Top 26 Wedding Songs from the 50’s and 60’s


You can’t forget the classics!

Nobody can deny that Ed Sheeran and Michael Buble have a few love songs worth playing on your wedding day, but you can’t keep your entire cocktail & reception soundtrack chalk full of contemporary tunes. Remember, weddings are supposed to inspire all of your guests to get out of their seats and dance!  A professional DJ knows that and know show to read a crowd to make that happen!

Our latest Mike Staff Productions playlist is to motivate people to take a spin around the dance floor to songs from ‘the good old days’ Billie Holiday, The Penguins and Stevie Wonder. Some are up beat, some are the perfect classic ballad, while others are perfect for sipping cocktails too!
