Posted on: 16-Mar-2018 20:01:16

There are some songs which are considered “iconic”. No matter how old they get, they’re always considered classics. You may want to consider requesting some of these at your mobile disco! Your DJ at Capital Nightlife will give you a sheet beforehand, so you can choose the songs that you want. Do you recognise these songs? And do you think they’ll be a request that you’ll make at your party?

  1. Candle in the Wind by Elton John.

    This song came out in 1997 and peaked in the charts at 1. It also peaked in the best-selling charts with a staggering 4,920,000 sales! It has over a million more purchases than 2…
  1. Do They know It’s Christmas? by Band Aid.
