@MissSooner: One of my friends recently got married and she posted on Facebook that that song is her and her husband’s “theme” song. I so wanted to post the lyrics for her… I mean… the song is kind of “overly attached girlfriend” cray cray.
I think it is easy to come up with songs that are obviously not appropriate, I mean, would anyone seriously ever consider dancing to “I Hate Everything About You” by Three Days Grace? Yeah, the lyrics “I love you” are there, but uh, the title kind of gives away the rest of the song.
“I hate everything about you
Why do I love you?”
The song that I think is completely inappropriate for a first dance, and one that I have actually heard is “Bleeding Love” by Leona Lewis.
“I don’t care what they say, I’m in love with you
They try to pull me away, but they don’t know the truth
My heart’s crippled by the vein that I keep on closing
You cut me open and I…
Keep bleeding, I keep keep bleeding love
I keep bleeding,I keep keep bleeding love
Keep bleeding, keep keep bleeding love
You cut me open.”
I mean, do you really want your first dance song to be about a relationship that people feel is bad for you? I get the “romantic gesture” of “I don’t care what they say, I’m in love with you”, but I just don’t think it is appropriate for a first dance.
(I totally love that song though!)
