I've been tasked with putting together the music for Lucy and Nick's wedding. I think I've covered all the basic wedding songs (it ain't a wedding reception until the Grease Megamix, YMCA, Nutbush City Limits and Time Warp have been played) and I'd rather have too many than too few. Any ideas welcome ;)

If anyone has either Tom Jones' "Sex Bomb" or P Diddy and Nelly's "Shake Your Tail Feather", I'd be grateful. They're specific requests from the bride and she hasn't made many - I'm having trouble finding them.

YMMV - this list doesn't neccessarily reflect my own musical taste (although a lot of it does), I'm trying hard to keep the dancing music, especially, varied and danceable.
