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

This little bugger is hard to shake, you'll find yourself humming it weeks afterward for no real reason.

The Cha Cha Slide - Mr C
Songs that feed you step by step instructions are to the music industry as Ikea is to the furniture business.
We Are Family - Sister Sledge
A great song... if anyone could ever remember more then just the chorus
Play That Funky Music - Wild Cherry
This song could really benefit from the Cha Cha Slide's dance step instructions... How else are you suppose to dance to this song?
Brick House - The Commodores
What woman wants to be compared to a brick house, especially on her wedding day?
Shout - The Isle Brothers
You'll be out of breath in a matter of seconds, and wishing your dress/suit had a much lower polyester count.
Celebrate - Kool & The Gang
Pro: Everyone knows this one! ... Con: everyone knows this one including the grooms grandmother. Be careful she can't take a fall as well as you can.
Girls Just Wanna Have Fun - Cyndi Lauper
We LOVE this song! We always forget how long this song is.
Every Breath You Take - The Police
Beyond how creepy the lyrics are this song is nearly impossible to dance to.
Macarena - Los Del Rio
Does anyone else always manage to smack themselves in the face at least once during this song?
Stayin' Alive - Bee Gees
Lunging and pointing for 4 minutes straight is way more of a workout then we are prepared for.
Heaven Is A Place On Earth - Belinda Carlisle
Lip syncing in your car = way awesome. Lip syncing on the dance floor = way less awesome.
Piano Man - Billy Joel
There is always that guy that tries to impress people by singing along. Don't be that guy.
Single Ladies - Beyonce
Nothing like be singled out as someone without a date at the wedding.
Uptown Funk - Mark Ronson & Bruno Mars
We may be alone in this opinion, but #OverIt
Happy - Pharrell Williams
We don't hate this song. We love this song, and it loves us back... so much so that it wont stop playing on repeat in our head
Blurred Lines - Robin Thicke
Misogyny now has a theme song.
Cotton Eye Joe - Rednex
Not sure what this song is about but man is it fun to line dance to.
Mambo N. 5 - Lou Bega
We might just be holding a grudge against this song because they left out our name.
Livin' la Vida Loca - Ricky Martin
Save it for the honeymoon Ricky
Cupid Shuffle - Cupid
We love getting dance steps from The Cha Cha Slide or wait is this the Cupid Shuffle...Meh!
Great Balls Of Fire - Jerry Lee Lewis
Ever since we saw Top Gun we can't hear this song without crying about Goose.
Love Shack - The B-52s
Really? At a wedding? ... Really?
U Can't Touch This - MC Hammer
Hammer we love you, but unless this reception comes with a complimentary pair of parachute pants we can't touch this.
No matter how many times we have sprinted to the dance floor when this song starts to play, no one ever wants to dance with us.
Sweet Caroline - Neil Diamond
Does anyone know more then two words of this song?
Jump Around - House of Pain
The fastest way to turn your dance floor into a mosh pit
Dancing Queen - ABBA
A great song to take a breather from dancing to.
Really wish every time this played the wedding videographer would start taking sweeping shots of peoples feet.
