Hit me with your Top 5 songs NOT to play at a wedding!

I'll start:

1.  "Maybe This Time"  (for those who don't know the words,  "maybe this time, I'll be lucky, may this time he'll stay.."

2.  It Shoulda been Me!

3.  Two out of 3 ain't bad

4.  On my own

We went to a wedding a couple of years ago and for the bridal "waltz" they had that Dido song "I will go down with this ship, I will put my hand up and surrender..." (Can't think of the song title) ...all I can say is if you are referring to your marriage as a sinking ship at your wedding, well, then, not off to a good start. And yes, they are now divorced ....

Hit me baby (one more time)
Oops, I did it again

Actually, anything by Brittany.  

...although I would recommend avoiding Brittany any time, not just at weddings.  wink.gif

It's actually, I WILL go down with this ship, I WONT put my hands up and surrender, there will be no white flag above my door, I'm in love and always will be.

It's a beautiful song - suggesting that you will never give up on love.

eta - it is WILL go down with this ship as in I am with you til the end.

It is a nice song...I just can't get past the sinking ship metaphor .....

"Achey Breaky Heart" - and yes, it's been done!

Not sure if it's the song or the mullet I object to though, now I think about it.  unsure.gif

#19 FeralBob!

Posted 29 October 2012 - 06:57 PM

Lucretia, I have no fecking idea roll2.gif My main thought in suggesting that would be that in any wedding party there would inevitably be at least one sleazy uncle/friend/whatever doing a Beavis & Butthead "heh, heh, whatdya think it is that he won't do, heh, heh" laughing2.gif

I awkwardly chose Barbie Girl by AQUA and dedicated it to the flower girl (my cousins daughter) thinking she would love to dance to it. Little did I know the lyrics are complete filth and not remotely child appropriate.

#21 somila

I Will Always Love You.

Edited to add capitals.  It looked weird as a sentence!

My husband Dj'd at a wedding that had 'It Must have been Love' by Roxette as the first dance..

Anything by Michael Bolton.

#23 RainRain

Posted 29 October 2012 - 07:01 PM

Pussycat Dolls - Don't Cha....that's one the bridesmaids should not go and dance to...lol.

I believe Meatloaf was saying he wouldn't end up "screwing around"....

#24 FeralRebelWClaws

Posted 29 October 2012 - 07:02 PM

heheh DFs and my "song" is Not Fair by Lily Allen... not really appropriate wedding music!

Actually I really wanted Halo by Beyonce and when you read the lyrics they aren't inappropriate, but everyone thinks it's a sad song.

#25 FeralRebelWClaws

Posted 29 October 2012 - 07:03 PM

My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard? hehehehe

DF won't let me have Jimmy Soul's If you wanna be happy. He said it implies that I am ugly. On the plus side he thinks I'll make him happy for the rest of his life heheheh
