22 Day Song Challenge – Day 17: A Song That You Want To Play At Your Wedding

If you need to catch up on what it is we’re doing here check out the post from Day 1 and meet our panel of rad here. Or click on their names below to see their band page or stalk them on social media. They like that.

Feel free to answer each prompt for yourself in the comments below. We love to hear about as many genres and bands as we can all around town. The only rule is you must use San Diego musicians/bands. To make it extra challenging try not to repeat a band as the days go by. If you want a look at the full list drop me a line. And you can view previous days and compare your answers here.

P.S. Lots of our picks are up for the 2013 San Diego Music Awards so don’t forget to vote for your favorites!

Here we go:

Day 17 – A Song That You Want To Play At Your Wedding

(or Anniversary Party for Married Panelists)

Jen VT: “Revival” by The Howls – I like the church-y organs on this one and the progression to a big thunderous chorus….  this song just feels festive. If I were to make the epic matrimonial mistake again I’d want a riotous playlist featuring this one.

Natalie Watson Webber“One More” by Nena Anderson* – This electrifying song that speaks of longing, passion and love (albeit in context maybe lost/losing) seems like a perfect “last dance” with your new Mr. or Mrs. Just before you’re ready to make your escape for the honeymoon.

“Give me one more night
Give me one more kiss
Give me one last time to remember this
Give me one more turn around
Tomorrow I’ll be leaving this town
Give me one last chance to hear that sound
Give me one more turn around
Give me one more night
Give me one more kiss
Give me one last time to remember this…”

Nena’s next show is at Queen Bee’s Art & Cultural Center on Friday, September, 20, 2013- more info and tickets! Like Nena on Facebook and listen to her on Reverbnation.

Rick Ostop:  “You Can’t Be Beat (Go to Sleep)” by Red Lotus Revue* – Upbeat, swing blues. Foolproof for hauling asses out on the dance floor.

Andrea Moore: “Footnotes” by The Silent Comedy* – I don’t really think about getting married or having a wedding, but I did when I first heard this song.

Paul Moffat: “Tear You Apart” -by Dirty Sirens* –  I’M NEVER GETTING MARRIED…AGAIN! My wife of 14 years and I are NOT lovey-dovey and cute and don’t gaze into each other’s eyes and listen to love songs. On our anniversary, we like to rock.  This song is surprisingly ‘real’ – “You took my heart, but you can’t have my soul”.  That line pretty much echoes the understanding my wife and I have towards each other and our relationship.  It also jams my brains out of my head.

Ryan Miller:  “Coast to Coast” by Euphoria Brass Band*

Eric Blocker“Wake up Edamame” by The Burning of Rome* – My wife and I were married on May 1, 1999. It was a big wedding. The ceremony was at the Organ Pavillion, and the reception was held at the Prado courtyard, and moved to the adjacent reception hall, Balboa Park. At the end of our vows, we ask that the judge say, “May the force be with you. You may kiss the bride.” Upon our entrance into the reception hall, we had the DJ play the theme to Star Wars. It was awesome! If I had a second choice we would have picked this song, only it wasn’t made yet. You get the point.

About Jen Van Tieghem

There aren’t many things I love more than music. While life spins away at a rapid beat I’ve realized it’s important to spend it doing what I love – enjoying music in San Diego. I have a handful of favorite venues, a heart full of favorite bands, and decided to write about it.
