14 Songs For The Best Party Playlist

14 Songs For The Best Party Playlist

Here is your guide to a good night.

Have you ever gone to a party where the music was a complete turnoff? Have you invited some friends to hang out but can't decide on what to listen to? These are struggles that music listeners encounter daily when the radio station is playing the same songs over and over. Fortunately, for you, I have devised a list of songs that will never go out of style and are perfect for anyone's turn-up weekend playlist.

1. "It's My Party" - Jessie J

This song is sure to get you off of your feet and out on the dance floor with its catchy hooks. A dance-y pop song that lets the haters know that you don't care, what's not to love?! With an upbeat tempo and witty lyrics such as, "So, while you're acting like you're sick, sitting around and talking sh*t. Don't you get tired of being alone? Awwwww. Your only friend is your phone", it's a great song to kick off any party.

2. "We Can't Stop" - Miley Cyrus

Love her or hate her, you have to admit that this girl has some pipes. If that weren't enough, she clearly knows how to party. With the I-don't-care vibe throughout the song, one can only start to agree with Miley when she sings lyrics such as, "We can't stop, we wont stop. Can't you see it's we who own the night? Can't you see it's we who 'bout that life". Once the party get's going there is no stopping.

3. "Born This Way" - Lady Gaga

While this may not be the heaviest dance track on this list, it sure packs a punch where it counts. The lyrics are impeccable regarding self love and worth, that one can only be put into a good mood when listening to this song. As she belts out, "Don't hide yourself in regret, just love yourself and you're set. I'm on the right track, baby I was born this way", it's hard not to be happy.

4. "We R Who We R" - Kesha

If anyone knows how to party, it would be this girl right here. This pop princess is known for her heavy dance tracks and constant glitter everywhere. It was hard to pick which song of her's I would place on this list, but I knew I had no other choice besides this one. Any song that sings about 'dancing like we are dumb' gets an A+ in my book. I have got my white-boy moves down!

5. "Cheap Thrills" - Sia (Feat. Sean Paul)

Now, normally I am not one for a remix as I believe the original is always better. This is an exception. Artist Sean Paul gives this song just the right push that it needed to become #1 on the Billboard Hot100 for 4 weeks in a row! With reggae vibes and the assistance of Mr. Paul, this song is a true gem. I mean, how can you not love a song that talks not needing any money to be able to have a good time.

6. "Boy Problems" - Carly Rae Jepsen

What girl's night is complete without a song all about boy problems? From Carly's sophomore album "E-Mo-Tion" which was released last year, this song was instantly one of my personal favorites off the bat. With a quick intro from the lovely Sia to begin the song, it's pretty obvious that this song was built for success. With a catchy beat and lyrics like, "Boy problems, who's got 'em? I've got 'em too. Boy troubles, we've got double. Don't know what to do. I think I broke up with my boyfriend today and I don't really care. I've got worse problems.", the girls are sure to bond and a lough about all of their past relationships.

7. "Raise Your Glass" - P!nk

If there is any song that can combine self love with a great party, it would be this one. P!nk is an artist who has never shied away from being themselves, no matter how punk that is, and this song truly shows that. Giving a shout out to all of the freaks, underdogs, and any one who just feels like they are, "... to school for cool", this song is sure to bring everyone together to raise a glass.

8. "Break Free" -Ariana Grande (Feat. Zedd)

With mastermind DJ Zedd on the scenes for this song there was no way it could flop. With lyrics like, "I only want to die alive, never by the hands of a broken heart. Don't want to hear you lie tonight, now that I've become who I really am.", It's a perfect song to dance away all of those bad vibes from your previous relationship. Make sure to turn up this one loud and just let it all out.

9. "The Other Side" - Jason Derulo

Ever wanted to listen to a nice love song but got tired of the same old ballads. This song has got you covered. This is a heavy dance track that will have you feeling some type of way about your significant other all night long. As Derulo sings, "Tonight, take me to the other side. Sparks fly like the fourth of July. Take me to the to the other side. I see that sexy look in your eyes.", you know it's going to be a good night. Derulo's beautiful vocals are an added bonus.

10. "Super Bass" - Nicki Minaj

With the song that put this artist on the map, everyone will be trying to hold their breaths as they attempt to rap side by side with the self-proclaimed queen of rap. This song was a successful combination of rap lyrics with a wonderful pop-dance beat backing it up. You play this one for your girls and you are sure to have everyone on their feet and singing along in no time.

11. "Daft Punk" - Pentatonix

The song that won this group their first Grammy of course could not be left off this list. This song is a medley of some of Daft Punk's most famous songs, all done acapella. That's right, no instruments, only voices. This group is a force to be reckoned with as they first made their debut as the winner's of "The Sing-Off", a reality competition for acapella groups. Since winning this group has broken many boundaries in the music industry and has had many success' such as this one. Any Daft Punk fan is sure to fall in love as well as anyone else.

12. "M.F.P.O.T.Y." - Cher Lloyd

When creating this list I knew instantly that this song was going to be on here for several reasons. The main reason for this is for all of my girls out there. If you have ever been to a party or the club and some sleaze comes up and is trying to hit on you then you know exactly what this song is about. It's a giant middle finger up to those people while making sure to remind you to always have fun and keep dancing. I mean, what's not to love about lyrics like, "Boy I know that you want some of all this, but I'm out with my girls and you can't touch lightening. So we dance, and we dance like you're just not there."

13. "Timber" - Pitbull (Feat. Kesha)

One of my main goals for creating this playlist was to not duplicate artists. Although this song is mainly sung by an artist previously mentioned, it does feature one and therefore still works. I couldn't imagine this song not being on the list. When these two artists collaborated I automatically knew the track would be one that would tear up the dance floor and I was right. If you ever wanted a song where you could just get down and dirty to for no reason, this is it. I mean, "It's going down, I'm yelling timber. You better move, you better dance. Let's make a night you wont remember. I'll be the one you wont forget", just speaks for itself!

14. "I Gotta Feeling" - Black Eyed Peas

I couldn't think of any other song to close this list off with than this one right here. No agenda, no hidden meaning, just a simple song about partying and having a good night. What's even better is that this song doubles as a lesson as it names all of the days of the week for those that are too far gone to remember. This song is a true party track to it's core and deserves to be on this list.

There you have it. Now you are all set for the best playlist for when you're inviting friends over for some fun or heading out to a party. Kick that crummy old DJ out and make yourself in charge with this playlist that is sure to get people off of their feet and onto the dance floor. Have fun, but don't get too crazy. Remember to always party responsibly.

What Your Hogwarts House Says About You

Get yourself sorted and find out where you belong in the world of witchcraft and wizardry.

Sorting at Hogwarts is a big deal. Being sorted into a house is essentially being placed into a family while you are away from home learning about witchcraft and wizardry. Your house is made up of the people you will live with, go to classes with, play Quidditch with and everything in between. You basically spend 24/7 with them. Your Hogwarts house is your home away from home.

When you get sorted into a house, it is based on your personality traits. The people in your house are typically like-minded people who display the same characteristics as you.

When you’re a first year at Hogwarts, the minute you set foot in the castle you are swept into the Great Hall to have the ancient Sorting Hat placed on your head. This Sorting Hat decides which “family” you’ll be spending your seven years with.

For some, it is very obvious which house they will be in, due to certain personality traits they possess. For others, they may exemplify traits that fit a multitude of houses and are uncertain where they may end up.

To find out where you belong, you can take the official "Harry Potter" Sorting Hat quiz at Pottermore.com. For all you muggles out there, these are the characteristics that the houses possess and what your house says about you:

Gryffindor: The house of the brave, loyal, courageous, adventurous, daring and chivalrous. Those who stand up for others are typically Gryffindors. Brave-hearted is the most well-known Gryffindor characteristic, and Gryffindors are also known for having a lot of nerve.

Gryffindors are people who hold a multitude of qualities alongside the ones listed, making them a very well-rounded house. People who are Gryffindors are often people who could fit nicely into another house but choose to tell the sorting hat they want Gryffindor (there's that bravery). "Do what is right" is the motto Gryffindors go by.

Being a Gryffindor means that you're probably the adventurous and courageous friend, and you are usually known for doing what is right.

Ravenclaw: The house is known for their wisdom, intelligence, creativity, cleverness and knowledge. Those who value brains over brawn can be found here. Ravenclaws often tend to be quite quirky as well. "Do what is wise" is the motto they strive to follow.

Though Ravenclaws can be know-it-alls sometimes, they most likely do know what the wisest decision is.

If you are known for being the quirky friend, the smartest in the group or just great at making wise decisions, you're definitely a Ravenclaw.

Hufflepuff: This house values hard work, dedication, fair play, patience, and loyalty. Hufflepuff’s are known for being just and true. "Do what is nice" is their motto.

Hufflepuff is known as the “nice house” and believes strongly in sparing peoples feelings and being kind. This is not to say that Hufflepuffs aren't smart or courageous. Hufflepuffs just enjoy making others happy and tend to be more patient towards people.

If you ever find that you are too nice for your own good and cannot bear to hurt someone’s feelings, congratulations, you are a Hufflepuff.

Slytherin: This is the house of the cunning, prideful, resourceful, ambitious, intelligent, and determined. Slytherin's love to be in charge and crave leadership. "Do what is necessary" is the motto of this house.

Slytherin is a fairly well-rounded house, similar to the other houses. They are loyal to those that are loyal to them just as Gryffindors are and are intelligent as Ravenclaws.

Slytherin house as a whole is not evil, despite how many dark wizards come out of this house. That is merely based on the choices of those wizards (so if your friend is a Slytherin, don’t judge, it doesn’t mean they are mean people). Slytherins do, however, have a tendency to be arrogant or prideful. This is most likely due to the fact that everyone in Slytherin is exceedingly proud to be there.

What Hogwarts house you’re in says a lot about the person you are, the traits you possess and how you may act in some situations. But in the end, your house is really just your home that is always there for you. Always.

5 Reasons Why The Saints Are Inbound To Win The Super Bowl

With the Saints rolling this year, there are 5 crucial reasons why they have a great chance to make the Superbowl.


When you're reading this is February, you're gonna ask yourself, "How did he know?" I'm a wizard; that's why I know the Saints are going to the Superbowl this year. I'm just kidding, but in all seriousness, I can say with confidence that the Saints have one of the better chances in the NFL to make it to the Superbowl. Below are 5 reasons why they'll make the Superbowl in February 2019.

1. Breesus Christ

The Saints have Drew "freaking" Brees. I literally do not need to say more, but I will anyway.

Drew Brees is the best quarterback in the league period. He will break the record for most passing yards in a career this season, and he has the record for highest completion percentage. To all the people that say Tom Brady is better, you're wrong. Tom Brady has always had a defense to rely on when he needed; Drew Brees hasn't.

Whenever the Saints need Brees, he's always there. The Saints rely on him to get them out of big holes and us Saints fans know that he's the best QB in the league and will lead us to another Superbowl this year.

2. Lighting and Thunder

Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram being the best running back duo in the league isn't new news. We saw all of last season that Ingram was a bruiser and Kamara was a shifty back. They form a lighting and thunder duo. This season, Ingram has been suspended for the first four games and the Saints were still able to go 3-1. Just imagine how great the Saints are going to be when Ingram comes back this week. It's going to be SCARY.

How do defenses stop Kamara, Ingram, Brees, and Thomas? Defenses beware because the Saints are marching in.

3. Can't Guard Mike

Michael Thomas has been unstoppable this year. No one can guard him. In my opinion he's the best receiver in the league, and while others disagree, they can't deny the impact Thomas has had for the Saints. With the best QB in the league, Thomas is in a prime position to lead a major push to the Superbowl for the Saints. When the offense is rolling, no one can stop the Saints. Cornerbacks can prepare as hard as they need, but they can't guard Mike.

4. Boonk Gang

The Saints defense made major strides last year and helped propel them to many wins. If not for a freak play that resulted in the Saints losing in the divisional round, I believe the Saints would have moved on to the Superbowl. While the defense has been pretty bad at the beginning of the season, in week three, the Saints defense showed what they are capable of. With Ingram coming back and controlling the pace of the offense, watch for the defense to get much better through the season.

5. "Put me in Coach Payton"

Sean Payton may be the second best coach in the league after Bill Belichick.

Coach Payton has had the Saints offense in the top 10 offenses every single year since he became head coach in 2006. With his offensive creativity and his ability to use players such as backup QB Taysom Hill in positions where no other coach would dare to use them, Coach Payton will be the driving force in leading the Saints to the Superbowl.
