this...My stinkers are the toootally misunderstood ones. "Lips of an Angel" especially...Like, do you have any idea what this song is talking about? No. For real... You think being in bed with someone you don't actually love while talking on the phone to the person you do is...romantic? I'm sorry, what?
    Ranting aside, Paul's and my first dance was to "At Last." We just asked the DJ to pick something, because we trusted him, and it was totally perfect :) Thanks for spurring me to remember and smile! Also, thanks for your rocking guest post today!
