Nine Songs to Get a Party Going

When organising a party, one of the biggest challenges we are faced with is choosing a playlist that everyone can get down to. With control over the tempo, vibe and mood you create for your night, it’s important that it is done right. Here are some great tunes which are essentials guaranteed to get your party going!

There aren’t many who don’t know “Hey Ya” by OutKast. This fast tune is sure to build your guest’s excitement while they can’t help but dance to the undeniably catchy beat.

Lead on from this with “Chelsea Dagger” by The Fratellis – an anthem used throughout sporting events over the years, bringing with it an electric energy to the night.

“Seven Nation Army” by the White Stripes echoes its core riff with a strong bass. The JBL Flip 4 Portable Bluetooth Speaker features dual external passive radiators which means that even those who can’t dance, are unable to resist tapping their feet when they feel the bass.

Maintain this thrilling rhythm with Franz Ferdinand’s “Take Me Out” which has an impossible-to-ignore stamping beat reminiscent of the early 2000’s with a funky riff to match.

Easily bridge the gap between your different age groups with “The Passenger” by Iggy Pop that builds the primal pulse of the 80’s rock, inviting all those at the back to come and join the party.

From the same era, a classic throwback of “Come On Eileen” is a timeless feel-good tune will have each of your guests belting out the words. The Wireless Party Chain feature of the Sony XB41 Ultimate means you can connect multiple speakers together to carry your music across your guests.

If you feel a dip in the night’s mood, it’s the perfect time to pull out a bit of Queen B! Beyoncé’s “Crazy In Love” demands your guests to the dancefloor with features of hip-hop, and styled funk. Don’t be afraid to put your speakers right where it counts! The UE Boom 2 is waterproof and that means it can be set up poolside for you to enjoy throughout the summer.

As your party starts to wind down, you’ll come to appreciate the huge 15-hour battery life of the UE Boom 2 while you keep the music going! Blondie’s “Union City Blue” is a mid-tempo classic exposing the pull to the power and passion of the American skylines. It brings a slower pace to help wind down the party without ‘pulling the cord’.

Fade in “Heroes” by David Bowie as its sombre yet hopeful rhythm provides a nostalgic solidarity of swaying into the late hours of the night.

A well curated playlist necessitates speakers to match but luckily, that’s the easy part. Investing in quality speakers is a simple way to ensure you can provide the best experience for your guests. The JBL Flip 4, the Sony XB41 Ultimate and the UE Boom 2 are just a few of the revolutionary speakers on the market. They include varying features which provide you with the best sound, long battery life and practicality and ease of use that invites fun and ensures your party will carry on through the night.
