I get asked for song suggestions all the time and with us being halfway through the year I thought I would compile the top 10 songs that other couples are choosing as the final song of the night!
1/ TAKE THAT – NEVER FORGET
Such an awesome tune, and the most popular choice of Disco Fever couples. A great sing-a-long track!
2/ FRANK SINATRA – THEME FROM NEW YORK NEW YORK
This is probably one of the most popular end-of-night songs of all time and to be honest, I’ve only played this track one-time less than the Take That song above!
3/ BILL MEDLEY & JENNIFER WARNES – (I’VE HAD) THE TIME OF MY LIFE
Dirty Dancing is one of the greatest films of all time and this song is certainly iconic and is number 3 in my top 10!
4/ RANDY NEWMAN – YOU’VE GOT A FRIEND IN ME
Now, I’m not sure if there’s some kind of Toy Story revival going on but this song has appeared on the list of final songs for quite a few weddings this year already and as such, it finds itself at number 4 in the list!
5/ ETTA JAMES – AT LAST
Quite simply her signature song and the most popular version of it without a doubt.
6/ GREEN DAY – GOOD RIDDANCE (TIME OF YOUR LIFE)
You would think that a song about the anger someone felt when their girlfriend moved away to another part of the country wouldn’t be a great song choice but, on the contrary, it’s a fantastic tune and certainly raises the roof each time it’s played
7/ QUEEN – BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY
It’s the UK’s third best selling single of all time only topped by Band Aid and Elton John’s Candle In The Wind ’97 and is certainly a popular song choice for the last song of the night. The beautiful melodies at the beginning and end, and of course, that amazing middle section that has everyone jumping and leaping about with air guitars! A perfect choice!
8/ LOUIS ARMSTRONG – WE HAVE ALL THE TIME IN THE WORLD
This gorgeous track features in the 1969 Bond film, On Her Majesty’s Secret Service and is another sing-a-long classic.
9/ AMERICAN AUTHORS – BEST DAY OF MY LIFE
One of my own personal favourites, an upbeat track that just sounds perfect as the final song of the night.
10/ DON MCLEAN – AMERICAN PIE
A fantastic song with a sad underlying story about “the day the music died” – a reference to a plane crash back in 1959 that ended the lives of Buddy Holly, The Big Bopper and Ritchie Valens. That aside, it’s a great anthem to end your wedding reception and without doubt, the only version to play is the 8’30” full-length original!
I hope you enjoyed this list!
