Be sure you choose your wedding song wisely. Don’t taunt your wedding day memories with a song you thought was romantic but turned out to be quite the opposite upon second listen.
Every Breathe You Take – The Police
“Every move you make…and every vow you break”
Written by Sting during the collapse of his marriage, he is amazed how many people see it as a love song when really it is “very, very sinister and ugly”.
With Or Without You – U2
“Sleight of hand and twist of fate …On a bed of nails she makes me wait”
Bono’s lyrics portray the struggle of a man to manage career and family, and how the two are at odds with each other.
I Will Always Love You – Whitney Houston
“So I’ll go yet I know, I’ll think of you every step of the way”
Dolly Parton wrote it, but Whitney Houston got the chart success with her version from The Bodyguard. This song is a bittersweet ode to an ex-lover, Parton actually penned it while splitting with her business partner.
Angel – Sarah McLachlan
“In the arms of the angel..may you find some comfort here”
Angel in the Sarah McLachlan song is a reference to drugs as she sings the plight of an addict. McLachlan credits the song as dedicated to Smashing Pumpkins keyboard player, Jonathan Melvoin who died of an overdose.
My Heart Will Go On – Celine Dion
“and you’re here in my heart and my heart will go on and on”
From Titanic – Jack dies. Enough Said.
She Will Be Loved – Maroon 5
“he was always there to help her, she always belonged to someone else”
A best friend who is trapped watching the girl he loves end up in bad relationship after bad relationship. Unrequited yet beautiful but not really a love song.
You’re Beautiful – James Blunt
“And I don’t know what to do,’Cause I’ll never be with you.”
Blunt explained to Oprah that the song was “kind of miserable. It was about seeing my ex-girlfriend on the Underground in London with her new man, who I didn’t know existed.”
