Wedding Music vol 06 : Reception

With this installment of my reception background music we shall begin moving farther into the territory of “You really played that at your wedding?”  Granted, some of these songs aren’t typical wedding fodder, but they are all amazing songs.  They also all fit the mood of singer songwriter music that is both interesting and captivating while also being of a similar aural aesthetic.

Enjoy the music.  I know I did.  One of the greatest comments I received throughout my wedding and reception was a frequently repeated phrase, “This music is really good.”  It gave an already amazing day an even more special shine.

mp3 : Josh Ritter – The Temptation of Adam
mp3 : Simon and Garfunkel – Bleeker Street
mp3 : Sufjan Stevens – Chicago (Acoustic, Live at KCRW)
mp3 : The Weakerthans – Left and Leaving

  1. Excellent.

    I think more and more people these days are realising that they don’t have to settle for all the usual wedding type music. I know (should I finally make the big decision) that I intend to have a carefully planned playlist for the whole experience.

    As a taster, Pink Floyd’s “Echoes Pt 1” will be on before the bride makes her entrance, and there will probably be Daniel Johnston’s “True Love Will Find You in the End” (or a more suitably upbeat cover version of it) either during the signing of the papers, or during the exit from the wedding venue.

    The reception will be lots of Sam Cooke, James Brown and probably some early dance-able Beatles. Plenty of time for planning.
