“Livin’ On A Prayer” by: Bon Jovi
Have you ever heard this song at a party and not had everyone chime in? I’m pretty sure this could start playing in a silent library and people would start singing the lyrics. It’s that catchy, and it’s sure to get everyone of all ages out onto the dance floor.
“Crazy Little Thing Called Love” by: Queen
The lyrics to this song are especially appropriate for a newly married couple. Plus, if you’re planning on having an 80s playlist at your wedding, there’s no way you can leave out Queen.
“Beat It” by: Michael Jackson
Get out your white gloves, red leather jacket and dancing shoes for this iconic 80s tune. The King of Pop has to be played at least once. And let’s be honest, very few of Michael Jackson’s songs aren’t catchy. It’s hard not to tap your toe to this tune.
“Born in the USA” by: Bruce Springsteen
If you’re having a Fourth of July wedding, don’t leave this track off of your list. It’s festive and it will keep the party rolling.
“Bust a Move” by: Young MC
Even if the only words you know to this one are “bust a move,” it’s OK. The beat alone is enough to make it a hit.
“Don’t Stop Believin” by: Journey
When it comes to popular 80s songs, I think it’s fairly safe to say that this one takes the cake. There have been many modern remakes, but nobody does it like Journey. As soon as your guests hear the first 5 seconds of this song, they’ll be racing to the dance floor and belting out the lyrics.
“Footloose” by: Kenny Loggins
If a few drinks haven’t already gotten you footloose, this 80s favorite will.
“Girls Just Want to Have Fun” by: Cyndi Lauper
This song is definitely for all those girls out there – especially for the bridal party. Because after all that hard work of planning a wedding, well, girls just want to have fun.
“I Wanna Dance With Somebody” by: Whitney Houston
Don’t worry, we didn’t forget about Whitney. And the chorus to this song probably describes how many people are feeling on your big day!
