So Future Mother-In-Law and FFIl went to the church thing last night to listen to the music while I laid in bed and prayed for the nyquil to kick in and take me to dream land.
Today I got the update.
It turns out that if I want anything but this utterly traditional (talking Here Comes The Bride, Cannon in D) set of options they have I’m going to have to hope that the word in the song that I want arn’t taken in the wrong way….
Say I wanted the song "I Swear" (which I don’t….) I would have to change the name of it in the program to "I Promise" as the word Swear can make the older generation thing of swearing – as in cussing.
Okay, really? Ilike I get the concept but isn’t that just a step too far towards the looney line? I giggled out loud at this.
It’s not really a porblem at all, other then I have to pick apart my music I choose and hope nothing is taken in the wrong way but – this cracked me up – especially for being Luterean Church!
I suppose being a Beatles Fan I shoulnd’t pick Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds….lol. Though that one might very well go right over their head…hehehehehe.

Sheesh. Makes me think of a news story I saw once about some small town that had passed a law that all city offices had to answer the phone with "Heaven-o" because "Hello" has "hell" in it. Seriously.

Are you kidding me!? If this world spent half it’s time fixing big issues as it does the little stupid things….think of how wonderful it would be LOL.
EVery time I curse now, I’m going to call it "Promising" hahahehehehe!

Maybe you just call the songs Processional and Interlude and Recessional in the program and then let everyone figure out what the song is when it starts playing…
I was listening to clips of instrumental music on iTunes last night (found the most lovely piano and strings arrangement of Here Comes the Sun as I was thinking of your previous post and wondering what it would sound like on the organ) and found a whole set of stuff where the actual song titles are very noncommittal like that but once I started listening I was like – hey I know that song!
Along the same lines – can you call it an organ if we are really worried about words giving people the wrong mental pictures?!!
