Discologic Reveal the 'Throwback' Party Songs Every Wedding Reception Needs
With so much choice out there
for your wedding music, it can be hard to settle on a theme, style and
individual song choices.
Award-winning DJ company
Discologic have been in the business for over 18 years and are experts when it
comes to putting together a legendary soundtrack that will keep your guests on
their feet all night long.
When we asked them what the most
popular music theme for weddings was, there was no question about it...
Apparently these days, everyone is asking for a ‘throwback’ soundtrack.
We’ll let the guys from
Discologic explain this one:
“Music is like a smell” (stick
with us on this one…)
"With so many of our brides
and grooms being aged between their late twenties to late thirties they all
grew up during what is now known as the ‘old-school period’ in terms of music.
“The memory of the first time
you heard your favourite track back in the day will be embedded in your memory
so when you hear it again, all of your happy memories come flooding back!”
So it makes perfect sense – why wouldn’t
you want the music you grew up partying to, to be played at your wedding?
Discologic shared with us the
top 10 throwback tunes for couples who want to re-live ‘the good old times’ on
their special day.
Show Me Love – Robin S
If this (massive) tune doesn’t
get everyone at your wedding on their feet then we’re not sure what will.
Guests who don’t get up and dance to this one need to leave, no one needs
friends like that in their life.
Sorry – Monsta Boy
Garage-loving couples will be
transported back to the best time of their lives with this song. It’s one of
those songs that you forget existed and then it comes on and you remember what
happiness really feels like – no exaggeration.
Return of the Mack – Mark Morrison
When it’s time to get the
wedding reception really moving, be sure to whack this track on. It’s the
perfect song to introduce the disco part of the evening and anyone can dance to
it – all it requires is a side step and a click of the fingers.
Turn Me On – Kevin Lyttle
This song is a world-famous
floor filler. Get it playing once people have had an hour or two to drink – we guarantee
your guests will be racing to the dance floor from the bar. It’s
also a great song to expose your guests’ true colours – you’ll be surprised what
Kevin Lyttle can do to some people!
Insomnia – Faithless
Whether you’re a raver today or
you were a raver 20 years ago, you'll be able to vibe with this song - it guarantees three things, a packed dance floor, all hands in the air and truly
dedicated voices chanting along to the words.
Just in Case – Jaheim
One for the couples, old and
new. It’s a ‘wrap your arms around each other and sway as one’ kind of song and
is a great choice to play after the first dance to get more and more people to
join you and your partner underneath the disco ball.
Dreamer – Livin Joy
“I’M A DREEEAAMMEERR-ERR-ERR-ERR”
Yeah – Usher
We have one question for you: Is
a wedding reception even a wedding reception if the DJ doesn’t play Usher? The
answer to that is no because this man is the king of R&B and the king of floor-fillers.
Another great thing about this song
is it’s super easy to sing along to, just say ‘yeah’ every now and then and you’ll have everyone fooled.
Imagine - Shola Ama
Here’s one that all the ladies at
your wedding will love. We all know that when Shola Ama comes on, it means it’s
time to wave your ’uh-huh’ finger around and bring the attitude – this isn’t a
wedding reception anymore, it’s a performance. *insert sassy girl emoji*
Tell Me it’s Real – K-Ci &
Fear not, the voices of velvet
(a.k.a K-Ci and JoJo) are here. Slowing it down and belting out a ballad with your closest
friends and family is the best way to end a wedding. A song
like this brings everyone together and is perfect for finishing off the night.
