Overplayed, depressing or just play inappropriate these are the worst songs to play on your wedding day. Hand this list to your wedding DJ and tell them that under no circumstance are they to play these tunes.
Puppy Love – Donny Osmond
There’s sweet and then there’s just plain vomit-inducing. Sure your gran might sway along but no one else will.
The Bad Touch – Bloodhound Gang
Funny with your uni mates but not something you want to see your new in-laws grooving along to.
Cotton Eye Joe – Rednex
Not only is this song incredibly annoying but spinning around ‘barn-dance style’ will probably make you feel sick.
THE MOST POPULAR FIRST DANCE SONGS
Love will tear us apart – Joy Division
You’ll avoid your new husband’s eyes while this – admittedly fantastic but deeply depressing – break-up classic is playing
Gold Digger – Kanye West
Did things just get a bit awkward?
Love stinks – J Geils Band
Made famous by The Wedding Singer – Adam Sandler proves why this is one of the worst wedding songs.
10 BEAUTIFUL FIRST DANCE SONGS FOR 2014
Barbie Girl – Aqua
No matter how drunk you are this will never be funny.
Macarena – Los del Rio
Just because you remember the dance moves doesn’t mean this is a reason to play this nineties novelty car crash.
Tears in Heaven – Eric Clapton
This is a beautiful song that sounds rather romantic but is in fact about death. Death and weddings - not a great combo.
The Grease Megamix - Olivia Newton-John & John Travolta
No. Never. Not even if you have a fifties theme.
