Everyone loves them! Just, y'know, in case you don't want your guests to look back on the big day and cringe. Interestingly, the vast majority of the top 10 most banned wedding songs are line dances. Times change, after all. How can you hate Queen? In any event, you can check out the 10 most frequently prohibited wedding songs below; head on over to FiveThirtyEight for the full list. I mean… yeah. Who knows. Regardless, the backlash against this song — which, by the way, dates back to the s — and its accompanying dance has finally begun as couples move to ban it from being played at their wedding celebrations.
Sorry, DJ Casper. According to this list, there will henceforth be neither C-Dur K. 527 - Domenico Scarlatti, Ralph Kirkpatrick - Sonate Per Clavicembalo nor sliding in hotel ballrooms across the country. Now, though? Not so much.
I had never encountered the song or its dance before, but based on the frequency with which our guests suggested it, I assumed it was the Hot New Thing and I was just too unhip to know what it was. Oh, hey, guess what? The more you know, right? This song has no business being played at a wedding. Even if it is about 70 years old. I haven't been able to verify any of this, but it's interesting if true.
It is a good song. It is a recent song. So… why? They were also inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Do it, popularity be damned.
Plan the wedding you and your partner want to have for yourselves — even if it means the DJ plays five hours of nothing but the Electric Slide. Apparently I am even more unhip than I thought. You do you, my friends.
You do you.
