I call these great tunes because when they are combined with a strong slide show they will add to the ambiance and built a heightened sense of emotional awareness. Please use responsibly. Now, I’m a bit of an old fart when it comes to music and apparently I am not alone. I fit neatly into a market sector with just about anyone in their mid 40s according to tv advertisers. When Julie and I started our wedding photography career 10 years ago we were just in touch with our clients music tastes. Our clients were mostly in their late 20s and we were about 5 years their senior. Now we find ourselves in an ever increasing age gap that certainly shows in the music appreciation department.
This is a call out to all of you to add a few top tracks of your own. Especially if you have no idea what the Clangers are or Rhubarb and Custard for that matter. 5 of each genre please.
You are so beautiful – Joe Cocker (A serious tear jerker. Don’t use the live version)
The road – Mark Knopfler (A soundtrack instrumental to start the session)
Novio – Moby (Another instrumental)
Fields of gold – Sting (A favourite track at funerals so use with caution)
Jesus to a Child – George Michael (Has religious connotations so use with caution)
Time of your life – Green Day
Let there be love – Nat King Cole
Meditation – Thule (classical piece for strings – various recordings available)
Dusk you and me – Groove Armada
Someone like you – Van Morrison
