    anna rose - vienna tang - warm strangers
    drought - vienna tang - waking hour

    maggie's theme - james galway - in the pink

    breathe (2am) - anna nalick - wreck of the day

    gordon james - govt mule - by a thread

    norwegian wood - the beatles

    piano man - billy joel

    river lullaby - amy grant - prince of egypt

    show me the way - styx - come sail away (this one surprises people the most)

    A new to me song that I think is cool is "Welcome to Mystery" by the Plain White T's. (off of the Alice in wonderland soundtrack) It is a cool song, but it is in the zone that is Very fast for a slow waltz, but slow for a V. Waltz.

    Not necessarily for, but perfect for a wedding, especially a white wedding!

    I wonder if we're thinking about how apt these songs are for a wedding.

    Piano Man isn't, IMO. I Won't Give Up, while a very lovely and romantic song, is a song in which one person is waaaaaay more committed to the relationship than the other person...which I hope isn't the situation when you're getting married to someone.

    Remedy or one and only by Adele.

    Suffer by Charlie Puth works if everyone acknowledges that that woman is cold hearted.
