Wedding Music

It's that time....I have to submit my info to the DJ tonight before I head out to my bachelorette party sooo I'm wondering:

Any suggestions for great songs at the wedding?  Anything that gets you moving?  Anything that you simply can't stand?

    Great party songs...

    Junior Senior - Move Your Body
    Red Hot Chili Peppers - Love Rollercoaster (<- reception went nuts!)
    Michael Jackson - Don't Stop Til You Get Enough
    Dee Lite - Groove Is In the Heart
    The Cure - Just Like Heaven
    Violent Femmes - Blister in the Sun
    The Contours - Do You Love Me (Now That I Can Dance)?
    Outkast - Hey Ya!
    Queen - Crazy Little Thing Called Love
    Lonely Island - I'm On A Boat (what?!? I had to!)

    Aretha Franklin's "You Send Me" is kinda slow, but still upbeat. It brought the older couples out on the floor, which was really, really sweet to watch. :)

    Beautiful slow songs...

    Droge & Summers Blend - Two of the Lucky Ones
    Marc Cohn - True Companion
    Peter Bradley Adams - Under My Skin (<- THIS ONE. CHECK IT OUT. We had like, 10 people ask us about that one after the wedding, wanting to know what the song was so they could download it)

    You need at least one drunken singalong song...ours is always "Friends in Low Places". :)

    The only time I really get turned off at weddings is when they play a ton of the same thing - all country, all hip-hop, whatever. I like a good solid mix of everything, because at some point, that means everyone will dance.

    Exciting!!! I hate line dance songs... They are over done and they annoy me. But, if you love them, have them!

    We are the Champions by Queen.  I think it is a must now.  Everyone knows that song.  Plus Paige you’re a Canadian.  You must love hockey!!! 


    I also love Frank Sinatra (Just the Way You look tonight) and Swing songs (Big Bad Voodoo Daddy is my favorite artist).

    All Canadians love hockey.  Not liking hockey is the only offense punishable by death up here.

    Another one that got huge roars at our reception was Jace Everett's "Bad Things"...we used it for our garter toss, but they have a dance remix that you could probably use.

    leia - why don't you see if your DJ has a mashup of both versions? That would be friggin awesome, and I bet you anything someone has done a mashup.

    ...and, ps, as soon as I get my murried bio up, it'll have our playlist in it.
