Wedding Playlist 2
Here we are! My second installation of the fun, quirky wedding playlist. (See the first installation here.) These songs are of varying styles and don't all go together, but that's part of the fun. They are all romantic in one way or another, so be open minded and maybe you will be inspired to create your own wedding playlist. Go through your iTunes and pick out of all the songs you think are romantic or that just make you happy. Ask your friends to do the same, and before you know it, you will have an eccentric and unexpected playlist of songs that you love!
Click on the song titles for video/audio!
1. The Way I Am - Ingrid Michaelson
A sweet love letter of a song that shows how the little things really do matter.
2. Such Great Heights - Iron & Wine
An original from The Postal Service, Iron & Wine slows this tune down to the perfect speed for a wedding slow dance.
3. All At Sea - Jamie Cullum
A beautiful melody and a hint of Sinatra-era smoothness.
4. Curs In The Weeds - Horse Feathers
A simply beautiful song (who can resist violins!?) by this favorite local band.
5. La Vie En Rose - Edith Piaf
Perfect if you are having a vintage-style wedding, or if you have a fondness for the French language. It's romantic even if you don't understand the words.
6. I Can Tell That We Are Gonna Be Friends - The White Stripes
Precious lyrics to bring out your childlike side. And perfect for high school sweethearts!
7. Shelter From The Storm - Bob Dylan
Can you tell that I love Bob Dylan? Well, I do. If you know this song, you'll know why it's on the list. If not, take a listen!
8. Tiny Dancer - Elton John
A romantic story and a song that everyone knows and will sing along to!
9. All I Want Is You - Barry Louis Polisar (from the Juno soundtrack)
Who could forget this adorable ditty from the opening credits of Juno?
10. St. Patrick's Day - John Mayer
He's created quite the reputation for himself lately, I know. Regardless, some of his songs are hopelessly romantic.
11. She Moves In Her Own Way - The Kooks
A lively rock 'n' roll serenade from a few Brits.
12. If Not For You - Bob Dylan
I know, I know, enough with the Bob Dylan songs. This one's a keeper, I swear.
13. Come Fly With Me - Michael Buble
A nod to a more sophisticated time and my favorite from the Michael Buble catalog.
14. Time Flies - Lykke Li
A stripped-down ballad from the Swedish songstress.
15. My Funny Valentine - Frank Sinatra
That dreamy Sinatra voice and lyrics like "you make me smile with my heart." Too cute.
16. Wedding Bell - Beach House
An airy tune from the dream-pop duo's aptly titled album "Devotion."
17. Comfortable - John Mayer
One of his lesser-known songs, but probably the most heartfelt.
18. Say Yes - Elliott Smith
Simple and sincere. No frills or sugary coating on this one.
19. My Girls - Animal Collective
If you know anything about Animal Collective, you are probably wondering why this is on the list, but...if you listen to the lyrics, it's really an adorable song. He just wants a house for his girls! Plus, if you have an indie-leaning crowd, this will get people on the dance floor. But still, only for the adventurous...
20. The Fear You Won't Fall - Joshua Radin
A charming duet about jumping in feet first.
The jury's still out on whether my iTunes can hold up to another wedding playlist, so perhaps you'd like to make your own and share it with us? We would love that!
