What Types of Music Are Popular With All Age Groups?


Your best bet is to request classic songs that are clean and don’t require silly dances. Select some popular hits of the last several decades to ensure that everyone gets a taste of their preferred music genre, even if for a short while. Also, beware of giving your DJ full control of the playlist. Provide him with a list of hits you'd love to hear, along with a do-not-play list of songs you'd rather skip.

Some types of tunes that usually go over well with everyone include:
Standards -- The "cool" factor of guys like Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, and Michael Buble is pretty much ageless.

Movie Soundtracks -- Popular movies spawn equally popular music, so putting a few Academy Award-worthy songs on your playlist is a safe bet.

Oldies -- Hits from the '50s and '60s get people on their feet every time.
