I’m in the process of coming up with a list of goodies which include a lot of my indie/alternative favorites. I’m from MN so I am incorporating love songs from MN musicians as well. For the 1st dance I’m thinking of using Daft Punk’s “Something About Us” but I want to remove the verses because I don’t find them appropriate. The chorus is incredibly romantic though. Soo… remix!


Prince – Kiss

Cake – Love You Madly

Noah & The Whales – 5 Years Time

Mason Jennings – Just Try

Yeah Yeah Yeahs – Maps

Temper Trap – Sweet Disposition

The Cure – Love Song

INXS – Never Tear Us Apart

The Suburbs – Love is the Law

Prince – I Will Die For You

Bob Marley – One Love

Iron & Wine – Love and Some Verses

Jose Gonzales – Heartbeats

Bob Dylan – Make You Feel My Love

Ben Harper – Forever

Bright Eyes – 1st Day of My Life

Trampled By Turtles – I’m Still in Love With You

Empire of the Sun – Walking on a Dream

Atmosphere – She’s Enough

Prince – Take Me With You

Nada Surf – Always Love

The Magnetic Fields – Book of Love

Smashing Pumpkins – In the Arms of Sleep
