Washington Post Style writer Chris Richards never wants to hear Beyonce’s “All the Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)” at a wedding reception ever again. He calls the song “a sour lover’s salvo that links matrimony with guilty obligation.”


But now look at the poll alongside the article. Here it is, verbatim:

At your wedding, would you play:

  • “Single Ladies”
  • “International Players Anthem”
  • Both
  • Neither


So what’s wrong with that?

My answer: It assumes you will have (and want) a wedding.
