    Sweet Caroline can also go down a storm during the meal:

    I've seen it happen at my gigs too. It's a result of sorts. Low hanging fruit of the lowest common denominator variety. Like people laughing at a Peter Kay standup routine or Mrs Brown. Not to everybody's taste & if I were a guest I'd be waiting outside for my cab to arrive by the end of the intro.

    I do it at Christmas & new year parties too. As I say it gets results but I don't have to like it.

    A dj filled in at my club slot back in the day while I was on holiday. He played Sweet Caroline at the end of the night & was sacked on the spot (because it wasn't That's Amore)

    I've had requests for both Africa & You Can Call Me Al at weddings. Only ever seen either go down well a few times dancing wise. They're both buffet time tracks really like Don't Stop Believin'. Good tunes but not party material really.

    Had both a lot.

    You Can Call Me Al has a good beat, people will dance.

    If i'm not finishing up with some classic dance tracks like ATB 9 PM, i'll usually play some classic rocks such as Queen and Journey about 11pm when the guests are ed! They love a sing along then.

    Then ed guests will dance to most things... :-)
