There are some classic songs that we all associate with a wedding dance floor. From all the ladies shouting out “Oh, Pretty Woman” by Roy Orbison to the in-laws getting down to one of The Beatles’ hits, there’s nothing wrong with busting out some of the classics.However, there is a way of fitting them into the playlist without making your music taste seem dated. Ask your Perth wedding DJ to play the remixed versions of all our beloved last century favourites to keep the party pumping, and Uncle Bernie’s vocal cords blaring. Here is a sample of some of the best remixes of classic wedding songs.
Jonas Blue ft. Dakota - Fast Car (Tracy Chapman)
This popular remake of a Tracy Chapman classic brought new life to the song. It’s sure to make your reception party get on their feet, especially the older guests who can relive a revived version of a song from their golden years.
Kygo - Sexual Healing (Marvin Gaye)
Nothing gets the crowd swaying with inappropriate hip thrusts more than Sexual Healing (apart from Nelly’s - It’s Hot in ‘Ere). Kygo’s remix samples the song, pairing it with an upbeat dance track to liven up this dancefloor classic.
Montmartre - Is This Love (Bob Marley & The Wailer)
Bob Marley’s songs are notorious for being relaxed, reggae anthems. Montmartre does this song justice with his remix - keeping true to the song, the DJ simply puts a modern spin on this classic. This is the perfect addition to the start of your wedding playlist to ease your guests onto the dancefloor.
De Hofnar & Sam Feldt - Big Love (Fleetwood Mac)
Fleetwood Mac is a staple on the wedding playlist. Whether one of the band’s tracks is making an appearance as the first dance or entrance song, this remix stays true to the trend.
Kayloix - Message in a Bottle (The Police)
Like Fleetwood Mac, The Police has long been considered a classic wedding song. If you’d like to update the outdated track, you can still get your Sting fix with this Kaylox remix
Spankox - Oh, Pretty Woman (Roy Orbison)
Most girls know this Roy Orbison classic, made favourite by every girl’s favourite nineties romcom of the same name. Your Perth wedding DJ will have your guests twisting away, dipping low and getting footloose over this remix.
Omega - Come Together (The Beatles)
The Beatles are one of the biggest bands in history, and this remix by Omega is definitely one for the history books as this Dj has created a genre-blending track that has taken this classic, dipped it in nineties grunge and sprinkled it with a little modern EDM.
