THE 20 MOST POPULAR SONGS TO PLAY AT WEDDINGS [LIST]

A new study found that the BLACK EYED PEAS song “I Gotta Feeling” is now the most popular song to be played at weddings. To come up with a Top 20, the “researchers” looked at 78,000 wedding playlists on Spotify.  In general, they found that couples wanted more modern “party” songs, and fewer traditional, quieter love songs.

Here’s the list:

1.)  “I Gotta Feeling”,  The Black Eyed Peas  (2009)

2.)  “Sex on Fire”,  Kings of Leon  (2008)

3.)  “Mr. Brightside”,  The Killers  (2004)

4.)  “Superstition”,  Stevie Wonder  (1972)

5.)  “Dancing Queen”,  ABBA  (1976)

6.)  “Don’t Stop Believin'”,  Journey  (1981)

7.)  “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)”,  Beyoncé  (2008)

8.)  “White Wedding”,  Billy Idol  (1982)

9.)  “Hey Ya!”,  Outkast  (2003)

10.)  “Make You Feel My Love”,  Adele  (2008) . . . It was written by Bob Dylan.

11.)  “I’m Yours”,  Jason Mraz  (2008)

12.)  “Signed, Sealed and Delivered (I’m Yours)”,  Stevie Wonder  (1970)

13.)  “Blame It on the Boogie”,  Jackson 5  (1978)

14.)  “Crazy in Love”,  Beyoncé featuring Jay-Z  (2003)

15.)  “Let’s Stay Together”,  Al Green  (1971)

16.)  “Greatest Day”,  Take That  (2008) . . . This one’s a little “overly British.”

17.)  “I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)”,  The Proclaimers  (1993)  (???)

18.)  “You’re the First, the Last, My Everything”,  Barry White  (1974)

    I’m shocked that there’s not a single Frank Sinatra or Dean Martin song on the list! Also… for our wedding, we played Dirty Deeds by AC/DC during the garter toss.

  2. Michelle says:

    Thanks for this! I am getting married in 8 weeks, and I am putting some of these on my DO NOT PLAY list for the DJ. 🙂

    Chicken Dance

    • Trixie says:

      Not only the Chicken Dance, but every wedding I’ve ever been to did Cotton Eyed Joe, Electric Slide, The Train, and just a whole bunch of others.
