iPod Wedding Playlist: Part Deux

Dear all y'all fantastic 2000 Dollar Wedding readers,
Matt B. (Sara's partner) here again and I've got a couple things to get off my chest before I begin:
  1. Thank you for the wonderful comments on my previous post. Sara forwarded all of them my way. I should have responded and will make an effort to respond this time!
  2. If you remember, and were harmed in any way, by my not writing three playlists in the three weeks that I originally set-out to, I apologize. My Sara didn't schedule me into her busy post schedule until now.
So, without further adieu, here is the wedding iPod playlist from our reception dinner. There are some of my favorites of all time in there, but it can most-definitely be improved on. So, take it, improve upon it, and share it out!

P.S. - There are a number of YouTube links below, if you're interested in taking the audio out of them... not that you would be... I've heard there are websites that can do it for you like http://www.listentoyoutube.com/ or http://www.vidtomp3.com/

Note to self: As I read back over what was played, I regret the serious lack of theme beyond "it's fairly up-tempo and I like it". In fact, the reception list reads more like a break-up mix, e.g. "So Sorry", "Forks and Knives", "What Makes you Think You're the One". I need to fix this in time for my next wedding.

I just want to say that I love the Be Good Tanyas and, despite being one of those "whatever works for YOU" people, I think everyone else should too. =)

I would have loved to dance at your wedding.

By the way, you may want to know that it's "without further ado," "ado" meaning fuss, as in Much Ado About Nothing. "Adieu" is a way of saying goodbye in French that's used for extended partings (as opposed to "au revoir," meaning "until I see you again," which is a casual, everyday goodbye).

I'm not trying to be a jerkwad--just sharing some useful/interesting info.

Sb, as promised, I'm replying to comments. I was under the impression that "adieu" wasn't the correct spelling, so, while writing the post, I did a quick Google search and there were many others that spelled it "adieu". The internet NEVER lies, so I just went with it...

You are by no means a "jerkwad" and your willingness to correct and not embarrass is welcome!
