What Not to Play at the Dance

You’ve exchanged vows, popped the champagne and cut the cake. But before you head out on the dance floor, keep in mind that not every song that gets your toes tapping is necessarily a good fit for a wedding dance.

As you’re putting together your playlist for your DJ, watch out for these potentially inappropriate wedding dance tunes, rife with images of breakups, pessimism, cheating, lies — and even murder. (Of course, if you’re feeling ironic, just about any of these songs are fair game.)
