# 10. Eric Clapton Wonderful Tonight

Coming in at number 10 on our song list is Eric Clapton Wonderful Tonight. I’ve seen both positive and negative reviews for this tune. It is known as one the most powerful slow songs (other popular songs are Remember When & I Can’t Help Falling In Love with You), then there are some that think this song tends to get played too much. Personally I don’t mind this song and even catch myselft listening to it every now and then. Eric Clapton has talent & went on to start a successful career as a solo artist in the seventies. Some people just are not digging his solo style.

# 9. Sister Sledge We Are Family

The Sledge sisters are regarded as disco divas and this song comes in single digits at number nine on our list of top wedding songs. I feel neutral about this song and a majority of people at our weddings request this frequently. The sisters are vocal dynamites and the beginning chords for the song has trance like guitar work. If you have a sister, or female relatives that you like to call your sisters… then this song is your anthem. Simply put this is classic and timeless.

# 8. Etta James At Last

Etta ranks on our wedding list at number 8. This is considered one of the many common wedding slow songs. Family and friends from all generations can relate to the message of the song. It does a great job at grabbing your attention and putting you in a relaxing mood. Etta’s voice has a raspy yet warm fuzzy feeling to it. This would make a great addition to your playlist. Feel free to watch the video below to hear the song for yourself. This is soul at it’s best!

# 7. Abba Dancing Queen

Here is another disco song and it ranks number seven on our top 10 list. Abba has been known to be popular, however it has never been one of my personal favs. This dancey-pop Stockholm style, another #1 fabricated, which in my opinion I felt lacked something and generally droned on somewhat. ‘Dancing Queen’ has been referred to as an icon in itself, I guess I must not be in tune with the rest of the world. You can play it as your reception, I probably won’t play it at mine 🙂

# 6. KC & The Sunshine Band Get Down Tonight

Get Down on it is our highest ranking funk song making it at the 6 spot. Want to start a party train play this song. It has a energetic vibe that most songs don’t deliver. I know KC and the Sunshine Band have other songs that belong in the top 10 but I have to be picky. I vaguely remember this song been blasted in Burger King commercials recently. I guess BK has a thing for making you want to get down on it?

# 5 Def Leppard Pour Some Sugar On Me

Def Leppard Pour Some Sugar on Me makes the top five. This is your stereotypical awesome rockout song; and is played at a handful of parties because it a lot of people know it. If you consider yourself a fan of the 80s or big hair bands, then you’ve sung this song at the top of your lungs at one point or another. Click on the video below to see the original music video.

# 4. Van Morrison Brown Eyed Girl

Everybody loves Van Morrison, and he has tons of great hits. I must say that out of all his songs, Brown Eyed Girl is probably his most memorable. It has been played in a variety of movies and can be found on almost any jukebox. This melodic harmony would fit in the genre of bubble gum pop. Brown Eyed Girl is a summertime song and rightfully earns it’s place @ #4 on our top 10.

# 3. B-52s Love Shack

Okay, who has not attempted to karaoke this track? I would be lying to you if I said I did neither. For some generations, this song is hard to get played out. But this track is unique and buzzes with flair. The Love Shack actually has its own dance, how cool is that. So not only can you karaoke the song, but you can also do the dance at the same time! I think the dance is a trend for the younger generations. All I have to say is Tinnnnnn Rooooof……. rusted.

# 2. Justin Timberlake Sexy Back

Coming in second on our top wedding list is JT’s Sexy Back. Justin Timberlake has been in the in the music biz since the Mickey Mouse Club, and finally solidifies his single debut chart hit Sexy Back. Produced by Timbaland, this song has bassy riffs with processed vocals. People know this song when it is played and it’s okay in my book. Take it to the bridge!

# 1. ACDC You Shook Me All Night Long

ACDC You Shook Me All Night Long has always been a heavy hitter at receptions. Every knows it which makes it easily identifiable and danceable. You don’t even have to know how to dance to enjoy this song. These are just a couple of reasons why it makes the number 1 spot. All it takes is the first 4 guitar notes and people go nuts. ACDC has some awesome songs, but ‘Shook Me All Night Long’ is what they are well known for. Check out the clip below and see pictures of Angus Young tear that guitar up.
