      This is a great thread! Thanks for all the great songs everyone!! I've got a while to plan but once I have a list, I'll add it!

      One song I really love and I'm not sure where to incorporate it is Hallelujah by Leonard Cohen, (maybe K.D. Lang's version after hearing her sing it in the opening ceremonies.. beautiful!)
