I found this link from a Neil Young website.  "A Man Needs A Maid" is number 17.   It certainly would be a BAD idea to play that at a wedding.

But Our Boys are at number 16: with "A Quick One, While He's Away".

Surely "A Legal Matter" would be The Who's "Most Inappropriate Wedding Song"?

The rest of the list is at which includes this:

The plot of the story is simple. A girl is sad that her boyfriend is away. Her friends suggest that she take a substitute lover, Ivor The Engine Driver. When the boyfriend returns, she confesses her infidelity and is forgiven. Repeated listens might discourage the groom from going on long business trips for the first couple years.

Sample Lyric:
"I missed you and I must admit
I kissed a few and once did sit
On Ivor the Engine Driver's lap
And later with him, had a nap"

Little Known Fact:
The Who wanted to put Cellos on the track but their producer said they couldn't afford it. So they sang "cello, cello, cello, cello," where they thought they should go.
