Music for a wedding …

    There was a wedding in a town near where we used to live. The bride and groom discussed the music they wanted with the organist beforehand. What could possibly go wrong?

    The bride asked for "the Robin Hood music". It's what she got. It is believed, locally, that this is what she wanted:

    She actually ended up coming down the aisle to the strains of:

    We had True Companion all cued up for our Wedding "Money Shot", and one of my wife's friends shut off the music so everyone could hear" us" better. Not as good a story as the above,though.

    Too funny! They didn't have the music cued for the rehearsal? Or ask for a sample? I suppose if played on an organ they were spared the sound of the swift arrow and the lyrics. That's something.

    So many memories stir from the TV Robin Hood theme song. When I was about the age of 4 he was my hero (tied with Mighty Mouse)--and Richard Greene will always be the real Robin Hood. Because he was my first. ;-) Learned to love Errol, too, but his hair looked so funny in pre-Beatles days.

    Theme song comes at the end during the credits.

    I think this was music played at the end of the service as everyone left the church. Maybe that's not something that would be practised. Or if they did practise walking out, maybe the organist wasn't there at the practise, so that his interpretation of their requests :eek: remained unknown until the big day. :) Funny anyway.

    Maybe something jaunty like that is a propitious start to a marriage. LOL

    OK...I can't resist putting in my organ story, except this was for a funeral on Prince Edward Island (where they have funeral co-ops) A neighbour of our was the organist for many services and sometime in the sixties was very happy to have a new electric organ to play with lots of shiny buttons and new fangled options. For her first funeral with the new organ she chose to play "Nearer my God to thee" as the service began. Unfortunately she had pressed the "Banjo" feature without knowing it and the hymn rolled out in a flurry of bluegrass banjo rolls!.....no one was amused as she madly pressed buttons to turn the damn banjo off.
    Of course now it's a favourite story....

    My wife used to do wedding flowers. I heard of one wedding where "Let's Get Together" by Al Green was requested for the recessional song, what was actually played: "Let's Get it On" by Marvin Gaye. They both work equally imho, sharing electrons!

    I also heard about a wedding where the bride coming down the aisle was to the recording of the Star Wars Imperial March theme, instead of the standard bridal march music. major fail

    Mind you, Marvin does sing:

    and if your bride's still "beating around the bush" after publicly giving vows and on the way out of the ceremony, you'd have to wonder why she turned up at all.

    Golly. Instead of the music from Lohengrin? I know Wagner has something of a dark side, but surely he's got nothing on Darth Vader.
