It is wedding season and there is always a list of songs with DO NOT PLAY. We at Kustom Koozies support all the wedding parties in their requests.
This comes from more than 2 dozen professional DJ’s on nearly 200 weddings.
Here is the list
- Chicken Dance
- Cha-Cha Slide
- Cupid Shuffle
- Electric Boogie
- Hokey Pokey
and # 11 is Love Shack.
Many couples want to avoid line dances at their weddings, as well as songs that have inappropriate lyrics. I was shocked at some serious wedding classics on the no-play lists — your “All of Me” and Etta James and romantic staples — but Hollmann reminded me that some may be associated with a past broken relationship or marriage.
Still, some couples may want to err on the side of crowd-pleasing by including a few songs with lyrics that are their own choreography instructions and line dances. There’s a tradeoff to being unique: “Many of these popular wedding songs also populate the ‘must play’ list — because they are fun and work on dance floors!” Hollmann said.
