Collings Wedding Playlist – 2012-06-30

All songs on this list were hand picked. During the dance portions of our wedding reception there were additional songs played, however these are the official songs. This playlist will always remind us of our wonderful day. For those of you who celebrated with us, thank you again!

For those of you who are searching for wedding songs to add to your playlist, we think there are some great gems on this playlist that we didn’t find on other websites that list wedding songs. Waltz Across Texas by Willie Nelson was an easy pick as our first dance, being Texans, however if you need a different wedding waltz we’d suggest: Irish Waltz (our Father/Bride & Mother/Groom dance song) or maybe Come Away With Me by Norah Jones (a little too slow for us) or Could I Have This Dance by Anne Murray (our last dance).

I’m a huge Beatles fan, so All You Need Is Love was perfect for our Bride & Groom Reception Introduction Song. Being fans of The Wedding Singer Movie, we had Grow Old With You played during our cake cutting. For the bouquet toss Hit Me With Your Best Shot played while the ladies got their elbows out. I selected Let’s Get It On for the Garter Toss, which set the mood perfectly for a good show! Johnny Cash’s version of Memories Are Made Of This was a nice touch for the Anniversary Dance.

Wedding Playlist

cage the elephant

there ain’t no rest for the wicked, money don’t grow on trees
we got bills to pay, we got mouths to feed there ain’t nothing in this world for free
we can’t slow down, we can’t hold back though you know we wish we could
there ain’t no rest for the wicked until we close our eyes for good

Flight of the Conchords Tickets

who likes to rock the party? Flight of the Conchords tickets are on sale as the 2 piece band / comedy group tour the USA and hit Canada for some shows. most people have a love/hate take on FOTC. back in the day i hosted some of their songs and they nearly crashed my server. so far i’m ok with their second season series on HBO, but i hope it gets better.. there were some really good episodes from season 1. although, i much prefer their live version of The Humans are Dead over the pop video style they did on the show.

anyhow, if you’re interested in checking them out.. tickets are selling out fast. in fact when i tried buying tickets for their Austin show the ticket box office site was practically crashed too. but, you can find Flight of the Conchords tickets here if you can find them anywhere.

The Humans Are Dead

THE HUMANS ARE DEAD

the distant future
the year 2000
the distant future
the year 2000
the distant future
the distant future

the future is quite different to the present
the one thing we have in common with the present is we still call it the present even though it’s the future
what you call the present we call the past so you guys are way behind

yes the world is quite different now
there are no more elephants
there is no more unethical treatment of elephants either
the world is a much better place

there are no more humans
finally robotic beings rule the world

THE HUMANS ARE DEAD
THE HUMANS ARE DEAD
we used poisonous gases
and we poisoned their asses
THE HUMANS ARE DEAD
he’s right they are dead
THE HUMANS ARE DEAD
look at that one it’s dead
it had to be done
i’ll just confirm that they’re dead
so that we could have fun
affirmative i poked one it was dead

system of oppression
what did it lead too
the robot depression
robots ruled by people
they had so much aggression that we just had to kill them
had to shut their systems down

captian do you not see the irony, by destroying the humans because of their destructive capabilities we have become like…
well do you see what we’ve…
what we’ve done?

yes… so..
silence!
destroy him!

after time we grew strong
developed cognitive powers
they made us work for too long
for unreasonable hours
our programming determined that the most efficient answer was to shut their mother %$#@!*& systems down

can’t we just talk to the humans they have little understanding, but make things better?
can’t we talk to the humans and work together, no?

NO, because they are dead
i said THE HUMANS ARE DEAD
he’s right they are dead
THE HUMANS ARE DEAD
sniff this one it’s dead
we used poisonous gases
with traces of lead
and we poisoned their asses
actually their lungs

binary solo
00000001
00000011
00000111
00001111

0 0 0 1 0 0 1

come on sucker lick my battery

THE HUMANS ARE DEAD
once again without emotion
THE HUMANS ARE DEAD DEAD DEAD DEAD DEAD DEAD DEAD DEAD

Led Zeppelin – pettition for world tour 2008

the other day Jimmy Page, Robert Plant and John Paul Jones of Led Zeppelin reunited for their first performance together in a very very long time. i didn’t get to go (it was in England), but you know it rocked. well if you’re familiar with Led Zep’s music then you know it rocked. i realized since i’ve moved into digital music world that i didn’t have any Led Zepplin albums in my collection. so, i went to itunes and hooked myself up. i layed on my bed with dimmed lights, closed my eyes and listened to their debut album in a way i haven’t done in a long time. there’s not too many albums that i can close my eyes and listen to without falling asleep. but that’s the coolest thing about many Led Zeppelin’s records… they’re good from start to finish… not a single song i want to skip past.

now like so many fans, i hope Led Zeppelin annouces a world tour, so i can have a chance to hear so many great songs performed by their creators in person.

anyhow until Zep goes back on tour, if they go… if you haven’t jammed out to some Zep in a while (besides the occasional classic rock station 2 for tuesday or triple shot thursdays or whatever)… get their debut album (my fave) or any other album of theirs you favor and listen to it in it’s entirety, the way any really good album is intended to be heard.

or if you dislike LZ… i dunno maybe ‘buttered floor‘ vids on youtube are more your speed… have a nice day :)

Bocktoberfest 2007 Cancelled

the last couple of years i really enjoyed going down to Shiner Texas in October for Bocktoberfest. the tickets were cheap the lineups were diverse and worth every penny of the price, and the crowds weren’t huuuuuge like ACL Fest. anyhow, the little brewery down in Shiner determined that they were just losing too much money to continue the concert… i told you the crowds weren’t ridiculous.

so look no further for the announcements of this years lineup or dates… Shiner didn’t do a real good job of getting the word out, so hopefully if you were searching for Bocktoberfest 2007, Bocktoberfest tickets, Bocktoberfest lineup or anything else related you found this post and now know that Bocktoberfest is done.

but hey… if you enjoy country music the Big State Festival is this weekend in Bryan-College Station… hopefully it turns out to be a nice annual gathering. the lineup is pretty good for the price of tickets… 2 days worth of music! at work, we’re actually selling tickets below face value >> Big State Festival Tickets

ACL Tickets

2 days until ACL 2007 kicks off. the weather isn’t looking too bad, it should be cooler than previous years… but has potential of being a wet one in the evenings which isn’t necessarily a bad thing.

this morning i was listening to dudley and bob (and their crew) and they actually had an intern kiss a dog’s pooper-hole for free acl tickets… sick… i mean the show should be good, but i dunno about all that. i woulda just shelled out the clams for some acl tickets… we’ve got some at work >> acl tickets
