Wedding Crashers

One of the BJS Family is tying the Knot.  Getting hitched.  Married.

Planning a wedding involves a lot of decision-making. After all, not only is it the bride and groom’s special day, but it also involves being special in front of as many people as they can afford to feed. Sometimes, between deciding on the cummerbund color, the bachelor-party policy and the cake decor, the music styling can get lost.

Apparently, there’s no shortage of people who make misguided choices for wedding processions, father-daughter dances, cake-cuttings and everything in between.  So with music being of paramount importance at this blog, here are some suggestions.      

Of what NOT to play….


-“Every Breath You Take” (The Police)

Depending on the size of the future apartment, either depressingly literal, or literally creepy.


-“Highway To Hell” (AC/DC)

This could give the wrong impression.


-“Dude Looks Like a Lady” (Aerosmith)

Not if you want the honeymoon to go well.  Unless You’re into that kind of thing….


-“Let’s Get it On” (Marvin Gaye)

The parents just wouldn’t like it….


-“Run for Your Life” (The Beatles)

If this wedding excluded all other male guests, he won’t need to worry about anyone cutting in.  (“Run for your life if you can little girl, Catch you with another man, that’s the end.  Little Girl”)


-“Muskrat Love” (Captain and Tennille)

“Muzzle to muzzle, now anything goes”.  It’s a great choice only if you are newlywed Furries .  Even then it’s still surprisingly hard to dance to.  Especially in a Furry outfit.


-“I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For” (U2)

Definitely not.


-“The End”  The Doors

Just a little morose for the occasion.


-“You Can’t Always Get What You Want”  (Rolling Stones)

Self explanatory.


-“Another One Bites the Dust” (Queen)

Well, the groomsmen would like it.


-“To All The Girls I’ve Loved Before”  (Willie Nelson & Julio Iglesias)

 no need to gloat at this point.


-“Love Stinks”  (J. Geils Band)

Might be true, but not good at a wedding….


-Anything by Alvin and the Chipmunks. Ever.


-“You’re Havin’ My Baby” (Paul Anka)

Unless it’s true.  Even then….


Have any other “inappropriate” songs for a wedding?  

He picked the wrong song.....

  2. I actually went to a wedding where the Groom sang Meatloaf’s Two Outta Three Ain’t Bad to the Bride…..

  3. “I knew the Bride (when she used to Rock and Roll)” by Dave Edmunds- A+ for awesomeness, but insinuates that the Groom is a dud. It also gets points for rarity, as it’s pretty much off the market because Chuck Berry sued because it is basically just a copy of “C’est la vie (Teenage Wedding)”.

    I played a wedding a couple of years ago and the bride requested we play “Lips of an Angel” by Hinder. It is all nice and sweet till you realize the singer is talking to his ex wishing he was still with her.

    Crazy Bitch by Buckcherry is probably not a good one either.
