Pissed uncle on the dance floor
« on: February 08, 2004, 03:44:56 PM »
Never posted on this Forum before, so here goes....

I'm getting married in May and am trying to think of a few classic dance floor fillers to suggest to the DJ at the reception.

My other half (to be) has entrusted me with this difficult task, when all she has done is organise the church, venue, invitations, flowers and food.

I am thinking of stuff that would appeal to a group of early 30 somethings, but cannot think of much  past "Come On Eileen" at the moment.

Unfortunately, I spent my formative years listening to the Butthole Surfers, Ministry and Slayer, and I know for a fact that "Jesus Built My Hot Rod" is unlikely to go down well.

any classics you can think of?

"All Night Long" by Lionel Ritchie.
Guaranteed to get most drunken 30-somethings throwing all sorts of bogus disco shapes on the dancefloor.

Indeed. I've got a plan where I take this song then mix a load of celebrity exercise videos over it. That doesn't mean I like the song however.

What you should do is play the usual variety of bland disco-cheese (get that Ultimate Cheese Party CD advertised by the Hamiltons for an 'ideal' selection), then about halfway through get him to play something by Aphex Twin or Squarepusher at full blast, and watch all the old people die in the blast radius as it moves along in a wave fashion as it takes out some pensioners.

"Groove is in The Heart"- Dee Lite is always a good un.

Also as mentioned in The Bridge chatroom - Whoops Upside Your Head - Accompanied by the sitting down and rowing ' dance.'

Also 'Dancing Queen' By Abba, for the pensioners.

Motorhead - Ace of Spades - or anything that will encourage very cringeworthy air guitar, actually probably Layla - Derek & The Dominoes Clapton.

You can guarantee that this, along with that Billy Ocean song that goes "Love really hurts without you" (which is almost certainly what it's called but I dunno fo sho) will always be played by yer traffic-light DJs at weddings/work dos/etc. which given their miserable subject matter always raises a chuckle at the table I will root myself to,  only to get up to go to the bar and the bog (why can't they give us drips and troughs on the way in?)

Whether you like it or not, you will also have to hear Robbie Williams' 'Angels' at some point, but don't despair for this has proven to be the best song in the world for changing the words to rude things and still making it scan and rhyme (shit, even Robbie himself couldn't resist a bit of smut with all that "flesh to my bones" business)

plenty of cheezy pop 'classics' urm the cheeky girls, fast food rockers and the like.
brittany spears 'hit me baby' to get the pissed aunites up showing there knickers.
abba
status quo-rocking all over the world
mud-tiger feet
and other classics i really cant think of at the moment.

Y.M.C.A

I've seen it happen, and had to leave the room, both to piss myself and go for a piss.
