Get ready to get down: The ultimate in wedding playlists has arrived! To create it, Billboard asked DJs in 13 U.S. cities which tracks they spun the most at their clients' big days—plus a little editorial input (it is a music magazine, after all).


7 Things Wedding DJs Wish They Could Tell You

The songs span several decades, from '60s Frank Sinatra and dancey '80s disco to modern funk/pop and R&B/hip-hop. Expect nothing but the hits: You'll hear reception staples like "Twist and Shout" and "Celebrate Good Times," as well as new classics like "Shake it Off" and "Uptown Funk." DJs didn't forget about the first dance, either. Couples can choose to sway to slow songs like "Let's Stay Together" and "Thinking Out Loud."


Send the whole list over to your wedding DJ or band for a little inspiration, or press play while planning to put some pep in your wedding prep. Warning: You might have to take a few breaks to dance it out.
