The male perspective on weddings.
My bride to be and I are currently discussing the music to have during our wedding and we are struggling. Why is it that nearly all of the music that I love, regardless of genre, seems to have themes of breakups, death and tragedy? I love music and I don’t want to have a clichéd song as our first dance, nor do I want to hear ‘Here comes the bride’ as she walks down the aisle. If I have to hear that, then it’ll be ‘There goes the groom’!
Preferably, I would like something in the indie rock/pop category, however much of the subject matter in this genre is very dark. Even very happy sounding songs often have very sinister undertones if you really listen to the lyrics. Too often have I heard of people picking songs that sound happy and romantic on the surface but actually are highly depressing songs at the core.
So maybe I have painted myself into a corner here, maybe I am over thinking it, but this is one of the few things which my bride has tasked me with and I don’t want to disappoint!
