Congratulations, it’s your birthday! You have license to do basically whatever you want: Groove to one of the best party songs, dance like no one’s watching, scarf the best pizza in NYC, sleep through your alarm clock, shout out one of the best karaoke songs from the rooftops, even cry your eyes out. Make sure to have some cake and make the most it—you only turn whatever age once, after all. While you’re busy with all that, we’ve rounded up the best birthday songs to more than ably serve as the soundtrack to your special day.
