10 wedding songs to avoid. Number 7 is This I Promise You. And while I do agree it is used a lot "" at weddings, I don't agree with their assesment of the band or the song itself.

7. "This I Promise You"
-- 'N Sync
Although it requires little explanation, 'N Sync's tearjerker begs the question: Do you really want a bubblegum boy band past its prime kicking off the night's festivities? Even if this was the song playing at the precise moment you locked eyes for the first time, avoid the novelty ballad and opt for a classic with a longer shelf life.

Re:
I don't know whether it's good or bad that they've dismissed it on the basis of waning popularity of the group. At least it wasn't dissed for its questionable romantic content.

true dat. Some people really need to get their heads out of their asses with some of those songs.

I guess to me, it just sounds like the author wouldn't give the song a chance no matter what, just because it's by "bubblegum boy band." Regardless of whether or not they were past their prime.

I have to admit I agree with the author. If I get married, I certainly don't want boyband music played at my wedding ... Then again, I don't know if I'd want anything other than jazz played at my wedding ...

Re:
you are a dork. see, I don't see "boyband" music as a thing like many people seem to. it's just music. no different that any other "pop music". and I would hope that the DJ will play music I like, including NSYNC, at my wedding reception. Granted, I probably wouldn't choose it as "the song", but definitely at some point during the night. :) Then again, I'm not an elitist snob. ;)

Re:
ahahahaha. dude, I am so going to request some NSYNC at your wedding. A little Bye Bye Bye. Or maybe Up Against the Wall. :) I'll do the dance too. I'll learn it just for the wedding.

Re:
oh, that is such a pretty song. To be honest though, I haven't thought much about my funeral. :)
