What's on your do not play list for your Dj?

Most people have one - a list of songs that they don't want played at their wedding. What's on your list?

    LOL me too, I think I've only ever heard it fully once , I usually am able to dodge out (yep Ive taken 2 full minutes to refill my water at spin lol) or change the station. Its terrible!

    I think I'm the only person who loves the cha cha slide! lol. I've worked a lot of functions and have seen it pack a dance floor - literally like the grown up hokey pokey.

    For some reason I absolutely hate 99 Red Balloons and enough people there know that so I'm sure it will be requested, I plan on letting the DJ know that this is the one song that if he plays it he ill have a very unhappy bride. Other than that... I'm good oddly enough.

    A lot of other wedding websites have posted articles about DNP lists. They have definitely helped us determine what we don’t want to hear!

    Pretty much the only songs are anything by Rick Astley... my FH LOVES him and especially Never Going to Give You Up. As much as I hate the YMCA/Macarena/cha cha slide/etc, it does get people to dance so I’m for it

    Macarena, chicken dance, cha cha slide or any slides for that matter, Cotten eye joe, I will always love you by Whitney Houston (could be triggering for some), Blurred lines, anything by the Black Eyed Peas (can't do it), AC/DC, Sexyback (overplayed), We are family, Celebration, Locomotion, Footloose, Sweet Home Alabama, Sweet Caroline...to name a few.

    I don't have a ton of "do not play" songs yet! It's something I think I'm going to start working on tho lol.

    I didn't have any no play songs. I really wanted people to dance, so even if I wasn't a big fan of the song, I could manage 3-4 minutes for others to enjoy their music too. It also gave me time for a quick bathroom break or to grab a drink.

    Anything country. I’m not a country music fan. I told our DJ I want a lot of 80s 90s and 2000s with some music from today.
