Whitney Houston, I Wanna Dance With Somebody.

I know it’s only one, but it’s a goody!  I will keep thinking 🙂  – I”m rubbish with this sort of thing.

I would want to hear some Frank Sinatra and Kay Starr’s “Side by Side” :). Oooh, and some Journey! That’s what got everyone on our dance floor.

Shout – Isley brothers (your older guests will like it b/c it’s older, and the younger crowd will think of Wedding Crashers)

Paradise City by Guns and Roses or Sweet Home Alabama by Lynyrd Skynyrd for your down home country folks.

Party Rock Anthem by LMFAO (not sure how PG-13 it is, but your younger crowd could love it) *music starts at 1:45   (ETA- Probably not appropriate lyrics, strike that)

Don’t Stop Believing by Journey. Always played, maybe overdone, but ALWAYS a singalong at the end of the night.

I second the vote for Party Rock Anthem by LMFAO, this song inspired our guests to start a danceoff that even my grandma participated in, it was hilarious! Actually reading the lyrics they sound bad, but when you’re listening to the song you don’t even understand most of those lines. Other songs that went over well that haven’t already been mentioned…

– Sweet Home Alabama

– Tonight Tonight by Hot Chelle Rae

– The Beatles in general…I prefer their older songs

– Sweet Caroline by Neil Diamond, right era for older guests but the younger ones love fist pumping and shouting along with parts of the chorus, haha.

Gosh I’m having trouble coming up with more, now that I’m looking at lyrics it seems I have lots of songs that aren’t totally clean… Michael Buble is a good chocie for all ages. And I’m also going to second the suggestion of Journey, people LOVE singing along to Don’t Stop Believing.
