At every party, bar, and cookout, you’ll inevitably be drunk as a skunk, and singing your heart out. Slurring words and embarrassing dancing comes with the territory, so be prepared for videos to be all over Facebook within the hour. It’s just the nature of the beast, so there’s no stopping it.
Since you don’t have the comfort of your car or shower to hide you from the other people watching, you’re pretty determined to win that first grammy award right now. Chances are, it’ll be to one of these songs that you’ll be belting out.
Poison – “Nothin’ But a Good Time”
This song was an instant hit when it was released, and it now occupies a comfortable spot in most party playlists, or at least should. If you haven’t heard this song, give it a listen, and you’ll understand why every drunk idiot should try their hand at losing their voice to it. It’s pretty hard to belt out though, so good luck trying to sound good.
Kenny Loggins – “Danger Zone”
Thanks to Tom Cruise and his stealth ways in Top Gun, this song finds its way onto our list. While it doesn’t always get played at parties, and not many people actually know all the lyrics, only the chorus, people should find themselves getting wild to this shit. Light up a shot, and you’ll know you’re entering the danger zone.
Journey – “Don’t Stop Believin’”
Journey is one of the greatest bands of the 80′s. With tons of hits, their music is recognizable and catchy, and “Don’t Stop Believin’” is by far the most recognizable. Even if you aren’t a small town girl or a city boy, born and raised in South Detroit, you love this song… or there’s something seriously wrong with you.Â Hell, even Family Guy loves it!
Neil Diamond – “Sweet Caroline”
At almost every sporting event in the country, this song will start blaring over the speakers.Â Suddenly everyone in the row, even if they’re complete strangers, put their arms around one another and start adding the iconic, “BA BA BA,” and “SO GOOD, SO GOOD, SO GOOD”.Â So when someone puts this American classic on at a party, it’s your fucking duty as a citizen to start singing at the top of your lungs.
Billy Joel – “Piano Man”
Perhaps the greatest song by Joel, Piano man is an awesome refresher from the rock, rap, and house music that usually gets played at parties. Even though it’s a little mellower than what’s typically on your playlist, it’s a damn classic. Everyone loves it, and, lt’s face it, any song about going out to a bar at 9 0′clock should fit right in.
