Katie & Rob: Wedding Playlist

Here's the link to a playlist of the happy couple's favorite songs that they played on their wedding night. Rob handcrafted the playlist on his iPod and Katie has these comments to make:

They chose "The Way I Am" by Ingrid Michaelson as the first song they danced to as husband and wife, "because we wanted to pick something personal and low-key...and short enough not to bore our friends!"

Katie calls "In Your Eyes" by Peter Gabriel, "a guilty favorite...but we figured we are probably not the only people who are ashamed to secretly love this cheesefest." They picked "It Had to Be You" by Harry Connick Jr. because they wanted " a little something for the older folks." They blasted "You're the One that I Want" by John Travolta & Olivia Newton John, because "with a theatrical crew like ours, there must be showtunes!" "Shipping Up to Boston" by the Dropkick Murphys might seem like an odd choice, but Katie calls it "a fun nod to my Irish heritage, and to Boston." And of course they had to include "Signed, Sealed and Delivered" by Stevie Wonder, which just so happens to be Rob's favorite song of all time.

As someone who remembers going on my first movie date in 1992 to see Benny & Joon (shout out to Tim Reno, wherever you are), I love what Katie has to say about "I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)" by The Proclaimers: "I had to lobby hard for this one to make the playlist...believe it or not, the one and only little girl fantasy I ever had about my wedding was to have this song played.  He wasn't sure anybody would be into it, but luckily, people danced their asses off!"
