I've added some comments to my list of TOP 10 DANCEFLOOR FILLERS, this is mainly for weddings but I think you could put these songs in any party and they would go down a hit! 


  1. Michael Jackson - Billie Jean: This is a no brainer - your grandparents love it, your uncle loves it, your cousin loves it, your mom loves it, your friends love it, little kids love it - it's a cross generational one of a kind song that will never die. As soon as that infamous bassline kicks in, the dance floor explodes and there is always at least one person doing a moonwalk!

  2. Journey – Don’t Stop Believing: The best selling song of all time on iTunes. Revitalized by Glee. Simple, catchy, cool. I've played this at school dances where every kid knows every lyric and I've played it at a St. Patrick's Day party where everyone has had a few drinks and have lost their voices at the end chorus. A stone cold classic.

  3. AC/DC - You Shook Me All Night Long: For all of the rockers who haven't yet hit the dance floor this song will get them out "guaranteed" plus you get added air guitar at no extra cost.

  4. Earth, Wind & Fire – September: This song has a touch of disco, a sing-along chorus and everyone knows it but isn't quite sure who sings it or what it's called. When the first line "Do you remember..." comes on, I always see a smile come across people's faces. If you only need to play one 70's/disco song in the night, this is it.

  5. Bon Jovi – Livin’ On A Prayer: A classic 80's fist-pumping-sing-along chorus with super cheesy lyrics and rock guitars about Tommy "used to work on the docks" & Gina "workin' for her man". Simply add alcohol to guests for extra entertainment value.

  6. Neil Diamond – Sweet Caroline: An end of the night classic, hands down - everyone knows this song and no matter how many times you hear it, it will induce total strangers to wrap their arms around each other and scream "Sweet Caroline bop ba ba" at the top of their lungs...

  7. Usher - Yeah: "[Usher:] Peace up! A Town Down! [Lil' Jon:] Yeah, (Yeah!) OK!" This tune recently got a new lease of life from "THE HANGOVER" and as soon as that intro comes on, people know that they have 4 minutes to throw their arms in the air, imitate Lil' Jon & get their swagger on.   

  8. Bob Sinclar - Love Generation: A house song wrapped in a pop song wrapped in a reggae song with a whistling chorus. Beautiful.

  9. Black Eyed Peas - I Gotta Feeling: The biggest song of the last few years - no contest! Nothing even comes close. It's a big, dumb, catchy Top 40 Song with production from DJ David Guetta that will be around for a long, long time. I've seen 80 year-olds rush to the dance floor when this song comes on, no joke. 

  10. George Michael - Faith: ...or insert any other great 80's tune (Footloose, Jessie's Girl, Just Can't Get Enough, etc) There is always a place for a catchy little 80's piece of cheese and some of them have completely stood the test of time.
