Set the tone for party season and beyond with fun, upbeat tunes guaranteed to get you and your besties rocking out. The perfect party music playlist ideas to sing along with in the car or play DJ at your pal’s party, just add them to your mix, crank up the volume, and the dancing begin.


“Kiss Me More" by Doja Cat feat. SZA

This bright and bubbly track will makes you tap your feet and dance without even trying. It's about openly communicating with your partner about your needs—which we're always here for. Pop this song on in the car, and your friends will sing (or scream) it as loud and carefree as they like.


“I Gotta Feeling" by The Black Eyed Peas

Whether you're planning a house party or need the perfect pump-up song for your next workout, "I Gotta Feeling" is the throwback you could never forget. This 2009 song gives off Y2K club vibes, and is the perfect excuse to dance like nobody’s watching.


“Just Dance" by Lady Gaga feat. Colby O'Donis

An oldie but a goodie. Lady Gaga shot to stardom after the release of her record-smashing debut album, The Fame, in 2008. With hits like "Poker Face," "Paparazzi," and "Just Dance”—being her first, it’s the OG for good reason. Such great energy and always uplifting, it’s one of those epic tunes you never get bored of. 


“No Tears Left to Cry" by Ariana Grande

What song is better suited for a party music playlist than one that's all about loving, living, and vibing? Not only is Ariana Grande's "No Tears Left to Cry" a great song to belt in the car while you're driving with friends, it's also an instant dance floor filler. And, with such a beautiful message—that challenging moments won't last forever and it's possible to find happiness again, grab your ride or dies and go in for that group sing/scream of the chorus. 


“Don’t Stop the Music" by Rihanna

Rihanna's iconic 2000s pop hit "Don't Stop the Music" is a must for every party playlist. Instantly recognizable, this is a banger everyone knows the words to. Expect a packed dance floor and plenty of wild moves when this tune hits.


“About Damn Time" by Lizzo

Are you looking for a song that can improve your self-esteem and your mood? Listen to just about any of Lizzo's top hits for this, but “About Damn Time” just nails it in every way. Add it to your playlist, then hit that play button at your next get-together, and watch as your BFFs just let loose.


“Every Time We Touch" by Cascada

"Every Time We Touch" is the definition of a nostalgic club hit from the 2010s. The electronic, upbeat track is an instant happiness booster. Whether you’re dancing with your friends or you’re listening to it while you’re getting ready to go out, Cascada's chart-topping song will make you feel alive in the best possible way. All about the magic of a blossoming romance, its beat, plus Cascada's angelic voice, will make you feel that spark. 


“Timber” by Pitbull, feat. Ke$ha

No one knows how to pump out dance-worthy party jams like Pitbull—there isn’t a party music playlist around without a Pitbull tune (or two) on it. Put together with the talents of grungy pop princess Ke$ha, the duo's music is unstoppable. That's why the 2013 hit "Timber" was such a smasher. The song encourages party-goers to let loose and have a night they'll never forget, making this hit a perfect addition to any party music playlist.
