Music For an Informal Wedding

Wedding songs form an important part of creating the right atmosphere at your wedding. It is important to choose them carefully according to the style of your wedding and with an element of your own personal taste.

Choosing songs for an informal wedding opens up a huge range of choice; from traditional and classical to modern and contemporary, you can really choose anything you want.

Protect Your Songs

Many songwriters wonder if it’s really that big a deal to worry about getting songs stolen.

Why bother with copyright or song registration paperwork? My music is safe as soon as I write it down, right?

Well, yes and no.

True, actual copyright protection attaches as soon as original material is put into physical form. But…

You better be prepared to PROVE when your copyright protection started!

Songs get stolen more often than people might think. Cell phones make great secret audio recorders and if you are considering the Internet for your showcase… well you know how easy stealing things from there is!

And then there’s the more famous cases…

That’s what happened with George Harrison. His song “My Sweet Lord” was stolen from “She’s So Fine” (he admitted as much, though “by accident,” see below). Or Led Zeppelin’s lyrics on “Whole Lotta Love” coming from Willie Dixon’s “You Need Love.” Or “Dazed and Confused” taken from Jake Holmes.

New Song Music

The Quest for music the way you like it, or should I say I like it has often been an uneventful, and often times disappointing task. As I am sure a lot of you reading this right now would agree. Please allow me to define “music the way you like it”.

This applies to music which rejuvenates you, that allows you to see the brighter side of things or situations (That light at the end of the tunnel). This is the stuff that changes moods (from bad to good or vice verse), that may make an insurmountable task surmountable. Music is deeply Emotional, Music is Compassionate, and Music compliments our lives.

Have you ever found yourself tapping your hand or foot to an unfamiliar melody or beat, but then you realized that you were doing it and kept tapping just the same. During those rare occasions when we hear a piece of music that we like and have not heard before, and you wonder what the name is of that particular piece, and or the artist/artists name or album.

This can be a difficult task depending on the medium in which the New Song Music passed through your ear cavity. …

Romantic Melodies

Love is a feeling with which no one can stay untouched. It is an emotion full of abysmal bliss and empathy. Had there been no love and compassion in this world, life would have been harsh, dull and devoid of feelings. Music is the soul of the life without which it is simply bereft of rhythm, harmony and melody. Everyone falls in love and everyone loves music. Without the emotion called love music would be incomplete and without the bliss called music, love would be emotionless. Love and music are closely connected.
