I just had my engagement party this past weekend, on the 9th of July 2011.
I spent some time choosing the songs, to try and choose not only songs that would get the party started, or songs that I love, but also songs that I know my fiancee loves. Sometimes I would choose my favourite song from one of her favourite artists (e.g. Spoon - The Underdog), and sometimes her favourite song by one of my favourite artists (e.g. Regurgitator - Superstraight).
Anyway, here is the list, in reverse played order from that night:
Ben Kweller – Wasted and Ready
Gomez – Girlshapedlovedrug
The Bens – Just Pretend
The White Stripes – You're Pretty Good Looking (For a Girl)
Regurgitator – ! (The Song Formerly Known As)
Los Campesinos! – My Year in Lists
The Grates – Sukkafish
Jens Lekman – You Are the Light
The Get Up Kids – Mass Pike
Brand New – Soco Amaretto Lime
The Black Keys – Tighten Up
Prince – 1999
The Black Keys – Have Love Will Travel
