A party is a stale one without some good music. Whether you’re hosting a birthday party, a holiday get-together, or a casual Friday night bash, you need to have the right music. Here are some tips that will make your next party a better one.
When creating your playlist, you have control over the theme, style, and genres. You should always think about your audience when creating your playlist. Do you want to have a chill party? Play some mid-to-low tempo music at a low volume.
Do you want to liven up a boring office party? Play Top 40 hits and dance music to get the crowd going. The goal is to play music that everyone will enjoy. Classics are a big hit with baby boomers while teens love listening to EDM (electronic dance music).
Variety is important and your playlist must have it. Include a variety of slow songs, mid-tempo songs, pop music, fast-paced music, and other genres that keep your guests on their toes. Make sure that the music evenly flows. Don’t play Motown and switch over to hip-hop.
Don’t be afraid to play hit songs from popular artists. Most of the top pop artists are sure to get a crowd going. They may not be your favorite, but it’s fun to see everyone having a good time. When in doubt, play classics and hits.
After all, it’s still your party. Don’t be afraid to add a few of your favorite songs to the mix. If you have songs that you think your guests will love, add them to your playlist but don’t overdo it. Don’t use your playlist to convince your guests to listen to your favorite music.
If you have a few lesser-known songs you know they’ll love, sandwich them in between two popular songs. Make your list based on songs that have a similar vibe or style. Your guests will love the fact that you’re incorporating some of your favorite songs.
You’re showing them that you appreciate them and want them to have a good time. If the song kills the vibe, then the next song can bring the party back to life.
