Best music to buy

I know there are tons of cheesy royalty free music companies out there. I'm trying to see who's the best. Do you have any recomendations for the best audio music that you choose for your wedding videos? I need something dramatic and (preferably) with some vocals. Any ideas?

We used to buy a lot of needle drop music but in the past couple years have shifted to mostly loop-based music creation using Apple Garagem Band or more often Sonicfire. Sony's Acid has an incredible back catalog of loops in many styles, and so if you have any musical abuility at all, you can roll your own and get great results.
Digital Juice has a loop-based setup with a large catalog of tracks.
I am a huge fan of Sonicfire, the extra instsant variations and sub-types give you a lot to work with,a dn the supplied clips are great. if you havea fasst internet connection, you can access extra stuff as needed and quickly buy the added material you want a la carte, as easy as using iTunes. the trick to keeping it fresh is that you still need to keep updateing and buying more loops as they come out.
In terms of classic needle-drop music, I always like Music Bakery.
You might also try auditioning clips from sounddogs.
