Is it still popular to play slow dance songs?

We’ve all seen those classic 80s movies where the high school kids are at prom and suddenly the slow dance song comes one. The girls sit on the bench to the side as the boys work up the nerve to ask them to dance with them. You should know by now that high school isn’t like an 80s movie, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have some slow dance songs in the mix. Adding slower songs to the music selection is nice because it allows some people to rest from all the jumping up and down they’ve been doing on the dance floor, hug their friends and get nostalgic, and yes, ask their special someone for a romantic dance. Five slower songs throughout the mix should be sufficient for the night.
