Hello Wollies, Have you seen the Wedding Singer? If so, do you remember the song he sings to Drew Barrymore on the plane? Have you ever heard this song done as the first dance at a wedding? You see, I think the words in this song sum up me and the H2B pretty well, all the craic about giving her her medication when she's 80 and wobbly...and the whole best friends vibe. But am worried it would come accross a bit daft as a first song, so if anyone has heard it used at a wedding I would love to hear if it worked out well or fell flat on it's face. Thanks a million for anyone who answers!

It's neither cheesy nor it is classy, per se. It's kinda sweet, a little left of centre and a wee bit cheesy (like a baby bel). If it's appropriate for you as a couple, then I say go for it!

Friends of ours did that at their wedding, he mimed the song to her while she sat on a chair. Most of us 'got' it, however the older crowd just didn't :o0 We thought it was quite sweet and we were all singing along.

It is cute....go for it! I love anything different. Myself and my husband toyed with this as a party piece for the session after our wedding. We didn't work on it enough though! It's from The Jerk...I love that movie! http://ie.youtube.com/watch?v=_Y7v8dLSdzw

Ooh, I quite like the party piece idea. H2b plays guitar and I'd it's go down well in the resident's bar... I thought you meant rapper's delight! Great first dance song...
