Top 10 ~ 80's Dance Songs

One of the very first things that I learned when I started DJ'ing weddings was that 80's dance music is almost always a major hit on the dance floor! ~ When you have an audience with a wide variety of backgrounds made up of several different generations of people, knowing your music history is definitely important.  Knowing what songs to play when & how to read your crowd is critical.  I almost always play Billie Jean first out of this list.  At 117 BPM Billie Jean mixes perfectly into Into The Groove at 116 BPM & is a great way to get any wedding reception started!
