Wedding Singer Soundtracks

Wedding Party | November 30 2010 | by Jenny | 0 Comments

Do you remember The Wedding Singer with Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore? It’s a 1998 romantic comedy movie directed by Frank Coraci. The famous Adam Sandler plays the role of Robbie Hart, a famous wedding singer in the 1980s and Drew Barrymore is Julia, a waitress at the events where Robbie performs his music. They are both engaged to be married to the wrong people until they fall in love with each other. It’s a story about finding love where you’re least expecting.

The movie had many scenes of singing at weddings that gave a special flavor to the movie and many people enjoyed it. When you say The Wedding Singer, your mind goes back to skinny ties and long hair. The Wedding Singer made a clear image about the importance of a professional wedding singer and about the everlasting oldies but goldies songs, before the Internet, the mobile phones and the roller blades. The soundtracks in the movie became very popular and many couples use them for their weddings.

Let’s get into the spirit of that decade. I made below a list of the famous soundtracks played by the wedding singer. These soundtracks have been subject to different CDs and compilation. Two of them called “The Wedding Singer” and “The Wedding Singer Volume 2“, were released in 1998.
