    Out on the floor, Dobie Gray is an obvious starter.

    So not Tainted Love then?

    Do I Love You? (Indeed I Do) – Frank Wilson.
    Dance Dance Dance – The Casualeers.

    Are the two that spring immediately to mind.

    Aye, got some Frankie Valli and Al Wilson. The wife-to-be actually introduced me to the Toots’ music. thanks for the reminder!

    As per title really. Anything you can dance to really (which I imagine is pretty much all NS songs), nothing too obscure though!

    Thanks

    If you are after non obscure there’s some good Motown dancers that would be familiar to all.

    Needle in a haystack, tears of a clown, same old song etc, etc

    Or some of the Stax classics

    Or Sum ink like this

    “Long after tonite is all over” by Jimmy Radcliffe is a good one to end the night/slow it down a bit

    Had a northern soul/ska/60’s Mod playlist at my wedding but then iam an old scooter boy/soul boy so it was never going to anything else when I sent MY playlist off to Dj’s a few dropped out of the running at that point,the one who we picked played a blinder of a set ๐Ÿ˜€

    Highclimber enjoy the day
