Of course, these are based on nothing more than our own personal choices – there my be some on this list that you in fact WANT on your list! Bottom line is – if you do have some songs that are not personal favorites (or, that strike the wrong cord with you or your spouse-to-be), add them to your no-play-list. The key to a perfect playlist is to include only the songs that will keep you and your guest happy, dancing, and enjoying the best of times.
