10 Extremely Cheesy Songs for Weddings

Looking for some songs to avoid at your wedding or party? Here are the 10 songs that make my eyes roll the hardest when I hear them at weddings. If you are planning a wedding, I suggest starting your ‘Do Not Play’ list with these 10 songs. Now one of these in a night is not going to ruin the party but I personally can’t handle more than that.

10. The Grease Mega-Mix by Olivia Newton John & John Travolta

9. Mambo No. 5 by Lou Bega

8. Dancing Queen by ABBA

7. I Gotta Feeling – The Black Eyed Peas – I had to throw in one relatively current song and this is the worst offender for cheese.

6. Cha Cha Slide by Casper

5. YMCA by Village People

4. Celebration by Kool & The Gang – We’ve all heard this song at every wedding we’ve ever been to. I get that every wedding is a celebration, but does this song need to played to remind us of that?

Please don’t ask me to DJ your wedding if you want any of the next three songs to be played.

3. The Macarena – Los del Rio

2. Hokey Pokey – Apparently this actually gets played at some weddings. I thought that this was only supposed to be heard be in nursery schools and toddler swimming classes.

1. The Chicken Dance – Enough said.

  1. totally agree i hate these songs with passion however that’s what people like here in Perth and it shits me

  2. What’s up, yes this article is truly nice and I have learned lot of things
    from it about blogging. thanks.

  3. First of all I want to say great blog! I had
    a quick question in which I’d like to ask
    if you do not mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing.

    I’ve had trouble clearing my thouughts in getting my thoughts out.
    I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes ttend to be wasted just trying to figurte out how to begin.
    Any ideas or hints? Thank you!
