I know I'm in the minority as I actually listen to song lyrics (really, Mom? You think Tennessee Waltz is a sweet song??), but I did find some of the songs played during a recent wedding reception I attended as a bit inappropriate.
Here are a couple that I remember being played:
"I knew the bride when she used to rock & roll", which is comes across as a sad story about how a fun woman has chosen a boring life giving up on fun and contains lines like:
Well, take a look at the bridegroom smilin' pleased as pie
Shakin' hands all around with a glassy look in his eye
He got a real good job and his shirt and tie is nice
But I remember a time when she never would have looked at him twice
And "Need you now" which is basically a drunk dialing song:
Another shot of whiskey, can't stop looking at the door.
Wishing you'd come sweeping in the way you did before.
And I wonder if I ever cross your mind?
For me it happens all the time.
Don't get me wrong. I actually like those songs, I just don't think that they're appropriate during a wedding reception.
