We booked our DJ a few months back courtesy of my fabulous mother who offered to pay for one after I told her my plan of using our IPOD for music to save money. The DJ company that we are using posted a list of their Top 200 Most Requested Songs of the Past Year. Meaning people actually WANTED to hear these songs.
Well I printed off the list to use as a guide for creating our own Do Not Play list as well as get ideas for other song we do want to incorporate into the wedding. We're still in the process of picking songs for the ceremony, dinner, dancing. We haven't even decided on our first dance song yet but that's another story.
Anyways while looking over the list I was shocked to see some of the songs listed. Songs that have played at WEDDINGS. First let me start by saying that a lot of these songs I like, hell I have most of them on my IPOD...however they are probably not very wedding appropriate. For example-
Britney Spears- 'Womanizer'....ummm I don't think I would be marrying Kristian if he were a womanizer.
Britney Spears- 'Toxic'....again I really don't consider Kristian or our relationship Toxic
Kanye West- 'Gold Digger'... seriously?! How on Earth would this be appropriate to play at a wedding??
Pussycat Dolls- 'Don't Cha Wish your Girlfriend was Hot like me'- No explanation needed on this one.
Nelly Furtado- 'Promiscuous'- Yeah this might give my new in-laws the wrong idea about me
Madonna- 'Like a Prayer'- isn't this the one where she was making out with the black Jesus in the music video??
Katy Perry- 'I kissed a girl'- ummm this song is about two chicks making out 'nuff said
In addition to the inappropriate songs on this list that will NOT be played I am including a pretty extensive list of songs that just personally annoy the shit out of us including-
-Macarena......Hate Hate Hate this song
-The Chicken Dance.....that's a big fat N-O
-The Electric Slide....it's not a 6th grade dance
-Y.M.C.A....I'm basically anti line/choreographed dances
-Anything by the Black Eyed Peas....this is Kristian's request, I don't mind the BEP
There are about 100 other songs that will be making the Do Not Play list but this is just a sampling. Are there any other songs that I definitely SHOULDN'T play at the wedding or rather songs that you think would get the crowd up and dancing??
