DJ Intelligence has once again compiled the list of the most requested songs for the year, as they do every year. The DJ Intelligence charts are regarded as the gold standard in event planning, downloaded tens of thousands of times and circulated to hundreds of thousands of clients annually. Compiled by analysing millions of actual client requests made through the DJ Intelligence music request system at weddings and parties around the world, we believe you will not find a more accurate representation of what songs are actually being requested and played at live events. Here’s what music we were listening to in 2016.
