Wedding Wednesday: Figure Out Songs You Don’t Want

I’m a big fan of NPR. While I was just browsing around their website a few days ago, I came across an article titled, “The Least Appropriate Wedding Song” Naturally, this article grabbed my attention since it is my business to blog about all things entertainment, wedding and music related. The article really got me thinking – we all really focus on the songs we  want played at the reception, but what about the ones we DON’T want?  Let’s just think about it for a minute, what if the Band or DJ plays a song that matches your preference in genres but you hate? What if a popular break up song plays? Trouble.

I mean, don’t get me wrong, I love Fleetwood Mac, for sure, but playing “Go Your Own Way” at a wedding just because it’s fun to dance to doesn’t mean it’s a good idea. The song is like, the ultimate break up song. Or what if you played “Jesse’s Girl” by Rick Springfield… it’s a song about a girl cheating on her boyfriend with his best friend – great to imply that you’re seeing the best man.

You could come up with a list with numerous songs that are terribly suited for weddings – so why not specify some very big DO NOT PLAYS for your bandleader or DJ? It’ll save you some embarrassment.
