I find it easier to think of songs I HAVE to hear and songs I do not want to hear at all. Otherwise it’s all fair game=)

I told my DJ no “choreographed” songs (stuff like the Cha Cha Slide, Cupid’s Shuffle, Electric Slide, chicken dance, etc), and nothing by Lady Gaga. My last neighbor was a big fan of hers and liked to blare her music all.night.long. I get eye twitches whenever I hear any of her songs now.

LOL, I love that Jezebel list – just reminded me to add “Anything by John Mayer” to my do not play list 🙂

In a similar vein, our DJ will be getting a strict “NO songs by Chris Brown” direction.

Why is the thong song not on this list? ALthough I did go to a wedding once where the DJ handed out keys and underwear to guests. It was a gag on the bride and groom.
