The MOST REQUESTED wedding songs of 2022

24 May 2022

Ensure you've added these top tracks to your wedding playlist 

While a wedding's soundtrack should serve as a reflection of the happy couple, it should also appeal to the masses. That's why every wedding playlist should be filled with a wide array of genres to satisfy the tastes and ages of all guests. 

Gary Davies of Fizz & Groove has been a wedding DJ for more than 16 years, entertaining both large and small guest lists . He says: "I have seen artists and genres come and go. Every client I work with gets access to a playlist system, which gives me a great insight into what the average couple requests at their wedding."

From old school classics to more modern favourites, here is a rundown of the top ten requested songs that Gary has received this year. 

  1. Neil Diamond – Sweet Caroline
  2. The Killers – Mr Brightside
  3. WALK THE MOON – Shut Up and Dance
  4. ABBA – Dancing Queen
  5. Queen – Don’t Stop Me Now
  6. Toploader – Dancing in the Moonlight
  7. Spice Girls – Wannabe
  8. Earth, Wind & Fire – September
  9. Black Eyed Peas – I Gotta Feeling
  10. Arctic Monkeys – I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor

With music suited to each stage of the evening party, your wedding DJ will be able to guide and advise you in your choices.

Gary adds: "While Queen's Don't Stop Me Now is an absolute classic, played towards the end of the night and sending guests into a frenzy; Wannabe by the Spice Girls is a bride tribe favourite, and Earth, Wind & Fire's September is loved by young and old alike. As such, to keep your wedding dance floor full all night long, it is imperative to ensure your party playlist offers something for everyone."
