Note to self: Apply for licensing to play music at reception venue
We were watching Deadpool when A commented that recent films have been featuring retro music instead of puke inducing songs like Love Me Like You Do, and we thought that would be a great theme for our w songs playlist! It is also a nod to A’s growing up years in the 70s and 80s, a characteristic that is probably shared with 80% of our guest list.
Angel of the Morning by Juice Newton (1981): This was the opening number for Deadpool, the lyrics go like this, “just touch my cheek before you leave me.” Seems highly inappropriate but I don’t think anyone will notice.
Calendar Girl by Neil Sedaka (1961): Also in Deadpool, it is about a prepubescent boy obsessed with the girls in his calendar pin ups. Certainly not a healthy obsession, but that sounds like A!
You Are So Beautiful by Joe Cocker (1974): Finally a song with decent lyrics, this was originally recorded by Billy Preston and made popular by Joe Cocker.
Time After Time by Cyndi Lauper (1984): Another classic love song, and hey, the first female on the list! This song is absolutely corny, but I like it.
4 songs down, 36 more to go! I will update periodically as the list grows.
