Hi girls

We're using our I-POD for the reception music. So far, so good, we have come up with a good selection for the night, right up until dancing music anyway. H2B has planned most of the dancing songs but it's mostly newer stuff.

Does anyone have any ideas for dancing music that will also appeal to older people? The only song we have so far is 'Night Fever' by the Bee Gees.

Any ideas would be much appreciated!

Thanks smile.gif

The Beatles' megamix (by Stars on 45 I think???!!) always seems to be popular. It goes for about 10 minutes and samples all their popular songs. For the real oldies, I love Earth Angel by the Penguins. It would be a beautiful song for a wedding too.
Don't forget those dodgy old ones like Nutbush and the Bus Stop! LOL!

Can we define oldies? huh.gif rolleyes.gif

"Night Fever" doesn't strike me as a song that would necessarily appeal to "oldies", it was a song from the 70s that I imagine appeals to young people and those who were young adults during that time.

Songs by Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Junior are timeless and I imagine would appeal more to an "older" crowd.
