Just so long as there's no "YMCA" or "I like big butts." Holy Moly, I am soooo sick of those at every wedding or other party I go to.

the last wedding I went to, the bride and groom danced to Leather & Lace. It was great. How about "Play That Funky Music White Boy" and "I Swear" by John Michael Montgomery.

If you want all generations to get up there, play a little swing music or 50's music. The older people will dance and the drunk young people will attempt to!

Put together by one of the best DJ companies in the DC area, so probably pretty helpful. (Click on "Sample Music List" to the left.)

The objective is to help guide you towards a way of eating that will make it easier to lose weight, give you more energy and help you feel better. It is free, easy to follow, and a little unusual and controversial. Most of all it is working. This link will take you to a blog post where you can download a FREE copy of the Cheat System Diet Cookbook! The Cheat System has also been turned into a major book to be published May 6th, 2014. According to Srini Pillay, MD, Harvard Medical School: "It works in a real way with how human psychology works...I love that it relates closely to how the brain likes to function... without crazy effort and with significant short-term gains."
