appropriate sub-theme or too out there?
Posted 30 April 2008 - 01:31 AM
Here's my question -- I've been going through music for two weeks now and I keep coming back to one thing -- Beatles songs basically are becoming a dominant on my playlists almost to the point of being a "theme". I realize we are having a DW so that in itself is out theme...but would it be appropriate to have a "love/beatles" song "sub-theme" provided I kept it in check as opposed to continuous and overwhelming and upbeat as opposed to solemn and sappy? For background music during the dinner hour I keep coming to songs like:
All You Need Is Love
I Want to Hold Your Hand
Here Comes the Sun (I may walk down the aisle to this actually)
Got to Get You Into My Life
When I'm 64
I can also see weaving some song lyric quotes in other places for continuity...(e.g., ceremony program dedication to loved ones who have passed and having a quote from "In My Life" before the tribute, toast to the wedding party with "With a Little Help From My Friends" playing before...)
What are the thoughts on this? I obviously am receptive to negative feedback since I have some serious doubts about how this could come off? It's one of those things that I think might only work in my head and not actually play out so well...
So cute way to personalize the evening? Or overkill? Too bizarre? Cheesy?

My middle name was after the Beatles song "Michelle". I am going to do the father/daughter dance to it. When my dad suggested it, I started to cry.

I think if I did my father-daughter dance to "Julia" I would never make it through -- my Dad used to sing it to me all the time when I was little so it has lots of memories. I don't think he'd make it through the dance either though! :-)

I was worried that it wouldn't have reasonance with other guests or that they would be like "Oh this again! Please give us a little variety already" but I think you're right -- I've never meet anyone who doesn't love the Beatles. (I wonder how many people have Beatles playlists on their ipods..I know me and my FI both do!)
Thanks for the feedback and support guys!
