Wedding Entertainment Melbourne 1986 Most Requested Songs

Matt Jefferies Entertainment – Wedding Entertainment Melbourne Music Tips

It was the year of 1986, and John Farnham released the single “You’re the Voice”, which in my opinion is one of the all-time greatest songs. When it comes to weddings, and this song is being played, it gets a huge reaction with guests singing. I have been lucky enough to see John Farnham live four times and he knows how to put on a show. If you have not seen him live, then do yourself a favour and watch him live.

Wedding Entertainment Melbourne 1986 most requested songs blog is about popular songs that I constantly play at wedding receptions all over Melbourne. This list has something for every guest from the singalong to the classic get up and dance track. 

One of the song choices in this blog, “True Colors” made the list because I have had couples now and again request this for their First Dance song. Furthermore, it also makes for a good background song to play while guests are having their entree or main meals.

Did You Know:

“How will I Know” by Whitney Houston was not written for her in the first place. The song was originally written for Janet Jackson and her writers at the time felt that the song did not match what Janet was after for her album so they passed on the opportunity. Whitney Houston’s writers, however, hears the song lyrics and needed a pop song for her album. They fell in love with the song and got Whitney to sing it and recorded for her album. Indeed, it became a massive hit song.
