Upbeat Recessional
I have been just having the hardest time trying to find a recessional song that’s upbeat. I found two that I like what do you all think? I’m looking for some R&B, something about love.
Any suggestions?

My friend and colleague John, from www.ariamelody.com and my friend Steve from www.thesoundchoicemusic.com both have great playlists for every part of the ceremony. Indie bride is also a good source.

We're seeing a lot of Beatles lately; All you Need is Love. The ever popular, "We are Family", Somewhere over the rainbow" (Uke version), I even had one couple use "Follow the Yellow Brick Road" and another used the theme from Pirates of the Caribbean......

You'll find one !

I've been told ours isn't "upbeat" enough but we like it and it means something to us. I think in the grand scheme of things that's all that matters.

This is ours

Interesting James to Be. FH chose this song as our recessional as well

FYI: I love song #1. FH and I are definitely going to dance to that song as well.

FMC, FH chose "Cool" as our first dance.

R&B, do you like some upbeat blues? Something's Got A Hold on Me is nice and upbeat. Etta James version if you start it at about 30 seconds in has good spirit lifting. "Feeling good" is also a nice one, usually to get the more upbeat part you cut in around 40-50 seconds.

If you want some funk, James Brown's "I Feel Good" is definitely upbeat. More modern, Joss Stone's "Super Duper Love".

Marvin Gaye's "Aint no mountain high enough" is a classic.

FH hated that movie as well. But for some unknown reason, he only remembers one song from the entire movie.

Ours is "Best of My Love" by the Emotions. Upbeat, words say us and it's from our era of music

Might make it our entrance song though still not sure.

I was thinking of using Usher's new song "Scream" still undecided. We are doing a "country" theme, so I was hoping to find a country song, but I cant find one! I like all music, so im not saying country is all that will be played, def not, but i was hoping to stick to the theme on the important stuff. But I like this song!

my other close favorite was this:
Lupe Fiasco - The Show Goes On

For a contemporary version of the traditional Mendelssohn wedding recessional, this is very nice - lots of fun, but not over the top for the guests who might typically prefer the traditional.
