After performing at over 300 weddings over the past 10 years there are certain songs that seem to float to the surface when it comes to requests – for better or for worse. I call them “the songs that just wont die”. Some of them I am totally tired of hearing and I avoid singing them unless a really nice person sincerely asks for it, others I still don’t mind after all these years – I guess you just cant keep a good song down. So here is my list of the top 20 most requested songs of all time from a veteran wedding singer.
