    Dance lists are so hard to come up with!
    We're working on ours and I will post when we're done.

    Tammy, you crack me up... so Milkshake by Kelis is okay to play for the old folks yet not the hip hop songs? ha ha

      hahaha Karla, I was thinking the same thing!

      I've put my honey in charge of creating our playlists. I haven't asked for a status lately, but I actually think he'll do a great job. I'll just have to inject some current music in I'm sure. I'll see if I can get him to give me his list so far & I'll post.

      **Last night he was working on putting together a slide show from all the pics he took at his recent high school reunion. He's getting really good at it! I was impressed - music, transitions, captions. He wants to buy some upgraded software so he do an even better job w/our wedding pics. :) I'm stoked!

          Here's my list. For the most part, I deleted duplicates that Tammy already listed since she had so many great ones. I used to be into salsa dancing (and also lived in Spain for a while) so there's lots of songs in Spanish on my list. Even if you can't understand the words (like my FI), it can add a fun flavor to the reception.

                Maria Elena,

                Don't be surprised if my list has many of the same Spanish songs. I was just looking through my iTunes and I have most of those. We have the same taste in Spanish music! I would add off the top of my head: La Bomba - Ricky Martin and a few Juan Luis Guerra songs.

                Are you having a DJ?

                And which Ojos Asi from Shakira are you playing? The one from the MTV Unplugged is my favorite.
