Rewind: The Wedding CD

As we put the finishing touches on the newest Scott family CD, it is an opportune time to revisit the first two.

Our wedding was 6 years ago last week and when I revisit the track list from our wedding CD today, there isn't much I would alter. There are a couple songs that are either new or new-to-me since 2005 that would have been nice to include, but that is cheating. We entered the wedding reception to Talking Heads and had our first dance to the Magnetic Fields, neither of which I would change. The mini-suite of tracks 5-8 represent our departure from New York and our cross-country journey to our new home in San Francisco, with a proposal along the way. If pushed, I would probably pull either David Byrne or Shuggie Otis from the bonus tracks, if only merely to streamline the thing a bit.

In the Grooveshark playlist below I was not able to include the Norah Jones track (the Tom Waits original is substituted) or the Shuggie Otis track.

  1. This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody) by Talking Heads
  2. Thirteen by Big Star
  3. Wild West End by Dire Straits
  4. This Time by Los Lobos
  5. Leaving New York by R.E.M.
  6. The Long Way Home by Norah Jones
  7. Question by Old 97s
  8. California by Tom Petty
  9. Beautiful Girl by INXS
  10. The Book of Love by The Magnetic Fields
  11. How Sweet It Is by Junior Walker & The All Stars
  12. Your Song by Elton John
  13. Moonlight Mile by The Rollings Stones
  14. I Believe (When I Fall in Love It Will Be Forever) by Stevie Wonder
Bonus Tracks
  1. Emma Blowgun's Last Stand by Beulah
  2. Sweet Thang by Shuggie Otis
  3. Loco de Amor by David Byrne
  4. Somewhere Over the Rainbow by Israel Kamakawiwo'ole
