Tom Petty is my all time favorite, and we are walking into the reception to “Here Comes My Girl” 

“You Wreak Me Baby” is a fun upbeat song

“Alright for Now” is my favorite soft and slow tune from him…

REM’s “at my most beautiful” is a really sweet song, and probably one of their only songs that’s straight-up romantic (most of their lyrics have more abstract or political meanings)

my new husband is a big REM fan, and he says:

“REM’s At My Most Beautiful is very sappy, and pure pop. it’s very slow and beach boys ish.  If he likes Petty & Floyd, he might prefer something with a bit more edge to it.  My choice would be “Be Mine” from REM – beautiful melody, but has a really nice quiet verse / loud chorus with huge guitar crescendo at the end.  “Strange Currencies” is a little bit of a ‘rough draft’ of Be Mine from an earlier album and a bit more in your face. “

We used “Be Mine” as our last dance song, and I really liked it, and think that could be a nice addition somewhere for you.   And it’s about getting married – there’s a line about rings and fingers! ๐Ÿ™‚  Give it a listen!  Good luck!
