Hey Mr DJ! - Part One

DH and I have started the detailed planning for our Copper Anniversary in October. How many years have we been hitched? Em, that would be twelve and a half... For those not familiar with this quaint Danish custom of celebrating wedding anniversaries 12 years and 6 months after the fact, it's all explained in a previous blogpost - Those Crazy Danes (Part 4)




The celebrations will include a big party and, of course, a professional DJ. And, as DH is  we're paying, we get to choose what he plays - he he! I'm putting together a list of essential tracks, which I'll add to my Flylady Copper Anniversary Control Journal. Lots of stuff from the 90s (when DH and I first met, aww), new hits and, naturally, some oldies but goldies. Guaranteed floorfillers, each and every one... But, as this list is only a starting point, please, please won't you feel free to chime in? Here are the first tunes that popped into my little head. Errors and exceptions (and country music) excluded! ;)

This sounds great Diane! If I may suggest I'm gonna be(500 miles)by The Proclaimers. DH and I have fond memories of travelling listening to Sunshine on Leith. Would have played it at our wedding if we could;)

Jen, that is a great one! I always find that "Sunshine on Leith" is a tearjerker...because I was born in Leith, went to school there and I saw The Proclaimers in concert on Leith Walk!!! :D
