@EMCasey: So you want old music? I’m in my 40s so I can suggest 70s/80s songs e.g.
Don’t Stop (Fleetwood Mac); You’re my best friend (Queen); Crazy Little thing called love (Queen again); Modern Love (David Bowie); Beat It (Michael Jackson), are ones which come to mind. Am I on the right track?
Are you talking about a specific dance (like your first dance) or ust generic usic during the reception. If you have a DJ, I’d just let them handle it. It’s their job. They know how to get people to dance.
I don’t want the DJ to pick anything, I want to pick the music. I am speaking about fast and fun music that gets people out on the dance floor like ‘We Are Family’ and ‘ Run Around Sue’ type stuff. Does anyone have any suggestions? 🙂
@EMCasey: Reet Petite by Jackie Wilson and Mustang Sally are fun older songs. Satisfaction by the Rolling Stones. Reach Out…by the Four Tops, or maybe it’s the Temptations. Love Really Hurts Without You. Im so Excited or Jump by the Pointer Sisters. Uptown Girl by Billy Joel. Dont Stop Believing by Journey. Africa by Toto. From the 90s I like Sunshine after the Rain, Cotton Eye Joe, Ice Ice Baby, Hammertime C’est la Vie etv for some cheesy fun.
December 63 Frankie Vallie is always a good one. Smashmouth, September Earth Wind and Fire, Imgin Pop, Katrina and the Waves, Journey, there are so many that aren’t top 40 but Iam having a hard time with “within the last 10 years lol! We arent playing anything like that either but a few very current very fast dance songs.
