Every Breath You Take by the Police. Sting said it is actually a dark/sinister song about stalking/obsession and he feels awkward when people tell him “that was our first dance”. 

 

ETA:

I woke up in the middle of the night with that line in my head, sat down at the piano and had written it in half an hour. The tune itself is generic, an aggregate of hundreds of others, but the words are interesting. It sounds like a comforting love song. I didn’t realize at the time how sinister it is. I think I was thinking of Big Brother, surveillance and control.

Sting later said he was disconcerted by how many people think the song is more positive than it is. He insists it’s about the obsession with a lost lover, the jealousy and surveillance that follows. “One couple told me ‘Oh we love that song; it was the main song played at our wedding!’ I thought, ‘Well, good luck.'”[5] When asked why he appears angry in the music video Sting told BBC Radio 2, “I think the song is very, very sinister and ugly and people have actually misinterpreted it as being a gentle, little love song.”[6]

@cantonbride:  I can never believe when people ACTUALLY choose that as a first dance song. Do people not listen to words? Its totally a stalker song.

Akon “I wanna F**k You”

I see you winding and grinding up on that pole, I know you see me lookin’ at you and you already know I wanna f**k you, you already know I wanna f**k you, you already know

This song would be totally inappropriate for the first day…hahaha

@YogaFaerie:  Haha, one of my college professors randomly went on a tangent about how that song should be banned from weddings since it is about stalking and a very unhealthy relationship. I actually like the song, but it will be #1 on our DO NOT PLAY list for the wedding!!
