    Here’s a topic that might have been previously discussed, but I’m wondering what has been the strangest, weirdest request for a wedding processional you’ve gotten.

    I was asked for “Born To Be Wild”.

    My all time favorite request as organist was for me to play “Send in the Clowns” for the seating of the mothers.

    Sweet Georgia Brown (the Globe Trotter’s Theme) for recessional.

    I played one where they wanted all Welsh airs. The recessional was “Good Humoured and Fairly Tipsy”! Cheers!

    That was for the processional, he wanted “theme for deerhunter” to be played. It does have a really pretty melody but it’s just kinda strange.

    As an organist, “Be Not Afraid.” It just cracked me up.

    Another time in an Italian church, they wanted “Theme from the Godfather.” The priest said emphatically “NO!”

    Once a young bride asked me to “taps” as the groom entered. Of course she wanted an arpeggiated “harpy” version. I eventually got tired of her tacky sense of humor and suggested that she would be happier with another musician.

    And when I say “taps” as the groom entered I mean play “Taps” as the groom entered….;-)
