suggestions please

I am making a cd of love (glad I just re-read my post, initially I wrote long here! it seems I have some issues with this particular L word) songs for a shower I'm throwing Saturday. In no particular order, this is what I have so far. Any strong feelings one way or the other about any of these? Anything you think I should add? Comments welcome, encouraged and yes, I'm begging, I need opinions here.
  • Easy Silence Dixie Chicks (this is the couple's song according to the groom so it has to stay and I had to buy it and I doubt I will ever listen to it again)
  • I Believe Stevie Wonder
  • Forever Ben Harper
  • I Will Follow You Into the Dark Death Cab for Cutie
  • By Your Side Sade
  • Pride (In the Name of Love) U2
  • Somebody Depeche Mode
  • Faithfully Journey (because what could be more romantic?)
  • When I Fall In Love Celine Dion (only because of a comment from the groom)
  • Think I'm in Love Beck
  • Friday I'm in Love The Cure
  • This Love Maroon 5
  • Love, Reign O'er Me Pearl Jam
  • Be Here to Love Me Norah Jones
  • You Sexy Thing Hot Chocolate
  • Let's Get It On Marvin Gaye

Sooooooooo, what do you think? I'm going to play with it for the next couple of days but definitely need your additions/deletions/order comments? Come on cheezy romantics, I need your input, it has been a long time for me . . .

I know some oldies that the couple probably won't know, and some they will be familiar with.
Unchained Melody
You Are the Sunshine of My Life
Love Song by Loggins & Messina
When We Dance - Sting
First Time I Ever Saw Your Face - Roberta Flack
You Make Me So Very Happy

I love the list, but I agree with your mom--you gotta have some Loggins & Messina. Unless the bride and groom are filthy rich.

i'm not sure about the U2 song. seems more mmmmm- political than romantic.

ethan and i have an unofficial song, the luckiest by ben folds.

em, you are right about U2. I mainly had it on there because it was on a list someone made for a prior shower (so my list isn't entirely original). I can't think of the ben folds song right now but I will check it out tonight.
and mom, those are all great! The Roberta Flack one makes me think of you. That is one you used to sing a lot.
Thanks everyone!!! More suggestions are still welcome.

Lets see...

Happy by Morac. Its upbeat and happy. It's not moody, might be good for a lighter moment in a shower.

And yes, my wedding song was Crazy in Love by Beyonce. I couldn't help myself.

I'm looking at my Itunes and it turns out that I'm not that big on love songs. I hardly have any that would work, and I have A LOT. I wonder what that says about me.

i agree with emily about pride, maybe all i want is you instead for a U2 song?
the luckiest is a good one.
love, g.love
hold you in my arms, ray lamontagne
better together, jack johnson
turn me on, norah jones
please me like you want to, ben harper.
anyway, just a few suggestions. if you need more, let me know. what about the songs from the region dance valentine cd?

Soul-Fusion said...

ah michele, I knew you would come through for me! I had no idea you were such a romantic!

when i'm 64 the beatles
top of the world the carpenters
bubbly colbie caillat
