Secret Weapon Songs?

What takes a wedding from "good" to UNBELIEVABLY GREAT?

Secret Weapon Songs!!!

That's why we'll spend so much time talking about your favorite music. I'll ask you about road trips, spring breaks, what year you graduated high school and college - all to help you think of your "Secret Weapon Songs."

Here are 2 video examples with songs I might not normally play, but...they were RIGHT ON TARGET for these particular groups:

Secret Weapon Songs - Example 1 by JimCerone.com

"Copperline" - James Taylor
"Werewolves of London" - Warren Zevon
"Shipping Up to Boston" - Dropkick Murphys
"Best Day of My Life" - American Authors
"Save the Last Dance" - Michael Buble

Secret Weapon Songs - Example 2 by JimCerone.com

"All These Things That I've Done" - The Killers
"You Make My Dreams" - Hall & Oates
"Dancing On My Own" - Robyn
"Born to Run" - Bruce Springsteen
