This is my fantasy first-dance song, so if I never get married I'll settle for hearing it at someone else's wedding. "Jessie's Girl," Rick Springfield. I love this song and basically want to hear it as much as possible. "Suit & Tie," Justin Timberlake. C'mon. If you don't play "Suit & Tie" at a reception, then you're not taking it seriously. One song I can't stand: "Party in the USA," Miley Cyrus. I have a love/hate relationship with this song. It's a guilty pleasure, sure, but I think it's just played out at weddings. — Leah Blair, editorial intern I was at a wedding last summer and the DJ was playing all the clichés. Then a friend requested "Return of the Mack," by Mark Morrison, and the whole vibe changed for the better. Prince's "Purple Rain" is the slow jam for the anti-slow-jam crowd. And we're far enough into this decade that pulling any hit from the late 2000s/early 2010s is refreshing. Think: "Club Can't Handle Me," Flo Rida. Also, can we bring "Macarena" back into the rotation of line dances? As far as songs I'd keep off the playlist: "Don't Stop Believin'," Journey. "Sweet Caroline," Neil Diamond. "Wagon Wheel," Old Crow Medicine Show. — Mary Chellis Austin, editor Leon Russell made Wedding Album with his wife Mary. It's a blend of country and soul, a little him, a little her. "Love's Supposed to Be That Way" is a personal favorite but the whole album is great. And sticking with Leon, Donny Hathaway's version of "A Song for You" will get the tears of joy rolling. For the dancing, What are three songs you love (or would love) to hear at weddings and one song that you can't stand to hear at weddings?
