The 20 Happiest Songs To Play At Your Wedding

March 18, 2013 by Pauline Millard

A first dance with your new hubs is great, but you want people to stay on the dance floor. One bad song can send everyone to the bar, never to return again.

There are songs we all know you should never play at your wedding: The Chicken Dance, The Macarena, etc.  It’s also good to stay away from heavy metal, gangsta rap and, according to DJs, Dave Matthews. (You can’t really dance to it.) You’re looking for songs that appeal to everyone, from your college friends to your ancient Aunt Agnes.

We came up  with 20 songs — both classic and modern — that will get everyone on the dance floor and keep them there. Hand this list to your DJ or rock out on own your here. (Playlist opens in Spotify.)

1. “Celebration,” by Kool & The Gang

2. “Good Feeling,” by Flo Rida

3. “I Gotta Feeling,” by The Black Eyed Peas

4. “Brown Eyed Girl,” by Van Morrison

5. “Dynamite,” by Taio Cruz

6. “Crazy Little Thing Called Love,” by Queen

7. “Zoot Suit Riot,” By Cherry Poppin’ Daddies

8. “Let’s Groove,” by Earth, Wind & Fire

9. “What Makes You Beautiful,” by One Direction

10. “Freedom ’90,” by George Michael

11. “ABC,” by The Jackson 5

12. “Marry You,” by Bruno Mars

13. “I Wanna Dance With Somebody,” by Whitney Houston

14. “Bust A Move,” by Young MC

15. “Love Shack,” by The B-52’s

16. “Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It),” by Beyonce

17. “Pon De Replay,” by Rihanna
