    Yes, Positively 4th Street would have been my first pick. Always thought that was about a woman until I read him saying it's actually a compilation about several people from the folk scene back in the days. In reaction to the Newport story. And nobody specific. Now everybody knows one should never trust what Dylan says.

    Another Dylan song to avoid is Sweetheart Like You. "What's a sweetheart like you doing in a dump like this." :D

    Right.
    A thread about songs to mandatorily play at a wedding would be much more boring.

    And Suspicious Minds, obviously.

    A drummer friend of mine married 25 years ago and asked me and my band to play some songs on his wedding. A 25 minutes gig. And from my perspective it ended like a scandal.
    It was a cool and lighthearted set with some ZZ Top, AC/DC, CCR and Kiss etc. standards. All the young and middle aged people where dancing and enoying themselves. The only one who complained was his dad. Somehow it spoiled the whole job for me. I found it so intolerant having to just suffer some "other generation`s music" for 25 minutes and complaining loudly about it. A total idiot and a completely inept behaviour on an event that was not "his".

    We played a wedding for the daughter and son-in-law of a big local car dealer. Why they thought a Pink Floyd tribute band would be good for a wedding escapes me, but, a gig is a gig. This was pre-Dark Side, so, long ago.

    I hated playing weddings.

    The father of the bride kept coming up to our bassist/singer screaming that "IY'S TOO DAMN LOUD!!". Bas player strums his bass strings, smiled and says, "It's not even on." Dad stiffed us. Word got out amongst a lot of people thru our families and he lost a lot of business at his car dealership in the long run.
