Timo and I listen to a lot of music and have many favorite songs. On one of our first dates, Timo and I actually had a sing along to my Spotify playlist that was on. There are bluetooth speakers in the garage and in the bathroom for jam sessions. When we were building our house, the ONE thing Timo wanted was in-ceiling speakers and I agreed to that as long as I could get a bathtub with jets (we both ended up getting what we wanted). When he gets home from work, Timo usually turns on the music and it plays in the background while we go about our evening until we eventually decide to watch a show on Netflix.
In that vein, I am sharing the five songs that my DJ must play at our reception.
1. The Kill (Bury Me) by Thirty Seconds to Mars
Yep. A breakup song is #1 on the list. Because this was the first song that Timo and I had an epic sing along to. It was then I knew that this guy wasn’t someone I needed to be worried about judging me. He was willing to sing a breakup song with me on one of our first dates! We could have looked at it completely different (as a bad omen, if you will), but the music was so loud and we were both so into it, that it was a completely positive experience. And ya know, weird. Because who “carpool karaokes” to a break up song on a date? We do. #bestteamforever
2. Ahnma – Beginner
I honestly have no idea what this song is about because it’s in German. But Timo gets all white boy thug when it comes on and the chorus sounds something like, “Goldschlager shigga llama” and it always makes me (and Timo) laugh when I sing out the word sounds like that.
3. An Andrew McMahon song.
Probably Fire Escape or Cecilia and the Satellite. We actually went to see Andrew McMahon when he was in Charleston and it was epic. Especially the part where he crowd surfed on an inflatable duck… I cannot make that up. I have proof!
4. Alone by Marshmallo
Marshmallo is one of Timo’s favorite artists.
5. Hey Pretty Girl by Kip Moore
I used to listen to this song when I was in that “groom fever” phase of my life and it still never gets old thinking that Timo would “dedicate” this song to me on the radio if people still did that.
