Astute Hearingade readers might have noticed that yesterday, I posted a sweet mix of songs to get married to. Astute readers might have also noticed that I mentioned that I made not one mix of wedding tunes, but two! This here, friends, is the second half of the marriage mix I’ve made for my friend Mylynda. All the songs (Well, pretty much all the songs) are super romantic but rather than weaving a lullaby of love like the first disc did, these romantic tunes are made to be danced to. The reception is open bar, after all, so people are going to want to move! But instead of spinning questionable jams by the likes of James Blunt and The Black Eyed Peas, this wedding’ll be spinning Wilco and Interpol. And there’s even a slow dance courtesy of She & Him for the lovers! It’s enough to make me look for a wedding date to take to Cincinnatti with me so we can cut a rug at what’s sure to be the hippest wedding in the ‘Natti this year.
Speaking of which … Gentlemen? Any takers? I promise I clean up real good!
