First dance wedding songs we all hate

A friend of mine started a trend.
I attended her wedding, before we were friends.
No, I didn't wedding crash.
I made her cake.
While I sat through her adorable ceremony I couldn't get over how unique the music selection was.
For the next week, I had all the songs stuck in my head.
They were all rock songs I already knew, but they were the most amazing instrumental versions I had never heard before!

 Then I forgot about it.

A few months later, Steve and I needed to come up with a first dance wedding song of our own.
He wanted every high school prom song out there.

Ie; Because you loved me- Celine Dion
 I don't want to miss a thing- Aerosmith
From this moment -Shinia Twain
Amazed- Lonestar
Back that thing up-Juvenile

Alright, just kidding about that last one.

Seriously though, every song made me want to puke.
They were all so cliche'.
Or reminded me of going to homecoming drunk ( sorry mom) and making out under the bleachers.
 ( I never did that, but it always happens in the movies)

We considered all the genres,country,classical,soft rock,classic rock.
We could not agree on anything and the songs we could agree on, were really difficult to dance to!

Then I had an idea.

 I remembered the wedding with the amazing music from my friend's wedding.
I found out who the band was and voila'!
There were TOO MANY to choose from.
We ended up settling on
You shook me all night long by AC/DC
but here's the catch, it was all instrumental by...


It ended up being the perfect song choice for us and we had great feed back after the wedding from our guests.
I would say the best part was all the wedding party singing out the words as we danced our first dance!
I will never forget that.
Since my wedding, I know of 2 more brides who are also using a song selection from Vitamin String Quartet.

So , if you are stumped for that perfect number to strut your stuff on the dance floor to and if hearing Etta James " At last" one more time it is going to make you shove a pencil in your eye, you should explore this option.
You won't be disappointed!

These may not be wedding worthy, but here are a few of my favorites:

Just Dance - Lady Gaga
Enter sandman- Metallica

Broadcast satellite "in the Star on the 9th," was successfully
launched in June last year, it can be said is a milestone in the field of live satellite event.
They also apparently believe that their customers who like a particular song they hear on
the radio, are likely to purchase that song, which could add to downloads from i - Tunes.
Another radio commercial production tip to chew on is to
make sure the audio quality is excellent on any spot your produce.
