Usually, I just put the whole album on and let it play. I have some friends who hate anything that's commercial, but they can deal with it. My buddy was up for the weekend last week, and he asked me what was playing - he went to Best Buy and bought the album the very next day, so he could listen to it on his drive home.
for the most part, though - my friends and I all sit around a fire with DMB or Ben Folds playing on some outdoor speakers, and it makes for a good time. Then again, those are my friends that are DMB fans, which I tend to hang out with more often than not. (purely coincidental, I don't just pick friends based on music, but it helps..)
As far as specific crowd pleasers? Seven gets a jam going, Monkey, Funny and even You and Me. I had someone comment that they thought Y&M should have been at the end of the movie Wall-E. My friends are going to play that song as they exit their wedding reception.
