As the countdown to Prince William and Kate Middleton's big day on April 29 continues, music fanatics are left wondering, what will the royal song list be like?
Will there be classic Beatles? Or 90’s British Pop? Will Snoop Dogg rap like Prince Harry wants?
George Michael stayed sober enough to record a song for Prince William and Kate Middleton, but I doubt they’ll be playing at the wedding. He made the track available to download for free, but hopes fans will make a donation to the Royal Wedding Charity Fund.
Michael was a friend of William's mother, the late Princess Diana, but said he wasn't expecting to attend the royal wedding. He tweeted that the couple should be "surrounded by people they love, not dodgy ex-con pop stars." HA! Gotta love his sense of humor.
When William’s mom and dad, Princess Diana and Prince Charles wed in 1981, Prince of Denmark's March, I Vow to Thee, My Country and the British National Anthem were the royal wedding songs.
There were rumors early on that Princess Diana’s good friend Elton John would perform at the wedding, but he told Hollysocop “there’s no truth” to the rumors, but he will attend as a special guest.
Rumor had it the Prince and his bride-to-be asked music royalty Beyoncé and Jay-Z to perform at their royal wedding reception, but considering they left the UK to come back to LA just this morning, I doubt that’s going to happen.
As long as they don’t pick ‘You’re Beautiful’ by James Blunt, any other first song will be fine by me. Which song do you think they’ll choose for their first dance?
Here are my predictions for the royal song list:
The Beatles – Eight Days a Week
The Cure – Just Like Heaven
Modern English – I Melt With You
Queen – You're My Best Friend
The Pretenders – I'll Stand By You
Paul McCartney – Maybe I'm Amazed
Elton John –Your song
The Beatles – All You Need is Love
U2 – Sweetest Thing
Billy Joel – She's Got A Way
