Congratulations are in Order

I played at a wedding recently (or a month ago, I am bad at updating my blog!) I actually enjoy playing at weddings, and honestly I enjoyed singing at this wedding even more then I ever thought that I would. There is just something about cheesy love songs that really gets me going. I have included a few examples. I hope you are sitting down and not near any one of the opposite sex these songs have a lot of power. Please note mockery is what I do well, and if you LOVE love songs either don't read this or get ready to shake it off at the end. Buckle up and enjoy the ride...

"... Ask me just what I'd do for you And I'll tell you I would do anything..."

...except laundry I am not a huge fan of it. I am not a huge fan of dishes either, but I guess can do them for you. Oh, and don't ask me to not smile because that just makes me laugh.

"...All day long I can hear people talking out loud. But when you hold me near you drown out the crowd..."
If only this were true! Picture this, you standing awkwardly in the middle of one of those TMI moments. I would scream, "BABE, HURRY ON OVER HERE. This guy is saying too much I need to you to drown him out with your love!" (Read that quote redneck and it is even funnier!)

"...As we lie awake in my bed You're my survival, you're my living proof My love is alive and not dead.."
People pinch themselves as proof of life or at least alertness. This is one super charged heart if the only proof love needs is lying next to someone, awake, in a bed. I am assuming this is circumstantial.

"...Lovely, never, ever change. Keep that breathless charm. Won't you please arrange it ? ..."

Honestly if I could choose to never change (gain wrinkles, bags, age spots, weight etc.) I would. Tragically I can't arrange it because the big man upstairs told me no. I will try to smooth things over though and get back on those arrangements. I am sure we can come up with something. Maybe a plea deal.

"...No I could not ask for more then this time together, could not ask for more then this time with you. Every prayer has been answered every dream I had come true..."

Did you say you come with a big house, a cook, a maid, a new car, oh and don't forget your horse! Oh wait I wanted to be a rock star too, can you fulfill that one as well? Where are you going??? Come back here??? Please fulfil my dreams!!!

"...Somehow ever since I've been around you Can't go back to being on my own ..."

Really? Sorry man, you don't have a choice I HAVE to go to work today and the boss man didn't like it last time I brought you with me. Wait don't you have a job you need to get to too? Maybe we could find a couples job somewhere.

"...Forever, I'll hold you close in my arms, I can't resist your charm..."

Just stopping using your charm to get me to take the garbage out. That's not fair, I fall for it every time.

"...You always have my unspoken passion, Although I might not seem to care..."

Finally an honest sentiment. Though on occasion, right in the middle of the 4th quarter tie game, neck to neck, scoring run, I still sometimes wonder if you may have more then one unspoken (or screaming) passion.

If you can name the title and artist of each of these songs, I will buy you ice cream! That was fun. Honestly I could keep going all bay, but tragically I am not as cynical as I make myself out to be. I love these songs and I BELIEVE!

Well here is what you really want to see. Lucky I actually had a camera there!
