What's on your "must play" and "don't play" song lists?

Hi,
Working on our song list.. don't want to put too many must and don't play songs.. I want to let the DJ do their job since they know what gets people out on the dance floor..  But I was curious what everyone else has on their lists!

    The only thing we said was no country and to make sure everything is edited (radio version of songs). Everything else is game.

    We have all our music on an IPOD, one of the pluses of doing thie route (additionally to saving big money) is that only songs we want played will be on it! (and a list of "if theres extra time needing to be filled" songs)

    This may be the Texan in me talking, but aside from it being country, what's so bad about it? lol
