Time tested and proven to get EVERYBODY on the dance floor. As a result your guests will stay longer and the night will be memorable! People only remember the food and the party so make sure the music is great! Of course this top 10 wedding songs post is very subjective and could easily be swapped out with a different 10.
10. Kool & The Gang – Celebration
Everybody is there to celebrate right!? Of course they are so make sure this one gets it’s moment! As a matter of fact you’ll be smart to play this as your first dance song of the evening. Listen here.
9. Michael Jackson – Don’t Stop Till You Get Enough
Safe to say anything Michael Jackson will win over most attendees at every kind of wedding. Getting this played will indeed result in bums getting out of their seats! Listen here.
8. Calvin Harris – Feel So Close
Coming in at 8 is a much more current tune. Calvin Harris is universally loved around the world so %90 of your guests will dig it. In other words your sister, mom, dad & grandma. You’ll find Calvin on top 10 wedding songs playlists every time. Listen here.
6. ACDC – You Shook Me All Night Long
You absolutely have to give rock’n’roll it’s time to shine. Nothing screams rock’n’roll more so than ACDC. Tip: Play it 2/3 of the way through the evening. Don’t be alarmed when “that guy” takes off his tie and put’s it around his head. Standard protocol. Listen here.
5. Van Morrison – Brown Eyed Girl
Likely one of the most played songs at every wedding and definitely on all top 10 wedding songs lists. It has that timeless feel good vibe and everyone sings along. Just do it. Listen here.
4. Isley Brothers – Shout
Essential tune which has been producing magic on dance floors since 1959. The magic with this tune lies in the classic call & response and sing along elements. Everyone’s seen the “a little bit softer now, a little bit softer now…” moment as the whole dance floor get’s as low to the ground as possible only to spring up and “SHOUT!”. In other words it’s a must. Listen here.
3. Pharrell Williams – Happy
Nothing will make your guests happier than hearing happy. It’s an especially happy feel gooder! Even if you’re elderly guests are not able to hit the dance floor, their toes will be tapping. Happy days require happy music. Listen here.
2. Bruno Mars – Uptown Funk
Keeping things funky is always a win win. Nobody has more funk currently the Mr. Bruno Mars. Uptown Funk could easily be on top of the list as it will fill the floor every time. Not only will they come running, absolutely no one will leave the floor when it starts. That’s a fact. Listen here.
1. Journey – Don’t Stop Believin’
My last 16 years of dj’ing has led me to “believin” that every single person loves to belt out Journey’s Don’t Stop Believin’. Without fail, this song is the go to track to get people singing along. In all honesty it’s more of a fist pumper jump up and downer than a dancer but upon hearing that first piano note, everyone comes running. Listen here.
