Ten Songs from all Genres to Get Wedding Guests Dancing

Marta Block


No matter how confident you are in your choice of band or DJ, you can't help worrying. What if no one dances? What if the reception is a flop? There's no such thing as a definitive list of dance songs, there are too many kinds of music and too many kinds of dancing. But, we've found that these songs almost always do the trick! Some may be familiar, some may not be what you expect. They're listed in no particular order.

Ch Check it Out - Beastie Boys

Seven Nation Army - White Stripes

Walking on Sunshine - Katrina & the Waves

Let's Get it Started - Black Eyed Peas

Better Be Good to Me - Tina Turner

Bad Romance - Lady Gaga (OK, so not the most appropriate wedding song title)

Cupid Shuffle - Cupid

Don't Stop 'til You Get Enough - Michael Jackson

Crazy Little Thing Called Love - Dwight Yokam

New York, New York - Frank Sinatra
