Wedding Song List Part Deux

Before you all start showering me with congratulations, confetti and ball-and-chains, I would like to make it quite clear I am not getting married. I would, instead, like to enjoy my life. Anyway, you might remember a little while ago on Valentine’s Day I made a list of alternative songs that should be played to ward off the evil spirits of slush. Since then I’ve thought of a few more.

So, on this very lovely spring morning (or rather, very British spring morning) here is something that will make things less soppy should you find yourself as the DJ at a very digestion-troubling wedding:

1) Ogre Battle – Queen
2) Feed My Frankenstein – Alice Cooper
3) Dude Looks Like a Lady – Aerosmith
4) Everybody Hurts – REM
5) Boys of Summer – Don Henley
6) Halo of Flies – Alice Cooper
7) Shaddap Your Face – Joe Dolce
8) Evil Woman – Electric Light Orchestra
9) Lyin’ Eyes – The Eagles
10) Anything by Tenacious D
11) Piggies – The Beatles
12) Firestarter – Prodigy
13) Who Ate all the Pies?
14) Bring Your Daughter to the Slaughter – Iron Maiden
15) Walk Away – Cast
16) Crash – The Primitives
17) The Drugs Don’t Work – The Verve
18) Dreamers’ Ball – Queen
19) Who Let the Dogs Out? – Baha Men
20) How Soon is Now – The Smiths
21) Tired of Waiting for You – The Kinks
22) You’ve Lost that Loving Feeling – The Righteous Brothers
23) My Melancholy Blues – Queen

Of course, if anyone can think of any others then please feel free to add them. Check this for others: https://jamesbicheno.wordpress.com/2012/02/14/the-alternative-valentines-songlist/

  1. Some Top class tracks there mate. You ever thought of being an alternative wedding DJ? I’m off to a wedding on Friday, so I will report back on how many songs on your list are played on the day. Baha Men is a bit harsh mate 🙂 funny, but a bit harsh.
