When at a wedding, there are certain things that a person should not do. A person’s choices could put them in jail if acted out at a wedding. Yes, some songs should not be taken literally. Just as you cannot believe everything you read on the Internet, you should not do everything sung in a song.
Songs That Would Land You In Jail
I Touch Myself by the Divinyls. There should not be any inappropriate touching of yourself at a wedding. This would be considered lewd conduct which is a misdemeanor.
Hit Me With Your Best Shot by Pat Benetar. There should not be any physical punching of other people at a wedding. This is called assault and battery. Assault is the threat of physical violence. Battery is the actual physical violence. This would land you in jail!
Why Don’t We Get Drunk by Jimmy Buffet. By the title you may be thinking that it is ok to be drunk and not go to jail. However, the next verse in the song is “and screw”. If having sex in public, you could be arrested with indecent exposure and disturbing the peace.
Fight For Your Right (To Party) by The Beastie Boys. As stated above, any physical violence would be considered battery. In addition, you would also be changed with disturbing the peace – particularly all the wedding guests including the bride and groom,.
Been Caught Stealing – Jane’s Addiction. One positive way to end up in jail is to steal the wedding gifts and/or money card boxes. If you are caught stealing anything at a wedding, you will also have to worry about all of the family members attacking you as all against one.
I Want A New Drug by Huey Lewis and the News. The song speaks of a person who needs a new drug. Well the Police do not like persons in possession of illegal drugs. In addition, the Police also don’t like people who sell drugs.
As a result, it is not always a good idea to take wedding songs literally. Please do not act out songs that would land you in jail at weddings.
