That is an exactly appropriate use of that song. Perhaps the only one.

I love the ironic use, btw. Similarly, I think every wedding should try to work in a tune like "Working Class Hero," "Positively 4th Street," or "Diamond's and Rust" (the Baez, not Judas Priest, arrangement).

Slide WCH between upbeat dance tunes, or make the band learn it. Maybe make it the song for the bride and her father's dance, or the couple's first dance. Could you imagine an R&B wedding band doing that, early - before everyone's drunk? "You think you're clever and classless and free... But you're still fucking peasants as far as I can see!" Have them sing it deadpan, perhaps even upbeat, like it's any other tune. Dance to it like it's totally proper for the event. And never comment on it. Never acknowledge the impropriety of the choice to anyone afterward.
All is for the best in the best of all possible worlds.
