Kicking off April the right way, with a Ska wedding music & playlist guest post from Maggie Winters Photography, or as Maggie calls it, a “Skawesome Playlist”.
Not only is ska the best music of all time (I’m only a little opinionated here), it’s great for inducing happiness and awesome wacky dancing. Let’s face it: skanking would make epic wedding photos. Epic.
People of all ages love ska–your grandparents will totally skank with you. If they do, please please send photos.
Starting with some lovey dovey songs, pretty, happy–some craziness and goofy ones in the middle–and an epic end (SB6 hell yes!). Enjoy!
Check out this awesome ska wedding playlist & then click inside for a copy of the songs via Grooveshark!
Thrill Me Up // The Toasters
The loviest of love songs. Buck has a romantic-y voice. First dance song?!
Moment // The Pietasters
I don’t know why this isn’t the #1 love song of all time. It’s hard to write about ska because it so amazingly beautifully happy and awesome and writing does not include a horns section. If the first one wasn’t your first dance, this one totally is.
Special Brew // Bad Manners
Beer, love, trumpets, ya know. The live version.
Truly Madly Deeply // The Dualers
The Dualers are this awesome little ska/reggae band over in music paradise (London) who play on the streets all the time. Their cover of this song is amazing. So much love!

Stuff // MU330
“I’m just so tired of romance
I just want to get in your pants
I just want to feel on your stuff”
Every playlist needs some goofy. Enough said.
Till The End of Time // The Scofflaws
“Don’t you know I’m the only one who really loves you, you big dummy!
The Way You Do The Things You Do // UB40
(Dawning of a) New Era // The Specials
…just like a wedding right?!
Dig That Groove Baby // The Toy Dolls
Let all that married giddiness out!
All In // Sonic Boom Six feat. Coolie Ranx
End with epic awesome.
If you’re not grinning after listening to this set you’re probably dead. PICKITUP!
