LISTEN: 20 Songs to Celebrate Marriage Equality
At last! Today’s Supreme Court rulings give us reason to swoon, fall in love, sing, and dance!
The best wedding music makes everyone want to be in love — or feel like they have fallen in love all over again. But the best gay wedding music is sung by people who have known disappointment, have risen above, and let love save the day. So who better than queer musicians Dusty Springfield, Johnny Mathis, Levi Kreis, k.d. lang, and Kele Okereke of Bloc Party to sing for our celebrations?
Plus, songs like Etta James’s “At Last” and INXS’s “Never Tear Us Apart” take on a new resonance in a post-DOMA age — and if Shirley Bassey isn’t serving you all world-weary romance, just dripping with overwrought passion, then your speakers must be broken.
