Songs NOT To Choose For Your First Dance (and why)
► "Make You Feel My Love" - Adele
This song is about desperation, not necessarily true love.
► "Don’t Stop Believing" - Journey
Although this song makes for a fun sing-along at last call, it’s really the story of kids in a going-nowhere town.
► "I Will Always Love You" - Whitney Houston
Whitney, we’ll always love you, too, but this was actually written as a breakup song.
► "Better With The Lights Off" - New Boyz Ft. Chris Brown
Think about the one... Guys, your bride looks better with the lights off?
► "I Will Follow You Into The Dark" - Death Cab For Cutie
This one’s bound to get the waterworks going, but definitely not from happiness. Your wedding is the start of your new life together, not a time to be thinking about souls lost in limbo.
► "Just The Two Of Us" - Will Smith
Warning: This song is not actually about a couple—it's about a father and son. This one will have you thinking more about Dr. Evil and Mini Me’s sweet duet in Austin Powers and less about you and your soul mate.
► "Always On My Mind " - Elvis Presley
This song is trying to be sweet by saying that, even though you were a bum in the actual relationship, you were always thinking about the other person…
► "Beautiful Stranger " - Madonna
I would hope that you two aren’t strangers anymore…
► "Band Of Gold " - Freda Payne
Another one of those songs that actually sounds like it’ll be a nice ditty about marriage but is actually quite the opposite.
► "When I’m 64" - Beatles
Though many interpret this song as a sweet song about a couple’s lasting love, there is much debate about whether it was written sarcastically and is actually about deep boredom in the later years of life.
