5 Wedding Songs to Geek Out Over 27 May 2014 Admin Wedding Posts A geeky couple looking for some unique songs to play at their wedding should definitely put these five songs on their playlist. The Imperial March - Star Wars Everyone knows Star Wars, even non-geeks. But to a couple who met in line at the movie theater, or spent hours debating about the remakes, this song is perfect. It's bold, dramatic, and perfect for a bride who wants to make an impression while walking down the aisle. It would undoubtedly bring a smile to all the geeky guest's faces, and it would surely be a hit to the younger guests as well. And if any more conservative relatives object, well, it may be appropriate to find their lack of faith disturbing. Time Warp - Rocky Horror Picture Show The Time Warp is the most popular song from the cult classic Rocky Horror Picture Show. It's a high-energy song that will hook everyone with its catchiness. Forget songs like YMCA or the Cha-Cha Slide, this song will get everybody at the reception up and dancing. Like the aforementioned two, this song has an associated dance, the steps to which are right in the lyrics. Unless the couple themselves are Rocky performers, this song works better as a general reception song than a first dance. When you play it, everyone will be asking you do do the Time Warp again! Geeks in Love - Neil Cicierega Neil Cicierega might be an indie artist, but no one can deny his viral music video was incredibly catchy. The song is a fun and upbeat tale of two geeky people who found each other and fell in love. Whether the happy couple met at a Star Trek convention or on the forums of a gaming website, this song emphasizes the shared passion that brought them together. This is a good song for the reception in general, but if a couple prefers to be more funky than just swaying along, this can be a good first dance as well. To Zanarkand - Final Fantasy X The Final Fantasy series is one of the most popular video games out there, and it has a correspondingly popular soundtrack. To Zanarkand is an instrumental song, but even so, it manages to give off a feeling of hope and looking to the future. It's a great song for those with more traditional families, since it won't be obvious it's from a video game. As it's a slower song, it would be perfect for the couple's first dance, but could be equally as great played during the reception. However, the most wonderful thing recommending this song is the variety of covers it has. Not only is there the lovely original version, featuring the piano, but also guitar, vocal, and even fully orchestrated versions. Mario 64 Overworld Theme - The Big Band of Rogues For a couple that wants to add a bit of pizzazz to their wedding, The Big Band of Rogues did a bombastic version of the classic Super Mario 64's Overworld Theme. This is another instrumental song, but with its upbeat rhythm and complex melodies, it doesn't need any lyrics; the guests will be clapping along regardless. This song will be an instant hit with anyone who's played the game, as well as with the older set, who will just hear a lovely big band song. It's a great song for the reception, or even the couple's first dance. Author Bio: Dani B. was born of two geeky parents with a SNES controller in her hands.
