Older stuff hey..

How about “Can You Feel It” by the Jacksons?

“ABC”

“Love Shack”

“Twist and Shout”

They are all fairly easy to dance to so some of the older guests can join in as well

@seAprilbride:  For our entrance song we had “Glad You Came” by The Wanted. I know it’s a pop song but it seemed fitting for the introductions at the reception.

People really seemed to like the group dances and couples seemed to prefer to dance to slower tunes.

This might sound cheesy but one of my favorite 80’s songs is “I Can Dream About You” by Dan Hartman. It might not be exactly a wedding type song but it always makes me wanna dance. I like “Lucky Star” by Madonna and “Wake Me Up” by Wham. These definitely might considered cheesy by some but they’re fun. “Something About You” by Level 42 might be a good sond for a wedding and Spandeau Ballet’s “True” is another good 80’s tune.

there are tons of wedding music lists online! Just google them, and they will pop up. I spent an evening going over them and narrowed my list down. Have fun with it!

@seAprilbride:   Hmm.. I would not be down with a DJ who just played what he felt like at the moment, unless he was a nationally known DJ with an awesome reputation. But hey, if you are cool with it, then you might want to come up with a list of songs you are comfortable with (though you are essentially doing the work for him by creating a playlist).

Anyway, google “commonly played wedding reception songs,” you will get a good list and ideas.

For example:

1 ELECTRIC SLIDE MARCIA GRIFFITHS

2 YMCA VILLAGE PEOPLE

3 CHA CHA SLIDE DJ CASPER

4 LOVE SHACK B-52’S

5 GET THE PARTY STARTED PINK

6 AMAZED LONESTAR

7 BROWN EYED GIRL VAN MORRISON

8 OLD TIME ROCK AND ROLL BOB SEGER

9 (YOU SHOOK ME) ALL NIGHT LONG AC/DC

10 CELEBRATION KOOL & THE GANG

And there are 190 more here:
