I think you're doing the right thing Rosie by starting with the 60's.
I would then get progressively more modern as the day goes on, a sort of musical anthology of each decade, on the assumption that the 'young un's' will be the only ones still standing/awake post midnight, and will want to dance to music that they know...just bung on some Ministry/Hacienda/Cream mixes.
Sites like this
are quite useful to get an overall snapshot of what was popular at the time...
Forgot to ask, how are you playing the music...individual CDs or can you create your own playlists through iTunes?
