Upbeat Last Dance Song

Hey Knotties!

I'm looking for something upbeat and fun for our last dance. We don't usually listen to much of what is on current pop stations (although we've included a bit of tolerable songs so we can have something for everyone). Except no country, no offense country fans!

Here's a sample of our play list:
Journey, The Beatles, Queen, Sondre Lerche, Regina Spektor, Ben Harper, The Jackson 5, The Blues Brothers, Chris Brown

What is everyone doing for their last song? Any suggestions for us?

    Our last song is You and Me by Dave Matthews

    That's mine too! (You and Me by DMB) It fits because it is makes you think of going away together and growing together too. It doesn't hurt that this is the song that was playing when my fiance proposed at a DMB concert. :)

    We didn't plan a last dance, but when I DJ'd weddings, I'd often use Prince's "Let's Go Crazy" if the couple didn't pick something specific; people usually loved it. Or Billy Joel's "Piano Man" depending on their tastes...

    We're ending the night with "New York, New York" by the Reel Big Fish. It's a more upbeat rendition, and we got engaged in NYC, so it works well for us.

    I never knew people picked last songs! I guess whatever the DJ plays. Or American Pie is always a good one now that I think of it.

    We're using "The Time (Dirty Bit)" by Black Eyed Peas

    This is an old thread, but maybe you'll still read this...
    We are not using this for our last dance (our's will be slow), but I want to use it during the reception.  Note-I am a Twi-hard and this is from a twilight movie, but it's still a fun and appropriate song.
     Eclipse (All Yours) by Metric
