30 Songs We Love to Hate

Weddings each have their own unique quirks that make you fall in love with them; until, that is, you reach the reception dance floor. The DJ starts spinning and you feel like you have been transported back to the last wedding you attended... or was it the wedding before that... or the one before that? 

We don't mean to throw shade at your DJ, it's not their fault that these wedding "classics" seem to magically pack the dance floor. Keeping ourselves from rolling our eyes is nearly impossible, even as we run to join in the dancing to these 30 songs we love to hate. 

YMCA - The Village People

Who hasn't caught themselves unintentionally doing the arm motions for the YMCA?
