Amazing Indie First Dance Song

I was just listening to Teen Dream by Beach House and realized that the track ‘Take Care’ is very sweet and it could be an awesome first dance song. It’s perfect for someone who is looking for something that is a little different and not too sappy. Check it out here:

Beach House – Take Care of You

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.
