As one of the top DJ and photo booth companies in the Austin and central Texas area, we provide music and entertainment for weddings, quinceaneras, parties, and events, every weekend, all year long. Around 80% of our events are weddings! So, we know a thing or two about weddings! :) There are many great DJ song lists out there. Simply doing a Google search for "top wedding songs" will bring you thousands of results! Over time, we've noticed that many of the songs in our list, below, always packed the dance floor at weddings! Of course every DJ has his/her own preferred "go-to" songs, and the top songs that are played at weddings and events may also vary by region.
Our job, as DJs, is to ensure that our clients and their guests have a great time! We know there are literally millions of songs out there and there may be some great songs that we left off the list, but these are the top songs that we frequently play at weddings. That being said, here is our list of the top 25 fun wedding reception songs that get people dancing!
Overall, we play all the music that our clients prefer or ask for, first. If they allow us to take requests, we'll play those songs, as well, if they fit with the client's preferences. Some clients may want only Country and Texas Country, while others may want only 90's, or only Top 40. We generally recommend that you have a variety of music, since your guests may all have different musical taste. The above songs usually pack the dance floor at weddings here in the Austin and central Texas area; however, these songs are great hits and should pack dance floors all over the country!

If you're planning a wedding, Quinceanera, party, or event, in 2018 or 2019, in the Austin, Texas area, or anywhere, chances are you've hired a DJ, added a photo booth, and maybe even some awesome uplighting, games, etc. If you haven't done all that, yet, what are you waiting for? :) Regardless of which entertainment options you choose, one thing is for sure, the music is definitely one of the most important factors in keeping your event or party fun and entertaining! By the way, we know some great DJs, if you're looking for a DJ! :)
Regardless of which DJ/DJ company you hire, be sure that they know the hit songs to play, to keep you and your guests dancing, all night! Here's a great list that you can use, which includes fun songs from a variety of genres! These are the most common hit songs we play for the Austin and central Texas region. Every region may have slightly different lists, but most lists should include many of the songs, below.
These are the top 200 songs of all time! It's really hard to keep it to just 200 songs, but we'll try our best. Keep in mind, this is based on what we play and the majority of the events we do, are weddings. For parties, you can still use the list, but perhaps not play some of the slower songs.
For a breakdown of different genres, visit our online music library. You'll find a better breakdown of genres, as well as key moment songs, in our "popular list" section. Also, since we're in Texas, we have to include a great list of Texas Country and Country songs for your event! Check out our 20 Great Texas Country Wedding Songs article, for great song ideas!

We first wrote this article, in December of 2017. We've updated it, now, since it's almost July of 2018. Some songs have moved way up, others have moved down, and even some have dropped off the list, entirely! Either way, this is a great list of songs and you can still tell your DJ to play these songs and feel free to tell them Austin's Best DJs helped you create this great list! :)
