I would love to have Annies' Song played for our first dance. I have to clarify if the band could sing this song. What would you advise 1) that I have the band sing the song or 2) have the band play the original by John Denver on CD?

By the band, but really it doesn't make a difference. We've been at two weddings recently where they've played the song by CD and it was fab.. Our band are supposed to be great at singing 'our song' so that's the only reason we're picking them.... although I do change my mind about 10 times on EVERYTHING before I finally know what I want so this more than likely will change too... good luck

My friend had the CD there before Christmas. It just didn't sound great. I was at another and the band learnt the song and it was much better. There's a lot to be said about the original artist doing it, but for pure sound quality and the feeling of a room filled with music I'd go for the band.
