Dodgy first dance choice

Lin51Lin51 Posts: 3

Hi all, I’m looking for neutral advice- I’ve had problems with my in laws for years now as they don’t really accept me. This is ok, I‘ve learnt to not be upset so long as H2B sticks by me.

Problem is, throughout all of these problems we’ve adopted Buddy Holly by Weezer as ‘our song’ as it has lines about sticking with your girl no matter what people say etc. Although this is our song, I really don’t want to give MIL/FIL the satisfaction of lyrics which are about them! MIL will already have a face like Dot Cotton licking wee off a nettle anyway and I really want our first dance to be about us, not them. Does anyone have any words of wisdom, or advice about picking a suitable song?

    I love that song!!   Why do you think the lyrics would seem to be about your MIL/FIL?...  If its special to you then go for it, if anything I think it's a more contemporary choice so I can't imagine anyone thinking of your in laws if you played it 😉

    I think I’m just scared about the ‘What’s with these homies dissing my girl?’ and ‘I don’t care what they say about us anyway‘ raising a few eyebrows. Probably nobody will notice and I’m being overly sensitive to it, as I’m already uncomfortable about the fact they’ll be there in the first place! Just don’t want any excuses for them to create further drama 😕

    I'm a stubborn cow and would go with it deliberately to shove the metaphorical 2 fingers up at them hahaha

    If it means something to you, I think you should stick with it, people may not notice the words anyway as you said. We can’t think of a first dance Song, any suggestions?xx

    I highly doubt anyone will pick up on the lyrics, especially any in-laws. Just go with the song you've picked and don't worry about what people think.

    P.S I found this thread ironic given that the song is about not caring  go with it!
