Let’s face it—weddings are as much a time to celebrate family coming together as they are to toast the newly married couple. While it’s expected that during the reception guests will see a father/daughter dance or even a mother/son dance, it's becoming more commonplace for siblings to get their own designated song to cut a rug to.

If you decide to pick a special song to dance with your sibling to, it's important to choose one that best represents your specific bond. If you feel like getting sentimental, a classic like Ben E. King’s “Stand By Me,” or Bill Withers’ “Lean On Me,” are solid picks. Or, if you’re just looking to have a good time, Black Eyed Peas “I Gotta Feeling,” or David Bowie’s “Let’s Dance,” are sure to get everyone ready to party.

Here are the 70 best sibling dance songs.
