What is your wedding 'dream song'?

Hi all,

first, my definition of 'dream song'.

'Dream song' is a song that you love it very much. You think it is perfect for some wedding video but yet you haven't use that song. Maybe you are waiting for a special wedding the match the song, or you think you are not able to handle the song yet. You think you may ruin that dream song.

So, here is two of my dream song

Your song(Moulin Rogue Ver.)
I think this is a perfect song for song epic wedding. However, I haven't come across with such a wedding yet. I may use it later as a company demo.

Aerosmith - I don't want to miss a thing
My favorite epic love song. I think as a editor, I am not good enough to handle that song yet.

Oh man, I'm gonna have to disagree with you here. I believe aerosmith's don't want to miss a thing should be outright banned from all use in wedding video's, only coming a close second to beautiful day by U2. Maybe I'm just biased because our studio let's the couples decide the music and that aerosmith song and beautiful day end up in about 60% of the videos I end up editing. I shudder when I see either those songs on the music selection list, and if I ever encounter Steven Tyler or Bono on the street I don't know if I'll be able to hold myself back. Anyway, enough ranting I have to get back to editing a highlights montage to beautiful day for the gazillionth while trying not to hang myself in the process. Happy editing everyone!

'More' by Matthew West. I've used it before though and it makes for a pretty good closer.

Yes, I love the M and m thing. The song really works for your clip, which is why I like it so much, I guess. I also particularly like a couple of your shots. Just works for me.

I have a Recap video coming up soon that will be edited to "One" by U2. It will be a nice break from the "At Lasts" and the soon to be added to the list "I'm Yours" by Jason Mraz.

"She" by David Thiele for bridal prep. What makes this a dream is that not only is it an infectious little bit of pop confection, but David is an unsigned artist with no publishing deal. If you send him a nice email, he'll probably let you use the song all legal like. He is starting to get quite a bit of attention in LA so that may not be the case anymore.

As is probably known, I have a real disdain for the use of copyrighted music without securing rights. That being said, there are literally thousands of unsigned artists without publishing deals that would be flattered if you asked them to use a song of theirs in one of your productions. Sure it takes a bit of time to find them, but spend an hour or two on CDBaby and you might be pleasantly surprised.

Invincible - Muse
Supermassive Black Hole - Muse
Heartbeats - The Knife
We're in this together Now - NIN
Alive with the Glory of Love - Say Anything
Busy Child - The Crystal Method
Right Here, Right Now - Fatboy Slim
Hallelujah - LoFidelity Allstars

These would take very special couples.

I tried to use 'Hallelujah' in one of my wedding but it didn't work for me. I think the song is a bit sad in terms of mood and feeling. I end up using 'She' for that wedding.

One day I'd like to make a wedding video to November Rain by Guns N Roses, similar to its music video counterpart. Best man walking outside of the church doing a guitar solo and everything. Okay maybe not that, hehe. And maybe cut out the last part where the music video has a funeral scene :p
