[Powderworks] my "Oils music at a wedding" story!

Funny to read this when just last night we finalized our list of Oils songs 
for our wedding on Nov.30th.
Bedz cleared the floor? Yikes; we are playing 17 Oily songs during the 
dance. Couldn't get the list any shorter.
Hope it doesn't have the same effect!
In the Valley (accoustic) is our first dance and the receiving line is pure 
soft Oil except for a couple of jolts that didn't
make the list of 17!

Take care:
Chris Hall
