I found this graphic on Pinterest and it makes me laugh.
The Mister wanted to “rickroll” a dance at our wedding, which we did. I don’t think
many people anyone got it. It didn’t help that he had forgotten the instructions and what was going to happen. So, I almost had to drag him out to the dance floor as he was very confused when “I Will Always Love You” started. Then, the DJ said “RICKROLL!” (which is not typically done and through me off) and started the real song. I want to say it was something funny. I’m sure it was a dance song. I seems I have blocked it out. However, this is a photo of me trying to “act cool” during the rickroll.
I know things didn’t go as planned, nobody got it and I hadn’t eaten much. I was in a weird alternate place where I just wanted to dance. (This probably doesn’t surprise you because of this story.)
Actually, I never ate during the reception. I refused to leave the dance floor.
Now, what I do know is if I hear “Book of Love” by Peter Gabriel (which was our first dance) I think of Rick Astley yet it evokes sentimental emotion. It’s weird. Thankfully, that song never comes on the radio nor do I own it. You can hear it here. This is us during it.
We should have just played “Never Gonna Give You Up” as our first song. Poor Peter Gabriel shouldn’t be mixed up in this.
