One of the most maddening wedding chores--next to making up the guest list --is assembling the music you want played during the reception. "Wouldn't it be great," you think, "to have all my favorite love songs conveniently assembled on one CD? WEDDING DAY MUSIC is one step towards that goal. The disc mixes traditional "wedding" songs like Michael Peterson's terrific "From Here to Eternity" and Paul Brandt's "I Do" with a good collection of songs celebrating everlasting love.
From Bryan White's well crafted "Between Now and Forever" to the soft rock gloss of Little Texas' "My Love," couples are sure to find songs to fit their special day. It's refreshing to hear Gary Morris' original take on "Wind Beneath My Wings," so different from Bette Midler's version. But the gem is Randy Travis' "Forever and Ever, Amen," a bouncy, funny song that still manages to convey the depth of the singer's devotion. "They say time takes its toll on a body/Makes a young girl's brown hair turn gray," sings Travis. "Well baby I don't care/I ain't in love with your hair/And if it all fell out, I'd love you anyway." Now that's love!
