Wedding Music

Recommended Posts

Big news, I'm getting married this summer. :wub:

I'm trying to figure out a playlist for after dinner, for dancing.

I wanna include a lot of rock music, so please give me suggestions, what rock music would be suitable for the dance floor at a wedding?

I'm thinking it should be something the common man is familiar with, like Bon Jovi Living on a prayer for examble.

 

Tell me what ya think. :)

We've picked The Storm "To Have and to Hold" for our song.

I'm trying to put together a playlist that would be suitable for dancing, not neccesarily romantic songs, just rock songs to dance to. I don't wanna listen to pop music all night.

Unfortunately rock music isn't really appropriate if you want to dance. You should play some pop, maybe some mainstream, and dance music. I used to DJ weddings back in the day and rock music, no matter how popular just didn't go over well.

Ha, congrats mate. I think I did a similar thread a while ago when I got married and the results were this. Although I got no music in the actual ceremony (aside from a Bon Jovi song or two) on the wedding video I got a few songs like this:

 

'Forever' - KISS

'Shouldn't I be lying in your arms' - Fury

'When I look into your eyes' - Firehouse

'Right by your side' - 7th Heaven

 

I ended up with at least half a dozen, but I don't recall the others at this instant. Good luck mate!!

She told me that ROCK 'EM, SOCK 'EM by the MENTORS was out of the question. :whistle:

 

Awww, ya big romantic lug, ya... :wub:

 

I fought like hell to have KISS' "Forever" as the "first dance" song at my wedding, but of course Bridezilla - er, I mean my lovely wife -- wanted nothin' to do with that, and of course since I wanted to have a good wedding night (if you catch my drift) I eventually gave up arguing and let her have her way, thus we ended up using some godawful country ballad by some Garth Brooks wanna-be motherf**ker in a black hat.

 

My wife did throw a few concessions my way as far as music during the reception, however, so KISS' "Strutter," GnR's "Sweet Child O'Mine" and the Ramones' "I Wanna Be Sedated" were heard at different points during the evening.

I remember strickly, that I told the D.J., I did not want him to play BILLY IDOL -MONY MONY.

This Jerkoff goes and plays it. I wanted to rip his throat out with a butter knife.

I do remember walking to my apartment without a suit on. I was going on a cruise the next morning, so I left my tux over my friends house.

I've been in marital BLISS ( :doh:) ever since.

When my wife and I got married the "Macarena" was the hip thing at the time. We told the DJ that if we heard that song during our reception, we would take him outside and break his legs. Fortunately for him he listened. :axe:

 

That poor DJ also had to put up with my brother and my new brother in law, both of whom were half in the bag, pestering him all night with requests for either death metal (my bro) or pornographic hip-hop songs (my brother in law). That guy earned his paycheck at our wedding. :lol:

Don't listen to all the whiners above, Kristian. :P Marriage is great. Play whatever music you two love and don't worry about what anyone else thinks. It's your day, so rock out!

    • How did I not think of this one?! Brilliant album and the project just tanked afterwards...
    • I don't. Hate it with a passion. Even that is so 1986. Retire Tesla please. You are an embarrassment now.
    • Tracklist: 1. Super Fine Sugar  2:48 2. Drive It Like I Stole It (featuring Berton Averre of The Knack)  4:25 3. Cherry Cola (featuring Jon Auer of The Posies)  3:50 4. Ex Machina (featuring Jesper and Jacob Binzer of D-A-D)  3:40 5. Pay My Rent  4:25 6. Dirty Earth (featuring Tony Harnell)  4:16 7. Take Me To The River  2:47 8. This Means War  4:36 9.

Rattle The Cage  4:42 Band members: David Shaw - lead vocals, bass George Giannoulis - lead guitar, vocals Alex Rude - guitar, vocals Erik Fehrenbach - drums, vocals Produced by Streetlight Circus Recorded at Snake Mountain Studios - Monroe, New York Mixed and Mastered by Bob St. John for PDQ Productions Bio: Born in New York City, raised on rock ‘n’ roll, Streetlight Circus has become a fist-raising juggernaut.  With two independently-released full-length albums and one EP, consistent touring in the United States and overseas, invites to major American rock festivals, and bills shared with countless venerated artists, Streetlight Circus has become a name synonymous with the new wave of hard rock. The band's new album, Super Fine Sugar, represents a huge leap forward for the hard-hitting quartet. Streetlight Circus showcases the urgent songwriting and soaring vocals of David Shaw, the fiery and passionate guitar work of George Giannoulis, the thunderous drumming of Erik Fehrenbach, and the smooth rhythm guitar work of Alex Rude. What’s more, Streetlight Circus has captured the attention of industry stalwarts who have eagerly participated in the creation of the new album. The songs were mixed and mastered by Grammy-winning producer and engineer Bob St. John. Guest appearances are made by Berton Averre (The Knack), Tony Harnell (TNT), Jon Auer and Ken Stringfellow (The Posies), Brian Forsythe (Kix), and Jesper and Jacob Binzer (D-A-D). Streetlight Circus has been invited to rock thousands at festivals such as Rock Fest (Wisconsin), Rocklahoma (Oklahoma), Rock N’ Derby (New York), Wolf Fest (Colorado), and the M3 Rock Festival (Maryland) among many others. The band has managed to comfortably fit on bills featuring bands as heavy as Avatar, Anthrax, and Megadeth and as accessible as The Doobie Brothers, Buckcherry, and Night Ranger. In 2018, Streetlight Circus embarked on a successful headlining tour of the United Kingdom taking them from Wales to Scotland and many British points in between. Supercharged and ready to roll with Super Fine Sugar, Streetlight Circus is prepared to rock stages around the globe. Don’t miss your chance to rock under the band’s big top. It’s a show you won’t want to miss. Watch the video for "Dirty Earth" featuring Tony Harnell at the link below  https://youtu.be/08_IuFTqwTM  
    • warrant?? CP and DED destroy the debut imo. 🤷
    • Eric Clapton-Chronicles Best Of John Fogerty-Centerfield Genesis-...And Then There Were Three... Jimi Hendrix-Electric Ladyland Billy Joel-The Stranger L.A. Guns-S/T Bruno Mars-Unorthodox Jukebox Motley Crue-The Dirt Soundtrack Simple Minds-Glittering Prize Patty Smyth-S/T U2-The Joshua Tree    
    • Such was commonplace around here years ago. 
    • That's an oxymoron-even KarpetRyd knows that !  
    • Checked this out....not too bad but not sure how memorable it'll be. There's a few tunes I thought sounded pretty good after my first listen and do think Ronnie sounds excellent on the album  Songs like Scream and Shot in the Dark both stood out to me a bit.  I thought Last Man Alive sounded decent too. Much of the rest kind of feels like it falls in line with the first 2 singles that were released.  It's kind of heavy which is cool but just not coming off as being that catchy or memorable initially which was sort of my same problem with the last album.   We'll see what happens with more listens.  Here's a link to the whole album:
