Maybe you’re DJ’ing a big party or just playing your ipod at a friends small get-together…either way, dropping a song that everyone will like at Midnight that sums up the mood is critical. It could mean the beginning or the end of a party for party-hoppers so you must choose wisely! I’ve never had the gift and curse of DJ’ing or playing music on New Years Eve, but if you guys do – here are some picks that I dig. The number one thing you need to know is…your crowd! Know what they are responding to and play accordingly! Good luck!
5. “1999” – PRINCE
(Obvious Pick: Good For All, But They May Hate Hearing It)
I mean, this is obvious and extremely overdone. It’s my very last pick, but if you’re panicing at what to play – don’t fret and go with this safe bet. At least everyone in the room will know it!
4. “HOLIDAY” – MADONNA
(Pop Pick: Good For Your Girlfriends & Gay Homies)
A little Madonna ain’t never hurt nobody! This song feels good and focuses “CELEBRATION”. This can almost guarantee that all the girls in the room will dance and have your gay homies doing sing-a-longs! Sounds like my kind of par-tay!
3. “IT’S THE END OF THE WORLD” – R.E.M.
(Morbid Pick: Good For Your Friends With A Sense Of Humor, Maybe Not Older Family Members)
Hey, if you read my blog than you know I have a dark sense of humor so don’t look at me too crazy. This song might be a creepy track to ring in a new year – but, it’s SUPER RAD! If your friends have any sense of humor or if they’re still standing at midnight, they might get a good laugh at this choice.
2. “CELEBRATE” – KOOL & THE GANG
(Classic Pick: Good For All Who Know A Good Tune When They Hear One)
I can’t imagine a single person having a problem with some Kool & The Gang, and if they did I wouldn’t pay them any mind. This song is a classic! Guaranteed to get Gramps or Mee-Mah or whoever doing a little boogie in their seat!
1. “LET’S DANCE” – DAVID BOWIE
(Interesting Pick: Good For Weirdos & People With Interest In A Wide Variety Of Music)
My numero uno pick! This track is perfect for me and my friends, which are a literal stone cold pack of weirdos. Not too pop and not to underground. Don’t be afraid to dance to a little Bowie.
HAPPY 2013 EVERYONE! BE SAFE & HAVE FUN! ALSO – DO NOT DRINK AND DRIVE. LET IT ALL HANG OUT AND TAKE A CAB HOME…OR TO THE HOME OF THAT HOT PERSON YOU MET THAT INVITED YOU OVER FOR A SLEEPOVER!
