Music has an immense power – that of speaking to people even when there are no lyrics or when they are in a completely different language. Most of the times, music manages to send across the right message (for its target audience and for its intended purpose) – but sometimes, some songs are confusing in terms of what they want to tell.
What are some of the songs you might want to leave out of the wedding?
We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.
- The Weeknd, I Can’t Feel My Face. This might sound like a love song full of passion and poetry. But, in fact, it is a song about…using drugs. Sure, you may not know this straight ahead when you listen to it, but the meaning behind the lyrics has been admitted by the people behind the song themselves – so you might want to skip playing it at your wedding altogether.
- Los del Rio, Macarena. It’s one of the most popular line dances in history, so why would you skip it at your wedding? Well, as it turns out, this is one of the single most inappropriate songs to play on the Big Day, mostly because its lyrics talk about…cheating. And they don’t even do it on a sad note, filled with regret! Truly, this must be one of the most misleading songs in the history of music!
- Whitney Houston, I Will Always Love You. This song is quite misleading as well – especially since most people perceive it as a love song. That’s not very far from reality, actually – the “small” detail that makes the difference is, however, that this song talks about breakup. No matter how beautiful Whitney’s voice may be and no matter how soothing the song itself is, its nature is just not suitable for a wedding – even less for the first dance!
- Black Eyed Peas, My Humps. This might be a great throwback to the beginning of the 2000s and it might be a really good party starter – but the message of the song is quite inappropriate for a wedding, especially if kids are invited too (and we’re pretty certain your grandma won’t love the lyrics either).
