Ours was "You Got What It Takes (To Take What I Got)", originally recorded by Joe Tex. We used the duet arrangement recorded by Marti Jones with her husband, Don Dixon.

Back at you Marty - nice to see Don Dixon getting some props here too. A favorite producer of mine.

"God only knows"...Beach Boys
"You Were Meant for Me" by Donny Hathaway.
Miserlou by Dick Dale and the Deltones. Pulp Fiction was the first movie we attended together.
Hit "submit as is" too quickly. Miserlou is based on a Lebanese wedding song that Dick Dale's uncle, a Lebanese-American, would play. There are variations of the same song in Egyptian, Greek and Sephardic-Jewish traditions (none of which we are), so it was less odd than it seemed -- although we all had visions of Vincent Vega, Marcellus Wallace and maybe The Gymp in mind.
Neither my wife nor I are Lebanese

Wait, that was what was playing during Larry King's wedding.
Dead Kennedys "Too Drunk To F*ck"

Over The Rhine - Rhapsodie
No that is not the name, that is what it sort of is.
Let's just say it was a signature #1 80's power ballad from a one hit wonder Canadian rock group circa 1989.
A good tune for what it is but still a bit embarrassing.
Sweet Love, by Anita Baker,
[although Dead Kennedys should have been more seriously considered - good one, Richard stacy]
I wrote our wedding song and had the band learn it beforehand. Yes, it was truly a magical moment for us, but the problem is that we will never hear it again on the radio, or be able to request someone to play it for us.
It was called "All I Want is You" and involved a duet between the male singer (conveying my thoughts) and the female singer (conveying hers).
This thread reminds me that I facetiously suggested "(You've Tied Me Down With) Battleship Chains" by The Woods (later covered by Georgia Satellites) and "No More Casual Sex" by Kid Creole. Got nixed on both but both were played later at the party.
