Last Music Monday, we shared 9 great picks to keep the party going strong at your corporate event or wedding reception. We asked readers to suggest their pick for #10. Read the original post here and then check out these suggestions from our readers!
1. Girls Just Want To Have Fun – Cyndi Lauper
The Tune: Cyndi Lauper’s breakthrough hit, Girls Just Want To Have Fun resonates with women of all ages and is a pop-culture legacy of the 80s. With the song’s contagious beat, Lauper’s eccentric moves, and lyrics that are begging to be sung in masses, this tune is a great pick for our list!
The Groove: Lauper offers plenty of inspiration in the video. Think side stepping with bold arm movements, or fanning your skirt while you sway. The beat offers a perfect opportunity for a train, which should only encourage guests to belt out the lyrics of this feminist anthem.
2. Play That Funky Music – Wild Cherry
The Tune: A true one-hit-wonder with a title inspired by the times. For a band that normally played hard rock, this funk rock song really hit a chord with fans, propelling the tune to the top of the charts.
The Groove: Thanks to our friend, David, for these suggested dance moves: Step side to side while nodding your head to the beat. Singing along only in anticipation of the guitar solo at which you stop dancing to play your air guitar.
2. Feel So Close To You – Calvin Harris
The Tune: A classic club thumper with wistful lyrics makes this a great choice to get people to hit the dance floor! Bonus points for another surefire singalong chorus. This is Indie meets Dance at its best. We predict Feel So Close To You is going to be a popular request this wedding season.
The Groove: This song has a great, rhythmic, repetitious beat so go with it! As long as your moving in some sort of bouncy fashion, you should be good!
Be sure to check out the intense dubstep remix of Feel So Close To You from Nero… here.
What are you planning on adding to your playlist to ensure your guests bust-a-move?
