Let's Get Married

"Meet me at the altar in your white dress. We ain't getting no younger so we might as well do this."- Jagged Edge

I have a confession to make. While I am not the biggest fan of weddings, the one aspect that I have always cared about since I was little was the songs that were going to be played at my wedding. I am talking about from the walk down the aisle to the bouquet toss to the garter portion, I have probably picked songs for each of these rituals.

So of course when I attend weddings, I am engaged in some serious music analysis and I normally come up with one of two conclusions 1) the people aren't paying close attention to the lyrics or 2) the people do not have an expansive repertoire because I keep hearing the same songs at the weddings I go to.

For instance, the song in this blog. Don't get me wrong, I'll dance to it and it's my jam. However, the lyrics in the song pretty much point to a man marrying a woman because it's the one thing he hasn't done and he's getting older. Oh and by the way, you won't find another man who will tell you all this. 

So I have decided to take the month of June and share some wedding-related songs that have caught my attention. I may even focus on some I think have been played too much or I just think are ridiculous for weddings. Hopefully this will motivate me to post more than a few times this month.

  1. I too have been baffled about people using this song at their weddings. This song is the equivalent of last call/last chance for hookups at the bar.
