Weddings, birthday parties and even Kitchen Teas will improve with some well chosen party songs to lift the mood. Here are Vicki’s 17 bright ideas for fun songs to play at a party to get your party pumping.
Dancing Queen – Arrival – Start the party with ABBA’s 1976 hit that will get everyone dancing. This song never gets old.
Step Back In Time – Rhythm of Love – Kylie Minogue’ 1990 tribute to the 70’s is simply fun, fun, fun. Turn it up and watch as everyone at your party starts to dance along.
…Baby One More Time – …Baby One More Time (Deluxe Version) – Britney Spears mega 1998 hit will have everyone singing along.
Party Rock Anthem (feat. Lauren Bennet & GoonRock) – Single – From their Sorry for Party Rocking album in 2010, this is a great song for young and old.
I Gotta Feeling – The E.N.D. (The Energy Never Dies) [Deluxe Version] – The energy will lift your party with this classic 2009 party song from The Black Eyed Peas..
YMCA – Can’t Stop the Music (Original Soundtrack 1980) – Not only will people be singing along to this Village People hit, they’ll be doing the actions too. A great ice breaker.
Firework – Teenage Dream – Katy Perry’s 2010 hit, Firework, will help to give your party an uplifting feeling and is sure to make everyone happy.
You Shook Me All Night Long – Back In Black – (1980) This is one for the boys and maybe keep it for a bit later into your party, when everyone finds their singing voice.
Vogue – The Immaculate Collection – This is one of Madonna’s 1990 songs that most people know some of the words to. It is really is one of those fun songs to play at a party. Download this one to your play list for sure.
Wannabe (Radio Edit) – Spice – (1996) Spice up the party with the greatest girl band ever! Make sure you have a dance floor at your party when you play this one.
Girls Just Want to Have Fun – True Colors: The Best of Cyndi Lauper – Originally from her She’s So Unusual, 1980, Cyndi Lauper will be a crowd pleaser amongst the girls with this 80’s classic.
Barbie Girl – Aquarium – (1997) Aqua are still performing as a group (believe it or not) but Barbie Girl is sure to be their biggest and best hit that will liven any party.
Take On Me – Hunting High and Low – I love this AHA song and it makes a great party song. Add it to your play list to get your guests singing along to this classic 1985 song.
Nut Bush City Limits – 70’s Soul And R&B – Move the furniture when this Ike & Tina Turner 1973 song comes on because everyone will be doing the ‘Nut Bush’. Make sure you know the moves before the party so you don’t look silly.
Livin’ On a Prayer – Slippery When Wet – I recommend you check out the whole Bon Jovi (Slippery When Wet, 1986) album as there are so many great songs that will have your guests pumped but start with this one – its a sure fire winner.
Gangnam Style (강남스타일) – Single – Psy, Psy 6 (Six Rules) Part 1, 2012. It may be a one hit wonder but it really is a fun party song. It is great choice for kids parties as they know all the moves and had 7 year olds wanting to learn Korean so they could understand what Psy is saying.
Shake It Off – 1989 (Deluxe) – Taylor Swift is a must for any party these days and this great song will give your party a fun and happy tone that will have all your guests smiling. Worth adding to your iPod even if you aren’t having a party.
