There is no denying that Christmas really is the best time to let your hair down and have some fun and whether you’re hitting the work’s corporate Christmas party and trying not to embarrass yourself too badly in front of your colleagues, enjoying a festive night out with friends or just celebrating at home with family – at least one Christmas party is a must. But one thing’s for sure, no Christmas party venue is complete without the perfect party soundtrack, because let’s face it, whether it’s the twinkling lights, the sparkling decorations or a few too many glasses of mulled wine, Christmas party tunes will always manage to get you up dancing!
Is it That Time of Year Already?
It’s true that Christmas songs seem to be played earlier each year (usually around September, the same time that Christmas cards appear in the shops!), but when you’re in a festive mood a good Christmas song will always get your toe tapping. And your favourite Christmas tune can say a lot about you. Yes, if your overly optimistic and excitable come December – you know, the kind of person who wears their Christmas jumper with pride – then Mariah Carey’s classic, ‘All I want for Christmas’ is definitely for you. If ‘Driving home for Christmas’ by Chris Rea has you singing along you’ve obviously been working too hard and need to wind down at the corporate Christmas party. But even if you’re a ’bah humbug’ type there’s one tune at Christmas parties that will always have you arm in arm with your fellow revellers, singing at the top of your voice and that’s ‘Fairy-tale of New York’ by The Pogues.
And let’s not forget the great selection of amazing party tunes played throughout 2012. From the pop-tastic Nicki Minaj to the sultry Rihanna, even that annoyingly catchy summer track from Carly Rae Jepson is bound to get your toe tapping. The boys have been busy too with dance tunes from LMFAO, Flo Rida and uncountable anthems from David Ghetta. But once the beer is flowing and the turkey has been munched, who can say they won’t be on the dance floor doing a dozen crazy dance moves to the love it or loathe it track from Psy, Gangnam Style.
Whichever tunes get you up on your feet this Christmas, we hope you make it a Christmas party worth remembering!
