Oliver and Sophie's Wedding Music

As Oliver's best man, I was responsible for assembling the music for Oliver and Sophie's wedding. Oliver's musical marching orders were:

Sophie really likes the Oh Brother soundtrack and old folk and German language folk and cabaret. I like that stuff and klezmer and crazy Balkan brass bands (e.g. the music from the movie “Underground”, the soundtrack for which I mail ordered from Europe) and traditional Romany and funk and Cuban and early-to-middle period Beatles (Rubber Soul, Magical Mystery Tour, Help, Hard Day’s Night).

Here is the playlist I came up with. I assembled the music in iTunes, using a combination of tracks from my own collection, from my father's collection, and from supplementary tracks purchased from the iTunes Music Store. Unfortunately the music didn't get quite the hearing it might have, a combination of a busy schedule of ceremonial "interruptions," and a weird problem with my iPod shuffle (it kept stopping every once and again). But I had fun assembling it, and I'll burn a couple of CDs for Oliver and Sophie.
