Wedding Classics -The Songs We Love To Hate
It’s time to start thinking about what songs and music you like and even more importantly, what songs you want your disc jockey to avoid. Do not worry about banning certain songs at your wedding. Your wedding will not be a disaster if your disc jockey doesn’t play “The Chicken Dance” or “YMCA”. A professional disc jockey normally has over 40,000 songs in their musical arsenal. Eliminating 10 or 20 songs will not affect your DJ’s performance and can guarantee that you create the perfect atmosphere for your style.
Here are some of the most frequently banned songs at a wedding:
- Paradise By The Dashboard Light
- The Chicken Dance
- Electric Boogie (Electric Slide)
- I Gotta Feeling
- Old Time Rock & Roll
- The Hokey Pokey
- I Will Survive
- Love Shack
- The Twist
- We Are Family
- The Conga / Hot Hot Hot
- Country Music
You are in charge. Do not let the banquet facility, family, or your disc jockey tell you otherwise. Others can offer suggestions, but the ultimate decision is in your hands.
Do you have other songs that you are thinking of banning at your wedding? Do they remind you of your prom? That awful night in college? Your old boyfriend? What is it that drives you nuts about that song or artist? It’s all OK, ban whatever song you wish at your wedding. It’s your day – so have it your way!
