Favourite Wedding Songs: Building a Definitive List

Favourite Wedding SongsSix years ago, I put together a wedding playlist for my brother's wedding. I shared the wedding playlist in an entry entitled 100 Wedding Songs.

I have renewed interest in updating this list of wedding songs. I'm not a fan of cheesy, poppy wedding songs, but cooler tunes like Pearl Jam's cover of "Throw Your Arms Around Me" and U2's "All I Want Is You".

I'm going to start building this list in this entry, but I need your help. Please leave a comment with cool songs you think would be ideal for a cool Toronto wedding.

No "Last Dance" and the like... not interested. I'd rather hear Radiohead's "True Love Waits".

The living and breathing list of our favourite wedding songs:

  • 311 - Love Song
  • Band of Horses - No One’s Gonna Love You
  • The Beatles - In My Life
  • Ben E. King - Stand By Me
  • Bill Withers - Lean on Me

Top New Rock Song of All-Time on 102.1 the Edge

Top New Rock Song of All-Time on 102.1 the EdgeThis long weekend, 102.1 the Edge counted down their top new rock songs of all-time. I'm naturally interested in such things, so I was curious what song they'd put at number one. I had my money on Nirvana's Smells Like Teen Spirit.

I was pretty damn surprised when I heard their number one new rock song of all-time was another song on that album. They went with Come As You Are. Nirvana's Nevermind is one of my favourite albums of all-time, and as awesome a single as Come As You Are is, I'm betting most folks wouldn't pick it as the top cut on the album, let alone of all-time. In fact, wouldn't Lithium or In Bloom rank ahead of Come As You Are? And wouldn't we all agree that Smells Like Teen Spirit is the seminal track on Nevermind?

So what we have is a song that might not be one of the top three tracks on the album it appeared on being ranked #1 of all-time. Flabbergasting, ain't it?

For the record, 102.1 the Edge had Smells Like Teen Spirit at #11 and Lithium at #27.

Does anyone have a theory as to how Come As You Are leap-frogged Smells Like Teen Spirit and Lithium to top this list?

  100. Ubiquitous Synergy Seeker - Laces Out
  101. The Smashing Pumpkins - Disarm
  102. Three Days Grace - Never Too Late

It's pretty amazing to see the #1 song from Labour Day 2011 finish 78th this weekend. That was a Red Hot Chili Peppers tune, a band that placed 10 songs in the top 102 last time, but only 3 this time. Are Edge listeners finally tiring of all RHCP all the time?

The Tragically Hip placed 8 songs in the top 102 this time around, making them champs. But this list looks surprisingly different than the last one. Santeria, a surprise #1 this time around, didn't crack the top 102 last time.

Does anyone else want to chime in with observations?
