Top 10 Worst Love Songs To Play At A Wedding According To Illinois DJ
When it comes to planning a wedding, the music selection is one of the most important decisions you'll make. It sets the tone for the entire event and can make or break the ceremony and afterparty vibes.
However, there are certain love songs that should be avoided at all costs because they can be offensive or just plain inappropriate for a wedding.
The Top 10 Worst Songs To Play At A Wedding In Illinois
#1: "Blurred Lines" by Robin Thicke - As much as people like this song, it has criticized for its lyrics (I'll let you google that one). It's not the type of message you want to send at your wedding.
#2: "Baby, It's Cold Outside" by Dean Martin - Banned by some radio stations due to its lyrics, it suggests the man is trying to convince the woman to stay with him against her will. If you play this at your wedding, guests might get the wrong idea...
#3: "I Will Always Love You" by Whitney Houston - This song is played at every wedding I've ever been to. Did anybody know it's also a song about a toxic relationship and domestic abuse???
#4: "I Will Survive" by Gloria Gaynor - Honestly, I'd never play this at my own wedding because it's literally about leaving a toxic relationship. EW.
#5: "You Give Love A Bad Name" by Bon Jovi - Just by the name alone should deter you from even adding it to your wedding playlist lol. The lyrics talk about a broken heart, a love that's gone bad, and a lover who's been unfaithful.
#6: "Marry You" by Bruno Mars - Okay, this is just a personal preference because this song is soooo overplayed. I think it's okay to play this when proposing, but to also play it at your wedding is kinda weird.
#7: "Every Breath You Take" by The Police - When you thought it was a romantic love song, it's about a possessive lover who watches every breath you take and every move you make. I mean, if that's what you're into... go for it.
#8: "Thinking Of You" by Katy Perry - No, not thinking of your partner... thinking of someone from your past. Katy is struggling to move on from a break-up and is holding on to memories of a past lover, despite the fact that they have no choice but to let go.
#9: "Someone Like You" by Adele - Sorry to break it to you, this is about a woman visiting her former partner, who is now married, and realizing that he has moved on and built a new life with someone else. DON'T PLAY IT.
#10: "My Heart Will Go On," by Celine Dion - I know what you're thinking. "The story behind it is so cute, though." Although the song is stunning, it's difficult to not associate it with the image of Leonardo DiCaprio sinking to the bottom of the ocean.
