What you got back home, little sister, to play your fuzzy warbles on? I bet you got little save pitiful, portable picnic players. Come with uncle and hear all proper! Hear angel trumpets and devil trombones. You are invited.
You can't go wrong w/Ray LaMontagne, but MMJ's "Golden" is definitely my pick. These lyrics melt me every time I hear 'em - they're almost like PERFECT wedding vows set to music!:
"Feelin' you are here again, hot on my skin again Feeling good a thing I'd never known before What does it mean to feel? Millions of dreams come real A feeling in my soul I'd never felt before And you always told me No matter how long it holds me If it falls apart or makes us millionaires You'll be right here forever We'll go thru this thing together And on heaven's golden shore we'll lay our heads."

so, this might be really cheesy, but can we have a shower for you guys at brunch next year? You obviously can't go back to Belgium with a load of toasters and the like (haha) but I think we could have some fun with it and you might get a few good things!
Personally, if my fiancée wanted me to dance to an Eagles song, I'd probably have to call the wedding off.
I didn't vote, but I'd like to put in a good word for the Beach Boys' "God Only Knows." Maybe that's just me. All I know about any music for my hypothetical wedding is the inclusion of that song, and that I'm walking down the aisle to the Pixies' "Here Comes Your Man."
