  |  By Roseanne Dela Rosa

Can’t narrow down your wedding reception song list? How about playing a modern tune? By now, most of you have heard of LMFAO’s top hit 'Party Rock Anthem' (Hot 100 Billboard’s number one song this week)–and you’re either in the ‘love it’ or ‘hate it’ category. But, whatever group you belong to, you must admit, it’s catchy and definitely a song that will get your guests (yes even the older generation) onto the dance floor. For those of you that haven’t heard it, check the video above.

Top 5 Most Requested Songs for Summer 2011 We spoke to one of Toronto’s most popular wedding DJs, Michael Coombs, owner of Prodigy Entertainment, about the hottest wedding songs of the summer. Given the upbeat tempo of each tune below, let’s just say we weren’t surprised to see that these five were the most requested:

‘Party Rock Anthem’ by LMFAO

‘Give Me Everything’ by Pitbull

‘Hello’ by Martin Solveig & Dragonette

Top 5 Classic Songs Still Requested Today But, what’s a reception list without some oldies? “I’m finding that I’m playing more and more top 40 at weddings than I ever did. Yet, these five feel good songs still get strong play because of their amazing hooks and melodies. How can you not want to dance to these tracks?” Coombs exclaims.

‘Shook Me All Night Long’ by AC/DC

‘Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough’ by Michael Jackson

‘Home For A Rest’ by Spirit of the West

‘Don’t Stop Believing’ by Journey

‘Livin’ On A Prayer’ by Bon Jovi

“The songs above are great party songs that stretch across generations, that everyone knows the words to and when you have 100 of your closest friends and family on the dance floor, these are the songs you want on,” Coombs concludes.

Did any of these, or will any of these, songs make it to your own song list? If not, we’d love to hear what songs are topping your list!
