Last week, I shared the mixtape of wedding songs I used for my wedding. There were a whole lot more though, and since this week is blogger’s choice, I’m going to continue the wedding playlist.
After our slow first dance songs, we had to get the guests moving. I had no intentions of ever having another wedding, and I wanted to enjoy it. After all, who goes to a wedding expecting everything to be done in an hour? Apparently my guests did because they had eaten while we were doing pictures (and weren’t supposed to. All the diabetic friendly food I had prepared for myself was GONE. ) and wanted cake! I needed something good, something funky, something that would get them moving. P!nk delivered!
Making my connection as I enter the room
Everybody’s chilling as I set up the groove
Pumpin’ up the volume with this brand new beat
Everybody’s dancing and they’re dancing for me
Def Leppard kept them going!
You got the peaches, I got the cream
Sweet to taste, saccharine
’cause I’m hot, say what, sticky sweet
From my head, my head, to my feet
When it came time for the festivities to continue, my sense of humor required that the bouquet toss not be to any traditional song. No, for this, I needed Pat Benatar.
Put up your dukes,
Lets get down to it
Hit me with your best shot
The husband knew the perfect song to accompany the obligatory bridal garter removal. Yep, the boys had a blast.
Them panty hose ain’t gonna last too long
If the DJ puts Bon Jovi on
When it came time for us to leave, we marched to our own tune. We literally hit the road and headed for Atlantic City.
Hit the road Jack and don’t you come back no more
The evening closed out for our guests with me leaving My Wish for them.
This is my wish
I hope you know somebody loves you
May all your dreams stay big
And for a bonus track, this song was on our CD favor. There’s quite a story behind it, not just because I love the sultry
whiskey voice of KT Tunstall, but because it fit. After our first official date, I never wanted to go out with him again. He’d spent the entire movie with his arm around my shoulders and the other planted firmly on my thigh. Personal space did not exist. I faked a headache at dinner, made him get his food in a box, and had him take me home…
And my heart hit a problem, in the early hours,
So I stopped it dead for a beat or two.
Isn’t he lucky I got over it?
And that, folks, is another Twisted Mixtape Tuesday, hosted by My Skewed View. Join in the fun and share your own mixtapes!
