The O’Jays entertain with ‘Backstabbers’, ‘I Love Music’ and ‘Love Train’ mixed within some other boogie numbers. This initial remix is a great intro to ‘The Wedding Playlist pt.1’ which is an incredibly camp (and instantly loved) mix, incorporating the likes of Abba with ‘Dancing Queen’, ‘I Want You Back (’88 PWL remix) by the Jackson 5 and the unforgettable voice of Whitney Houston in her hit ‘I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me).
‘Stock, Aitken & Waterman: Alternative Hits’ carries us onto the next section of CD1 with some 80’s wonders. Kicking off with ‘Whenever You Need Somebody’ by Rick Astley before going into a bit of ‘I Can’t Help It’ by Bananarama, ‘Toy Boy’ by Simon Cowell’s BFF Sinitta and ending on a high with Samantha Fox’s ‘Nothing’s Gonna Stop me Now’. A complete change of era for the next collection ‘Swing-A-Long-A-Party’, Crooner Frank Sinatra gets us into a merry mood with ‘You Make Me Feel So Young’ before we go into a track that everyone can appreciate, ‘How D’Ya Like Your Eggs In The Morning’ from Dean Martin and Helen O’Connell. One that will definitely get everyone giggling is ‘Gilly Gilly Ossenfeffer Katzenellenbogen By The Sea’ from Max Bygraves, phew that’s a mouthful!
‘Beyoncé vs. Destiny’s Child’ is the penultimate offering and is a great mash-up of their most well-known hits, including ‘Survivor’, ‘Jumpin’ Jumpin’, and Crazy In Love’ before finishing off CD1 with the ‘Extended Floorfiller: You’re The Best’ from Joe Esposito.
‘Chart Breakers’ introduces us to CD2, a mix of current hits including ‘Glitter & Gold’ by X Factor runner-up Rebecca Ferguson, ‘Boyfriend’ by Justin Beiber and the unexpected smash from Fun (feat.

CD2 goes a bit RnB now with ‘Triple Tracker: Chris Brown’ which contains his hits ‘Turn Up The Music’, ‘Yeah 3x’ and ‘beautiful People (feat. Benny Benassi)’ before moving onto the ‘Hip Hop Party Breaks’ which is an evening chill-out mix and great background music for lots of occasions. Tracks include ‘Empire Stae Of Mind’ by Jay-Z (feat.
