Reception Music

I thought this would be fun to do on here since we're all pretty offbeat. Obviously all of the songs probably won't be applied to your wedding, and some of you probably haven't thought of all of these songs yet, but share what you have so far! (I stole this from the June '11 board)
What are your:
Reception Entrance for wedding party?
Reception Entrance for Bride and Groom?
First Dance Song?
Father Daughter Dance?
Mother Son Dance?
Cake Cutting Song?
Anniversery Dance?
Tossing the bouquet?
Tossing the garter?
Putting the garter on bouquet catcher?
Last Song?
Other Special Songs?

    <div>We pretty much have to, Fi and I have a mutual love for My Chem, we just saw them a few weeks ago, the crowd made us feel old, but at one point (when they played "Vampires Will Never Hurt You") FI jumped on me and started screaming like a girl! We definitely had a great time, it was the first time we got to see them as a couple so it was pretty exciting.</div>
