you girls have really good song! "thriller" is soo key for dancing purposes and i love the hawaiian version of "over the rainbow".

our must haves:

"stolen" by dashboard confessional
"over the rainbow" by iz (same as naangel55)
"teenage wasteland" by the who
"just like heaven" by the cure
"underneath it all" by no doubt
"won’t go home without you" by maroon 5
"bizarre love triangle" by new order
"just can’t get enough" by depeche mode
"living on a prayer" by bon jovi
"take on me" by aha

we like a lot of 80s music so the dancing part of the reception might end up like 80s night 🙂
