When guests arrive for your wedding ceremony, they should be greeted by a beautiful setting, a comfortable atmosphere, and appropriate wedding background music. These wedding songs are heard before the official start of the ceremony, which is usually keyed by the First Processional, or the parents processional (which will be covered later here at EzineArticles). Of course, Metallica and the Black Eyed Peas are probably not what you want to play here, but that doesn’t mean you have to use music that will put your guests to sleep!
“Sleepdriving” is driving slowly. In the chorus, there’s a repetition of the lyrics where Mat sings after the backing vocals by the rest of Grand Archives. It’s like a trailing way of singing and the effect of it is quite significant, creating an echoic wall of sound. When the break comes along, violin can be heard as Mat sings in little phrases. And as the end draws closer, the whole song got louder and the whole Grand Archives join in the fun and sing along side Mat. What this track has is the quality of a slow burner, which is like “Run” of Snow Patrol. It’ll burn you up slowly, and of course softly.
Another solution would be to contract with a subscription music source such a Muzak. If you have cable TV service at your company contact them. They may be able to offer you Music Choice or a similar service. These are the music channels you see on cable TV but branded specifically for re-broadcast.
One type of music that’s perfect for background listening is New Age. In fact, it’s designed to be just that! Non obtrusive and gentle, the New Age music style offers you a gentle and uplifting ambiance that can aid in work or relaxation..
The Roots – Dilla Joints: With the passing of Jay Dee (Dilla), hip-hop lost one of it’s greats. The Roots do their best to keep his memory alive with this album. No rapping on this album, this is just the Roots live band doing their version of some classic Jay Dee beats like “She Said” and “Look Into Her Eyes”. Anyone familiar with Jay Dee knows that his work is perfect for relaxing. Very jazzy and low key beat that are perfect for comedy background music while working. the Roots do a great job of making the beats come to life. Really, this is right up their alley. I am sure this would be easier to find than the above record.
For example, if you already have thoughts of using a track from Madonna’s album, you should just forgo the thought. Tracks like those are known as ‘copyrighted’ tracks. You are not supposed to use them. Even if you want to, you will have to purchase a license, and that will definitely cost you a bomb.
The wedding songs you pick for before the ceremony should reflect your music ideas, style and taste. Don’t be afraid to express yourself. It is, after all your wedding. Choose your wedding songs. Your music ideas. Be yourself and your guests will love you for that!
