I forgot to write about this in the post about my brother’s wedding. Oh well, I felt this thing neded its own post anyway. Warning! I’m probably about to sound like a very old woman.
When the dancing started, all the songs were pretty good. After their first dance, they played the song that was my sister’s first dance at her wedding…I’m not sure if that was intentional or coincidental, but it was kind of cool. A few other nice songs were played…and then this attrocity came on.
I call it an attrocity, but only for the lyrics. The damn tune is so catchy that whenever I think about it, I sing it for days…which just perpetuates the vicious circle of grrr.
I know, it says “I think I wanna marry you,” but the rest of the song seems like the absolute worst song to play at a wedding.
“It’s a beautiful night, we’re lookin’ for something dumb to do.
Oh baby, I think I wanna marry you.”
“Who cares if we’re trashed, got a pocket full of cash we can blow, …”
I could pick this thing apart line by line if I wanted to, but I won’t. You get the picture.
This song bugged me already, and I know that makes me sound old or something, but am I the only one? Could the DJ have waited to play that one until a little later on? I mean, they already jam in songs like “Paradise by the Dashboard Light” by Meatloaf at weddings, which also bothered me, but it’s a popular song so it gets played. This song was played in those few where the dances might count for something.
Eek I sound like my dad, telling people how to do their jobs. Maybe I should shut up. I guess this song bugs me anyway…so hearing it so early just sort of bugged me a little more.
