Scott’s List of Must Play Songs at ANY Party [VIDEO]
Most weekends, I'm somewhere around the Ark-La-Tex playing dance music and emceeing at weddings, parties, etc.. If you're planning on throwing a party and you need help figuring out what songs to play, here are the ones you'll want to make sure you have.
V.I.C. – Wobble
By far, THE most popular dance song right now. Tip: Save this one for near the end. Yes, you'll have a lot of people asking you to play it earlier, but resist the temptation to do so.
Cupid – Cupid Shuffle
The morning of Arkansas High's prom in 2008, I opened my mailbox to retrieve my weekly music disc. After listening to this track, I knew this was one song that I would definitely debut at that nights prom. Little did I know then just how big this song would become. I can only think of one event in the last five years where I didn't play this song.
Mr C The Slideman – Cha Cha Slide
Speaking of dance songs with staying power, the Cha Cha Slide has been around for over 12 years and shows no sign of slowing down. “Now it's time to get funky! Take it back now ya'll!”
Rednex – Cotton Eye Joe
I don't play this one at EVERY event anymore, but it's still fairly popular. Especially for country crowds. I'd have this one just in case you see a lot of hats and cowboy boots in the crowd.
Carly Rae Jepsen – Call Me Maybe
To be honest, I'm already sick of this song. However, if your party consists of a large group of people under 30, it's a must play.
Flo Ride – Low
Doesn't matter what age group, find somewhere to mix this one in. The ladies always like to get low, low, low, low whether they're 12 or 60.
Luke Bryan – Drunk on You
You'll want to mix in some slower stuff no matter what age group you have in attendance. This one always packs the floor and has folks singing along.
Luke Bryan – Country Girl Shake It For Me
Luke has another must play with this one. I played this for a group of 8-10 year olds a few weeks ago and they sang along to every word. When it came time for the older kids dance, they danced and sang to it too. I've played it at weddings, school dances and everything in between with great results. Mix it in at the end of a country set and watch em kick up their heels.
Cali Swag District – Teach Me How To Dougie
If your party consists of teens and young adults, you'll definitely want to play this one.
Def Leppard – Pour Some Sugar On Me
No kickin' party is complete with this great rock anthem from the 80's.
