Our former singer Ali is getting married this spring, and just sent me this request...

What Grateful Dead song should be featured at our wedding reception? We're probably only going to play one, so what should it be? Should it be during the dancing or during the dinner part?

all suggestions welcomed

"loose lucy" and "jack straw"


How about "If I had the World to give" or "box of rain"

Two Souls In Communion

"What is the secret of this tie that binds?
Two souls in communion, both body and mind
Is it special magic, or just the nature of things?
Conceived of great spirit, not for beggars but kings"

You guys all missed it, HELL IN A BUCKET!!!!

"Maybe you should check out the circus
it just might be your kind of zoo
I can't think of a place that's more perfect
For a person as perfect as you!"


"With her black leather chrome spiked suspenders
Her chair and her whip and her pets"

Let's just say, I think that would send a rather unique message.

Cold rain and snow would be good too, but not until after dinner. For God's sakes, show some decency, this is a WEDDING after all!

Bucket was a great suggestion! Here's my pick for a tongue-in-cheek Robert Hunter song, although it's a ZERO song, not GD:

"Chance In A Million"
