So get the party started and bring in the New Year with these songs that you just couldn’t get out of your head in 2002:
Hot in Herre by Nelly – It’s one of the best dance songs for your 2010 New Year’s Eve party, but hopefully your party guests will keep all their clothes on. But nude or not, this is one of the greatest dance songs of 2002 for ensuring that all of your 2010 New Year’s Eve party guests get out on the dance floor.
Whenever, Wherever by Shakira – The queen of hip-shaking songs made jaws drop with her sexy video for this infectious pop hit of 2002, so this is one of the best songs to get the girls at your 2010 New Year’s Eve party out on the dance floor doing their best sexy belly dancer impressions.
Oops (Oh My) by Tweet – It’s one of the naughtiest songs of 2002, making this ode to self-love one of the most memorable songs of the decade, and reminds us of a “Tweet” that had nothing to do with Twitter. It’s another song about stripping, so it might be hard making all your 2010 New Year’s Eve party guests keep their clothes on, but at least everyone will be out on the dance floor singing along.
Can’t Get you out of my Head by Kylie Minogue – This is definitely one of my top picks for a 2010 New Year’s Eve party, and one of my personal favorite songs of the past decade. It’s one of the sexiest songs of 2002 by one of the hottest female artists ever, and it will really keep the dance floor packed at your 2010 New Year’s Eve party.
How Your Remind Me by Nickelback – And now for one of the groan-inducing songs of 2002 that was a really big hit at the time. Your party guests may not want to be reminded of one of the most-played songs of the decade, but you’ve got to play it at your 2010 New Year’s Eve party just for the heck of it (it’ll be fun to see how your 2010 New Year’s Eve party guests react to it: will they groan or sing along?).
The Middle by Jimmy Eat World – Have any other songs of the past decade been as upbeat as this one? Once again, it’s a song that involves the removal of clothing, as everyone in the music video is having a great time frolicking around in their skivvies. So if you don’t have a theme for your 2010 New Year’s Eve party yet, maybe you can have a clothing-optional or underwear-only 2010 New Year’s Eve party.
U Got it Bad by Usher – And now for one of the slower songs of 2002, we turn to super sexy crooner Usher and this aching ode to not being able to get over someone. It’s one of the many great songs of the past decade by Usher, and while it may not get your 2010 New Year’s Eve party jumping, it’s one of those songs that your party guests will enjoy reminiscing to.
Complicated by Avril Lavigne – And to further annoy your party guests, here’s another of the songs of the past decade that not everyone at your 2010 New Year’s Eve party will love. But you’ve got to admit that the punk Taylor Swift of the past generation does have some pretty catchy songs, and you know you secretly love this pretty-in-pink punk hit.
Get the Party Started by Pink – Speaking of Pink, no one will get your 2010 New Year’s Eve party started like she will. This is one of those songs of the past decade that’s incredibly hard to get out of your head, and it’s one of the best songs of 2002 to play at the beginning of your 2010 New Year’s Eve party
Hey Baby by No Doubt Featuring Bounty Killer – And keeping in the pink theme, here’s one of the most addicting pop songs of the past decade by another lady who once rocked locks of this popular color. Play it at your New Year’s Eve party, and watch all the girls sing along and get down to one of the best songs by one of the best female artists of 2002.
So from some songs of the decade that you might want to forget to some of the best dance songs of 2002, these songs are sure to make your 2010 New Year’s Eve one that your guests won’t forget. And for more of the best songs of the decade, check out this list of the best of 2003.
