The 100 best party songs
Thanks to Spotify and other streaming services, everyone's a DJ these days. But this doesn't mean it's acceptable to cobble together dodgy party playlists filled with soggy bops and half-arsed nearly-bangers. To help you make sure your party goes off like a frog in a sock, we've put together this list of surefire floor-fillers featuring a generous smattering of '90s songs, house songs and R&B songs. Just remember to think of your party playlist like a spag bol: a little bit of cheese is a fine addition, but too much can be overpowering.
