A Quiz!

HOORAY ! It is wedding season once again. There is just something about this magical time of year that knocks young couples' musical tastes all out of whack. What is about an engagement that evokes the desire to hear your musical friends perform horrible, horrible musical selections?

I have put together a little quiz. Below is a list of questionable love songs (some definitely being worse than others). Just for fun, take a guess at which songs I have actually been asked to sing at weddings.

-1- I Do (Cherish You) by 98 Degrees
-2- Love of a Lifetime by Fire House
-3- I Don’t Wanna Miss a Thing by Aerosmith
-4- Because You Loved Me by Celine Dion
-5- Groovy Kind of Love by Phil Collins
-6- My Valentine by Martina McBride
-7- Endless Love by Lionel Ritchie and Diana Ross
-8- Heaven by Brian Adams
-9- Longer by Dan Fogelberg
-10- From this Moment by Shania Twain
-11- Con Te Partiro by Andrea Bocelli
-12- Hero by Enrique Iglesias
-13- Thank You by Dido

Oh . . . I was also asked to sing #13 as well.

My apologies to all friends / family I have undoubtely insulted with this post.

Huh... I thought #13 was one of the less awful ones there.

On the bright side -- no Celine Dion so far?

Reluctant Kerry said...

Ok, 13 is not terrible, just seems a little less reverent than one might like for church ceremony.

AGREED on the Dion bullet I have managed to dodge.

Groovy Kind of Love? Seriously? Wow. That's just... wow.

Reluctant Kerry said...

My point exactly. I took a pass on that one, by the way, and suggested something less . . . offensive.

You can add one more to your list:

Every Breath you Take by the Police.

I was asked to sing this at a wedding. I refused based on the fact that the person asking me must have not only ate paint chips as a child, but must have also drank gasoline and lived under power lines. Nobody pays attention to lyrics anymore.
