Equality vs. Excellence

MIKE: “There will be no, I repeat NO ‘YMCA’ at our wedding.” These were the words of Dana, who doesn’t believe YMCA reflects her sensibility or her taste in music. “It’s just so overplayed.”

True, but it’s also the ONLY dance number that will get all the relatives on the floor. Anyone, even Grandma Bette, can twist her arms into a Y an M a C and an A – no matter how many cocktails she’s had.

So there’s the rub. In the interest of equity, do we sink to the lowest common denominator and accommodate those guests who have the least dance ability, the worst taste and are the most drunk? Perhaps.
