What are some popular dance song ideas?

A Your wedding music should send your guests to the dance floor and keep them there. Dance-song options are endless and always changing, but there are a few ideas to get your friends (and family) out of their chairs.

  • Sing-along songs like “Build Me up Buttercup,” by The Foundations, “Love Shack,” by the B-52’s, Bon Jovi’s “Livin' on a Prayer,” and anything by Michael Jackson.
  • Newer songs, like Justin Timberlake hits, “Let’s Get It Started,” by the Black Eyed Peas, and “Shake It,” by Metro Station.
  • Slow songs, like “Can't Help Falling in Love,” by Elvis Presley, or “Come Away With Me,” by Norah Jones.
  • And if none of those work, try “You Should Be Dancing,” by the Bee Gees. They'll get the point.
