posted by Brian Taylor - 

We're still the middle of wedding season, and if you're not really a  "wedding person," hopefully you've been able to dodge the bullet.  And  you'll probably also appreciate another look at this list of the  'Most-Banned Wedding Songs.'

They're mostly the ones that have cheesy choregraphed dances, which  make receptions even more unbearable.  However, if you ARE a "wedding  person," you'll probably be outraged, because these arethe ones you  most LOOK FORWARD to.

The people at FiveThirtyEight.com asked more than two dozen DJs, who'd  worked hundreds of weddings, what songs couples most often banned.  It's  not scientific . . . but after scanning the list, it's obvious that  it's accurate.  (???)
