FiveThirtyEighty recently asked their readers to send in their wedding reception set lists. After compiling them all together, they were ranked by playlist and by artist. First, let’s look at the wedding playlist of the top 200 songs (see the complete list here).
As you can see, Hey Ya! by Outcast is the number one song. Michael Jackson’s Billie Jean ties at #7 with Get Lucky and Twist and Shout. He’s also listed at #11 with Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough, but ties again at #27 with PYT and at #86 with Thriller. Michael comes in again at #104 with Beat It. That’s not surprising, as we have a whole slew of Michael Jackson wedding dance videos to choose from.
But when it comes to the everyone’s favorite artist, Michael wins hands down. He appears again at #9 as a member of the Jackson 5.
We urge all you lovebirds out there to keep on riding the boogie as you share that beat of love!
