Subject: Gay wedding songs
From: GUEST,In good company

Just had a lovely weekend at the wedding of a gay relative. Both brides were lovely and there was enough love in the air to fill a stadium! A grand time was had by all but I really wished i had thought of this before. Pondering if I could do an appropriate song and I just couldn't think of anything. Plenty marriage songs for men and women but, other than tweaking the words of something, I don't l know any! I can find plenty of examples of suitable songs in other genres but nothing I would be able to sing unaccompanied or with minimum concertina backing.

Any suggestions?

Cheers

Dave

"Step we gaily, on we go" is a good start...

Funnily enough, Jack, one of the brides was Marie! The piper did play that tune :-)

Most wedding songs seem to be about love and so forth, and don't make any reference to gender.

I wasn't going to mention it in case it scared the horses but the Musket you know Dave wrote an ode he performed on our stag night (Kris and I broke yet another tradition by sharing a stag night.)

He called it The Ballad of Henry Fitzpatrick and Patrick Fitzhenry.

To be fair, he was threatened with dire prognostications if he repeated it at the wedding. He said that's nothing to Kris and I burning in hell, so that's a score draw.

If only there was a like button...

I suspect it would not have been suitable for this wedding either but thanks for trying at least :-)

Ruddy heck. I'd forgotten I'd penned that dubious ode. You're right Dave, it is more of a stag night than a wedding reception ditty.

The comments above about many songs being non gender specific is a good one. When we write songs, we tend to have people or an amalgamation of people in mind as we write, even if the finished song is pure fiction and abstract. As these more enlightened times are demonstrating, many will be thinking of people they know whose weddings were good subjects for cracking songs and by simple law of averages, these will be gay people we sing of without knowing it, nor indeed have puerile interest in knowing.

Whether they'd hit the mudcat song archive is a different matter. Conservatives forces are still a number of memorial services away from their influence being a factor.

Yay! Took me some time, but I got there :-) I was being too specific I think and didn't pick up on the gender comment first. Sorry Kevin. When I saw the phrase 'non gender specific' the penny dropped. I searched for same with 'love songs' or 'wedding songs' and I now have them coming out of my ears :-) I knew we would get there eventually. Thanks all.
