One of MW's "assignments" for the upcoming wedding festivities was to work on the weekend soundtrack, which will be included in the out of town baskets/boxes. On my way in today I heard a great piece on NPR that could provide him inspiration (and I think he needs it since he's lagging behind). Wedding theme music is everyone, but finding the right, un-popular, slightly off the wall beats is difficult. So, here's the list that NOR came up with:

The right wedding mix not only captures the joy of the occasion, but also reflects the bride and groom's own musical likes and dislikes. Here's what NPR music producer Stephen Thompson came up with for his niece's 2005 wedding.

  1. Clem Snide, "Forever, Now and Then"
  2. Old 97's, "Question"
  3. Josh Rouse, "Nothing Gives Me Pleasure"
  4. Death Cab for Cutie, "Passenger Seat"
  5. Jimmy Scott, "When Did You Leave Heaven?"
  6. The Lemonheads, "Into Your Arms"
  7. Ron Sexsmith, "Moonlight Becomes You"
  8. Nick Drake, "From the Morning"
  9. Radney Foster & Abra Moore, "I'm In"
  10. Norah Jones, "Come Away with Me"
  11. Sade, "By Your Side"
  12. Matthew Sweet, "I've Been Waiting"
  13. Neil Young, "Harvest Moon"
  14. Chet Baker, "Embraceable You"
  15. Iron & Wine, "Ab's Song"
  16. Low, "The Plan"
  17. Johnny Cash & June Carter Cash, "As Long As the Grass Shall Grow"
  18. Clem Snide, "Find Love"
What do you think?
