    Exactly. If I'm honest, I can't see why you'd even have a list of songs to choose from. Over the course of the last year, I've done weddings with a heavy slant towards Rock, Rock & Roll, Indie, Goth, & Ska (to list those that I can remember). How many of the tracks listed so far in this thread would be suitable for any of those? I wouldn't consider any of them except perhaps Queen for the Rock one, although I'm fairly sure I would've played that earlier in the night.

    From memory I remember using Prince Buster - Enjoy Yourself to end the Ska one. Can't remember any of the others

    I assumed it was just a general question, asking for suggestions on what we might 'generally' play at a standard disco.

    I'm guessing it's down to our individual styles! Unless requested I like to play a mix of slower / epic tracks for the last 3-4 tracks at the end. These tracks I would normally not play at any other time unless the mood needs resetting or if they clearly want it "right now"!

    Why have a list seems a bit of a silly question? It's so much easier! So I'm doing a gothic wedding... having only ever done 2 gothic style weddings I might rack my brains for an end of the night track like I'm doing now and think of maybe: Cradle of filth - Nymphetamine or probably a better choice but not really gothic: Stone Sour - Through the glass... all I can think of at the moment... but if I had a list of 100 good end of the night tracks 5 of those tracks might be better ideas which I came across previously.

    As most of my gigs are Barn dance, Line dance and Country and Western / AMERICAN Theme for some reason the only number to finish on is always Sweet Home Alabama .

    Never fails.

    Unless I get asked for Auld Lang Syne of course as per last Saturday.

    Try and avoid them but if the crowd have generally gone for the typical wedding songs then either "New York, New York" or "Never Forget". I never play Angels though!

    Bit like Steve though it's always a gig by gig basis and rarely go for anything on this list. That said Green day "Time Of My Life" is a good choice particularly if they've liked the late 90 - mid 00's rock/indie stuff.

    In Ireland there is the "Holy Trinity" of end of night songs comprising of:

    500 Miles - Proclaimers
    Come on Eileen - Dexys
    Sweet Caroline - Neil Diamond

    You play these and you'll have a full dance floor although its very cheesy and boring to boot. Other songs that have worked for me include Take That's Never Forget, New York/New York and Lulu - Shout. One of the most unusual requests I had for a wedding was to play The Universal by Blur. Bride and Groom both insisted upon it but they knew their crowd and the whole room sang the chorus with gusto. Great ending to a gig. But not one I'd consider doing at any old gig.

    Smoochers to finish: Van the Man "Have I Told You Lately" and Eric Clapton "Wonderful Tonight" which includes the lyric "It's time to go home now" and the lights up kick em out the door singing finale Vera Lynn "We'll Meet Again". Nothing and I mean NOTHING follows that. Job done.

    Fantastic track to drop in after a fake ending and 3 cheers etc!
    They think its all over, the lights go down and BOOM!

    I have always wanted to play Foo Fighters Breakout.
    Any ACDC hit or something like 'I believe in a thing called love' is always a winner.

    - Then hit them with the slow track.
