The most frequently banned wedding party songs

The first dance at a wedding is always a special moment as the happy couple look longingly to each other’s eyes before the DJ gets the party started.
However, many DJs are given a long list of songs they are banned from playing at the wedding party.
The songs most frequently banned from wedding parties
A group of Irish DJs have revealed the list of songs they are most frequently banned from playing by the husband and wife.
It may not come as a surprise that some of the classic cheesy disco tunes such as the Hokey Pokey, the Conga and the Birdie Song are often cut from the wedding playlists.
Dance routine favourites the YMCA and the Macarena are also vetoed by many happy couples.
Thankfully, the Riverdance usually survives the cut, and as the party gets into full swing all the guests can enjoy trying to emulate Lord of the Dance Michael Flatley.
However, romantic ballads including My Heart Will Go On and I Will Always Love You were surprisingly not allowed on the DJ’s playlist by many newlyweds.
Party songs such as the Black Eyed Peas’ I Gotta Feeling and DJ Casper’s The Cha Cha Slide are also not permitted at several Irish weddings.
Here is the list of the most frequently banned songs at Irish weddings.

The Birdie Song
Rock the Boat
