I 'm getting married on the 27th August and we where talking about a song to be played as we come out after the service. i said i wanted Another One Bites The Dust. which i think would be really funny and give everyone a laugh. but my partner thinks otherwise


what do you think?

I think your partner is right.

If you want something a little more upbeat, how about Breakthru? It seems a bit more appropriate, lyrics-wise.

Surely the most appropriate song lyric-wise would be You're my best friend or something. I mean, perfect "I love you, You love me, We're so happy" sort of thing.
One question, though, Farlander, exactly how would Breakthru's lyrics be appropriate, seeing as it's all about unrequited love - hardly the sort of feelings associated with a wedding, unless you're the best man or something.
I do like the Another one bites the dust thing too, though, but it could just be my twisted snse of humour

I think if you read the lyrics and think of a wedding, they can take on a different meaning. Obviously not the intent of the lyrics, but I think it does the job. Plus, I was just thinking about the video where they all burst through the tunnel and likening that to going out after the service.

Really, though, this doesn't seem like the appropriate time for a Queen song anyway, so whatever. Personally, I'd save Queen for the reception.

Another One Bites the Dust wouldn't be appropriate :D

I'm just 14, so I'm not thinkin' about that :D

Parents weddin' song was 'You're The Inspiration' by Chicago.

how about These Are The Days Of Our Lives?

for my wedding I'm going to exit to '39 and for my first dance with my wife I'm going to have White Queen (As It Began)- Live at the Rainbow, 20/11/1974.

Hi, I´m from Argentina and I want to say that I used "I was born to love you" (Made in Heaven version) for my wedding in 2001. Everyone loved that, even the people who doesn´t know Queen.

Sorry for mi english!!

Love Of My Life would not be a very good song because it talks about how he was hurt by this person and it doesn't sound like wedding material...hmmmm... a good song WOULD have to be I Was Born To Love You because it is upbeat for the most part and it is about finding the one for you. It's perfect to me...I would use it at my wedding!!

Congrats by the way!! My wishes are out to you and your future together!!

First of all,congratulations.
To be honest,I don't think that this is appropriate but it would be really funny.Now,if you want a Queen song for your wedding I suggest:
1.Don't stop me now-you can dance it with your partner,or even
2.Crazy little thing called love-it can be danced too.
I hope I helped you a little :)




It's a long hard struggle

But you can always depend on me

And if you're ever in trouble

You know where I will be

I would go with I Was Born To Love You, or maybe just for fun, the Rocks retake of I Can't Live With You.

We used "The Wedding March" and then added "It's A Kind Of Magic" which is very suitable for such a magical event....we also had lot's of Queen songs at the reception....including some rockers...I remember my parents Waltzing to Hammer to Fall....our wedding video had pretty much a Queen soundtrack as well including Somebody To Love for moments leading up to the event...

Stop talking bollocks people!! there's only one real choice.. and that is of course ONE YEAR OF LOVE!! who know's how long theyre gonna be together, but at least a year is better than a life time alone (of love nor marriage) =D

Yes consider that!!!

I insisted on it being played at our wedding almost 15 years ago. As much as I love AOBTD, it is not a good dance song and is too slow. My wife and I were the only ones on the dance floor, and after a minute or two, the song was too slow and dull to dance to. I was relieved when AOBTD was finally over.


Roger: I like it. If you don't. Sod you!

love of my life actually wouldnt work that well, because its speaking of the love of his life leaving him and breaking his heart, so i dont think it would be appropriate


But in the lyrics, it also talks about ''when you grow older, I will be there by your side to remind you that...I'll still love you...''

Nah. It starts off terribly for a wedding song "you've hurt me, you've broken my heart and now you leave me."
I quite like your AOBTD idea but what about Crazy Little Thing Called Love or Funny How Love Is? or You and I, or Millionaire Waltz.
There are a lot to choose from actually...for my wedding I intend to get my friend to play the Wedding March on his Red Special. That would be awesome.
And, actually, now that I think about it I reckon I'll have Flashdance. I know it's not Queen but the lyrics seem appropriate and it would be really fun...
