Can I just say I absolutely hate New Year’s Eve! I’m always single and it can be a bit depressing. No one to kiss at midnight; what a drag! I actually thought I’d have a more positive outlook this year and so I gathered up a great list of songs that would empower my single status. I’m sure there are plenty of single people out there that can relate! My list was influenced by some research on Billboard.com and You tube! I also asked a bunch of my single Nashville peers as well as music that inspires me to smile and forget I’m alone! And so away we go with my top 10 picks for a great New Year’s Eve Party 2010 Style:
10- “Off the Wall” by Michael Jackson
I picked this as an ode to such an icon. It’s symbolic because he has passed this year! He was for the most part of his life a single man! His music has touched the world! Obviously the song is about “the party people night and day, living crazy that’s the only way”. I second that emotion
9-“Empire State of Mind” by Jay-Z and Alicia Keys
I am a native New Yorker and my heart still lives there. Everyone (even if you’re not from NY) has a soft spot for the Big Apple! A song about New York at a party is like a glass of champagne at midnight! “Let’s hear it for New York, New York, New York”.
8-“Let’s Go Crazy” by Prince
This is an oldy but goody. To me a Prince song will make you lose all inhibitions and what better night than New Year’s Eve?
7-“Bad Romance” by Lady Gaga
She is definitely an innovator! No doubt. This song states that following:
“You and me could write a bad romance” We can all relate to that. We’ve all had one or at least wanted one this year admit it!
6-“Single Ladies” by Beyonce
This a crowd please for the ladies. Knowing there a billion other women out there who can sing and feel every word of this song is empowering! Most men hate this song which is also a guilty pleasure. Singing and dancing and enraging a man is always fun!
5-“Just Dance” by Lady Gaga
What can I say Lady Gaga is a fan fave! This song should be played at any and every party especially a New Year’s Party. The classic lyrics:
“I’ve had a little bit too much”, “Where are my key’s I lost my phone” , “Gonna be okay, just dance”
No party would be complete without a song from this icon! This song will make you forget you ever had a relationship! Good or Bad. All you’ll want to do is dance and celebrate your single self.
3-“Who’s Gonna Run This Town” by Rihanna, Jay-Z, Kanye West
This is more of an anthem! “Life’s A Game but it’s not fair I break the rules so I don’t car; I keep doing my own thing walking tall against the ring” So inspiring and makes you want to get up out of your seat!
2-“I Gotta Feeling” by Black Eyed Peas
This gives hope! “Tonight’s Gonna Be A Good Night Woo Hoo”! If this doesn’t get you in a good mood nothing will!
Last but not least my number one pick is …drum roll please…
1-“Live Your Life” by T.I. and Rihanna
This should be everyone’s New Year’s resolution! “Just live your life don’t have no time for no haters”
Be all you can live for you live for today! Happy New Year!
