Married Life Live, February creative…

Married Life Live is an event at North Point that I’ve had the pleasure of being a part of for about 3 years now. I started out in the band, which was a huge honor, and through an odd set of circumstances a year ago was asked to be the band-leader. Pretty cool, since it’s an event that the best of the best (and me;))are booked for.

Well we had a creative meeting today. One of the items on the docket was an initial list of songs to choose from. Of course they’re narrowed down based on available singers, topic, content (or lack thereof!), style, familiarity, whether we’ve done them before (which becomes a big issue after a few years!) – stuff like that.

Anyway, EVERYONE has opinions about the music, and all the opinions are different. I guess that’s good for all the people CREATING music, since there’s bound to someone out there that likes their music, but it makes for some tense moments when selecting content for a live event.

SO HERE’S YOUR CHANCE TO PARTICIPATE!! Here’s our working list. What 6 (or less) songs would YOU want to hear? Or, rather what songs do you think should be performed to make it a cutting edge, impressive, yet comfortable event?

The Way You Look Tonight – Standard
L-O-V-E – Nat King Cole – Standard
I’ve Got You Under My Skin – Standard
Try A Little Tenderness – Standard
Love Song – Sara Baraeilles
Taking Chances – Celine Dion
Our Song – Taylor Swift
The Way You Love Me – Faith Hill
Sweet Love – Anita Baker
No One – Alicia Keys
Giving You The Best – Anita Baker
Crazy Little Thing Called Love – Queen
Maybe I’m Amazed – Paul McCartney (Wings)
Hate How Much I Love You – Rihanna & Ne-yo
Superstitious – Steve Wonder
Tattoo – Jordon Sparks
Say You Love Me – Fleetwood Mac

We’ll eventually narrow it down to 6 or 7 tunes, spread out evenly between our 3 lead singers (guy, Pop/Rock girl, R&B girl).

What would YOU like to hear?

  1. Okay, Reid, here’s my $.02 – as a guy, not an event planner:

    The Way You Look Tonight – Standard
    The Way You Love Me – Faith Hill

    So-so on the others. But I know you guys will plan an unforgettable evening. (Natalie Cole?)

    Have fun with it! See you then.

  2. Reid,

    I saw Dexter Redding sing Try A Little Tenderness backed by the BarKays at an Otis Redding memorial event. That song and his performance were the highlight of the event. Dexter lives in Macon and you may be able to get him for Married Life Live if you are interested.


  3. Love the song “Crazy Little Thing Called Love” “Superstitious” I like, but will it go with the program? The first 4 songs on the list are great! 🙂 Hope to come up on the 10th! I know it will be great!!
