help - i need beachy prelude music!
Posted 14 April 2010 - 03:25 PM
i don't want something instrumental and ambient but i'm shying away from classical tunes. i'd love to have something with a carribean flair.
suggestions? what have you used?

What about any Jimmy Buffet song? Has that tropical flair to it.
Or what about the song, "I'm Yours" by Jason Mraz?

i ended up grabbing an album from itunes of a steel drum band. the album is a little older, but i liked it because it didn't have a lot of well-known songs and it didn't have any vocals. it's called caribbean romance by Al St. John's Trinidad & Tobago Steelband.
16 songs or so for about ten bucks. nice and simple, beachy ambiance.

If you're not set on a song, I LOVE this one for beachy weddings:
Israel Kamakawiwo'ole'- Somewhere over the rainbow
Here's a youtube clip if you've never heard it:

and for our sand ceremony we'll have when i'm 64 by the beatles
we have a few that we're still tossing around for the recessional:fly me to the moon (either sinatra or astrud gilberto's version), for once in my life (stevie wonder), got to get you into my life (the beatles), or stepping out (tony bennett). FI may have come with some other ideas as well - this one's a tough one!
hopefully we'll decide this weekend!

In our beachy music we also had the ones cited above - Ismael and over the rainbow for prelude, Jason Mraz for our sand ceremony. We also put some reggae music - although it's more Jamaican it's still very beachy We used also "I can see clearly now" by Jimmy Cliff.
