When the COVID-19 pandemic forced us to spend significantly more time at home last year, people sought means of escaping from that state of the world. While some trends were short-lived, such as Tiger King and making banana bread, one trend in the music industry revived that delivered the perfect means of escapism: disco.

Popular music in 2020 had an upbeat, danceable quality, reminiscent of the Studio 54 sound. Fortunately, as coronavirus restrictions are lifted, contemporary disco music now makes the perfect soundtrack for your reception! These five songs are guaranteed to make your reception a blast.

“Dynamite” by BTS

This catchy, upbeat disco song from the South Korean boy band BTS echoes the 1970s while still managing to sound fresh to new ears. Its combination of funk, soul, and teen pop will appeal to all of your guests, as they likely will not be able to resist its joyful spirit.

“Levitating” by Dua Lipa

While any track from Dua Lipa’s Future Nostalgia album will be sure to be a hit at your wedding, the track “Levitating” stands out the most. Reminiscent of “Rapture” by Blondie, its mixture of pop and rap upholds a mesmerizing quality that ensures to pack your dancefloor.

“Stupid Love” by Lady Gaga

“Stupid Love” marked Lady Gaga’s return to unapologetic pop music, and she most certainly did not pull any punches. Its thumping beats balance out with joyful lyrics about newfound love, a perfect remembrance of your special night.

“Magic” by Kylie Minogue

Kylie Minogue entered the fifth decade of her career with an album aptly titled DISCO, and its opener, “Magic,” lives up to its name. The euphoric composition, hope-filled lyrics, and Minogue’s mellow vocal deliverance will make your wedding playlist one to remember. 

“Blinding Lights” by The Weeknd

While you have likely heard this song by now, it still makes the ultimate dance anthem that fills dancefloors. Its energizing synths and pulsating beat will transport your guests back to the 1980s, an exciting way to start the new chapter of your life.
