since it's monday i'm obviously thinking about parties...? i think the perfect party playlist doesn't stick to the same genre - it mixes pop, dance, rock, hip-hop, basically all the essentials. luckily, some insanely amazing party music has been released in the past few days/weeks.
here are my absolute BEST party music choices as of late:
1. new peter bjorn and john, finally! the trio exploded onto the scene with their whistle-filled pop in 2007, and they're back with Gimme Some. catchy tracks "Dig a Little Deeper" and "Second Chance" are perfect party songs. also add "Tomorrow Has To Wait" to that - with lyrics like 'it's the time of your life so tomorrow has to wait / tonight's tonight and tomorrow is a million miles away,' it's a perfect addition.
2. oh land is the Danish beauty that everyone's been talking about lately. her self-titled release is full of great songs, and the best for your next fiesta are "Sun of a Gun" and "We Turn It Up."
3. britney Spears, DUH! Princess Brit's latest album, Femme Fatale, came out last week, and my favorite so far is "Till the World Ends." its synth-pop beats are perfect for a little later on in the party when everyone's ready to dance (even the manliest of dudes will dance to britney once they're drunk).
4. mikey jukebox's self-titled album is full of 80s-inspired rock/pop that's perfect for a party. try "baby, baby, baby," "come on along," and "we don't stop 'til the kids R dancin'"
hope y'all enjoy these party tunes. make a playlist with these new releases, add some black keys, lil wayne, passion pit, jay-z, phoenix, and rolling stones and you're set.
