Do you look forward to your birthday all year long, or is it just another day on the calendar for you?
Whether you enjoy celebrating your special day, or you just like to have a nice, quiet dinner with your sweetheart, your birthday is a special occasion. It gives your friends, relatives and loved ones a chance to celebrate YOU!
If you are planning to celebrate your next milestone birthday with a big party, then you are going to need music. The 80s gave us so much fun, feel good music, we decided to put together a mini-playlist of eight great party hits from the “MTV decade.”
Now, I’m sure you can come up with eight more great party songs from the 80s for your playlist. Heck, I know I could probably come up with 80 more party songs from that decade. I know I had to really whittle the playlist down for this website post. But, in my humble opinion, these are eight must-have party anthems from the 1980’s.
Variety is the key for your party playlist. You have to get a little rock, a little pop, and a little dance music into the mix. Everyone has different tastes in music, but when you stick to the biggest hits, you can usually get the party going, even if you’ve invited a few music “snobs” who won’t let on that they actually like these fun songs.
The eight great birthday party hits from the 80s listed below are in no particular order. Just watch the videos and figure out for yourself whether you think these suggestions will make it on to your birthday party playlist. So grab another cold one, slice yourself a piece of cake, crank up the tunes, and have a very Happy Birthday!
