Things to Remember When Picking Van Morrison Songs

There are so many Van Morrison songs for weddings but not all of them may be ideal for your wedding theme. If you’re having a tough time making a decision, here are some tips to make things a little easier for you.

Know the Vibes

If you’re choosing a song for the reception, play some Van Morrison tunes and see which ones make you do that funky dance in the kitchen! It’s all about those songs that give you the instant urge to move your feet and groove along. 

Now if you’re looking for tracks for the ceremony or your first dance, search for slow-tempo hits. Additionally, consider the songs where the lyrics resonate with you. Maybe they remind you of your ups and downs or maybe they remind you of your lovely dinners together. Take a trip down memory lane.

Pro Tip: You want songs that feel like you’re in love. Go for tunes that instantly put a smile on your face and make you wiggle your hips without a second thought!

Consider the Lyrics

Listen closely to the words of those Van Morrison songs. If it makes you feel like writing love notes, that’s the one! Look for those lyrics that speak right to your love story. 💕

On the same note, be careful of songs that may not be ideal for songs. We’re talking about heartbreak tunes, my friends – you may want to skip those!

Pro Tip: Settle down with your partner and as you listen, pay attention to those lyrics that make you go, “Oh, that’s just like us!” Do they make you want to grab your partner and dance around the living room, declaring your love to the world (or just to your pet cat)? If yes, then that’s the one!

Is it Wedding-Worthy?

Imagine yourself swaying to different Van Morrison songs. Close your eyes and feel the vibe. Does it make your heart flutter like it’s doing cartwheels? If it feels like the melody to your love story, congratulations! You’ve just found a wedding-worthy tune!

The truth is not all songs are ideal for weddings. If you’re having a hard time with this, you can ask your DJ questions to help decide if they’re appropriate choices. Always consult the professionals when in doubt!

Pro Tip: Think about those moments you want to remember forever—like that first dance or the song that plays as you walk down the aisle. Go for songs that feel like they were written just for you and your sweetheart! 🎵😍

The #1 problem clients face...

As I’m sure you’re aware, we live in a world where people fear commitment. People leave all of their options open, because they’re afraid they might end up loosing out on a future opportunity that might be superior to what is right in front of them.

Yet this way of thinking is wrong… But why?

Because by failure to commit to something, the best options available become unavailable. What we thought was a sure thing, ends up becoming a missed opportunity. Through our deliberate action of inaction, we’re soon presented with second-tier options. Options that you wish you could’ve avoided in the first place. But you’ve already committed to the idea of hiring a DJ, so you end up going through with it anyway, and you choose whoever is available because you don’t want to completely miss out. But you know in your heart it didn’t feel like the right choice. And when the money is spent, and the performance is over, you’re disappointed. And you tell yourself: never again. Yet just like a teenager who claims to never drink again after binge drinking the night before, we end up in a cycle of never committing, and always being stuck with bad alternatives. Deep down inside, we’re unhappy. And we’re left with regret.

Amazing opportunities don't last long.

DJing.ca only performs at 125 corporate events per year,  and performs in front of companies such as McLaren, FlyOver Canada, and ActiveState. As we get more referrals each year, the number of calls & emails continues to grow. 

And with good reason.

Having a 100% satisfaction rate, we keep getting referrals. That’s what happens when you are Vancouver’s best DJs.

I know a lot of other people claim that, but here’s the facts:

We spent an entire year, or 4,000+ hours (yes, we’re work-a-holics) searching through 350 DJs, only to find the top 15 that met our expectations based on personality, experience, and professionalism. If any DJ doesn’t receive a 5/5 star rating from clients (just like yourself), they do not meet the requirements of our contract and can no longer work with us.

And here’s the kicker…

To date we haven’t had to remove anyone.

If you want your event to be truly amazing, don’t hesitate. Fill out the form, we’re here to help. Let’s work together to make your vision come to life.
