It’s wedding season. Time to grab a drink, put on the dancing shoes and embarrassingly show your friends and family your sweet moves. Everyone has those songs that they love to dance to, but what are those songs people HATE to dance to. The website ‘FiveThirtyEight’ asked their listeners what are those songs they want banned from their wedding playlist. Now, these aren’t technically bad songs. But these are songs you hear at every wedding and might be called ‘overplayed, cliché and perhaps cheesy’.
As far as music goes, genres matter. 10% of people asked said NO country. While 3% said NO rap music. Also lyrics are important, many asked in the survey said they did not want to hear inappropriate lyrics at a wedding. If you like the chicken dance, you might not like this list.
