I am super interested in this song choice that you are talking about.

In my friend's wedding the groom walked down the aisle to Darth Vader's theme. Everyone started laughing, it was great! The bride walked down the aisle to a much more fitting wedding song. But it completely matched their personalities. They also said their vows in Dr. Seuss rhymes.

Anon, I was considering "Sweet Jane" by the Velvet Underground. Research was inconclusive. Some sources said, "Yes, it's about drugs," while other denied the connection. Since it's a VU tune, I'm assuming it's a heroin thing, just to be safe.
