September Poll Results are in...

...and the verdict is: You hate most of these songs. Good for you! Way to break free!

I developed a complicated (not really) scale and awesome (to me) scoring system where all the "love its" got 4 points, the "tolerate its" got 3, the "hate its" got 2 points, and the "never heard its" got 1 point each. Then I added up each song's "score." Then based on the scale I developed for what each score means (I can't tell you how I did it...it's magic...magic that makes you fall asleep), I determined that you, as a collective:
  • Hate the Chicken Dance, Cha Cha Slide, Cotton-Eyed Joe, Macarena, and the Hokey Pokey
  • Tolerate the Electric Slide and the YMCA
  • Don't know Strokin' (neither do I ....thanks "The Knot" for putting a totally made up song on your "must play" list)
The one song that had incredibly interesting results: the YMCA. You all know the song, and 2 of you tolerate it. The rest of you are almost equally split between love it and hate it. Clearly a love/hate relationship going on there. Makes me wonder if those of you who hate it really do love it deep down. I know I couldn't decide, and I knew the answer wasn't going to be tolerate it. Huh.

And no, none of these were played at my and Jess's wedding. In fact, they were all on the "do not play" list (except for the YMCA. We had a special agreement with the DJ that if people kept on requesting this type of song, then she could play the YMCA as a sort of concession. Why the Y? Because it's the one we dislike the least -- AND because we were once the Village People for Halloween with some friends:

As you can see, I was the construction worker. My hat, which was made of the most flimsy hat-able material known to man, was labeled "hard hat." How do you top that? [see this month's poll].
Anyway, it didn't matter because much like you guys, no one requested these songs, which was just fantastic for us).
