Help!! Wedding song help! Is hallelujah appropriate
I love the song hallelujah (leonard cohen cover) Mine and FH's first date was to see shrek and I absolutely love the song. I realize the lyrics are a little over the top, a little sexual, but does anyone listen to lyrics. Be honest can I use it or is it a bad choice?

We're getting married at our venue out in the gardens. The venue is an old victorian house that he converted his downstairs into a ballroom/reception site. The sog would be for our first dance

Then I really wouldn't worry about those two lines. People will be interested in so much more than every little word, and although it's talking about sex in those two words, it doesn't use any inappropriate words. Any children there wouldn't understand that bit for example.

it's a pretty song, but I think I might be looking at the meaning a little different. I wouldn't think it to be a wedding appropriate song. BUT that is only my opinion... you mihgt have a diff take and memory on the song. If you like it and it makes you feel good (or happy) go for it. :o) it's your day sweetie. (here's a link to the lyrics if you haven't actually read them http://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/leonardcohen/hallelujah.html)

I think its a good choice :) If you are worried about it just have the dj/mc announce that this song is special because your first date was to see shrek.

I like Lilssassafras' suggestion - that way people know why you chose it.

I like that version better! It is a little long at the start but lovely overall :) Here is the video for it so people don't have to look it up to know which one you mean. Hope this helps. :)
