I have not yet RSVPed to my brother’s wedding. There’s no question about my going. I’m only hesitating because there’s a space on the RSVP for a song request and I want something good. The only parameters are that it has to be “clean” (or at least no obviously obscenities since the bride’s family is very religious) and that I want it to be recenti-ish and catchy enough that people might dance (but most everyone will be from eastern Kentucky so who knows). What are your thoughts on these:
Akron/Family - "Ed Is a Portal"
Fiona Apple - "Hot Knife"
Autre ne Veut - "Counting"
CHVRCHES - "The Mother We Share"
Dirty Projectors - "Stillness Is the Move"
Grimes - "Oblivion"
Justice - "D.A.N.C.E."
LCD Soundsystem - "Dance Yrself Clean"
MGMT - "Time to Pretend"
Prince - “Let’s Go Crazy” (no album versions on Youtube)
The Very Best - "Warm Heart of Africa"
This eventually just became a what-songs-are-you-familiar-with search. As a result I’m VERY OPEN to suggestions. Especially ones that might be subversive while adhering to what I wrote above. Mike? Max? Timmara? Random other people? I could always just put Sinatra I guess…
