Top 5 Music Countdown: The Raconteurs + CSS + Feist = Alternative Wedding Party Songs!

Why is it that so many wedding parties drop the same wretched cliche reception songs like “Macarena” and “Brick House” and the godawful “Celebration” when you could so easily make a track list way more fun and original?! I don’t have the answer for you, but I do have a Top 5 Music Countdown of five alternative songs to rock at your next wedding party!

Get your money-saving codes while they’re HOT! Treat yourself to some new kicks or heck, buy a new pair of tennis rackets for you and your honey — just go to and use my awesome code AFTOP5FL and get 15% OFF any order!

Or if you’re a devoted shopper, go there and use my codes to get some fancy new rocker kicks! AFTOP515 to get 15% off any order! AFTOP520 for 20% off any order of $75 or more!

Alright, let’s do this.

Gotta get down and dirty with some hot Brazilian electro-rock music!
5. “Let’s Make Love and Listen to Death from Above” -CSScss

A little upbeat indie pop to keep the hipsters happy!

French dance music will add some cool, international flair!
3. “D.A.N.C.E.” -Justicejustice

A party isn’t complete without a little Danger Mouse in the house, just avoid the overplayed “Crazy”.

  1. Really out-there choices, Heather Frank! Not a romantic song among them. Are you a love cynic, or what!? Those five are more like, for a 5-year wedding anniversary, when everyone is so totally bored with each other that they gotta play early-days tracks just to make them feel like they want to get it on.

  2. Love your picks here. I’d also add:
    Jamie Lidell ‘A little bit of Feel Good’,
    Hot Chip ‘Ready for the Floor’,
    Cut Copy ‘Lights & Music’,
    Black Kids ‘I’m not gonna teach your boyfriend how to dance with you’,
    Stars ‘My Favourite Book’
