The best party songs for New Year's Eve to dance and sing along to

By J. Florence Pompe

The best party songs 2020 to dance and sing along to

Before putting together your hit list for New Year's Eve, you should think about a few things: Which audience will there be? Are they people up to 30 years of age, younger or just a mixed bag? Of course, you tailor your hit compilation perfectly to the generation of party-goers.

If your audience is very mixed, evergreens, peppered with many new hits, are the best decision. In the end, all guests should be in a good mood and should have known at least three of the songs. This requires songs that have played a lot on the radio or made it into the charts.

There is also the question of what role Schlager should play in your compilation. In any case, you should take at least 20 hit songs from proven compilations with you, if the audience wants them. If the party takes place in a location where you tend to hear rock music, hits will probably not be in great demand. There are always surprises in this area, so you should be well prepared for such requests.

If it is a private party, ask the host in advance exactly what kind of people have been invited: which generations, which professional groups. There are, for example, parties where mostly students appear or only high school graduates from one year or there are mainly family members from all generations.

Only when you have clarified all these points can you start choosing your playlist. Of course, New Year's Eve is not about performing your exquisite taste in music as a DJ, but rather offering the best New Year's Eve party ever. That means a little preparatory work, but delamar will help you!

The best party songs to dance to

Let's dance! Here you can find a list of the best party hits of the last few decades. Decades? Yes, of course, because if you don't want to fill a party with lots of young people under 25 who are mostly into the latest hits, you should take the best party hits from every decade since the 1970s on board.

The 1970s didn't see so many partygoers today, but it was simply the decade with the longest-running and hottest disco hits. If you want to groove and twitch your legs, then this decade is simply a big treasure trove.

Since you don't want to host a theme party, but a New Year's Eve 2020, the mix should be balanced. So don't take too much from the 1970s, but add a few hits from the 1980s, 1990s and of course the 2000s +. A pinch here, a pinch there. You are the chef and you certainly have a knack for creating a convincing hit menu.

Once you have put together your top list from old hits, you mix the whole thing carefully with new chart hits and current dance floor grenades. Make sure that the different generations are addressed precisely and independently of your own favorites. You definitely don't want to have an oldie party, but you don't just want to address the youngsters either. Therefore, no more than two songs in a row should be from a decade.

What are your best party songs?

As a DJ, you have the task of enticing as many people as possible to the New Year's Eve party or in the club. That means, your own taste has to take precedence. Everyone wants to have fun on New Year's Eve and should also get their money's worth. This date is not about introducing newcomers or amusing people with clever mixes, but above all you have to present them with what is known and tried and tested.

So choose good, old hits and new ones that are guaranteed to create a party atmosphere. Melancholy songs, as they have been preferred by German performers for years, just don't go that well with the New Year's Eve party. Also, no particular style should be favored, unless the organizer so wishes. So mix rock and pop music with hits and electronic as well as current dance floor hits. Then you should reach all party members and ignite a great atmosphere before the fireworks.

And now: tell us your best New Year's Eve party songs to dance and sing along to in the comments.
