    If you love the song then use it. The dj has no say in what he feels about it. For what it’s worth, it’s much more of a love song, if you look at the lyrics, than a mother-son song.

    I mean, everyone has already said this, but it is not HIS first dance, it’s yours!  That song is so sweet, and I love that it’s not something everyone picks.  If you want it- use it!

    YES! This was our first dance song, and I LOVE IT. (actually, we used the John Lennon version, but same difference). Our guests loved it too. 

    Your DJ needs to keep his opinions to himself.

    I am totally biased because this is the song that plays when my mom calls me… so I can’t really think of it as a romantic song. However, the show Stand By Me was about best friends, and if you are marrying your best friend (which I assume you are) then it will be a great 1st song!

    @socalmeli: It’s YOUR wedding and as the client of this DJ you have the right to choose whatever song you want, and he should 100% respect that.  If he continues, I would threaten to tell others that he is a jacka** and never give a good referral!

    I would hire a different DJ…but music is the most important thing to us pretty much over everything else!

    It’s the Dj’s job to play the music you request that he play. 

    Approval neither desired, nor required!
