THIRDS Thursday – 7/20/17 Pick the Wedding Playlist

Hello, THIRDS Nerds! As I work on revisions for Tried & True (THIRDS, Book 10), I have a select number of songs picked for Dex and Sloane’s wedding that will be in book 10’s official playlist, but I also wanted to put together a wedding playlist. Then I thought it would even more fun if I let you guys pick the music! You get to be the wedding DJ’s!

Now the official playlist can only have so many songs (I’m thinking twenty at most), so the songs that aren’t chosen for the wedding album will go into the Tried & True Fan Playlist.

I’m sure it won’t surprise you that Dex and Sloane’s first dance as husband and husband will be to Journey’s “Faithfully”. I also have some fun surprises in store for the reception. I mean, it is Dex’s wedding after all. So what songs do you think should make it to the official wedding album? Place your song choices in the comments below!

I’ll be taking songs until midnight (Eastern US time), August 30th to give folks plenty of time to enter. The chosen songs will be posted on Thursday, August 31st.


  1. With tongue planted firmly in cheek: What’s New Pussycat, Tom Jones

  2. Eye of the Tiger – Survivor

  3. This song is so sweet and I think it would be perfect for the awesome couple. It’s called “In case you didn’t know”, by Brett Young. Just listen to it, and you’ll see what I’m talking about.

  4. They have to play The Electric Slide! I can totally see Dex dragging Sloan out to the dance floor to shake their assets!

  5. You and me – Lifehouse
    Don’t want to miss a thing – Areosmith

  6. Pride and Joy by Stevie Ray Vaughn, When I look into your eyes-Firehouse, Feels like forever by Joe Cocker, Welcome to the jungle by Guns and Roses, Pour some sugar on me by Def Leppard

  7. Is This Love-Whitesnake

    I could so see Dex singing this to Sloane at the reception….OMG..It is making me tear up just picturing it. Then for fun he would sing Pour Some Sugar On Me by Def Leppard…..^___^

  8. I Could Not Ask For More- Edwin McCain
    Your Arms Feel Like Home -Three Doors Down
    Tangled Up In You-Staind
    I Can Be Your Hero-Enrique Iglesias
    Somebody Loves You-Betty Who

  9. For Sloane The Clash- Rock the Casbah
    Metallica – Nothing else matter
    KISS – I Was Made For Loving You
    B52s- Love Shack
    Meat Loaf – Paradise By The Dashboard Light
    Bonnie Tyler – I Need a Hero
    Bee Gees – You Should Be Dancing
    a-ha – Take On Me

  10. Say you won’t let go by James Arthur, Songbird by Fleetwood Mac

  11. Pride and Joy by Stevie Ray Vaughn, When I look into your eyes-Firehouse, When you lie next to me by Kellie Coffey, Feels like forever by Joe Cocker, Welcome to the jungle by Guns and Roses, Pour some sugar on me by Def Leopard.

  12. There are so many songs to choose from. My first thought was that Dex would want as many people as possible on the dance floor, so songs that have moves or dances connected to them:

    Shout – Isley Brothers
    Electric Boogie – Marcia Griffiths
    Thriller – Michael Jackson
    The Macarena – Los del Rio
    Bunny Hop
    Hokey Pokey
    Vogue – Madonna
    YMCA – Village People
    Conga – Miami Sound Machine
    Humpty Dance – Digital Underground
    Achy Breaky Heart – Billy Ray Cyrus
    Da Butt – E.U.
    Can’t Touch This – MC Hammer (just for Tony)

    Looking forward to seeing the final list.

    • My mind went straight to the reception. LOL

      As far as romantic songs go, after Faithfully the song that comes to mind for Dex and Sloane is Just The Way You Are by Billy Joel

  13. Make You Feel My Love by Adele

  14. I would like to suggest “The Power of Love” by Jennifer Rush. This is the original version from the 1980’s. This is the ultimate wedding song, in my humble opinion. Whatever songs you choose will be great.

  15. Sloane have a little surprise for his husband. He has been secretly meeting a songcoach and he gives Dex a lovely version of Mirrors by Justin Timberlake. Ash, Cael, Calvin and Seb are doing Whatever you want by Status Quo. Letty, Rosa and Nina are doing Despacito by L. Fonzi and then the biggest surprise to the newly weds are Tony and Sparks doing My Way .

  16. Amazed~ lone star
    Stand by me
    God gave me you

  17. Okay, one more. Larry Graham’s One in a Million You.

  18. Bryan Adams – Please Forgive me
    Elvis – Can’t Help Falling in Love
    Adele – One and Only
    Meghan Trainer – Dear Future Husband (for shits and giggles ^^)
    Jason Mraz – I’m Yours

  19. Glory of Love by Peter Cetera! (Karate Kid II)

  20. “I’ll Be There For You” by Bon Jovi. The song was supposedly my and my high-school love’s song, and I always liked the line, “These five words I swear to you; I’ll be there for you”. Sweet, and late 80s.

  21. Sade – The Sweetest Taboo

    The lyrics are so fitting. I think it would be awesome if this was one of Sloane’s “choices” for Dex. Maybe even with some surprise dance moves. :)

    I’d do anything for you, I’d stand out in the rain
    Anything you want me to do, don’t let it slip away
    There’s a quiet storm
    And it never felt like this before

    There’s a quiet storm
    I think it’s you
    There’s a quiet storm
    And I never felt this hot before
    Giving me something that’s taboo

    You give me the (you give me, you give me the) sweetest taboo
    That’s why I’m in love with you (with you)
    You give me, keep giving me the sweetest taboo
    Too good for me

    You’ve got the biggest heart
    Sometimes I think you’re just too good for me
    Every day is Christmas, and every night is New Year’s Eve
    Will you keep on loving me
    Will you keep on, will you keep on
    Bringing out the best in me

    • And Whitney Houston – You Give Good Love

      I can so imagine Cael making Ash and Cal making Hobbs slow dance to this one.
