Weddings are a splendid day of food, songs, dance and most of all celebration. When a happy couple ties the knot, it produces a wholesome day for everyone involved. And much of the fun around a wedding doesn’t come in the ceremony itself, but rather in the post wedding reception, where the food and dancing typically occurs.
With decisions over what types of entertainment to have, what the first dance should be, and what type of music to play, each and every couple has their own unique specifications for the musical selections.
On one hand, there are many favorites which are universally popular, but there are other tunes which are on many “do not play” lists for the married couple.
Of the most popular songs, many include dances to along with the selection, and many are ones you’ve certainly heard at a wedding before.
Often requested songs include:
- “The Twist” by Chubby Checker
- “Cupid Shuffle” by Cupid
- “Sweet Caroline” by Neil Diamond
- “Friends in Low Places” by Garth Brooks
- “Stayin’ Alive” by The Bee Gees
- “I Want You Back” by Jackson 5
- “I Got You (I Feel Good)” by James Brown
On the other hand, some couples may dislike the stereotypical songs and prefer their own selections. When it comes to banning songs, as many couples may request, songs accompanied by dancing are among the most often banned as well.
- The Chicken Dance
- “Cupid Shuffle” by Cupid
- “Macarena” by Los Del Rio
- “Cha-Cha Slide” by DJ Casper
- “YMCA” by Village People
- “Wobble” by VIC
- “Happy” by Pharell Williams
- “Shout” by the Isley Brothers
Of course, there is no consensus on what songs to play and which to ban at a wedding. It all comes down to the individual wishes of the married couple on their special day, and they can work with their DJ to cultivate a playlist which will not only excite them but all their guests as well.
Experienced DJs will know to go over a list with the couple beforehand and with thousands of songs in their musical libraries are certain to find something everyone can enjoy.
Whether dancing classics such as the Cupid Shuffle and Chicken Dance are thrilling to you or if they make you want to leave the party and never come back, a DJ can ensure that the right balance of songs is there.
