Okay Niner Nation, I need your help

So, first off, I’m engaged. If you are facebook friends with me, please don’t say anything yet as we haven’t told everyone in my family yet.

Second, we’re working on a playlist for the wedding and I need great love songs, I don’t care about genre. Try to keep it family friendly. I have about 20k songs to go through and I’m going to forget some, so I am just looking for suggestions.

Nirvana - Drain You[/quote]
Wait, I’m confused (I stopped here on your list). I thought you wanted love songs.

I mean, I can see Son of a Gun even tho it’s not necessarily about love lol, but Dumb and Drain You don’t really fit. And Nirvana doesn’t seem like what I would think of as family friendly- unless your family is a bunch of people like me lol.

But I mean, if that’s what yall are going for, “Molly’s Lips” would fit pretty well me thinks.

Drain You is totally a love song, what are you talking about? Dumb is also a love song, but not as straightforward as Drain You.

I had a similar questions for NNN almost 3 years ago and here were the suggestions!


2 that come to mind

The Fratellis- Whistle for the Choir
Dire Straits- Romeo and Juliet(Not The Killers Cover)

Dire Straits, nice!

There were a few very good suggestions.

God Only knows in particular.

Congrats PB!

Welcome to the Jungle- Congrats

Yea, about loving to inject heroin…

Coheed and Cambria - Always and Never
Coheed and Cambria - Wake Up
The Cranberries - Dreams
Smashing Pumpkins - Landslide
Hootie and the Blowfish - I Go Blind
Muse - Starlight
Sublime ft. Gwen Stefani - Saw Red
U2 - Pride (In the name of love)
Infant Sorrow - Inside of You

Thanks Hootie/NA. I figure I’ve made a life of bad decisions, what’s one more?!

49times, thanks. Dreams is a great one. Linger would be awesome too. Infant Sorrow would be excellent also as I love FSM. I could also pretend I was marrying Kristen Bell! She’s one of my free pass girls.

Bust, Drain You is a love song as told through the eyes of two newborns. Dumb is a song about two people who love getting high together. While neither of those apply to us, they are both still love songs, albeit not traditional sure. I doubt you’re gonna find many people who have listened to as much Nirvana as I have on these boards or elsewhere. I was a pretty rabid fan for a long long time. I had 95% of their unreleased boxset before it came out from collections. I know what their songs are about. If they mean something else to you, that’s cool. I don’t have a problem with nontraditional love songs. If you want to talk about it more, I am more than happy to do it, but let’s do it in PMs cause I don’t want to clutter up this thread with that.

Hey PB, I don’t know if you like Dave Matthews or U2, but there a few good ones in there.

The Flaming Lips have a good one. Can’t remember the name but I think it is ‘With You’.

Another good Smashing Pumpkins song ‘Tonight Tonight’

You could probably play a lot of Iron and Wine.

I am blanking right now, but there was a station on Last.FM which was 90’sish Alternative rock but more family friendly. I usually listen to is when I am reading, and if I remember more i’ll post it.

Congratulations brotha!

don hendly & stevie Nicks - Leather and lace —for a love song
Divinyls - I Touch Myself —for a freak and fun song
