April is the coolest month, as long as that’s when you’re having your awesome wedding. Our Chicago-area wedding DJs had some great chances to watch couples and their guests burn up the dance floor last month – but which songs were hottest?

Each Monday, I ask our Chicago-area wedding DJs the same question: Which songs killed it on your wedding dance floors this weekend? It seems the 90s were back in a big way this month, because this is how they answered for April 2017.

First, a few disclaimers:

  • This list is NOT scientific. If you want to know which songs are stastically popular across the country, there are plenty of other places to look. There are just our DJs’ memories of what happened with one particular group of guests at one particular event over the last few weeks. And what happened was, those guests partied down.
  • It’s not just what you play; it’s also when you play it. Some of the songs below might be terrible with a different crowd – or even with the same crowd, played at a different time of night. That’s what makes DJs are better than jukeboxes: They’ve learned to take your requests, read your dance floor, and then put your music in the right context to make it a party.

Here’s how we did that in April:
