The Inspiring Ladies of Music Wedding Cocktail Hour Playlist

If the topic of love is a songwriter favorite, then the topic of women can't be far behind. This playlist features songs written in honor of a woman. For example, Michelle (the Beatles), Peg (Steely Dan) and Gloria (Laura Branigan). The playlist starts on a slow and romantic note before enjoying an extended classic rock segment and an upbeat finish. More than an academic exercise, the songs selected needed to stand on their own merit - they are songs that we would consider for any wedding cocktail hour playlist!

Ambient DJ continues its tradition of selecting a signature drink for each wedding cocktail hour playlist. In honor of "Brandy (You're a Fine Girl)" by the Looking Glass (a band formed in New Brunswick NJ), we've selected the "Brandy Alexander" - a tasty mixed drink that combines cognac and creme de cacao. Cheers!
