Songs that will make the crowd go wild


BRIDES magazine asked real brides what songs got their guests dancing at their weddings. Here are what some people said:

"The place came alive after the band left and someone put on a Journey CD. One guest did a cartwheel to 'Any Way You Want It,' and boxes and boxes of candy (he'd been 'collecting' favors) fell out of his pockets!" —Theresa D,. 38, Washington, DC

"When the bank played Justin Timberlake's 'Sexy Back,' my straitlaced, reserved Uncle Bob surprised us all by going nuts on the dance floor. He had moves I don't think anyone has seen before—or since." —Kelly L., 22, Peekskill, NY

"When Meat Loaf's 'Paradise By the Dashboard Light' started playing, the guys and girls on the dance floor lined up across from each other—completely unplanned—and each side sang it's part and totally got into character. It was so hilarious, people are still talking about it!" —Melissa D., 20, Gainseville, FL
