25 Recommended Songs for a Video Slideshow Presentation

One of our most popular upgrades is the "Video Slideshow." A slideshow of 5-7 minutes long (recommended length) is projected onto a large screen, with the audio for the presentation run through our professional sound system.  To maximize the emotional impact of a slideshow, you will need to select the perfect accompanying music.  

Listed below are 25 suggestions for songs to be played during a video slideshow that will emotionally move the celebrant and guests - perhaps to tears.  In parentheses, we have listed what type of party the song would be best suited for.  Note that songs that typically are "over the top" for  general party music (think Celine Dion), are often excellent candidates for slideshows!  Please comment with your own song suggestions.
