1. I'm Sticking With You, Velvet Underground (our wedding song!)
2. A Fine Romance, Ella Fitzgerald/Louis Armstrong (fun!)
3. Don't You Want Me, Human League (great duet, synthpop heaven!)
4. Tainted Love, Soft Cell (it's depressing, but you can dance to it!)
5. Ball and Chain, Etta James (she's the greatest!)

7. I'm Putting All My Eggs in One Basket, Fred Astaire/Ginger Rogers (Irving Berlin classic)
