20 Disco Cuts That Aren’t On Your Wedding DJ’s Playlist

On this week’s MEL mixtape

Disco pumped out tons of amazing music, though we only tend to remember a small sliver of the canon that has survived through weddings (and ironic placement in film and TV). But disco is still one of the great American genres, and there’s tons of amazing body music out there if you’re willing to dig a little deeper. With wedding season just around the corner, many of you might be in the process of choosing your DJ — here’s something to slide his or her way.
