Feist makes two appearances on Nelson's Dustin Stashko's playlist as he prepares for his best friend's wedding.

Nelson’s Dustin Stashko shares a playlist fit for marital bliss

As Nelson's Dustin Stashko prepares for his best friend's wedding he shares a few songs that will make the event even more memorable.

I’m going to be honest with you because we’ve built this relationship on a foundation of trust and honesty – I’m a hopeless romantic. I watch romantic comedies (rom-coms). I listen to girls while I’m in a relationship. Hell, I write in a journal what the barometric pressure was the day I meet a girl, because just MAYBE she’ll ask me about it when we’re old and sitting on the porch together watching our spoiled grandchildren play on their hoverboards that cost an exuberant amount of money, but we bought them anyways, because you know what? They’re worth it. That being said, I love to be bitter about weddings and marriage. I can still be a hopeless romantic and hate marriage right? Whatever, don’t judge me. This will ruin our relationship that was blossoming. Anyways, when my best friend told me he was getting married, he asked if I could pick some songs out to play at the reception. So here we go:

Wilco Ft. Feist – You and I: This makes for a romantic pairing. Bridesmaids are going to go crazy when this plays. Does that actually happen? If I’ve learned anything from the movies then the answer is: YES.

The Postal Service – Brand New Colony: A bit more modern. Ben Gibbard (of Death Cab For Cutie) is as hopeless as myself. His lyrics could make any girl fall in love him. I’ll be the phonograph that plays your favourite albums back as you’re laying there, drifting off to sleep. – Did you hear that? Hearts are breaking everywhere.

The Troggs – With A Girl Like You: A bit old school. Lyrics are obvious, but perfect. “I want to spend my life with a girl like you…”

The Beatles – Here, There and Everywhere: Can’t have a wedding without The Beatles. From Rubber Soul this shows off the fantastic harmonies of the band, and their penchant to write timeless, beautiful melodies. – Lame I know. Just listen.

The Constantines Ft. Feist – Islands in The Stream: I know, I know… It’s a mix tape faux pas to put two of the same artists on the same mix. But this is one of the greatest covers of all time, and makes the original with Dolly Parton seem like a joke.

Jackie Wilson- Higher and Higher: Alright, let’s bring it up a bit here. I once danced with a 90-year old to this song at a wedding. She tore it up.

The Morning Benders – Excuses: Just YouTube this song right now. It’s my favourite and I can honestly say, the most romantic song I’ve ever heard in my life. No joke. There are no other words.
