It’s officially weddings season! June is a busy month for wedding ceremonies, and this morning, we’re helping out all those soon to be newlyweds by making a list of songs that should never, EVER be played at a wedding.
We enlisted K-EARTH 101 listeners to call in and give us their picks of inappropriate weddings songs. Plus, everyone who calls in will be qualified to win a pair of tickets to see AC/DC and The Who, as well as a Father’s Day prize pack that includes those concert tickets, a new tablet and a $200 Baja Fresh gift card!
Take a look at some of the choices our listeners helped come up with this morning.
1. “50 Ways To Leave Your Lover” by Paul Simon. A No.1 hit, sure, but you probably don’t want to give your significant other any ideas.
2. “D-I-V-O-R-C-E” by Tammy Wynette. For obvious reasons…
3. “Every Breath You Take” by The Police. This is one of the most misunderstood songs in music. Don’t let the beautiful melody distract you, the song is about a stalker.
4. “Jumper” by Third Eye Blind. THIS SONG IS ABOUT A MAN JUMPING OFF A BUILDING. Not exactly something you want to put in your hubby’s head.
5. “Tubthumping” by Chumbawamba. This song isn’t appropriate anywhere.
6. “If You Leave” by OMD. Desperation isn’t a good look on anyone.
7. “What’s Love Got To Do With It?” by Tina Turner. Shouldn’t love have everything to do with it on your wedding day?
8. “You Give Love a Bad Name” by Bon Jovi. The opening lines say it all – “shot through the heart/and you’re to blame/darlin’ you give love a bad name.”
9. “If You Leave Me Now” by Chicago. Not so great for that first dance.
10. “Another One Bites the Dust” by Queen. This would be more appropriate for a divorce party than celebrating a wedding.
