Summer’s most anticipated event, ‘The Triple J Hottest 100 Day’, may have come and gone but there’s no doubt it has set the tone for the rest of your year. The eclectic countdown voted on by Australian (and overseas) listeners not only serves as a fantastic acknowledgement of the past year’s best beats, but doubles as an excellent shortlist to choose from for upcoming events. Weddings being no exception.
Don’t be fooled into thinking that the Triple J Hottest 100 is too ‘alternative’ or ‘indie’ for your family and friends; the countdown is full of gems suitable for any moment, from the bridal entrance to the reception’s inevitable dance battles.
CHATEAU - ANGUS AND JULIA STONE (#3)
Our favourite brother-sister duo are renowned for their stunning, simple and relaxed melodies. Chateau is the perfect bridal entrance song, with its swoon-worthy refrain “I don’t mind if you wanna go anywhere, I’ll take you there.”
GO BANG - PNAU (#7)
2018’s answer to their 2016 mega-hit Chameleon possesses Pnau’s signature nonsensical lyrics but seriously contagious groove factor. This song will get your guests on the dancefloor in no time.
FAKE MAGIC - PEKING DUK & ALUNAGEORGE (#12)
It’s bound to be a hit when you combine British hit-maker AlunaGeorge with Australia’s favourite DJ duo, Peking Duk.
REGULAR TOUCH - VERA BLUE (#15)
Vera Blue’s upbeat, electro-pop melody masks a sentiment similar to that of Beyonce’s ‘Single Ladies’ - “Now she’s alone dancing like nobody is home / Don’t need nobody that much, don’t need no regular touch.” Basically, gentlemen take a seat, this is one for the single ladies.
LET YOU DOWN - PEKING DUK FT. ICONA POP (#20)
You can play pretty much anything from Peking Duk’s discography and guarantee it will be a success with the younger crowd. If you have a large number of guests from the younger generation attending your wedding reception, this is sure to get a few feet moving.
FEEL IT STILL - PORTUGAL. THE MAN (#26)
Ask your Perth wedding DJ to throw on this quirky tune, it’s charming enough to please guests both young and old.
SLIDE - CALVIN HARRIS (#37)
Slide may be recycled regularly on both commercial and alternative radio, but that doesn’t make it any less of a smooth crowd-pleaser. Whether you’re a bride who’s into Britney Spears or Boo Seeka - a Perth wedding DJ can spin this into any custom wedding playlist.
LIFE GOES ON - E^ST (#63)
As your guests begin to tire and thin down from a long night of dancing, the dreamy and nostalgic ‘Life Goes On’ is the perfect tune to play as the night draws to a close.
ARTY BOY - FLIGHT FACILITIES FT. EMMA LOUISE (#99)
The flirtatious ‘Arty Boy’ just made it into the Triple J Hottest 100, so don’t let it escape your wedding playlist.
