Champagne wishes, caviar dreams. Wherever you find yourself tonight, here’s my recommended New Year’s Eve playlist for tonight’s festivities. Whether you’ll be celebrating with friends or staying in and keeping it low key, enjoy the music so stay safe, kids.
1. Celebration – Kool and the Gang A necessity.
2. U Can’t Touch This – M.C. Hammer Because some nineteen year old will be wearing hammer pants and heels tonight.
3. Tonight (Best You Ever Had) – John Legend Feat. Ludacris John Legend is from my hometown and I saw him in concert last week, so for those of you with dates tonight, rock out to this jam. If you’re single, just Ally McBeal it and play it in your head.
4. Give Me Everything – Pitbull Feat. Ne Yo, Afrojak, & Nayer I think Pitbull performed this song on last year’s Ryan Seacrest special, but it’s still a worthy party anthem. I also have a secret Pitbull Pandora station, which I have to represent properly.
5. New York, New York – Frank Sinatra Because everyone wants to be there on New Year’s Eve.
6. Alcohol – Brad Paisley For my redneck friends and those under representing the glorious genre of country music. And yes, I have George Jones and Waylon Jennings on my iTunes account, they’re just too depressing for NYE.
7. Last Dance – Donna Summers This is just a given. For those of you who like to go all out, all night.
8. Tearin’ Up My Heart – ‘N Sync Because you’re drunk and need something to sing along to that somewhat makes you sound coherent.
9. On the Floor – Jennifer Lopez Feat. Pitbull This song really isn’t that exciting, but it makes you want to move which is really what dancing is all about.
10. The Best Is Yet to Come – Tony Bennett Sinatra might’ve sang it first, but Bennett does it best.
11. Shots – LMFAO Feat. Lil’ Jon No explanation is really needed.
12. Champagne Life – Ne Yo I guess it’s the one night a year that revolves around this drink.
13. Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It) – Beyonce For those couples who do the cliche thing and get engaged on New Year’s Eve.
14. Auld Lang Syne – Mairi Campbell and David Francis From the first Sex and the City movie. Hands down, best Auld Lang Syne version. Ever.
