I’m looking for some suggestions for some good hip hop/top 40 style music to play at my dance, something like Replay, Sean Kingston and Forever Chris Brown – we have mostly an older generation, so most of our music is geared towards them – lots of 80’s music, but I want some for me and my friends.
Any good ideas?

Rihanna’s older stuff (aka not this new album), Janet Jackson?, your DJ should have a list of stuff, too. I’ll go through my ipod playlist and send post a list of clean-ish stuff I have tonight 🙂

haha I’m not using a DJ. My music is all off my laptop 🙂

We’re doing our music without a DJ too. We also have a mostly older guest list, with about a dozen or so 18-35 year olds in there. I posted about suggestions, but didn’t get any replies, so hopefully more people will post here with suggestions. I also have some songs that I’ve already put together, so I’ll post that once I get home and can access it from my laptop.
I don’t typically listen to music, so I have no idea what is popular or good to dance too, but I want to make sure there is music for myself and my friends to dance to. A wedding is just about the only time I dance.

If you get the radio edit version of anything you should be fine. usually the cursing and profanity’s omitted.

For me at least, I not only want to avoid cursing, but also the types of songs that have cursing in them. They tend to have themes of sex and violence that I don’t like. But I’m sure it’s worth a try for some songs.

You can never go wrong with JT, Usher (yeah), Britney Spears (I know, but it’s fun to dance to) and some Luda 🙂

yeah I know about radio edits… but I am not a big “Top 40” person, I listen to a lot of country music. Or hard rock like Breaking Benjamin. So I’m not really all that familiar with popular dance music, except the stuff on my 80’s list haha.
and not just avoiding sexual songs (my parents wouldn’t be so thrilled), but also songs heavy with negative content like drugs and drinking…
Any more suggestions?
I kinda like Rihanna, does she have any love songs? or fun dancing songs?

@Bella: If she is trying to avoid sexual connotations in her songs I don’t think “Right Round” would be so appropriate

ooops! I just copy and pasted some from my list. Sorry!

Low by Flo Rida is “clean”? I could never (and would never) play that in front of my g’ma and niece.
“She turned around and gave that big booty a smack (hey)…
… Them birthday cakes they stole the show
She was flexible professional
This is what I mean… I googled the lyrics to about 6 of the songs on that list (that Bella posted) and they are sexual and/or have profanity.
Toxic by Brittaney spears is sexual, and the pussycat dolls song wait a minute has this line in it… “Dropped down his jeans like I’m supposed to drop to my knees”
And from Chilg-A-Ling… “If you talk a lot, in your mouth you get socked” and “Let him hit it once, and watch the dude come back”. Disturbia by Rhianna sounds like she’s talking about a schizophrenic, definitely not wedding appropriate. Black Eyed Peas’ song Imma Be “Imma be rockin’ like this, wat
Y’all niggas wanna talk shit, but
Why don’t you put it on the blog, nigga?
Rockin’ like this my job, nigga”
