Music for my wedding

(1/6) > >>

If it's God's will, my bride and me are getting married next year at the end of March, and we want to select the music for the party. My future wife will select some music she likes and I'll do the same. Problem is, most of our family and friends don't usually listen to the music I like, and I don't want to offend the guests with something very out of the ground. I mean, my favorite song is "Tomorrow Never Knows", but should I include such a weird track? I finally thought of selecting music from my very favorite bands but not exactly my very favorite songs, as I think it would be wiser to include some of the most well known songs from them (and mostly by the Beatles). I don't pretend to introduce my music to the people but to make them enjoy the night. This is a tentative first list of songs:

The Beatles
I Saw Her Standing There
I Want To Hold Your Hand
Can't Buy Me Love
A Hard Day's Night
Norwegian Wood
Nowhere Man
In My Life
Eleanor Rigby
Strawberry Fields Forever
Penny Lane
Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds
Hey Jude
Let It Be

Buffalo Springfield
For What It's Worth

The Byrds
Mr. Tambourine Man
Turn! Turn! Turn!
Eight Miles High

Jefferson Airplane
Somebody To Love
White Rabbit

The Kinks
Waterloo Sunset

Alone Again Or

The Who
My Generation
I Can See For Miles
Pinball Wizard

The Yardbirds
For Your Love

The Zombies
She's Not There
Time Of The Season

30 songs, a little more than 90 min of music, and the order will be randomized. But as I said, my bride will select her songs as well.

What do you think?

I think some Stones for dancing;

Honky Tonk Women
Lets Spend the Night Together
Brown Sugar
Paint It Black

I love the Stones (and the Doors, the Beach Boys, etc.) but they're on a second level in my preference and the list cannot be so long.

If there will be dancing....

You Can't Hurry Love-The Supremes
Ain't Too Proud To Beg-The Temptations
I Can't Help Myself-The Four Tops  party2

I mean in my opinion Here, There and Everywhere is the most marry-able song in the catalogue.
