Marriage is one of humanity’s oldest institutions. And having songs and/or music at weddings is no doubt just as ancient. In modern times songs like The Carpenters’ “We’ve Only Just Begun” or Shania Twain’s “From This Moment On” are examples of positive songs that reflect on the hope of a couple starting their marital bliss. But some songs, which I came across on a web page called the Top 100 1970s Songs for Weddings, are real head-scratching ones. Let’s take a fun journey through ten of those songs.
Songs are a lot like people; some enter our lives and take up residence there. We purchase singles and albums and get to know them intimately, and soon, they are familiarly and comfortably ensconced in our lives, like family.
Every artist has a peak. It might be their commercial peak or, it might be their creative peak, and sometimes, both occur on the same recording, but not always.
