birthday playlist 1

Twist and Shout by The Beatles

An oldie but a goodie, it’s hard not to swing your hips to this classic. Best played at the beginning of the night to encourage people to get moving.

Let’s Dance by David Bowie

“Put on your red shoes and dance the blues”. Another timeless tune, no party is complete without a track from the forever legendary and iconic Bowie.

Play That Funky Music by Wild Cherry

Possibly one of the most recognised bass riffs of our time, there won’t be a single person sitting this funky smash out. Extra points go to the person who plays the best air guitar!

I’m Not Gonna Teach Your Boyfriend How To Dance With You by The Black Kid

This upbeat indie rock song will ensure everyone is bouncing when the catchy chorus kicks in.

birthday playlist 3
Dancing in the Moonlight by Toploader

A global hit that is impossible not to sway and smile to, this cheery song gets people of all ages off their seat.

You Should Be Dancing by the Bee Gees

The first hit that launched the Bee Gees into their disco era and a friendly reminder to your guests. Brownie points for reaching those high notes.

I Wanna Dance With Somebody by Whitney Houston

The late disco diva with several dance classics, this one will have everyone dancing, but let’s leave the singing to the master with the incredible pipes.

birthday playlist 4
(Shake, Shake, Shake) Shake Your Booty by KC & The Sunshine Band

Recognised by everybody, this booty shaking jam will have you wearing out your dancing shoes (and your twerking moves) in no time.

Dance Wiv Me by Dizzee Rascal 

Adding some hip-hop in for a healthy mix, this upbeat track accommodates those who are more prone to a foot-tap than a full blown, sweaty, choreographed routine.

Dancing Queen by ABBA

This dance anthem goes without saying, really. Just look at those jazz hands!


If you have a birthday looming and want to get your guests grooving, our ultimate birthday party playlist is sure to fill the dance floor.
