Traditional: "The Chicken Dance" (who the fuck knows?)

New Times says: "The Safety Dance" (Men Without Hats)

Try to Avoid: "Stand" (R.E.M.)

LAST DANCE: The coda. The martini. The denouement. It all comes down to one question: How do you want to send away your guests? On a cloud of sweet, Louis Armstrong-esque melancholy? With a tangy layer of Al Green-scented soul-musk? Buzzed on a shot of Sinatra? Those are all fine options, but shouldn't you stay with the trailblazing alt-music theme? The truth is, at this point, you're probably so wasted, you're asking the DJ for "Billie Jean."

Traditional: "Let's Stay Together" (Al Green)

New Times says: "Electric Feel" (MGMT)

Try to Avoid: "Closing Time" (Semisonic) unless you want an annulment.

As a local wedding DJ, I can personally say that if I had a couple request these songs I would welcome the deviance. "Traditional" weddings can get dreary within this occupation so honestly I'd welcome the chance of using your "Try to avoid" songs just for the shear relief of irony.

As a Doors fan, I am not surprised that you would soundingly reject "The End". However, I would like to point out that the Doors have some romantic ballads, such as "Light My Fire", "The Crystal Ship", "Moonlight Drive", and "Wishful Sinful".

Any classical music, I find, is appropriate for any wedding.

Nice choices on your picks. However, lest any brides-to-be reading this end up walking down the aisle to surprisingly unfamiliar music, they should know that the traditional wedding march ("Here Comes the Bride") is by Wagner. Mendelssohn's is more commonly used as a recessional.
