Josh & Alyssa’s Wedding Music Mix

I’m one of the few idiots that decided it was a good idea to DJ my own wedding. But, for months before the wedding day, I diligently prepared draft after draft of my four-hour-plus long playlist. It’s an eclectic set, ranging from ’60s kitsch to hits of the ’80s and some Cologne techno thrown in for good measure. Not only did I curate the mix, but I also beatmatched the vast majority of the tracks for seamless mixing and maximum danceability. And, for extra bonus points, I created a primitive mash-up of Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean” and After the Fire’s “Der Kommissar.” Nuts? You bet I am. Enjoy listening.

Track Listing
Bear in mind that the track start times are from where the track begins fading in. In some cases it takes a little while for the track to fully emerge, so track times will seem approximate.
