As my boss is gone for the afternoon, this is my project. What songs should absolutely be banned from wedding reception play. Songs that some people for some reason like be we all know are death when the DJ plays them. I want to cover my bases.
Related to this, my hometown of Wichita was big on the "Wedding March" - basically played polka and the people lined up and marched around the reception. This was like a big deal, I fucking hated it.

We did -- it was the best wedding planning decision we made. Scrimp on the other shit and put the $ toward a live band.

I got into it that one summer it was popular at the ballpark.

Okay, I'll admit I'm a loser.

As for songs, Love Bites by Def Leppard, and She Fin hates Me by Puddle of Mud. Oh, and no Chris Isaak.
