Holiday Tunes: NYE Edition

As you’re considering who’ll be your New Year’s Eve crush, giggling without control and observing the never-ending sea of sequin dresses (luckily, you went for a velvet look), you feel incredible.  It’s almost the New Year, filled with new resolutions and you are determined to make this the best night (yet) of your life, right?

You’re playing the ideal scene from a movie your head, the clock is ticking down and you’re surrounded by your friends, grinning.  The night is perfect- but there’s something you cannot ignore…the horrendous rap song from ‘09 blasting in the background. Ugh, buzz kill alert.

Listening to the hottest songs on New Years Eve not only puts you into the best mood possible, but also transforms your mindset into the next year and out of the old one. The best songs this New Years Eve are going to be vocal-based house music.  Below are a few must-haves for your NYE playlists:

“Sweet Nothing” by Calvin Harris and Florence Welch
This is one of the most popular songs of the moment – Calvin Harris’s upbeat melody with Florence’s enchanting voice combine to create sweet perfection.

“Scream & Shout” by Will.i.am, featuring Britney Spears.
Yep, that’s right. Britney makes (another) comeback in her new song with Will.i.am. She combines the old, pop spirit of the young Britney with the newest and most up-and-coming sound- house.  This song is sure to get everyone dancing.

“Don’t You Worry Child” by Swedish House Mafia
If you want to get the people singing and willing to put all their fears behind as they leap towards the future, this is your jam. It’s calming, yet optimistic, tone makes for a happy and euphoric mood as you count down the seconds on the clock.

“Can’t Stop Me” by Afrojack and Shermanology
Feel like dancing until you can’t feel your feet anymore? This progressive house song draws you in from the very first few beats.
