Songs

10:00 p.m.

Justin and I have spent agonizing hours going through music. Here is the first unedited list of music we want at the wedding. Of course there won't be time for approximately half of this, so there will be heavy-handed cuts. And it will be sad.

You guys probably don't care.

It will be tragic! I love soooo much stuff on that list.

I am totally impressed you guys got started on this list before Friday, June 15.

If I ever marry Andy, I would love to have the song "Praise You" by Fat Boy Slim played. Hell, I'd like that to be our "first dance" or whatever, but Andy would just die trying to dance to it.

Not that you'd believe me, given my last couple of rants about the man!

Holy crap, that is quite the list! I think for our wedding, I managed to give the dj, like, twenty must-play songs and after that I left it to him. Now I feel like a souless (sp?) loser!
