My friends always love dancing to “Home For a Rest” at weddings.  I’ve also requested Lady Gaga songs (if you’re looking for something current).  Plus, if you like them, group dance songs are really popular.  The most danced-to song at my wedding was “Follow the Leader” by Soca Boys!

I love Twist and Shout by the Beatles and Don’t Stop Believin’ by Journey.  Most people know them and like to sing and dance along.  I have friends that went crazy when I’m On a Boat played at a friend’s reception, which was hilarious.

Don’t stop believing- Journey (but then again, that is my all time favorite song!)

I also love Paradise by the dashboard light- meatloaf  At my sisters wedding the guys and girls did a non chearographed dance to this randomly and it was amazingly fun!!!

Groove is in the Heart- Dee-Lite

The Bomb- Pidgeon John (ALWAYS gets me dancing!!)

Safety Dance- Men Without Hats

I think if you go with fun songs people recognize, they will love to dance. I am looking for a lot of the oldies love songs in dance mixes (I have an awesome Regge mix of Goin’ to the Chapel).

At any wedding, or any event that has a DJ, I expect to hear Thriller!
