I can’t really think of ones your missing… though that’s alot more than I’ve ever seen.

For me, I can’t wait to do the cha cha slide in my wedding dress!

That is a huge list!!  What is the DJ supposed to say if someone asks to hear a Lady Gaga song?  “I don’t have any”????

I know some of these songs are cheesy, but I will say the cupid shuffle and chacha slide got the most people out on the dance floor at our reception.

WTF… I love Lady Gaga and U2 is my favorite band. Seriously. We played all kinds of “wrong” songs at our reception and everyone had a blast singing and dancing!

That’s a good list, but when we were talking to our DJ about it, he was like ” you don’t want to cut too many of the popular songs out, because then people won’t dance” It’s hard for me too because I can’t stand more than half of those songs, but I want my guests to have a great time and dance!!! just throwing it out there 🙂

wow!  that’s the longest do-no-play list I’ve ever seen.

I’m a big fan of the group dances – they get everyone out on the dance floor.

I take issue with a few of your choices. Wink

@Jessie21:  Agreed.

I have a friend who is really into music, but obscure, indie bands most people have not heard of. When he was going on and on about how he only wanted “good” music at his wedding (as in only the obscure bands he thought were good) a friend said, “That’s fine, but just remember you want your guests to enjoy the music, too.” He said that was the best advice he got and I’ve also been trying to keep it in mind. I think it’s great to put any specific songs that you really hate on a do not play list but I’m not so sure about cutting out really popular artists entirely.

That is the BEST do not play list!!! Thank you!

I’ve been saying all year that anything by Black Eyed Peas is on the do-not-play list 🙂

Nor the “We Are Family” song… yuck

Our entire “do not play” list consists of “Old Time Rock & Roll” by Bob Seger.  My choice.

There are more than a few songs on your list that we’ll be dancing to next Saturday! 😉
