10 Overused, but too awesome to leave out, wedding & dance songs

As this posts, I will be on my way to start my wedding weekend away. In honor of my best friend's wedding, I have a couple of wedding-related posts scheduled while I'm away.

Working at a hotel, I get to hear my fair share of wedding music coming from the wedding dances that go on downstairs from where I work.

1. I Loved Her First - Heartland
Very overused father/daughter dance song, but still gets me crying everytime

2. From This Moment - Shania Twain
Bride and groom's song

3. I Got a Feeling - The Black Eyed Peas

4. Locomotion - Kylie Minogue

5. Crazy B*tch - Buckcherry
I was surprised that this one plays so often. It's awkward taking phone calls or talking with guests when you hear the song blaring in the background like I'm at a party. Go professionalism.

6. I Will Survive - Gloria Gaynor

7. Billie Jean - Michael Jackson

8. Girls Just Wanna Have Fun - Cyndi Lauper

9. Jump Around - House of Pain

10. Summer Nights or a remix of Grease music

Kind of Random Songs
Mambo #5 - Lou Bega
I'm Too Sexy

What are some of your favorite wedding and wedding dance songs?

I'm pretty shocked that crazy b*tch made this list. I don'texactly think that it's a song that I would want to be played at my wedding. Lol even though I love the song...

I'm pretty sure I've heard Mambo #5 at every wedding I've been to since 1999! Crazy random.

Have a great weekend and I wish your BFF and her new hubby all the luck in the world!

when i married my ex, i had only one set of instructions for the DJ: if you play anything on this list, i will castrate you with the cake knife. this list included "celebration," any of those mushy edwin mccain songs, "from this moment on" and all the old standards.

he did not disappoint me, either.

Haha! I Will Survive?! That cracks me up! We didn't really have any dancing at our wedding, nor have I actually gone to very many, so I'm not sure what my favorite would be! Our wedding song was "Wonderwall" by Oasis, kinda different, but I loved it!

No Macarana?

Lady Old Soul said...

If we're talking about the first dance of the Mr. and Mrs., I'm the sappy sort. Either their personal song from when they were dating (mine are I'll Be, & I Could Not Ask For More, by Edwin McCain) or something like Amazed by Lonestar. Some friends of ours had Some Kind of Wonderful as their first dance, and it really made me love that song.

I'm always partial to disco music for the uptempo parts of the night's dancing, though I think I'm in the minority there! xD As long as it isn't that dreadful pop crap that's current now (Like Lady Caca, or Rihanna), I'm good to go!

I'm proud to say NONE of those songs were played at my wedding : ) Yay me!

The Shania Twain one was overplayed when it first came out too. Kinda sad, cause I liked that song. But now it bugs me a little when it comes on...
