When in the process of choosing your all-important first dance song, it is important to look at the meaning behind that song. Case in point, "I Will Always Love You." I mean it's touching, isn't it? Sure, if you don't actually listen to the lyrics. "Bitter-sweet memories/ that's all I have, and all I'm taking with me/Good-bye, oh, please don't cry/'Cause we both know that I'm not what you need/but I will always love you" OUCH. Yeah, probably not a good idea for a wedding. Anyway, the BRIDES editors have some thoughts on Aisle Say about three popular U2 songs that actually make for terrible wedding music. You can check out their post here.
We especially agreed with their inclusion of "One," it's a fantastic song but probably not at all what you want playing during your first dance:
"One" (Achtung Baby) Why it seems so right: Lines like "We get to/Carry each other/Carry each other" Why it's just so wrong: Lines like "You ask me to enter/But then you make me crawl/And I can't be holding on to what you got/When all you got is hurt" Did you know?: Bono says "One" is about "having to live together rather than wanting to."
Um yeah, that could be awkward. Instead, how about "All I Want Is You"? Just keep in mind it's a bit tricky to dance to, but definitely more appropriate for this purpose.
