The perfect wedding playlist

So I’m single. There isn’t a wedding in my near future. But I’m at the age where it’s normal for my friends to get married/engaged/pregnant now, which continues to freak me out. When I’m not panicking about my friends’ weddings, I think a lot about my future wedding, my hopefully-cool-with-paying-for-a-DJ future husband, and all the music that will play during the reception. Music is a big part of my life, so it makes sense that it should be a part of my big day.  Whenever I talk about my future wedding, music is usually what I focus on, i.e. “This song will TOTALLY play at my wedding!”

I saw this list on the internet and hated it. The mature thing would be to say that people have different tastes and what one person has on their playlist might not appeal to everyone.

Top 10 Walk the Moon lyrics

In 2012, my brother and I were walking around in Old Navy when we heard this song. We loved that it was upbeat and had a crazy time signature and most of the lyrics were “oh oh oh.” It was basically the song described in One Direction’s “Best Song Ever” and we thought that title was fitting. Unfortunately, it was over before William could Shazam it.

Fortunately, William found the song, “Tightrope,” a few months later. Both of us were surprised to find the band, Walk the Moon, had also written the song “Anna Sun,” which played nonstop on the radio that summer. That Christmas, I bought him Walk the Moon’s first album. Countless road trips, 2 matching mohawks, and 1 awesome concert later, Walk the Moon is our favorite band.

Walk the Moon is awesome. Lead singer Nicholas Petricca has said the band’s goal is “to make people dance and feel good,” which is both noble and all I ever want from music. The four band members are excellent musicians with shockingly great hair.

Hair comparison
Eh? Ehhhh?

While working on a DIY project, I trolled the internet for ideas and found a list of inspirational Walk the Moon lyrics. I am nothing if not a copycat, hence this post. While I tried to be diverse in my choices, some lyrics spoke to me more than others, and I ended up drawing from my 5 favorite Walk the Moon songs. So here are my top 10 favorite Walk the Moon lyrics, lack of variety and all.
