Date parties, house parties, fraternity parties, tailgating tents, and chill study hangouts all have something in common: the same old songs. We get it, you’re a fun, chill person because you listen to Chance the Rapper. We’re sick of it.
Here are the faces of people bored by your basic tunes:
And here are some fresh party song ideas for you:
1. Selena Gomez - Bad Liar
Man, Selena has me shook with this one, you can find me dancing into a snap chat video.
2. The Cars - Just What I Needed
Can we please just get some oldies that aren’t "All I do is Win" or "Dynamite"?
3. Marian Hill - Down
FUN cool vibez
4. Cuco - Lo Que Siento
I’m a fan of this one, guys. It goes back and forth between English and Spanish, and I am here for it.
5. Mansionz - Dennis Rodman
This song’s just fun; truly.
6. Any Song Sung by Russ
"Me You", "Psycho", "One More Shot", and lots more. Plenty of good options when it comes to my man Russ.
7. Any Song Sung by Noah Cyrus
Don’t get me started on Noah Cyrus. This girl is just now gaining steam, but DANG she’s awesome. I really don’t even have to list songs here, because they’re all absolute BOPS. Thank you, Billy Rae, for passing on your musical genes and letting them develop into something way bigger and better than you.
8. BJ the Chicago Kid - Church
This one is a gem: it features Chance (I know, I know, settle down) plus its sort of sweet and almost wholesome.
9. J. Cole - G.O.M.D.
A sweet song that’s not "Wagon Wheel".
11. Ansel Elgort - Home Alone
Who knew Augustus / Baby Driver could sing?!? I've got to see him dance because I bet home boy's a triple threat.
12. Drake - Gyalchester
Why has Drizzy’s 2017 album, More Life, not hit the party scene yet? It. is. magical. Passionfruit is also 100%A+++
13. Madison Beer - Dead
The lyrics are kind of intense and hardcore, but the song as a whole is BANGIN, and we need more female sung bops that aren’t lovey-dovey
14. Calvin Harris ft. Future and Khalid - Rollin
15. Portugal. The Man - Feel It Still
You wanna combination of like every cool sounding song you’ve ever heard?! Here ya go. The Man’s 2017 featured song makes you want to drive really fast and dance like a crazy person.
16. Fleetwood Mac - Tusk
17. Rihanna and Kanye West and Paul McCartney - FourFiveSeconds
18. NoMBe - Wait
A voice that makes my heart melt AND good beats AND cool vibez? Sign me up. Plus, there are tons of remixes available if you like a little more spice in your party playlist.
19. The Black Keys - Never Gonna Give You Up
A slower, groovier jam to mix it up a little. Ya gotta love The Black Keys or we can’t be friends.
20. Ceelo Green - F**k You
I firmly believe that this should be played and shouted along to at every party.
