Song List

We believe that relationships have a soundtrack, and that ours in particular could probably be performed on Broadway and be turned into a movie musical that could be more popular in Europe than The Dark Knight. Pei has a classic and alternative rock CD collection that rivals anybody’s, and Fran’s totally accidental musical theater/acapella/eclectic 80’s techno/Chinese pop background fills in the blanks in the world music category.

As it isn’t possible to produce a CD with all of these selections for our friends and family, we’ve done the next best thing – we’ve linked to YouTube videos of our wedding soundtrack.

This is the same list that was provided to our DJs and music coordinator. It was impossible to play all of the music on this list at our wedding, as it is over 4 hours of music, but it is what it might have sounded like if we were producing a soundtrack. We’ve tried to pick links to the “official” authorized video uploaded by the recording company to YouTube, or rare and unique recordings that give a different twist to the music. Some of the videos do not allow embedding, so you will have to click through to the YouTube website to view them.

If you had requested a song at the banquet and it’s not here, please let us know what it was, and we’ll add it to the playlist.
