Planning a wedding is a stressful time, not only do you have to sort the venue, photographer, rings and décor but you also need to make sure that everyone has a great time too.
Choosing the music to be played can be a daunting task, but thankfully online local services marketplace Bidvine has taken the stress out of it by surveying its 1,400 registered DJ’s to find out what songs will really get your guests onto the dance floor.
Here are the top ten songs which were voted the best for getting people on the dance floor:
- I Want You Back – Jackson 5 (1969)
- Don’t Stop Me Now – Queen (1978)
- Mr. Brightside – The Killers (2004)
- Chelsea Dagger – The Fratellis (2006)
- Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough – Michael Jackson (1979)
- Everybody Get Up – Five (1998)
- Little Less Conversation – Junkie XL & Elvis Presley (Remixed 2002)
- Happy – Pharrell Williams (2013)
- Uptown Funk – Bruno Mars (2014)
- Let’s Dance – David Bowie (1983)
Bidvine also asked DJs what they thought the worst wedding songs were:
- Gold Digger – Kanye West (2005)
- Another One Bites The Dust – Queen (1980)
- Killing In The Name – Rage Against The Machine (1991)
- You’ve Lost That Loving Feeling – The Righteous Brothers (1986)
- Smack That – Akon ft. Eminem (2006)
When planning the entertainment for your wedding there are a few things to consider. What age group are you guests? People in their 20s are more likely to prefer newer music to those who are in their 70s, but Soul music is generally a hit with most age groups.
Also avoid having songs with explicit lyrics so as not to offend anyone and try to keep slow songs spread out in the playlist to stop lulls on the dancefloor. Try to get the special dances done at the beginning of the evening so that people can get on partying.
