Which ones jumped out at you?  And what are some songs that you have that we didnt?  We’re still working on fine tuning the list so Im curious to hear from tastes other than ours.

If you’re still looking for more – do you have a website?  We added a song suggestion box on our website, and we’ve been getting all sort of good ideas!

Otis Redding – These Arms of Mine, and ACDC – You Shook Me All Night Long – we went through the list the other night and couldn’t believe we’d forgotten those.

Keep a piece of paper or a notepad app on your phone handy for whenever something good pops in to your head or on the radio.

I haven’t compiled a definite list.  My problem is I HATE most modern music.  It seems all of my songs are at least 10 years old, so I’m having to pick and choose a few newer things to throw in there.  Whatever you do, make sure there is a good variety.  People want to dance, so make sure there are good songs for that.  Some popular favorites I’ve noticed from weddings this year are:

The Cupid Shuffle

Cha-cha slide

Electric slide

Bust a move (lol)


One wedding I attended had too much country music.  The bride and groom got mad that the guests were requesting popular dance hits, and ordered the DJ to stick to country.  Needless to say, that was a BORING wedding reception.  It’s okay to throw a country or slow song in now and then so that people can rest, but you want to make sure that it’s not a drag. 

Anytime I hear a good song, I go to my Wedding Music document on the computer and write it down.
