A Night To Remember
1999, A Night to Remember
The story of the song is of a woman leaving a man but the man asking for one final night of romance and to make it a night to remember.

You just don’t want it to end
I know this can’t go on forever
So tonight I’ll have a night to remember


So Help Me Girl
1995, Third Rock from the Sun
A true love song is offered by Diffie that describes a relationship that he has fallen in love with his lover.  It also reads as he has been in bad relationships in the past but this one is right.  If you are looking for a 90s song for your first dance, look no further.

The way it feels
Each time we touch
I know I’ve never been so loved


Bigger Than the Beatles
1995, Life’s So Funny
If you are a couple in love, the song talks about a love that is bigger than The Beatles. The song references that even though they are not stars, they look like it to each other.

They got a love bigger than the Beatles
Wild and free like a Rollin’ Stone
They got a love takes ’em higher than the Eagles


Third Rock from the Sun
1994, Third Rock from the Sun
My favorite party song released by Diffie in his career.  The song will fill the dance floor in a line dance or Country swinging.

When you’re spinnin’ round
Things come undone
Welcome to Earth, third rock from the Sun


I’m In Love With A Capital “U”
1994, Third Rock from the Sun
Another true love song. However, this one is a mid-tempo two-step song rather than a slow dance.  Save this one for the couples at your reception.

It’s more better the I thought it would be
Girl you taught me things that I never learned in school
I’m in love with a capital U


Pickup Man
1994, Third Rock from the Sun
If the Groom is a 90s Country fan, he could have his groom processional song that would add comedy to the wedding ceremony.  It would release the nerves a bit too.

She tried to pay me with a kiss I began to understand
There’s just something women like about a PickUp Man


Prop Me Up Beside the Jukebox (If I Die)
1993, Honky Tonk Attitude
A pure party song that will get couples on the dance floor showing off their Cowboy Cha Cha prowess.

Fill my boots up with sand, put a stiff drink in my hand
Prop me up beside the jukebox if I die


Honky Tonk Attitude
1993, Honky Tonk Attitude
Diffie sure liked to entertain and this song fits his personality with another party song.  Time to get your Country Swing Dance shows on!

We need a slow dance, romanced, last chance rendezvous
We need a Friday night, get right, honky tonk attitude


John Deere Green
1993, Honky Tonk Attitude
Ever dance the Cowboy Cha Cha?  You can practice this song at home and then look like a pro at your wedding!

He wrote “Billy Bob loves Charlene” in letters three foot high
And the whole town said the fool should’ve used red
But it looked good to Charlene
In John Deere green


If the Devil Danced (In Empty Pockets)
1990, A Thousand Winding Roads
One of Diffie’s most popular songs as it reached number one.  The song has a more humorous tone and should be saved to play while guests are waiting for the wedding couple to arrive at the reception venue.

They say debt is a bottomless pit where the devil likes to play
I’d sell my soul to get out of this hole, but there’d be hell to pay


Home
1990, A Thousand Winding Roads
Home is Diffie’s first number one hit. The song tells a story of the good old days growing up at home with your family – and a place we remember as a fond place and wish to return.

The straight and narrow path he showed me
Turned into a thousand winding roads
My footsteps carry me away
But in my mind I’m always going home


New Way (To Light Up An Old Flame)
1990, A Thousand Winding Roads
An up-tempo two-step song you can play during the dancing part of your reception.

Now, I’m knocking on her door
I can’t stay away no more
‘Cause we’re no good apart
