I often call 'the Barn Dance' at ceilidhs and some of the bands I work with have singing sets for these.
Trouble is, for weddings and gigs with younger participants many of the songs are a 'bit before their time'
'Enry the Eigth
Wouldn't leave my little wooden hut
You are my honeysuckle
John Brown's body
Underneath the spreading chestnut tree
etc. etc.

When I'm 64 fits the dance well and gets a response. And sometimes songs that would be 'dated' even for a gig in a care home go down OK. Can you suggest any more ploddy songs that might be well known to younger generations (in England).

I thought it better to start a new thread rather than mix my request with the Biker's Singalong thread

Gog Magog Morris use the Oompa Loompa Song from "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" for one of their dances and it works well.
