Forget the vows, getting down on the the dance floor with friends and family is essential to a good wedding. I labored over my playlist for weeks to make sure there was something for everyone; if you’re getting started on yours, you’re in luck — NY-based DJ Said the Rabbit is sharing his picks for the 10 best get-the-party-started songs, many of which I can personally attest to:
“Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough,” by Michael Jackson: “An MJ classic, you can never go wrong with this one,” says the Rabbit.
“Brick House,” by Commodores: “This is one that everyone can dance to and sing along with.”
“Lady (Hear Me Tonight),” by Modjo: “A great song with a funky upbeat tempo.”
“Beggin'” by Madcon: “One of my all time favorite party songs.”
“Call Me Up (GRVRBBRS Remix)” by Chromeo: “A great remix of an already great song.”
“Anyway,” by Duck Sauce: “Something to play to get everybody really moving.”
“Praise You,” by Fatboy Slim: “A great beat that’ll get everyone up.”
“Homecoming (DiscoTech Remix),” by Kanye West: “A song to get the party jumping.”
“Kiss,” by Prince: “A classic song for any wedding party.”
“P.Y.T. (Marquis Remix)” by Michael Jackson: “Because every girl loves being a pretty young thing.”
