Prince William's Preferred DJ Entertains Royal Wedding Musings

As April 29 approaches, speculation mounts as to which DJ will be chosen to spin at Prince William and Kate Middleton's royal reception -- an evening dinner dance. Thirty-one-year-old Sam Young, aka DJ Sam, is a popular guess.

DJ Sam has been linked to the couple since 2007, after the future king of England requested he play Outkast's hit "Hey Ya" at London's Boujis nightclub.

"Everyone is assuming I'm DJing that wedding, and I'm not going to comment," Young told The Associated Press.

His talent makes him a popular DJ to such stars as Elton John and Paul McCartney. Young recently spun at a wedding attended by Wills and Kate, where he played a mixture of 1950s and 1960s rock 'n' roll. "She [Kate] was dancing all night", Young told the AP.

DJ Sam tells ABC News that Kate's dancing skills are the better of the royal twosome, and that she enjoys a twirl. William is not shy but more "reserved."

To help Prince William loosen up, DJ Sam offers a royal wedding playlist.

Top 5 Picks include: 1. Michael Jackson - "Billie Jean" 2. Prince - "Kiss" 3. Stevie Wonder - "Superstition, I Wish" 4. Kings of Leon - "Sex on Fire" 5. Rolling Stones - "Brown Sugar"

If asked to DJ the wedding, Sam would not turn down the opportunity to help the couple shake it like a Polaroid picture, saying, "It's like the biggest gig ever."
