What Types of Music Are Popular With All Age Groups?

A

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.
