Most inappropriate songs to request at reception & how do you 100% prevent them from being requested
Hi everyone. I was wondering what you think are the most inappropriate songs to request at a wedding reception? Songs that you would absolutely put on the "Do Not Play List" for the deejay. More importantly, how would you prevent mischievous guests from requesting some such songs?? It happened to my friend at her 1999 wedding: one of her guy friends who was in his early twenties at the time requested "Lonely Swedish" (The Bum Bum Song) by Tom Green and tricked the deejay by saying the bride's a huge Tom Green fan and would love to hear the song! (Not true). And he didn't stop there. He also decided to request Juvenile's "Back That Thang Up" and even though rap was on the bride's do not play list, this dude again tricked the deejay by saying that she doesn't like rap but that song is her one exception because she thinks it is excellent to dance to!! (Again not true). This fellow then proceeded to dance very umm...ostentatiously to "Back That Thang Up" on the dance floor, twerking long before twerking was a word lol! Well...the bride was good-natured about it, but her stepfather and his three USNA friends were fricking PISSED!!!! I mean if looks could kill! Many guests thought it was funny, but those US Naval Academy guys did not think it was funny at all. The bride's stepdad has never liked this man since. Considering he helped pay for the wedding (which was grand, classy, and beautiful), her stepfather didn't find it amusing. You just don't do that a wedding.....especially one where there are four high-class, dignified, decorated USNA alumni. (But this is the type of guy who wouldn't have cared if Queen Elizabeth was at that wedding....he would've done what he did anyway). So what in your opinion are the most inappropriate songs to request at a reception that you would definitely put on the Do Not Play List not so much break-up wise because you could just blanket that with "please don't play any break-up songs at my reception", but silly or crass humor-wise?? (For example, Samwell's "What What"). And more importantly, how do you make it foolproof; how do you 100% prevent impish guests from requesting such songs..and tricking the deejay into playing them? :0
