Okay – I’m al about mixing things up – and so when we do the dollar dance at our recpetion I don’t want the same tired slow songs you always hear – ON NO…..I want a pure 1990’s slow song dollar dance.
My reasoning – I want reactions, like "OMG i haven’t heard this in forever" and for it to be even more fun, and it will give me something to talk about when weird Unlcle Greg dances with me and I don’t know what to say….maybe even prompt more people to get up and participate (not because I want the money but because this will be more like a recieveing line too since we’re not doing one do to time restraints between wed and recp, so I’ll get to talk to everyone this way)
80’s music is too "classic" now and it’s standard and wonderful don’t get me wrong – not enough UMPH so 1990’s it is….something funky, not played a lot….
Future mrs its a dance where the guest give you a dollar (usually they give you more) to take a turn dancing with each of you. I had never heard of it before this either. I went a wedding in TX and was like I totally want to do that.

Mr. Trebuchet & I have been having this discussion recently. We’re both huge 90s alternative fans, and we’re having a heck of a time finding a first dance song. We forgot how depressing 90s slow alt music was 🙂
There are lots of fun 80s ballads, I know you said you thought they were expected, but they might be fun. Like “When I see you smile” Bad English. What about Eric Clapton, or unexpected Beatles songs (“I’ll follow the sun”) Do you want something funny, “Just a friend” Biz Markie.
