I need song suggestions for 40th bday party slide show.

My sister's friends are throwing her a surprise 40th birthday party and have asked me to do a slideshow to play during the party. I have all of the pictures, but I'm trying to find some songs to play. The only one I can think of so far is "Isn't She Lovely" by Stevie Wonder.

Please give me some song suggestions.

The only song that came to my mind when I saw the title of the thread was "Hell's Bells." That's what was played when DH's best friend arrived at his 40th birthday surprise party.

If you're trying to be nice about it, how about "Forever Young" or "Through the Years?"

What kind of music does your sister like?

I'm sure the link won't work, but here is the soundtrack of her 20's. To me, my 20's soundtrack holds the best memories.

Yes, I'm trying to be nice. "Forever Young" is a good suggestion.

Can you think of any appropriate songs from the Disco era? She really likes disco music. I was thinking about "Brick House".

How about....

100 Years-Five for Fighting
Good Riddance/Time of Your Life-Green Day
Seasons of Love-Soundtrack from RENT
Now and Forever-Carole King
I'll be There for You-The Rembrandts

I'll keep thinking on it and post more if I think of any...

If you have pics of her in the summer or the family on vacation, you could always play "School's Out", but *not* the original version, use the one that the A*Teens did with Alice Cooper a few years back.

Forever Young is really good, but I'm thinking you might want to mix up the tempo and feel of the songs, have some upbeat stuff in the middle of the emotional things.

Trying to think of groups...The Police, Phil Collins (both Genesis & the Disney stuff), the Commodores (the concert/live version of "Brick House" is one of my faves), is there any Aerosmith/Boston that would work?

How about some movie/musical soundtracks - Grease, Saturday Night Fever

and "What a wonderful World"/Louis Armstrong
and I love that version of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" with ukeles & that great late Hawaiian singer, someone else upthread mentioned it...fabulous song I first heard on ER when Mark Greene died.

OH, here's an idea...how about some TV show themes, like Miami Vice or maybe some of the shows that your family would watch together?

agnes!
