Pianist Keys In On Inappropriate Wedding Songs

NEW PRAGUE, Minn. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Wedding season is almost here and if you want your impending nuptials to be in tune with reality, be careful about which songs are played at the ceremony.

That’s the key advice from pianist Tim O’Neill, who says some seemingly romantic songs just shouldn’t be played at a wedding, such as the Whitney Houston chartbuster, “I Will Always Love You.”

It sounds like a love song, but O’Neill says the opening line, If I should stay/ I’ll only be in your way, is inappropriate to start a marriage.

O’Neill also has the sinking suspicion that “My Heart Will Go On” from Titanic is a better fit at a funeral while “Every Breath You Take” is more of a stalker song than a wedding tune.

Another surprisingly-popular-but-inappropriate wedding song is “Send In The Clowns.” O’Neill admits it has a beautiful melody but inspires lots of crowd murmurs, especially if it’s played while the mother-in-law is being seated.

O’Neill and his piano-playing brother, Ryan, have just released their own wedding album, A Day To Remember.
