Dance-party playlist: 100 greatest songs for an epic party
House party, BBQ, wedding party or just a bedroom disco, we have the party playlist you need to get the place moving.
Tue Jul 16 2013
You’re having a party, you say? Not sure what to cue up on your iPhone? Rest assured, we have you covered. In fact, we’re a little worried that our playlist of the 100 greatest party songs ever recorded by human beings may actually cause your dance floor to spontaneously combust in a firework explosion of pure joy and body-moving ecstasy. That’s how good we think it is.
Our criteria were simple: You hear the intro of the song, and you immediately go skidding toward the dance floor. Nothing less was acceptable. So of course, you’ll find tracks from big hitters like Michael Jackson, Madonna and Beyoncé. And there are one-hit-wonderful tracks galore: “Maniac” by Michael Sembello, “Here Comes the Hotstepper” by Ini Kamoze and “Teach Me How to Dougie” by Cali Swag District, to name a few. There are songs your mom likes, songs your cool younger brother likes and above all, songs you like: Party hits so potent, they get you singing along in the supermarket, or air-punching when they come on your running mix at the gym.
In short: all killer, no filler. Let the revelry commence!

More Time Out music lists
I don't know WHAT these other reviewers are thinking! This is the greatest list ever.... I've been dancing around the house all night to it! Yeah -- it might be a tad nostalgic but these songs have stood the test of time folks! That's the mark of a true hit. Someday you'll have your moment in the sun... why not enjoy these classics instead of whining??
This really is awful. Maybe you should have said top 100 songs for a party full of 45 year olds with kids who will have "a glass of wine" because it's Friday! Might have to push the trip to Bed, Bath and Beyond back tomorrow morning!
terrible playlist this is retarded if your going to put something out there like this put something good
This is so pathetic! TimeOut NY - seriously - you're in the new music center of the world! Did you rip this list off of a yahoo search or something?
