We all have those certain songs that just make us cringe and would rather not hear on our wedding day. What songs made the cut on your do not play list?
I just started mine but I know that I do not want:
macarena, chicken dance and who let the dogs out.

Anything by Shania Twain.

The Electric Slide
The Hokey Pokey
Macarena, the Chicken Dance, Who Let the Dogs Out are all definite no plays.
Anything country is out. Sadly, anything hip-hop is, too, although I’m hoping to sneak A Tribe Called Quest in.
We’re actually having 2 DJs, one for me and one for her. My DJ is my friend and he’s a professional DJ who has a steady club job in Chicago. He’s going to play all House with some 80s and 90s pop (and hopefully some disco!). Her DJ is going to spin all Bollywood songs mixed with disco. It should be a *ton* of fun!

any songs that there is a "dance" associated with are completey banned. No "Land Down Under" or "American Woman" (FI’s friends love to sing this one to me as it is what I was refered to for several years after Fiance and I got together) – yes, I get it, Fiance and I are from different countrys but let’s save it for Karaoke please! Fortunately, we are doing an iPod reception so we have complete control.

I’m definitely with aloweha, if the song has a dance to match, it is NOT being played. And no heavy metal, sorry to any metal fans, but it is my most unfavorite type of music, and I attended a wedding last summer where the DJ kept playing heavy metal songs (requested by a couple of super-drunk guests), it is not dance music in my book.
@kenny – your dual DJ’s sound like fun!!!

loralie-Me too! That song drives me crazy! And I love Aerosmith.
On the no list for us is The Macarena, The Hokey Pokey. No Electric Slide but I think we’ll replace it with Personal Jesus. We’ve got a good amount of kids and teens coming to the wedding so we’re going to do "some" of the dance songs. I’m torn on the Chicken Dance-it’s fun, especially for the kids.

i apologize in advance for anyone who loves this song but "celebrate"… i think its just so over used that it turns me off.. also the chicken dance!

I;m with you on "Celebrate" krissybee. I’ve pretty much banned anything that a typical "wedding band" might be tempted to sing, "the hustle" and other stereotypical 70s dance songs that you ALWAYS hear at weddings come to mind.

#5. Ha! Weird Al is actually on our must-play list, at least the song "White and Nerdy" (based on "Ridin" by Chamillionaire) because it’s my fiance’s unofficial theme song. Maybe it’s because we’re…white and nerdy? 🙂

I’m with you girls on the aerosmith song. I love aerosmith, but that song is just horrible!

Well gee, I don’t have a "do no play" list, and most of the normal songs (Macarena, YMCA, chicken dance, etc.) are on my "must play and Fiance HAS to dance or else" list.
