Each year during the summer, my family and I attend a couple of my family's reunions.  We always have a blast catching up with family members and also meeting new ones.



Best part about attending my southern family reunions is the food!  Oh my goodness the food be screamin'!  Makes you want to slap ya momma it's so good!  (Don't go slapping your mom, LOL)



Also what I like is that my family hires a DJ to play all the classic hits to get everyone up- including the old folks, movin' and groovin'.



I wanted to share some of The Top Songs Played at Black Family Reunions, check out the list below:




Summer Time By The Fresh Prince and DJ Jazzy Jeff




Cupid Shuffle by Cupid

 

 

Cha-Cha Slide by Mr. C

 

 

Step in the Name of Love by R. Kelly

 

 

I'll Take You There by The Staple Singers

 

 

Humpty Dance by Digital Underground

 

 

Flashlight by George Clinton

 

 

Get Down On It by Kool & The Gang

 

 

Me and Mrs. Jones by Billy Paul



Did I get you guys out of your seat dancing yet?  



My dad also likes to have Blues music playing since that's pretty much all he listens to in Memphis, but I think the Blues can be a bit slow and depressing because the storyline of Blues songs is usually about sadness.  I want to have a good time, not listening to someone singing about being down on their luck.



UPDATE- How in the world can I forget about The O'Jays Family Reunion?  That is one of the biggest songs at black family reunions.  How embarrassing!



Family Reunion by The O'Jays







Another song I forgotten (thanks Brandy) We Are Family by Sister Sledge.


We Are Family by Sister Sledge





Ashley over at FabEllis.com made some great song suggestions.  No family reunion can go without playing some Michael Jackson!

PYT (Pretty Young Thing) by Michael Jackson



Remember The Time by Michael Jackson




Don't Stop Til You Get Enough by Michael Jackson

 

 

 A reader suggested Bustin' Loose by Chuck Brown

 

 

Got to Give it Up by Marvin Gaye

 

 

Outstanding by Gap Band 



Before I Let Go by Maze Ft. Frankie Beverly


 

 

 

Are there any other songs that are always played at Black Family Reunions?

  1. Well, I can't speak to songs at Black Family Reunions because I've never been to any BUT.... I can say that it is awesome to see families come together for reunions. My family and my husbands family... sucks.. sorry but they do... I wish we had reunions.. we did growing up when I was a little kid and they were memory makers.

  11. Louida, being a transplant from Washington, DC (I'm back in the south), you MUST get "I Feel Like Bustin' Loose" by DC's own Chuck Brown! Now that's a party starter!
