Question by cviperml: What song to sing at a 50year wedding anniversary?
I need some song suggestions for 4-6 young women to sing during my grandparent's 50th wedding anniversary party. They wanted us to sing a song as their present from us. We're looking for something nice because they are from a different country and wouldn't understand a pop song. Thanks

    What country are they from? Any specific genre or music their into. I’m guessing their old (obviously), but were they into the 50’s-60’s music or earlier Swing or Jazz? I’ll edit if something else comes to mind if you answer these questions, but here are a few older songs to go with

    Righteous Brothers – Unchained Melody
    Righteous Brothers – (You’re My) Soul and Inspiration
    Peter Frampton – Baby I Love Your Way
    Bill Medley & Jennifer Warnes – I’ve Had The Time Of My Life
    Lionel Ritchie – Endless Love
    Ella Fitzgerald & Louis Armstrong – Can Anyone Explain

    Something simple. Try:

    Righteous Brothers – Unchained Melody
    Billie Holiday – My Man

    Otherwise maybe something in their native language? I’d go with something slow, sweet, and to the point!
