we choose "Closing Time"

At our wedding, about 75% of the guests had left by the last song and there wasn’t much dancing, just catching up.

We’re using Renee Olstead’s "Sunday Kind of Love" which definitely doesn’t meet the rock-out requirement! ๐Ÿ™‚

What about the Killers’ "Read My Mind" or the White Stripes "Fell in Love with a Girl"?

Time of your life by Green Day…not really a rock out song though. :oP

Two of our friends have played "Don’t Stop Believing" by Journey as their last song…we might too just because it has come to have some meaning within our group of friends. And it is a great song to rock out to!

Our last dance song will probably be "New York, New York" by Frank Sinatra. It has a special meaning to us and a lot of our friends so I think they would be excited to hear it as the final song. It would be a throwback to our college days ๐Ÿ™‚

"Into the Mystic" Van Morrison. Still one of my favorite memories of the day. Everyone was on the dance floor.

we did "Forever" by chris brown. When the song first came out, we both used to jam out to it… and then when I had to pick a last dance song — it seemed perfect, and it was!

Everyone was on the dance floor!! it was one of my favorite memories. and if you listen to the lyrics, it’s pretty perfect as a wedding last dance song! :p

We are prob going to play "The Long Day is Over" by Norah Jones, which will leave us on a slow note…..but I would suggest "Sweet Caroline" by Neil Diamond, I know a few other Bees played that as their last song and its so fun to have the crowd yelling the lyrics ๐Ÿ™‚ We might change it b/c "Sweet Caroline" was always the last song played in alot of the the bars we went to in college….guess its a good closing song ๐Ÿ™‚

We had "Time of My Life" from the Dirty Dancing soundtrack as someone else mentioned! It. was. awesome. My DJ played it on his own, which added to my feeling that he was indeed the best DJ ever, since it was exactly what I wanted to hear (but I couldn’t remember the name of the song to request it). Thanks for asking this question to remind me of how fun it was. ๐Ÿ™‚

I recommend picking the most fun song you know for your last song and not worrying about whether the lyrics are perfect for the occassion.

We went back and forth between "Head over Feet" by Alanis Morrisette and "Times Like These" by Foo Fighters as our first dance, and ended up with Times like These, and we figured we would throw in Head over Feet at one point.

Well, who would have thought, but the mr had requested Head over Feet be the last dance without me knowing, and when it came on it was the sweetest thing ever. So I say, let the mr surprise you!

We’re talking about using "Far Away" by Nickelback. Slow and pretty, with a lot of meaning for us.
