Re: Music to my ears....

  • i definitely want that Grease medley with alittle bit of each song in it...i also want "party in the usa" by miley cyrus...maybe toward the end. i'm a closet miley fan haha. other than that i'm not really sure.

    as far as not wanting anything, i agree on the chicken dance! and YMCA.

    Your Still The One is the song we are going to play for the anniversary dance (we are doing that instead of a garter & bouquet toss). Other than the traditional dances (first, F/D, M/S, last song) I want a variety... a few things for grandparents in the early part, and then throw some R&B, hip hop, dance music in for the rest of the night.... On my "oh heck no" list is I like big butts (cuz that isnt funny!), anything vulgar, and the ever dreaded Chicken Dance (I dont care what my "comedian" fiance says!)
