Sad to say the Year 2008 will soon be gone, which means get ready to rock in the New Year 2009. Are you having a huge New Years Eve party or maybe you are going to one? New Years Eve is one of the times of the year where we all have the perfect excuse to drink if needed. I mean why not celebrate the New Year with a Champaign toast, or a New Years Eve Specialty drink while dancing to some good New Years Eve music. What New Years Eve songs will you choose? That’s a tough one, because there is only a certain amount of New Years Eve songs that were released, but you can think outside the box and use songs that are about celebrating like “Celebration” by Kool & The Gang, “Beautiful Day” by U2, or “I’m Still Standing” by Elton John, which I hope you will be after drinking all those New Years Eve drinks.
Picking a New Years Eve playlist/song can be really fun, entertaining, and will keep your guest dancing the night away instead of sitting there twiddling their thumbs or as some would say standing their like a bump on a log. You must pick a song that has a beat, meaning, and variety to it. Don’t just pick fast songs, because not everyone is a dancing machine unless they are drunk off their butt and will start dancing like an animal. Hey that’s another song you can use for New Years Eve when all the drunks are acting crazy. ‘Animal” is recorded by Nickelback or Def-Leppard.
Ok here are my choices for New Years Eve songs. Remember you can add on to this list by using your creativity side which I know we all have some more than others. If you are going have to young children at your New Years Party please include them. Try to find some kids New Years Eve songs by searching on the internet.
