    Hey, I am getting married in April and my fiancée and I just met with our DJ.
    He wants me to pick a song for the garter removal and toss at my reception and
    after looking at some of the suggested song titles, I thought I could use some help.
    Please don't say Legs-zz top, or Mission Impossible, while I am sure these are cool
    for that sort of thing I am looking for something a bit more original please.
    Thank you

    "Movin' on Up," aka "Theme from the Jeffersons".

    Saw this done at a wedding once; hilarious.

    Congrats!

    "you can leave your hat on" - Joe Cocker.

    A quick aside. If the families are easy going, try hiding a really racy thong/g-string in your sleeve to pull out and wave around instead of the garter. [​IMG]

    I'll have to think it over for a couple of days to come up with a recommendation. But I can tell you one thing for sure: Do not pick "Fat Bottom Girls" by Queen or the marraige will be over before it begins!

    Hey guys, thanks alot for all the suggestions so far.
    I am going to have to listen to the ones you all
    think might be good. I just wanted to add that I am willing
    to try something out of the ordinary also.
    It can be new, old or even funny.
    Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
    Oh and Ken, I must say that has to be one of the best tips I got so far. [​IMG]

    Thanks again.

    I'd suggest some burlesque-type stripping music. I can't be specific with titles or artists, though...

    In the early 60s there was an instrumental song called The Stripper by David Rose. It would be a very funny song to use. I'm not sure you can find a copy of this song, since it is 40 years old.

    The song in question can be found on the following CD that has quite a bit of classical burlesque music.

    If I think of any other good songs, I'll be sure to post them. I like the idea of "The Jeffersons" theme

    How about "Hey Big Spender" or "Cell Block Tango" from the Chicago soundtrack.

    Or you could always go with "I Like Big Butts" (don't know the name of the song)

    Luis, that would be "Baby Got Back" by Sir Mixalot. Or you could always go with "Put 'em on the Glass" too, I suppose.

    I'm so ashamed for knowing this...

    i've always felt that "fever" by peggy lee (?) fits that type of atmosphere. it's classy, but still seductive.

    "so alive" by love and rockets would be another song with a similar vibe...

    As someone who bartended for weddings for 3 years, I appreciate your attempt at originality. Of course over 3 years, anything would get old, but that "stripper" song or similar burlesque-type music just seems to so old and unoriginal to me. Too bad I didn't always pay attention to things like this, and can't remember anything specific I saw done that I liked. Oh wait...
    I saw this done once, but with a pair of old lady white granny-panties. Hilarious!

    It's your day, Howie, no reason you have to do things done like you've seen them done before. Make it special, unique.

    Edit...just thought of something...at one wedding I did, the bride and groom got married as the result of an unplanned pregnancy. this was a fairly well-known act to guests, as was explained to me later. So for the Father-daughter dance, the DJ played, unbeknownst to the bride (and I don't know the name or artist) the slow ballad that begins "Call me...irresponsible..." Hey, at least the family had a sense of humor about it.
