However having your Pittsburgh Wedding DJ play one or two of these songs just doesn't bring about the intensity and energy all by themselves. It's specific songs, played at the right time and uilding the anticipation which ultimately lands the majority of the remaining guests huddled around the bride and groom that makes areception the best it can be. These create those awesome memories captured by your wedding photographer that you will treasure forever.

Starting with the least requested and played of the top 100 sing-along songs, all the way through to the most sought after and best sing-along songs ever. No fair peaking ahead.
