To the sound of the beat

Another great sing-a-long song for those who can keep up with Freddy.

I just gotta get out of this prison cell
One day (someday) I’m gonna be free, Lord!
Find me somebody to love

You’re My Best Friend

Hands down the best wedding song released by Queen. The song can be incorporated into many different wedding events including parent dances, cake cutting, and first dance.

Bohemian Rhapsody

What a great song for a sing-a-long – just as in the movie Wayne’s World.

Lyrics To Inspire You:

Mama, ooh
Didn’t mean to make you cry
If I’m not back again this time tomorrow
Carry on, carry on

The March of The Black Queen

Released in 1974 on the album Queen II

If you are a huge Queen fan and want a unique processional song, this is the song for you!

Lyrics To Inspire You:

You’ve never seen nothing like it
No, never in your life
Like going up to heaven
And then coming back alive
Let me tell you all about it

Finally, select songs that are personal to you for your wedding. It is YOUR wedding. I remember going to the local bar growing up and listening to Fat Bottom Girls with friends. The song would make a great dedication to the groom’s friends from the groom and would fill the dance floor. Be sure to discuss with your DJ songs like this that have meaning and a great DJ will incorporate the song at the perfect moment.
