What has just passed has been a truly unforgettable year. Many were the wedding parties that have seen us at the console, all special and different from each other; among the many, we remember, from our “virtual diary”, the one at Cantalupa (located in Brusaporto, near Bergamo) and the wedding at Corte del lago (in Limonta, near Bellagio, one of the most beautiful places in Italy). Before taking care of the music that characterized this 2017, we would like to thank all those who have supported us: spouses, locations, wedding planners and the collaborators of our ProfessionalWeddingDJ team. Let’s start the journey by remembering the artists who have disappeared over the last 12 months: the Americans Tom Petty, Chris Cornell, Joni Sledge of the disco band Sister Sledge and Al Jarreau (author of After All, a true hymn to the love between men and women).
The 2017, in any case, has been full of really interesting new hits, some of which will probably become classics. In particular, let’s take care of music for marriage, with the songs that more than others have characterized our parties (with special attention for the international wedding parties, which increasingly represent an important quote of our business).
Romantic songs for the first dance and for cutting the cake
Let’s start with the most romantic pieces that were most requested in this 2017 for the topical moments of the first dance, of the slow and the cutting of the cake. About the international repertoire, particularly appreciated in weddings with foreigners, we quote the sweet How Does a Moment Last Forever by Celine Dion (soundtrack of the movie The Beauty and the Beast) preferred by brides who opted for a fairytale wedding, and Sweet Creature by Harry Styles, ex-singer of One direction, and revelation of 2017, with a song with very romantic melodies and lyrics: Impossible to resist this declaration of love ….
But we are obliged to include in our review, one of the protagonists of the wedding parties of recent years, Ed Sheeran, who, with Thinking Out Loud (released in 2014) has had a huge success (and continues to do so)? In 2017, he return with Castle On The Hill and Perfect (in November), totalizing 457 million Youtube views. And also Shape of you was the protagonist, but for more animated moments (certainly not for a slow).
Among the Italian songs, made an impression Il Conforto by Tiziano Ferro and Carmen Consoli and, in this final year, Poetica by Cesare Cremonini and Fino all’imbrunire by Negramaro, which we will carry on also in 2018.
Songs for the entry of the couple and for dancing
For the songs most requested to accompany the entry of the spouses and for the dances of all the guests, these last 12 months have provided a lot of material. The success of Bruno Mars continues (do you remember “Marry You”, released in 2011?), with That’s what i like, a song that appeals to guests of all ages, perfect to start to dance, but also fantastic as a song for the entry of the bride and the groom. Also “Something Just Like This” by The Chainsmokers and Coldplay stands out among the most requested songs to underline the arrival of the spouses, thanks to the engaging rhythm and the romantic text. Also Parov Stelar and his All Night (a beautiful electroswing track) was among the most representative songs, which gave more feedback with the public.
Bob Sinclar and Martin Solveig still “rocks your wedding”
About house and dance music (generally more suitable for evening weddings with young people audience), the scene was dominated by the Swedish producers Axwell and Ingrosso (More Than You Know) and Avicii (Without You), and also the French artists have confirmed their “magic touch”, with a new proposal (Ofenbach with Katchi and Be Mine, really a great success), and the two “old glories” Bob Sinclar (with Til The Sun Rise Up) and Martin Solveig (All stars). We also mention, in this year’s end, the Purple disco machine, with the song “Devil In Me”, a classy funky song with a refined style, that we like to propose (and we will do in 2018) on wedding parties. We at ProfessionalWeddingDJ, in addition to the new succes, are used to provide a quality musical revival, to entertain with style spouses and guests! Always considering that every party is different from the other!
