Michael Jackson at your wedding

It’s been a year since Michael Jackson's untimely death. His music will always be timeless and since his music makes us feel good, it makes perfect sense to play them at weddings. Here are 5 Michael Jackson songs suitable for weddings.

1. We've Got a Good Thing Going

I love it when first dance music is slow enough to be romantic but not so slow that the couple can't have some fun. This song of celebration's easy 70's beat feels like sun in the summertime – easy and free.

2. I'll Be There

This is an oldie but a goodie from the Jackson 5, complete with those adorable teenage voices. Though there is one brief lyric that mentions the possibility of one day finding someone new, this sweet ballad promises over and over again that your sweetheart will always be there for you even if you do. Some people say this song is about asking a lover to give you another chance after a breakup, but the lyrics don't indicate that.

3. The Way You Make Me Feel

This was the third #1 hit from his legendary album Bad. Not only is it about love, but it that will get everyone on the dance floor and singing along. And really, what else can you ask from a Michael Jackson wedding song?

4. I Just Can't Stop Loving You

Surprisingly, this was the first of five #1 hits from Bad. Though today it is not as popular as the other hits, it's still a solid R&B ballad between Jackson and Siedah Garrett. It's perfect for a first dance song, or for during dinner.

5. P.Y.T.

Every DJ keeps in their back pocket an arsenal of songs guaranteed to pack the dance floor. This is absolutely one of those songs – it's got a compelling beat, call and response, easy-to-sing-along-to lyrics, and a fluffy funk that makes it fun. The lyrics are somewhat sexual so it won't work if you've got a sensitive crowd, but otherwise make sure your DJ includes this track.
