1) Another One Bites The Dust – Queen

Not a good choice if you’re getting re-married…

2) My Heart Will Go On – Celine Dion

Seems like one you would want right? Wrong, A) Its has an incredibly sad tone and melody and B) its about a loved one dying… not ideal.

3) Gold Digger – Kanye West

Even if thats exactly what the bride is, you want to steer clear, regardless..

4) I Will Always Love You – Whitney Houston

One again, another sad toned song with an ending about death. Even the context of the movie it was in speaks to that..

5) Every Breath You Take – The Police

Another classic. Unless your band is a Police cover band, why would you want a song about constantly watching a borderline stalking a person. Obsession isn’t a good fit for a wedding.

Yes I know, these are classics. But if you actually take a step back and listen to the lyrics you’ll understand why to avoid them. I also don’t mean driving and subconsciously listening to them, I mean actually read the lyrics. You can also learn a lot from the key of the song as it sets the tone. Stay away from these old favorites in the future…
