One of the most popular questions a wedding DJ gets is: What’s the most played song overall? What’s the most requested first dance song?

Obviously this changes from year to year and even from summer to fall to winter.  So far wedding season 2012 has continued to see a strong presence by the boys of LMFAO and while they have several other hits like Sorry for Party Rocking and Sexy and I Know It, Party Rock Anthem is a must play for most and a dance floor “packer”! You can check it out here!

Surprising enough to this DJ however is the sudden rise of Carly Rae Jepsen and her addicting playful single “Call Me Maybe”! Just this past weekend it was requested several times and I actually had to cave and play it twice!  Early on and then as the final song of the night.  It takes a special song to get guys, girls and pretty much everyone else to dance like a fool and sing at the top of their lungs!  Haven’t heard of it?  Check it out here!

As always music is subjective and everyone has a lot of their own taste sprinkled in.  The new single “I Won’t Give Up” by Jason Mraz, has started to become the first dance song of the summer!  

For your country fans out there, Feel Like A  Rockstar by Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw as well as Dirt Road Anthem by Jason Aldean seem to be keeping people moving and two stepping when they are played.

For now I personally like the trend of music, lots of new stuff coming out and new sounds!  If you ever want to talk music there are a lot of us with wide musical taste here at Star Choice!  My current guilty pleasure song I will leave you with is the 2nd hit from the group FUN. – here it is!
