"Friends In Low Places" | Garth Brooks
'Friends In Low Places" is a song that transcends all wedding crowds, whether guests like country music or not.   Released back in the summer of 1990, "Friends In Low Places" would peak at #1 on the Hot Country chart, and become one of the most successful songs of Garth Brooks' career.

"Hey Ya" | Outkast
Modern brides and grooms still are putting Outkast on their wedding playlist, and for good reason. Outkast is hands down one of the best hip hop groups of the past 20 years. "Hey Ya" would be released in the fall of 2003 and would peak at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

"Turn Down For What" | DJ snake Feat. Lil Jon
 DJ Snake and Lil Jon get together and created quite the wedding banger! Released at the end of 2013, "Turn Down For What" would eventually peak at #4 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

 "Shout" | Isley Brothers
Some wedding DJs prefer to put this song into the full-time DO NOT PLAY category, but I'm not burned out on it, because I know it's a song that can be thrown on for most crowds to get the party started.  At 60 years old, it's one of the oldest songs in rotation at modern weddings today.

"Love Shack" | B52s
As the 80s came to a close, the B52s would release their album Cosmic Thing.  "Love Shack" would be the second single to be released from the album  and would peak at #3 on the Billboard Hot 100, and #1 on the Alternative Airplay chart.

"All Of Me" | John Legend
Back in the summer of 2013, John Legend would rock the wedding world with one of the most romantic songs to be released in a very long time.  Weddings throughout 2014 would have this song on their playlists.  By May of 2014, the song would peak at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

"Yeah" | Usher / Ludacris
Back in 2004, Usher would join forces with Lil Jon and Ludacris for Yeah!.  The song would hit Number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and not leave the top for 3 months. "Yeah!" would become one of the most popular wedding requests of the 2000s.

"Brown Eyed Girl" | Van Morrison
Released just in time for the summer of 1967, this signature song by Van Morrison is still one of the most popular songs from the 60s. You guessed it! "Brown Eyed Girl" can be placed into Wedding Playlist Gold category.  The song would peak at #10 on the Hot 100.

"Sugar" | Maroon 5
The music video alone for "Sugar" should be watched by every bride and groom to get them excited about their upcoming wedding reception. "Sugar" became one of the most requested songs of 2015.  "Sugar" has become a big request for the cake cutting song.

'Who cares baby, I think I wanna marry you...." popular lyrics from Bruno Marrs. Released in the summer of 2011,  "Marry You" would barely break into the Hot 100, but peak at #11 on the UK singles charts.

"Cha Cha Slide" | Mr C. The Slide Man 
Back in the summer of 2000, DJ Casper would release the Cha Cha Slide. The song would not chart well on the Billboard Hot 100, but would make it all the way to Number 1 on the UK singles chart. 

  "Livin On A Prayer" | Bon Jovi
Bon Jovi's second time around hitting #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 would become their signature song. I'm not sure if it's true, but I heard the song is the unofficial state song of New Jersey. I've worked with a lot of brides from New Jersey and this has been at the top of their request list. For more of The Best 80s Rock Song Ideas For Your Wedding Plsylist. <----Click over to this link.

It would become one of the greatest selling albums of all time at over 50 million sold.  "You Shook Me All Noight" would be the first single to be released and despite it's peak #35 position on the Hot 100, it remains one of the band's most requested songs at weddings.

It's still frightening that Whitney Houston is no longer with us today, but her signature song is one of the most requested songs by modern brides and grooms today. "I Wanna Dance With Somebody" would be released in the summer of 1987 and become one a #1 song on the Hot 100 for Whitney Houston.  For more of the best music from 1987, <----Click this link.

Even though this song only managed at dismal #94 position on the Billboard Hot 100, it remains one of the most requested line dance songs today.

When I first saw the music video for "Thinking Out Loud", I not only knew that Ed Sheeran had an enormous hit on his hands, but I also knew that the song would become one of those first dance songs that a lot of modern brides and grooms would request in the months after it's release. Released in September of 2014, the song would peak at #2 on the Billboard Hot 100.

"Cupid Shuffle" | Cupid
Released in 2007, this line dance would remain popular for the next several years, but a lot of my recent clients have opted to keep it off thewir wedding playlist.

"Don't Stop Believin" | Journey
This classic Journey song is one of those songs that wedding DJs will most likely throw on toward the end of the night.   Don't let the #9 peak position on the Billboard Hot 100, as this song remains one of the most requested today.

"Uptown Funk" has the rare distinction of becoming a recurrent wedding song since it's release. It's a song that still garners attention when it's thrown on at a wedding.  For more information about The Most Popular Recurrent Songs On Wedidng Playlists. <--Click HERE now
