Dave also stepped in in the last week to provide mics for the actual service, since we forgot we needed them on the…

Guests entered to the likes of the Temptations,…

That being said, you'll see in the list that I've included one slow song and I explain why below. Without further adieu, here you go! 1. Righteous Brothers' "Unchained Melody" Yes, I did put…
