What about when people pay attention to only part of the lyrics? DH and I had our first dance to Edwin McCain's "I'll Be," which to me, is a song about making promises to be there for each other. I still get misty-eyed when it comes on the radio! But this part of the chorus:
I'll be your crying shoulder,
I'll be love's suicide
I'll be better when I'm older,
I'll be the greatest fan of your life.
Caused one of my aunts (Fern, incidentally, if you read about her lovely email) to ask my Grandma, "Why are they dancing to a song about SUICIDE?!" My Grandma and I giggled about it later!
I have been to a few weddings where the HC danced to Boyz II Men's "End of the Road." That is a breakup song, but it's a great song!
