    The song Lauren is talking about is "I Gotta Feeling" by The Black Eyed Peas, probably the song I would pick as well.

    You never know what will make people dance though.  Probably the most popular songs at my wedding were "Shake Your Groove Thing" and "Ho*ky Tonk Woman." (The stupid Knot made me edit that.)
  • Low!!! by Flo Rida
    Baby Birthday Ticker Ticker Baby Birthday Ticker Ticker
  • "Come On Eileen" by Dexy Midnight Runners is a classic. 
  • "Please dont stop the music" by Rhianna and "Dont stop believing" B Journery.......MUSTS at my wedding!
  • Ditto pp on anything Michael Jackson, his songs will always get the crowd moving. And I'm sure some girls will disagree.. but Lady Gaga.. whenever her songs come on at a club/bar everyone goes nuts and starts dancing.

    "Empire State of Mind" by Jay Z and Alicia Keys <3 it!
    "Where the Party At" by Jagged Edge
    "Crazy in Love" by Beyonce and Jay Z
  • Empire State of Mind by Jay-Z and Alicia Keys!!!!

  • We had all the couples join us on the dance floor & played "I got You Babe".

    We played alot of rat pack & swing stuff. But after all the formal stuff, guests just requested stuff. I think the YMCA got played as well as me witnessing my new husband & cousin reenacting the dance/fight sequence from Michael Jackson's "Beat It"...it was good & really funny. I think there was some funk/disco/70's stuff played too.

    Our DJ is a friend and we all worked Halloween Haunt at Knott's Berry Farm together and he plays a giant werewolf...so I danced with him to Werewolves of London.

  • This Charming Man by the Smiths! 
  • "Escape" by Enrique Iglesias
  • Daniel Beddingfield "If You're Not the One"
  • Key goal at least for me is to play at least a few songs that everyone knows. So play new music but dont forget the 80s or those precious oldies! Get a good range of songs for everyone to enjoy.

    Here are some you might be missing:

    Dashboard Lights by MeatLoaf
    YMCA
    Brown Eyed Girl
    Brick House
    Mony Mony.. idk the spelling on that.
    Electric Slide
    Escape (The Pina Colada Song)
    Please Don't Go - K.C. & The Sunshine Band
    Build me up Buttercup
    Bye Bye Ms American Pie
    Bennie & the Jets
    Play that Funky Music
    Baby Got Back
    Unbelievable
    Everybody's Free to Feel Good

    and you have enough other suggestions for modern music.
    Hope this helps!

    Best Wishes!!!

  • This is tough cause I love to dance and could dance to almost anything!

    Love shack
    Mustang Sally
    like some PP said, Lady Gaga, Michael Jackson
    For any country fans, I love a rainy night by Eddie Rabbit

    Also at my friends wedding they played the YMCA and the DJ had little costumes (mostly just hats I think) that her brothers and some grooms men wore to look like the village people, that was hystericle (sp?) and a big hit!
