Summer has gone and we’re now experiencing the coldness and dark nights which lead us from Autumn into Winter. Once Halloween has been and gone, it won’t be long until it’s Christmas and then New Year’s Eve! Seems months away at the moment, but before you know it, you’ll be foraging around for that perfect list of songs to play at your party.
It’s always a chore when trying to select a list of the perfect songs to play at your Christmas or New Year’s Eve parties isn’t it? Well, worry not! We at Platinum Disco are here to guide you along the road to a selection of THE tunes to have played at your party! We’ve provided you with 30 top tracks for your New Year’s Eve Party and 20 top tracks for your Christmas Party below. Check them out!

The Top 30 tracks for your New Year’s Eve Party

1. Celebration – Kool & The Gang – A track that is loved by young and old, which will get everybody up on the dance floor after Big Ben’s chimes are heard.
2. Auld Lang Syne – Traditional – One year ends and another year comes rolling in. Most likely song to have you in floods of tears either with joy or with sorrow.
3. The Final Countdown – Europe – Why not rock out as the clock gets ever nearer to midnight? Make sure you have long hair to rock out to this though, or a wig!
4. Instant Replay – Dan Hartman – Probably most known now for being used as the music on the grabber machines at seaside piers, but a classic dance track which you’ll be singing along to in no time.
5. Fancy – Iggy Azalea ft. Charli XCX – You’ll be in the fast lane hoping that your Dad doesn’t throw his best dad dancing moves down on the dance floor! Don’t do it Dad! Think of the kids!!!
6. Uptown Funk – Mark Ronson & Bruno Mars – If you aren’t dancing to this track when it comes on you’re either two left-footed or you’re dead!
7. Y.M.C.A. – The Village People – You know the dance moves to this, don’t lie!
8. I’m A Believer – The Monkees – As soon as you hear this, Shrek will come to mind and you’ll be singing like you’re Donkey!
9. Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick – Ian Dury & The Blockheads – Back in the day this would have been seen as very naughty indeed, but now it’s seen as a funky sing-a-long track.
10. Hot Hot Hot – Arrow – Get your booty down to the floor, before you’re dragged down there! You know you’ll want to dance to this too!!!
11. Macarena – Los del Rio – We all know the dance moves. We do, don’t we?
12. Saturday Night – Whigfield – Is that a duck quacking in the background or are you just pleased to see me?
13. Happy – Pharrell Williams – Clapping is the new Nay Nay when this song starts. Watch out for people bumping into each other though!
14. Rapper’s Delight – The Sugarhill Gang – One of the world’s first rap songs, the thumping bass alone will have you be-bopping with your friends.
15. Wake Me Up Before You Go Go – Wham! – Do the jitterbug! Yes, you over in the corner there eating a sandwich! Get yourself on the dance floor now!
16. Call Me Maybe – Carly Rae Jepsen – One of THE catchy but also most irritating songs ever. It just had to be included for that reason alone!

22. That’s The Way (I Like It) – K.C. & The Sunshine Band – Very naughty back in the day. I wonder what the lyrics are about? 😉
