Need 10-20 more songs

FI and I are having an iPod instead of a DJ or band. Our reception lasts from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. The thing is, I only have about 5 hours' worth of music ready to go. We'll have guests who enjoy a wide variety of music (though all songs need to be "clean," due to part of the family being Mormon), but now I've just run out of ideas. I've googled and googled and I'm tired of googling! Can you help? What are you playing at your reception?
I need both slow and fast songs.
Thank you!

    Have you selected music to play while people are eating?  That could potentially beef up your list if you choose some standards for your "dinner set" that people wouldn't necessarily want to dance to.  Such as:

    "More" - Harry Connick Jr.
    "L-O-V-E" - Nat King Cole
    "As Time Goes By" - Jimmy Durante
    "S'Wonderful" - Diana Krall
    "Unforgettable" - Nat King Cole / Natalie Cole
    "You Are The Sunshine Of My Life" - Stevie Wonder

    etc.  I could give you at least an hour's worth of tunes like these, all clean and accessible to a wide audience.  If you are interested let me know and I'll post more.

    I do have a dinner playlist with stuff like a piano cover of "Can You Feel the Love Tonight" (a little joke between FI and me lol) and "Something" by The Beatles.

    These are our songs we knew we had to have- our first dance is either going to be the first or second song on the list because of when we first started dating my FI would sing them to me. :) And the Guns n' Roses song is the song my mom gave me when I was born so it had to be on there. 

    The Cure - Lovesong

    Voltaire - Anniversary

    Temper Trap - Sweet Disposition

    Animal Kingdom - Strange Attractor

    Dire Straits - Romeo and Juliet 

    Bright Eyes - First Day of My Life

    Elton John - Your Song

    Guns 'n Roses - Sweet Child 'O Mine (mother daughter)

    Oasis - Wonderwall

    Band of Horses - No One's Gonna Love You (More Than I Do)

    Iron & Wine - Flightless Bird, & God Made the Automobile
