Be it a reunion of friends, family, an office reunion, class reunion, school reunion, college reunion or online reunion, without a playlist of catchy songs, the party can get boring. A lot goes into making a reunion party successful. Planning and coordination among the organizers is of prime importance to ensure things run smoothly at reunion celebrations. The type of music that is played at such parties dictates the vibe.

The list below showcases an epic collection of EDM songs, pop songs, rock songs, hip hop songs, country songs, alternative songs, indie songs and dance songs for reunions. You can use the list to make you very own personalized playlists for reunion celebrations. Happy Partying! If you have a view, opinion, or song suggestion, let us know in the comments section.

Why is Music Important at Reunions?

You have to realize people at a reunion are coming together after a long period of separation. The best way to kickstart things at reunions is with music. Meeting each other after a long period of time, gossip and reunion anxiety take center stage. Although people feel excited to meet someone they haven’t met in years at reunions, the natural tendency is to feel a little nervous.

In such times, its music that helps people relax. The type of songs you begin with sets the tone for the party. Every session of music should be a build up to the next sequence of events. A carefully selected compilation of songs flows seamlessly into different stages of a reunion celebration. When guests at a party feel comfortable, they are likely to participate and unwind as the events unfold. Make sure you have a checklist to guide you through different sessions of the party.

What Songs are Appropriate for Reunion Parties?

It is wise to pick a mixed bag of songs for reunion parties. When you pick songs from different genres you have a variety of tunes for different sessions of the party. Aside from the regular party anthems and dance songs, make sure you include an energetic mix of pop songs, rock songs, hip hop songs, and EDM songs. Make sure you start things off with peppy songs at reunions. When people meet each other after a long period of time, they feel a little hesitant or shy to make their way to the dance floor. A thoughtfully curated playlist of reunion songs builds momentum and makes guests at the party feel comfortable.

Foot-thumping dance songs with an energetic vibe are perfect to get the crowd in frenzy. Both upbeat songs and slow dance songs are popular at reunions. Upbeat songs with a euphoric feel take energy levels to a whole new level at parties. Songs with a funny sing-along chorus strike the right chord with guests at reunions. These songs bring about a playful vibe that tease and please guests. Aside from new songs, make sure you include the classics. When you have a playlist of songs from different decades, you ensure you break the monotony of repetitive elements.

Song Dedications and Song Requests at Reunion Celebrations

Song dedications and song requests are exceedingly popular at reunions. Coming together after a long time, people like to have fun with song requests and dedications. If there’s a DJ and/or a live band playing at the reunion party, you can hand over your song request to be played. You can also have a word with the DJ/band in case you want to dedicate a song. If you feel confident with the microphone, make sure your announcement is short and sweet before your song is played. Most songs dedicated to groups at parties should ideally be anthems with a powerful message.

You can also request songs to tease someone; however, you should know where to draw the line. Remember, clean fun is good fun. Do not go overboard to mock or ridicule anybody at reunion parties. Avoid songs with offensive lyrics during dedications as they may hurt sentiments if not taken in the right spirit. Ideally a good song dedication is an ode that evokes a happy response from the person or group to whom it is dedicated.

When Should You Have the Slow Dance Session at Reunions?

The slow dance session is rather popular at reunion parties. Although at different types of parties the slow dance session is reserved for the final stretch, it is wise to incorporate this dance session early on in the reunion party. People sweat profusely on the dance floor, especially while doing their characteristic dance moves to the tunes of upbeat songs.

If the slow dance session is at the tail end of the party, couples are likely to be dancing in arms with their partners or someone else’s partners in soggy wet sweat. To avoid this nightmarish scenario, it is always recommended you have the slow dance section early on or during the mid-section of the reunion party. It is wise to take a little break after an upbeat dance session and freshen up before the slow dance begins.
