That success is mostly the result of the considered attention and skill applied and not the simple change in selections....I was probably a typical jock who pulled up some Kenny-G-Like music and let it play, thinking it was just filler music...I've since then went to a more tailored approach, getting the couples involved if they choose, in creating a more client-specific rotation; varying the tempo throughout and ultimately bringing it up just prior to opening up the dance floor. It has been very successful.
My guess is on his HD...Nice list. Where did you find that Sonny and Cher song "I Love You More Than Yesterday"?
Oddly, it looks like I have the Kenny Rogers version of that song off his "Greatest Hits" album, but not the Sonny and Cher version. The S&C version is a bit better for weddings...If you have a soft spot for Sonny & Cher, their rendition of "All I Ever Need Is You" is equally lyrically perfect for wedding programming.

A song I have added is "Lovesong" by Adele.... great cover of the Cure song. (which my wife and I used at our wedding)

Chuck I did my first gig in about 12 or so years for step sons wedding. I really put some thought into dinner music as I find using too many slow songs makes it harder to get things started. I dropped in songs like Jump (VAN HALEN) the Paul Anka version and other uptempo songs. To me this lifted the mood a great deal.I know this has been talked about over and over, but lately I have been playing more upbeat/mid tempo dinner and cocktail songs.
So what I would like is to have people add just like 3 songs that are upbeat that you play during dinner and or cocktails.
Cantaloop - US3
Mas Que Nada - Black Eyed Peas
B-52s - Follow Your Bliss
Desperation Samba - Jimmy Buffet
