Happy Valentine’s Day

So I was looking for something else, and I happened across our wedding invitation. You know it’s love when she lets you get away with putting “RSVP or else” on the card.


Just in time for Valentine's Day...

  1. RSVP or else. I love it. But I see you had to make a concession and allow a bit of Will into the affair. Didn’t want to risk Joy Division’s Love Will Tear us Apart, eh? (Man, that song has had a lot of covers!)

    True story. At the wedding of my old girlfriend’s sister, she had the DJ play Carly Simon’s That’s The Way I’ve Always Heard it Should Be, which includes:

    You say that we can keep our love alive
    Babe, all I know is what I see
    The couples cling and claw
    And drown in love’s debris
    You say we’ll soar like two birds through the clouds
    But soon you’ll cage me on your shelf
    I’ll never learn to be just me first by myself

    Remember that one?

    I said to her, “Good heavens, why did you choose that?”

    “But I like that song!”

    Some people never listen to the lyrics.

  2. A friend of mine once wanted to dedicate Meat Loaf’s* “Two Out of Three Ain’t Bad” to his girlfriend:

    I want you
    I need you
    But–there ain’t no way I’m ever gonna love you
    Now don’t be sad
    ’cause two out of three ain’t bad

    When he mentioned it, I said, “Have you ever listened to the lyrics?”

    Then, of course, there was the wedding where someone (not the bride or groom, I don’t think) had the DJ play “Closer” by Nine Inch Nails. Woot. At least the grandparents had left by that point…


    * You just know this one’s gonna turn out bad, right?
