Which tune have you found works for you at the end of a wedding party. Besides the usual ones, ie, simply the best, time of my life, which tune gets everybody up to round off a good night. http://www.dj-forum.co.uk/html/emoticons/rolleyes.gif

I'm finding a lot of Bride and Grooms staying till the death lately and not wanting a traditional "last song" A couple of favorites have been D-Ream - Things can only get better & Yazz - the only way is up These played at the end of a dance section containing stuff like Ride on time / Everybody's Free / Groove is in the heart etc.

Leaving everyone on a high.

It depends on the evening, some recent ones:

 

New York, New York

I'll Tell me Ma

Irish Rover

Sweet Caroline

 

The one thing that they have in common is lyrics that everyone can sing along to and will still be singing as they leave the function - leave them on a high http://www.dj-forum.co.uk/html/emoticons/biggrin.gif

D.I.V.O.R.C.E???

 

Seriously, I find NY NY is what everyone hears at the end of a disco, and it is a little stale, so this calls for something different. I play Frank Sinatra - Fly me to the moon, everyone sings along to a quality tune!

 

Just before the last tune, I round up all the guests on the dancefloor, get them in a circle, put the B&G in the middle and play Dixie cups- chapel of love. That is also a great alternative to the arch with cliff routine.

I favour upbeat stuff to finish off with - Irish Rover is an excellent example, as is Rock'n'Roll Presley style or my personal fave Jerry Lee Lewis' "Great Balls fo Fire". If you've got 'them' in the palm of your hand then go for something very cheesey like Hokey Cokey. To be honest, you could end the night with Mrs Mills or Bobby Crush and they'd still dance.

 

Drunk people, you've gotta love 'em.

 

That said, I usually finish with the same song the B&G requested as their first dance. BOOOOORING!!!

I must admit, unless the client specifies, I always play slow tunes at the end of the night.

 

Ultimately, the venue wants to get rid of people once they've had their fun and playing something slow calms people and they then know it's time to go.

 

Otherwise you're stuck with the 'play one more mate' syndrome and let's be honest if your booked to a certain time, you're only paid to that time.

 

Who wants to work for free?

 

Having said that, it really depends on who the function is for.

 

Some customers (Rotary/Roundtable etc) like the old fashioned NYNY or You'll never walk alone.

 

My choice for a slowie at the end of the night? - Bit cliched, but Robbie and Angels.

 

After this I normally stick on a short play-out tune, which have recently been Terry and June, Animal Magic and The Theme from The Great Escape!

Unless specified by the client - I'll choose a track to reflect the overall mood of the gig!!!!!!!!!!

 

Used to finish on 'Python' and 'I could Be so Good For You', Hit The Road Jack, etc but have been using the Theme from 'THE PROFESSIONALS' for quite a while!

The re-action is always the same. http://www.dj-forum.co.uk/html/emoticons/smile.gif

Never had the confidence to play Jimmy Souls' "If you wanna be happy"

 

CHORUS:

If you want to be happy for the rest of your life

Never make a pretty woman your wife

so for my personal point of view

Get an ugly girl to marry you

 

A pretty woman makes her husband look small

And very often causes his downfall

As soon as he marries her then she starts

Doing the things that will break his heart

But if you make an ugly woman your wife

Then you will be happy for the rest of your life

An ugly woman cooks meals on time

She'll always give you peace of mind

 

[Chorus]

 

So if your friends say you have no taste

Go ahead and marry anyway

Though her face is ugly her eyes don't match

Take it from me she's a better catch

 

[Chorus]

 

Say kid YES

I saw your wife the other day UH HUH

And she's ugly

HA HA BUT SHE SURE CAN COOK

 

[Chorus]

 

 

Do you think it would go down well?

Just clearing off duplicates from the laptop and came across Malcolm Roberts - May I have The Next Dream With You.

 

Think I might try this at the next one.

Quitting Smoking & Drinking doesn't make you live longer

 

It just feels like it.
