In general, wedding songs are just horrible. From the sugary, played out strains of “Here Comes the Bride“, to the cheez-pop horror of “In Your Eyes” and “Just the Way You Are“, it’s enough to make any sane person swear off the institution of matrimony forever. Why is it that wedding songs are so terrible? I think it’s because they are fraudulent. Listen to the lyrics, filled with impossible love, cherubs, lightning and lots of depression talk. These aren’t the reasons people really get married.
Fortunately for us, Kate Micucci (with a little help from William H. Macy!) is here to save the collective day, and ensure happy marriages, grounded in realism, for years to come. Her new tune, “It’s time to get laid”, performed by herself and Macy, is the perfect song for newlyweds. It covers all the bases, from the tuxedos, to the getaway and the post-wedding room. It does so in a melodic, and amusing way. I suggest that this tune be performed at all weddings from here going forward.
