Your article title obviously suggests that eternal classic by the Isley Brothers. I'd vouch for that and anything else they did.

Fun! Looking forward to adding something! We have a Spotify collaborative playlist for our Open Fire on Thursday Nights and it’s so fun to be like, “Cool song! Who added that?”

With a focus on filling the dance floor in celebration, and getting the kids and grandparents alike in on the action, I'm going more lively with three tracks: Shake it Off - Taylor Swift; Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It) - Beyonce; Hey Ya! - Outkast. Party anthems that get groove thangs in motion.

If you want to get the crowd dancing then John Paul Young's - Love Is In The Air is a must.

Great idea! I excitedly went to my wedding playlists (had one for dinner, cocktails, and dancing) and picked out some good ones/bangers:

At some point you have to play Alison Krauss’s version of “When You Say Nothing At All.” My wife and I chose it for our wedding song and there wasn’t a dry eye in the house. We’re still married 25 years later.

Keeper of the Stars- Tracy Byrd. If you went to any country weddings in the 90's, this was everywhere. Gorgeous lovely ballad.

If it was a relationship that started when the couple was young then Check Yes or No by George Strait is a classic.

For meme/dancing songs, Boot Scooting Boogie (Brooks and Dunn) and Bop (Dan Seals) are classic roll your eyes then join in the line dance songs.
