What song should never be played at a wedding?

Thought this could be a fun topic 🙂   I will start with You Give Love a Bad Name by Bon Jovi.

White Wedding - Billy Idol


His once girlfriend that he still loves is marrying someone else, yet this song still has been played at a lot of weddings. The song refers to shotgun, so possibly a shotgun wedding! That would make the term “white wedding” seem facetious or disingenuous. So no, not for weddings.

THE SIGN (Ace of Base)

I absolutely loved that song when it came out.. but the words are definitively not for a wedding: 

 

The Sign
I, I got a new life
You would hardly recognize me
I'm so glad
How could a person like me care for you?
Why, why do I bother
When you're not the one for me
Is enough enough?
I saw the sign

Still Loving You - Scorpions

 

This song was so popular when it was released, it was credited for creating a baby boom in France. That surprised Scorpions writer, Klaus Meine, who said it was really a breakup song. It’s about a guy pining away for his lost lover!
