Songs That Your Party Cannot Be Without

Music is the key to any party, and can turn it from a simple get-together that quickly runs out of steam, into a truly enjoyable event that no one is keen on leaving. Here at Costello Entertainments, we provide our services to those wanting a Mobile Disco, and are well aware of some of the songs that your party cannot be without.

In this post we want to help make sure that your party is not only enjoyable for you but also for people of all ages, so we have created a list of the top five party tracks from the last five decades for your aural pleasure.

The decade of peace, love and these beauties:

2. The Monkees – Daydream Believer
3. Jackie Wilson – (Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher And Higher
4. Helen Shapiro – Walkin’ Back To Happiness

Any one of those is guaranteed to get the room dancing and singing.

1. Gloria Gaynor – I Will Survive
2. ABBA – Dancing Queen
3. The Bee Gees – Stayin’ Alive

2. Jump – Van Halen
3. Sweet Child o’ Mine – Guns and Roses

1. Hey Ya – Outkast
2. Crazy – Gnarls Barkley
3. Hot In Here – Nelly
4. Mr Brightside – The Killers
