Dancing in the street for Royal Wedding

Jersey News from ITV Channel Television - Prince William and Kate Middleton
Prince William and Kate Middleton tie the knot on Friday 29 April

If you are planning a party to celebrate the Royal Wedding, then chances are you could be bopping along to 'Dancing in the Street'.

The Mick Jagger and David Bowie cover hit has topped a poll of songs that people would play at a street party to celebrate the Royal Wedding.

It is now just over a month until Prince William and Kate Middleton tie the knot at Westminster Abbey and people across the Channel Islands will celebrate with street parties and bashes.

The music survey, carried out by music royalties company PRS for Music, asked 3,000 across the UK, which songs they would play at a Royal Wedding street party.

Other songs voted into the top five choices include 'I Got a Feeling' by the Black Eyed Peas and The Beatles' romantic classic 'All You Need Is Love'.

Top Five Royal Wedding Street Party Songs:
1. Dancing in the Street – David Bowie / Mick Jagger
2. I Got a Feeling – Black Eyed Peas
3. Don’t Stop Me Now – Queen
4. Sex Is On Fire – Kings of Leon
5. All You Need is Love – The Beatles

PRS for Music is the organisation that collects and pays royalties to its 75,000 song-writing and composing members whenever their music is publicly played.

Guy Fletcher, chairman PRS for Music, said: "There has been tremendous excitement spreading across the UK about the forthcoming wedding between Will and Kate, with people preparing for their own celebrations for the big day. Music is going to be an essential part of those celebrations, so it is really quite interesting to see what the current favourite songs are, as voted by the General Public."

We recently reported that Sark is the only part of the Channel Islands planning an official Royal Wedding celebration. Elsewhere, people are being left to plan their own events to mark the day.

We were contacted by Jersey Victim Support, who told us they are hosting a Wedding Breakfast at Restaurant Sirocco at The Royal Yacht Hotel on the morning of the Royal Wedding day.

Lauren Hamill from Victim Support said: "This is an excellent way for islanders to mark the occasion, while supporting a local charity."

Tickets for the royal breakfast cost £30, which includes a glass of bubbly, a three course meal and all the trimmings of a wedding.

All of the Islands will enjoy a Bank Holiday for the Royal Wedding.
