    {Now where did I put that packet of biscuits….}

    On a more helpful note what’s the general theme of the music for the wedding. e.g I had a Ceilidh so that dictated the choice to some extent….

    Ours was Africa by Toto, which was meaningful for us.

    Got anything like that?

    If none of those appeal, just do the birdie song.

    What sort of style? for a confident woman and an audience that likes a laugh:

    One of my friends chose the them from Minder “I Could Be So Good for You” which I thought was a great idea. His **** of FiL thought otherwise and got the DJ to play something he preferred.

    Have I told you Lately That I love You by Van Morrison

    Good choice

    You could even see if he could pop along to sing it live for you. He’s been pretty quiet of late so would probably appreciate the work..

    The man appears to release about a thousand albums per year. I’d opt for In To The Mystic or pretty much any other track off Moondance

    Ray LaMontagne has some great slow songs.

    Go left field with Chic or some Bony M!

    Let’s get married or sunshine in leith by the proclaimers? (Unless you’re a Jambo in which case the latter might not be such a good choice)

    Smack my bitch up

    Prelude to the Afternoon of a Sexually Aroused Gas Mask, by Frank Zappa, would be my suggestion.

    Much as I like Drac’s suggestion how about True Companion by Marc Cohn? Meaningful lyrics though perhaps a bit old…

    “I’ve got a bike you can ride it if you like”

    You know more about music than most people I know Paul, surely you can come up with something.
    How about not having a first dance at all as its tediously bourgeois. You can invite friends to come up and join you and you can all dance together.

    We didn’t have a ‘first dance’ as such. After a ceilidh to get everyone moving and enough drink to help remove everyone’s inhibitions, we just had a favourite track that we decided we would meet for on the dance floor, to be put in randomly. Was great to find each other for the dance, considering how much time is spent with other people on the day.

    The Crimea – Lottery Winners on Acid, BTW.

    We had Hendrix, little wing. This was immediately followed by smack my bitch up! It got everyone else on the dancefloor pretty quick.
