Inappropriate Wedding Songs


Recently I was asked by a client if i had any ideas for “inappropriate” songs to play at their wedding to try and amuse (horrify?) their guests. Apart from the obvious “cheese” (black lace, dj otzi, the gap band, psy, village people – you get the idea), there isn’t really much that is actually off limits for me. While personal preferences may stop me from playing the likes of Chris Brown (unless asked specifically for it by the Bride and Groom) then  the only thing really stopping me from playing something is its suitability for a dancefloor.

 

But I came up with a list anyway and thought I would share…

  • D-I-V-O-R-C-E – Tammy Wynette / Dolly Parton / etc
  • Caught Out There – Kelis (I HATE YOU SO MUCH RIGHT NOW!)
  • Love Will Tear Us Apart – Joy Division
  • A Quick One, While He’s Away – The Who
  • Easy Lover – Phil Collins
  • Grounds for Divorce – Elbow
  • I Am Trying To Break Your Heart – Wilco
  • Love Stinks – J. Geils Band
  • Love Hurts – Nazareth
  • smack my bitch up – Prodigy
  • You’re the one for me fatty – Morrisey (or pretty much any moz/smiths for that matter)
  • I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For – U2
  • F**k It (I Don’t Want You Back) – Eamon (or FURB for that matter)
  • Suspicious Minds – Elvis Presley
  • Don’t Marry Her F*** Me – Beautiful South
  • If You Leave Me Now – Chicago
  • I’m not in love – 10CC
  • I Hate Everything About You – Ugly Kid Joe
  • Too Drunk To F*** – Dead Kennedys
  • Please Release Me – Engelbert Humperdinck (or better yet, lesbian seagull!)
  • And I went to a wedding – Half Man Half Biscuit
  • Rape Me – Nirvana
  • almost anything by 2 live crew
  • 50 Ways to Leave Your Lover – Paul Simon
  • Good Riddance (time of your life) – green day

Although I played “Good Riddance” as an end of night song for a Bride who specifically requested it recently, and everybody loved it (as i do, its a great song!)

But if you ever fancy dropping in one or two completely inappropriate ones, that list should at least get you started 🙂
