September was a busy time for Popped String.  In the Southern Hemisphere, everyone’s getting ready for beautiful spring weddings. Up in the Northern Hemisphere, it’s time for elegant autumn weddings. And of course, everyone has different ideas for the best, most personal music for their ceremony.

For string quartet, we arranged a pair of newer heavy metal songs that take on a baroque quality when played by strings: “Toxicity” by System of a Down” and “Vermilion Pt. 2” by Slipknot. Also, “Love Is All Around” by the Troggs and made popular again by Wet Wet Wet for the movie Four Weddings and a Funeral. Also, “Love” by John Lennon, “So in Love with You” by Texas, “The Blower’s Daughter” by Damien Rice, and “If I Had $1,000,000” by Barenaked Ladies.

For string trio, we got the chance to take our version of “Just Like Heaven” by The Cure and turn it into a romantic waltz. We also arranged “Today Was a Fairytale” by Taylor Swift, “Bless the Broken Road” by Rascal Flatts, and the string-heavy pop classic “Bittersweet Symphony” by The Verve.

We also adapted some of our string trio arrangements for string quartet: “Falling Slowly” by Glen Hansard from the movie Once, “Can’t Help Falling in Love” by Elvis Presley, Popped String favorite “Raiders March” by John Williams from the movie Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark,  and “Just Like Heaven” by The Cure (not a waltz version).

We’re still working on new requests through October, but email anytime with your requests!
