With wedding season almost upon us, digital music service Spotify has revealed that Brits are finally ditching the cheesy tunes when it comes to choosing their wedding music.
Analysis of nearly 78,000 wedding playlists created via the service has shown that Brits have finally got their groove on, heralding the ‘sad’ demise of novelty songs such as Agadoo, in favour of hip hop and rock tracks.
The top three tracks chosen by betrothed users of the social music service prove it’s no longer about romance on the dance floor. The Black Eyed Peas - I Gotta Feeling took top spot, Kings of Leon – Sex on Fire was the second most popular and perhaps most surprisingly, The Killers – Mr Brightside, a song about relationship paranoia and cheating, came third. Stevie Wonder’s floor-filler Superstition and Abba’s party track Dancing Queen did make the top five but, romantic crooners such as Celine Dion and Mariah Carey, often considered standard fodder for any wedding disco, don’t get a look in.
