‘Chicken Dance’ Tops List of Most Banned Wedding Songs
Agreeing on a playlist for your wedding dance is kind of a big deal. And it appears there’s a good deal of songs that couples just don’t want to be played - at all - on their big day under any circumstances.
The good folks at fivethirtyeight.com took a survey of a couple of dozen DJs spanning over 200 weddings and have compiled a list of the list of songs that are the most banned at wedding dances- and there are more than a few surprises.
For example "Sweet Caroline" by Neil Diamond, "Don’t Stop Believing" by Journey, and apparently, we will not "bang, bang on the door, baby" because "Love Shack" by the B-52s squeaked in at number 11. And that goes for you too, "Mony Mony" and "Cotton-Eyed Joe."

Here are the top 10 least wanted songs at a wedding dance:
1. "Chicken Dance"
2. "Cha-cha Slide"
4. "Cupid Shuffle"
6. "Electric Boogie"
7. "Hokey pokey"
OK, seriously, most of those songs were played at our wedding! And "Celebration," "Sweet Home Alabama," "Footloose," and "Brown-Eyed Girl" were mandatory on our big day.
Does that make us weird?
