Crafting the Perfect Playlist for Your Party

The tastiest food, the right guests, even the ideal theme will mean nothing at your next party if you don’t have the perfect playlist. Whether its too slow, too fast, too weird, or too lame, if the music’s not right, your guests will leave in droves and you will be sitting alone at 10 PM in your best party clothes scarfing down a tub of hummus using only your fingers. Music is the single most important factor in creating a party that will be talked about for years to come, and we at Sound Sensation Entertainment make it our business to create playlists that make people want to dance the night away. Here’s some tips on how to ensure your next gathering is dance worthy!

Know Your Crowd

If your friends all wear cowboy hats and boots, chances are they won’t be impressed by a playlist filled with the latest in hip hop or death metal; stick to a mixture of country, both old and new, and your celebration will last till the sun comes up. You know your friends, so play to what they enjoy, and if your tastes differ, you can still drop a Taylor Swift or Drake song into the mix every once in a while. You want to have fun, too!

Use the Internet

If you’re not completely sure of your crowd, head to the internet, type top playlists into your browser, and an endless selection of music will appear! You can get more detailed if you want to play it safe: top playlists for 20 somethings, top playlists for wedding celebrations, top playlists for people who only wear jeans to clean houses! The music suggested will be sure to be a hit at your party!

Every Other Song on the List Should Be by Justin Timberlake

Obviously, we are only joking here—or are we? Justin has been in the music business for a very long time, and we have yet to meet a person who can’t help but sing along to one of his tunes! From his early days in NSYNC to his solo performances of today, JT knows how to get even the shyest people out of their seats and on to the dance floor!
