Hello and welcome to an extensive list of all things music related. Cue your inner Lane, grab your headphones, CDs, and door lock so that Mrs. Kim doesn't hear you listening to the devil's music, sneak away into your secret (but super cool) closet, and enjoy.
(if you'd like a complete playlist, check out my Spotify page).
La Casa by Graham Preskett & Mauricio Venegas
This song plays when Miss Patti is “teaching” (or thoroughly enjoying the men’s company) the twin couples how to dance to their wedding at the inn.
Man! I Feel Like a Woman! by Shania Twain
A song recorded by Canadian singer-songwriter Shania Twain taken from her third studio album, Come on Over. The song went to #23 in the U.S., but #4 on the country music charts, as well as #2 in Canada on the country music charts. The song earned Twain a Grammy Award for Best Female Country Vocal Performance. In the show, this is Jessica’s choice for wedding music. I’d personally love to know the reasoning behind Jessica’s choice in this song for a wedding. A bachelorette party, absolutely. But a wedding? To a man?
A Kiss to Build a Dream On by Louis Armstrong
Now this song, yes, I can see how it would make a good wedding song. It was composed by Bert Kalmar, Harry Ruby and Oscar Hammerstein II. In 1935, Kalmar and Ruby wrote a song called “Moonlight on the Meadow” for the Marx Brothers film A Night at the Opera (1935) but the song was not used. Hammerstein later adapted the lyrics to be “A Kiss to Build a Dream On” and it was recorded by Louis Armstrong in 1951.
We Are Family by Sister Sledge
Another great song selection for a wedding. Jessica, take notes honey. This song was recorded by American vocal group Sister Sledge. Composed by Bernard Edwards and Nile Rodgers, they both offered the song to Atlantic Records; although the record label initially declined, the track was released as a single from the album of the same name in April 1979 and began to gain club and radio play, eventually becoming the group's signature song. Congratulations, it’s now stuck in your head as well.
Here They Go by Sam Phillips
I struggled finding information on this song. But it plays at the end when Lorelai is sitting alone on the couch. That’s about all I know.
