    Default Slideshow music for 80th birthday

    I'm putting together a slideshow for my grandfather's 80th birthday and have ABSOLUTELY no idea what songs to use. Any ideas? Thoughts? Comments? I need help, y'all!

    What a great idea!

    I would include music from when he was born (1927?) and music that represents each decade that the pictures were taken in. So, break up the pictures into sections - the 1920's, 1930's, 1940's, etc... Maybe for wedding pictures include their "song".

    From the year he was born (and an extra one):

    1927 - Star Dust by Hoagy Carmichael
    1928 - Keep on the Sunny Side by The Carter Family


    A-TISKET A-TASKET by Ella Fitzgerald
    Somewhere Over the Rainbow by Judy Garland
    Three Little Fishies by Kay Kyser


    INDIAN SUMMER by Tommy Dorsey
    WHEN YOU WISH UPON A STAR by Glenn Miller
    G. I. Jive by Johnny Mercer (this is great if he was in the service)
    MAIRZY DOATS by Merry Macs
    Sentimental Journey by Doris Day (this would be great if you're only wanting one song)

    I found these and a WHOLE bunch more, here: http://ntl.matrix.com.br/pfilho/html/top1/

    Here are the top songs by decade (but they start with the 50's.)
