The Best Party Songs of 2011

Yes! In time for NYE! This is my favorite year-end list to make because its obviously the most fun. And I give it the least amount of stress. Read on for all my favorite party/dance jams split into three increasingly heated sections. Almost all these tracks could fit into the last one but I had to split them up somehow! There is not much organization here, just grooves for miles. So polish those dancing shoes and get limber because I wanna see you bounce!

Note that the list ends with a very appropriate title (and song) for New Years Eve. (Also note that the 3 songs before that make a great combo title.) So hit play on the whole 3-part playlist at 21:31:30 if you want perfect new years eve timing!

    Great picks. Hadn’t heard a lot of them. Definitely including the Bastian song in a Prince mix I’m working on. Great song.
