Here at Bridebird, music is crucial to our very essence. What I would obsess over at my wedding? The playlist. (Seriously; a likeminded friend just assembled 8 hours of music to play at his recent wedding, with different playlists at the ready in case people were bored, or sleepy, or pumped drunk.) In that spirit, we are thrilled to offer weekly playlists, inspired by a particular theme or feeling or pop cultural moment, that you can buy over at Amazon. Our only request? To please purchase the music legally; stealing, just like a crappy DJ, is poor form. And we know, we know; we left something out/included a dumb song/generally have strange musical taste. Tell us all about it in the comments!
Now that I’m in my mid-30’s, having listened to millions–literally millions; I’ve counted–more songs in the decade since my 20’s, I realize that picking just one for a “first dance” is an insane proposition. But if I had to go with one from this list, it would be “Bloodstream”–raw, intimate, and with dips and lulls enough for some fancy steppin’. And love like that? It’s worth marrying.
