Dance, dance, dance, dance, dance, to the radio...

Shuffleathon Update

I don't know what you think, but it feels to m e a bit like this bloody thing has been going on f-o-r-e-v-e-r. Still, as someone once said, I've started so I'll finish.

[are we nearly there yet?]

I'm sure we'll get there eventually. I know you are all hanging on for the big finale and the stats-filled round up, but frankly there's no rush. We're only waiting on a couple of resends, and I reckon we can wait a bit longer yet.

I'm still taking suggestions for a song for the first dance at my wedding, by the way. In fact, I'm quite interested in a playlist for the whole thing, so if you've got any bright ideas, then fire away.

Here are some possible categories:

-> Most appropriate song
-> Most inappropriate song
-> It's crap but we love it
-> Get up and dance
-> Cheese
-> it's ace, innit?

C's brother and his missus starting their married life to "Let's Spend The Night Together" by the Rolling Stones has kind of set the benchmark. I'm counting on you.

Knock yourselves out.


  1. Inappropriate: "Nothing Lasts Forever" by Echo and the Bunnymen?

  2. I've got a few suggestions..... they'd probably fit best into the inappropriate songs section.....

    Prince - Sexy Mother Fucker
    Kanye West - Gold Digger
    Bloodhound Gang - The Bad Touch
    Madonna - Like a Virgin
    Tenacious D - Fuck Her Gently
    Nirvana - Rape Me
    Prodigy - Smack My Bitch Up

    It's probably best that you dont ask me to DJ ;)

  3. There's always...I Predict a Riot or Crazy. Again, those would be pretty inappropriate.

    Gee, that seems to be the easier category...

  4. Can I refer you to my entry for W in the Art of Noise A-Z.

    Inappropriate wedding songs include:

    "Yesterday" by the Beatles
    "It's the end of the world as we know" it by REM
    "Killing in the name of" by Rage Against the Machine

    However, for a first dance, I'd strongly recommend the theme tune to the A-Team. (How great would the look on people's faces be...)

    You might also want to avoid "Fat Bottomed Girls" by Queen.

  5. How about I Started Something I Couldn't Finish by the Smiths? Not sure which category that fits into. Best avoided - You're the One for Me, Fatty...

  6. Too Drunk To Fuck - The Dead Kennedys
    I Used To Love Her (But I Had To Kill Her) - Guns N Roses
    D.I.V.O.R.C.E - Tammy Winette(?)

    I think you might well find the most appropriate song through a process of elimination...

  7. Help! or perhaps The Great Escape...?

    Swisstoni, Ian's icon is frightening me...

  8. 'So here it is, Merry Christmas, everybody's havin fun.' Excellent singalong song for any time of year! Mike's Ma

  9. ST, it looks like you might come to regret asking us lot for first dance suggestions! :-)

    I got Graham's CD the other day and have given it one listen in the car, I will try and get the review done this weekend. Phew!
