Bonus Track Suggestions

Yes, if you’ve always dreamed of walking down the isle to Pachelbel’s Cannon in D, then that is the right song for you – but if you’ve never heard the song, and it doesn’t move you emotionally, maybe it’s time to look for something that does.  Be original and find something that speaks to the both of you.
