The Talk of the Town… Wedding Reception Song List

This is the complete playlist from the GRC/Trimble merger party. The last set of songs never got played because everybody was tearing it up on the dance floor. At one point, Scott (the DJ) asked me, “So do you want to play these slow songs you gave me or keep the party going?” There was no question. We kept the party going. Also, there was no money dance, which explains why I’m flat broke.

Coming Soon:

– A Marriage Essay

– A Honeymoon Anecdote

After that, GRC will return to putting lude one-liners in the mouths of respected world leaders.

  1. Yeah, what happened to the money dance? I hope you got the $300 that drunk guy by the bathrooms promised he’d tuck into Liz’s harido for us. We had to leave early. He seemed nice.
