Our Song List


Recommended Posts

We had a friend DJ for us so my hubby (who is very particular about music) picked almost our entire list.

I thought I would post it here in case anyone else wanted to borrow it.


I don't love all these songs but my hubby does and the ones that were played (our Dj had one CD player broke) were all danced to.

One song that our DJ played (must have been requested by a guest) was Sweet Caroline by Neil Diamond.. horrible song to try to dance to but we had so much fun with it.. Neil "Sweet Caroline" Guests "Da, Da , Da" "So good! So good! So good!" Fingers pointing in the air, people jumping up and down.. crazy!! Guess you had to be there.
