Sexy Back for me and my friends.  Or Sweet Caroline.  Yeah, we’re strange.

For me, personally, Baby Got Back is a fave 🙂 but there are a few others:

-Many of the Barenaked Ladies songs
-Man (I feel like a woman), Shania Twain
-I’m a believer, Smashmouth cover-version
-Love Shack, B52
-Zoot Suit Riot, Cherry Poppin’ Daddies (or any of those random big-band, swing style pop songs that have randomly come out)
-Crazy In Love, Beyonce and Jay-Z

I have a must-play list for our d.j., and these songs are from it.

To get all generations on the dance floor, play "Dancing in September."

Somehow I can’t see Nana gettin’ down to "Sexy Back."

anything by ABBA especially Dancing Queen.  I also love anything 80s especially Madonna and Michael Jackson.

"I Want You Back," by The Jackson 5.  I always request it at weddings when people are slacking off on the dancing, and it inevitably helps 🙂

I agree that Michael Jackson always seems to work. But don’t forget about the little "Car Wash" ditty. I know it’s from way back, but it gets people moving. 🙂

Sweet Caroline – Neil Diamond is a good one and everybody knows how to dance to the YMCA.  I think most people like to dance to oldies because they know them and can have fun with them.

Great question!  These always seem to fill the floor

Michael Jackson "Billie Jean"

Violent Femmes "Blister in the Sun"

Madonna "Like a Prayer"  — at least it always seems to get the ladies dancing and singing in the bar.

Our wedding is going to be filled with oldies and 80s …

YMCA is great for pics!  But Baby Got Back is a favorite!
