I write down every song I play at every wedding I DJ.  I have hundreds of these lists, going back to 2007.

It’s an OCD thing.  It’s an Ants-In-Pants thing.  It means I was a radio DJ making the switch to wedding DJ, slightly nervous and wanting to do a great job for my clients.

Making these wedding playlists turned out to be fabulous research because I would also indicate the reaction from the dance floor.  If the song cleared the floor, I wrote a downward arrow next to the song.  If the song kept the dance-floor going, I marked an upward arrow.  If the song PACKED the dance-floor, I marked two arrows.  Two arrows=EPIC!  (Above photo is a Two-arrow song from one of my weddings!!)

I still make these playlists each Saturday night, so I know what songs fill dance floors at weddings.  Here is a list of the Top 10 Floor-Filler songs for weddings for 2018:

  1. Uptown Funk – Bruno Mars
  2. CAN’T STOP THE FEELING – Justin Timberlake
  3. Dynamite – Taio Cruz
  4. I Want You Back/ABC/Billie Jean Mix – Michael Jackson
  5. Cupid Shuffle – Cupid
  6. I Want It That Way/Bye Bye Bye/Wannabe Mix – BSB/ N’Sync/Spice Girls
  7. Yeah – Usher
  8. Runaround Sue – Dion
  9. Build Me Up, Buttercup – Foundations
  10. Shout – Otis Day & The Knights
