@cupcakebride2013:  Black Eyed Peas….was an absolute no no for us.

Funny thing, I LOVE the chicken dance and told our DJ a million times we must have it. He ignored me and didn’t do it. I was not happy. 🙁

@cupcakebride2013:  honestly, I like most of the songs on Julie’s list! Ha! For me it would be no chicken dance, no Macarena, no Chris Brown (great dance songs but I hate him), no “Grease Megamix” and basically no anything in which women are referred to as bitches or hos.

There is this song called “Crazy Bitch”, by Buckcherry. This woman played it and danced to it while walking down the aisle. The words are so nasty, and there were kids at the wedding. I felt so horrified for her. I’m all for doing what you want as long as you aren’t hurting anyone else, but I felt sorry for everyone there.

Gotye somebody that I used to know.

A DJ seriously played that during dinner at a wedding I went to a couple of years ago. Great song, and Gotye is a musical genius, but at a wedding?

Dh and I are huge country fans, so our reception reflected that. I gave the DJ a ‘must play’ list and we requested a lot of songs as well.

We did have a few rules, no stupid dance songs (excluding Bootscooting Boogie), nothing raunchy, nothing with too much profanity.

I wish I had out Gangam Style on our do not play list, but it didn’t occur to me since everyone stopped listening to it ages ago.  Our DJ played it, naturally.
