There are many opportunities to be creative with music when planning a wedding. In addition to decorating with color and flowers, rented furniture and favors, music can contribute to the atmosphere of each part of a special event.

I shot this video at Calamigos Equestrian Center in Burbank, CA. while playing prelude music as guests arrived for a wedding ceremony.
“BF” Before Flashmobs
Released in 1967 this song by Burt Bacharach and Hal David written for Dionne Warwick was featured in the 1997 movie “My Best Friend’s Wedding’ staring: Julia Roberts, Dermot Mulroney, Cameron Diaz, Rupert Everett, Philip Bosco.
The movie version of this song captures what looks like a spontaneous out break of song in a restaurant; it’s very well done. If 1967 or even 1997 is “BYT” “Before Your Time” check out these versions:
Here is the original Dion Warwick version (1967)
Here is an Aretha Franklin live version (1968)
One of my favorite versions of this song is performed here by Diana King (1997)
Note: This video was posted by an 11 year old who put up Dion Warwick’s pictures in her video post of this song thinking that this version was Dion singing. That’s okay, she’s into cool music.
Discovering New Music is an Adventure
I like all kinds of music and it can be actually dangerous for me to go to iTunes: “Listeners also bought…” and I am reminded of another great song that I have to have! It’s a lot of fun working with clients, planning their special events and talking about music… one great song leads to another!
