I hate the Sinatra “Love and Marriage” song and I’ve heard it some at weddings.

All group dances were on ours: no YMCA, Chicken Dance, Electric Slide, whatever Shuffle, Macarena, etc. The closest we allowed was stuff like Shout!

We also banned the first dance song from my first marriage and Achy Breaky Heart because DH hates that song. I didn’t really think it was likely it would be played anyway, but hey… it made him happy to know for sure.

I really don’t have any songs I hate. If the DJ played one I didn’t like, I’d just leave the dance floor. No big deal.

@mrsSonthebeach:  Ugh! Achy Breaky Heart should be banned in general.

Anything that’s in top 40 pop generic crap is banned! 


Thankfully our DJ is an alternative/indie lover, so we won’t have a problem 😀
