Help me find some music
Posted: Oct 21, 2008 11:21 AM

I've always wanted to have a "rat pack" feel to my reception during dinner. I'm starting to get a list of songs together for the dj but needed some help thinking of either songs or artist that fit that mold. Thanks!

why not go with the rat pack,

sinatra has alot of great songs, strangers in the night, l.o.v.e., all the way, love and marriage and many more

i know dean martin has aint that a kick in the head (cute), and thats amore, and im sure more

sammy davis jr has a few, shen your smiling (w/sinatra and martin), love is all around, somethings gotta give, etc.

and then theres always a few elvis songs that have that same feel to them as well.


 Why does November 1st seem sooooooooo far away?????
