I was setting up the playlist for my wedding ceremony when I realized that I didn't have an important song- the one for the Bridal Party to walk down the aisle to, "Ribbon In The Sky" by Stevie Wonder. I tried to look it up on iTunes and for some incredibly bizarre reason I couldn't log into my iTunes account. After a couple of attempts and using different passwords as well the Forgot Password option, nothing was working. Since I was in a bit of a time crunch, I turned to Google. The first thing that came up that looked trustworthy was Amazon MP3.
I clicked on the link, opened up the page to see the MP3 of "Ribbon In The Sky" for the same price as iTunes, 99 cents. I went through the motions to purchase it and downloaded it to my computer. I double checked that it downloaded and added it to my iTunes library and then, to my ceremony playlist. After I was done creating the playlist, I double checked everything and all was well.
The morning of my wedding came and my talented DJ friend who was going to be working my iPod for the ceremony came to my room to pick it up. I was going through the playlist with her when I couldn't find "Ribbon In The Sky". Hmmm...that's strange, I thought I synced my playlist with my iPod, guess not. Easy enough to fix since I had intelligently brought my laptop. I connected my iPod and synced it up. It synced but, alas, no "Ribbon In The Sky". Getting frustrated, I looked at my library and I couldn't find it. A little agitated, I looked into my download folder on my computer, it wasn't there. Holding back my Bridezilla, I looked everywhere for it and couldn't find it. My friend called the other DJ who said he had it on his iPod.
Thankfully, I knew how to solve this issue. I told my friend that she would need to switch iPods halfway, she would need to play the intro music mix I had on my iPod, unplug mine, add the other DJ's to play "Ribbon In The Sky" for the Bridal Party to walk down to, then, plug mine back in to play "At Last" for me to walk down the aisle to with my father and then, the song where we walk back up will be there, ready to go. The timing would work out just fine.
If I wasn't a DJ or we hadn't thought to ask the other DJ if he had it on his and figured out how to time the switching of iPods, I would've been without the song I wanted for my Bridal Party to walk down the aisle. Yes, I would've been able to find a replacement but, why should I have to since I had purchased the song from Amazon?
I contacted Amazon as soon as I got back from my wedding. They asked if I was sure I had looked everywhere and treated me like a moron, asking me, "Are you SURE you looked in your downloads?" "Are you SURE that you looked in your library? Maybe it's your iTunes...." I explained that I was sure and told them that I'd like a refund. What do you know? Suddenly, they figured out it was a glitch on their end and that they would get it to me ASAP and they were soooo sorry. I still asked for a refund and haven't seen a dime or a dollar, I should say. But, at least I have my Stevie...and this is why I like spinning vinyl LOL!
