Everybody likes to party and have a good time, right? Right. But picking out music for having fun can be serious business. That's where this list comes in: it contains some song suggestions - some obvious, others not so much - for partying to. Whether you're at a BBQ or house party, getting ready to hit the club, or even a school function, the songs on this list can not only help you keep the party movin', but might also help you collect compliments on your taste in music.
"Just Fine" was the first single on Mary J. Blige's eighth studio album, Growing Pains. "Just Fine," which was produced by Jazze Pha and Tricky, is a sunny, optimistic and upbeat ditty about how great life is: "I ain't gonna let nothin' get in my way, no matter what nobody has to say," Mary sings.
Bounce with it, drop with it, lean with it, rock with it. Cherish may turn out to be a one-hit wonder, but their one hit, the Southern-fried "Do It To It," featuring Sean Paul (the one from YoungBloodZ, not the dancehall reggae artist), is the perfect party song.
An oldie but goodie from the late King of Pop's Off the Wall album.
Dance like it's the last night of your life. That's the message of Usher's "DJ Got Us Fallin' in Love," which is on Versus, the follow-up to his mega-hit Raymond v. Raymond album. The song, which features the rapper Pitbull, is a high-energy club song that's probably the most dance/electronic music-oriented song he's ever recorded.
