    Songs that you shouldn't play at weddings

    I am going to see comedian Tim Hawkins this weekend and he does this bit on inappropriate wedding songs.



    With that said what songs do my fellow cyburbians feel are inappropriate for weddings?

    The last song played at my wedding reception was "Brass Monkey". I'd warned the DJ not to take any requests from my cousins...
    I found you a new motto from a sign hanging on their wall…"Drink coffee: do stupid things faster and with more energy"

    If you want different results in your life, you need to do different things than you have done in the past. Change is that simple.

    I successfully got Prince's "P**** Control" played at a friend's wedding reception. Unedited.

    I'm a terrible person.

    "Oh, that is all well and good, but, voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country."

    - Herman Göring at the Nuremburg trials (thoughts on democracy)

    The wedding reception might be a little soon to play Squeeze Tempted by the Fruit of Another.
    He's a planner, he's a dreamer, he's a sordid little schemer,
    Seems to think that money grows on trees . . .

    Sometimes I wish I would have looked for an instrumental version of something like DJ Assault's Ass-n-Titties to play as the wedding party were entering the reception at my wedding just to see if anybody would have noticed.

    If we're going with AC/DC throw in Whole Lotta Rosie and She's Got the Jack.

    Sorry that song is by Atlanta Rhythm Section not Average White Band. My bad.

    The obvious:
    “Love Bites” by Def Leppard
    “Love Stinks” by The J. Geils Band (they actually did this in The Wedding Singer)

    The not so obvious:
    “Every Breath You Take” by The Police (actually about a stalker)
    “I’ll Be There for You” and “Always” by Bon Jovi (the verses are actually about breakups)
    "Life's a journey, not a destination"
    -Steven Tyler

    How about any song with another girl's name in the title or verse. Especially if said girl was an ex (or crush) of the groom

    I don't think my (now ex) wife would have appreciated hearing ELO's Julie Don't Live Here

    Oh and this would apply to guy's names for bride's too.
