Oh, and if you missed it live on Friday, listen back to our sister station WPLN’s daily show This is Nashville for their episode on Nashville’s wedding culture.


LCD Soundsystem – “Dance Yrself Clean” – Logan said this is the ultimate wedding reception dance floor “litmus test.” Who’s got the chops? Well, besides these muppets:

#ThematicStatic Playlist

Frank Sinatra – “Love and Marriage” – Rex asked for this perfect show-starter from the Chairman of the Board himself.

Kiwi Jr. – “Nashville Wedding” – How apropos!

The 5th Dimension – “Wedding Bell Blues” – Classic, putting Bill on blast for his cold feet: “Am I ever going to see my wedding day?”

Alvvays – “Archie, Marry Me?” – Don’t forget this band’s new album Blue Rev is out now and they’re playing Marathon Music Works on November 8, a great Canadian indie rock reward for YOUR participation in American democracy!

Nina Simone – “Feeling Good” – Avid listener and #ThematicStatic requester Jude walked down the aisle to this one, and then she and husband Steve had their first dance to…

Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit – “If We Were Vampires” – Requested by and dedicated to Leslie, who will wed Heath on November 12!!!

Al Green – “Love and Happiness” – Another upcoming knot-tying is that of Taylor and Hunter, and Taylor asked for this one by the Rev.
