I am basically micro-managing the heck out of my playlist, so there will be ton of must plays, but the most must-playiest of all of my non-special dance songs is Talking Heads, Once in a Lifetime. It’s my parent’s song and would not normally get played at a wedding.

On ours?  Beach music!!!  Brown eyed girl (Jimmy Buffet’s version for my sister), Southern Cross, Jack Johnson, and a little reggae!

Our song we’ll dance to? 

“Can’t help Falling In Love”…originally by Elvis (and who was once a family friend) but the reggae version re-done by UB40!~

Definitely want Black Eyed Peas’ “I Gotta Feeling!” Best song ever!

I also want to play Chris Brown’s “Forever,” Outfield’s “I Don’t Wanna Lose Your Love” and Jay Sean’s “Down.”

We are straying from Top 40 and keeping the mix more with classic and modern dance rock. Must have Bowie, Michael Jackson, Gorillaz, Metric, Arctic Monkeys, Queen, and Blur.

1, 2 Step by Ciara.

my friends in highschool did a hip hop dance to that song and I was their ‘manager’ so i think it’d be great to see them all do it dressed up 😛

@trailmix:  I wanted to use that as our first dance song, but my Fiance vetoed it because he said it was too upbeat!  It’s staying on my must-play list though hehe.  I’m going to have the DJ play lots of stuff by Journey and other good 80’s stuff.

I have to say my must-not-play list is quite a bit longer.  Basically all the cliche’s are out, which will probably vex a lot of my guests.  I refuse to enter to “Eye of the Tiger” and I don’t want to hear “Sugar Pie Honey Bun” anywhere!  There are very few songs from the top 40’s that I’m willing to hear as well, but they are necessary to keep the guests dancing so I’ll live.

I am having a hard time figuring out our playlist because the dancing portion of our wedding is not actually at the reception, but the after party. I definitely want people to dance and have a great time (and get a little tipsy even!), but I don’t want it to be typical wedding reception music because its not a typical wedding reception. So, so far, no must plays… just a lot of “eh, that’s not really the right feel…” songs that we go back and forth on!

@daniellemybelle:  If you’re looking for late-night club kind of music for dancing, check out some of the trance-style mixes by DJ Tiesto, DJ Doboy, etc.  They take a lot of mainstream popular music and remix it with a beat.  Great for dancing!  Basically, the way you dance to this music is to jump up and down… that’s it.  O_o
