1. First and foremost, start the party (duh).
Black Eyed Peas, “Let’s Get It Started”
Andrew W.K., “Party Hard”
Pitbull, “Don’t Stop The Party”
2. And don’t forget to give the DJ a shout out.
Madonna, “Hey Mr. DJ”
Rihanna, “Please Don’t Stop the Music”
Ke$ha, “Tik Tok”
3. Make sure everyone is having a good time. NO MATTER WHAT.
Owl City and Carly Rae Jepsen, “Good Time”
LMFAO, “Party Rock Anthem”
Black Eyed Peas, “I Got a Feelin’”
Just don’t go full Rebecca Black and piss everyone off.
4. Alright, you’re doing good, how are your moves?
Real 2 Reel, “I Like to Move It”
Miley Cyrus, “Party in the USA”
Maroon 5, “Moves Like Jagger”
5. Don’t worry if you’re not feeling great.
6. If you gotta get political, get political.
“Gangnam Style” was actually a scathing takedown of Seoul’s wealthiest neighborhood.
7. Don’t be angry, be FIERCE.
Cee-lo Green, “Fuck You”
Lady Gaga, “Telephone”
Britney Spears - Til The World Ends
8. Because at the end of the day, partying is and has always been about YOU.
