Silent Bob,October 10th, 2018

Here at BooBoo Magoo’s we like to think that we’re experts at getting people up on the dancefloor. So if you’re looking for inspiration for your next big bash why not try some of these absolute party classics?


#10 – Finally, CeCe Peniston.

From her debut album, this is an epic 90’s track is an all-time favourite with partygoers everywhere. It’s almost impossible to sit still while her powerhouse vocals get your legs jumping.



#9 –  I Wanna Dance With Somebody, Whitney Houston.

Icon and legend, Whitney created some of the most memorable tracks of the last century. This song from 1987 never fails to have you grabbing your friends and exhorting them to dance with you.



#8 – Shout, The Isley Brothers

Before Lulu hijacked it there was this amazing version of the song. It’s so upbeat it almost hurts and who doesn’t love it when a song tells you to put your hands up and shout?



#7 – Country Roads, John Denver

The various remixes of this classic never fail to get people out of their seats. It’s also a great track for the end of the night when you want to give people the hint to hit the country road and get themselves off home.



#6 – Don’t You Want Me, The Human League

This is not only a party classic but also a karaoke go to. It’s a duet, giving you lots of opportunities to sing to your friends and the chorus is so catchy it will have the whole room jumping and shouting, don’t you want me baby!!



#5 – I’m Still Standing, Elton John

He’s the king and queen of a power ballad. Everyone knows the words to the classic and it will get a room fired up the moment they hear those opening bars.



#4 – Love Shack, B52’s

A campy classic that’s a total crowd pleaser. So jump in your Chrysler that’s as big as a whale and get on down!



#3 – You Make My Dreams Come True, Hall and Oates

Not just a moustache and an epic hairdo. These guys churned out so many top 10 hits it’s almost unreal. This feel-good groove is one of the best and is guaranteed to put everyone in a good mood.



#2 – Sir Duke, Stevie Wonder

A bit of brass just takes every song to another level of awesome. Stevie is a hit maker and Sir Duke is no exception. Written to honour Duke Ellington, the legendary jazz musician, it’s delighting crowds 40 years after it’s release.



#1 – Bohemian Rhapsody, Queen

Routinely shouted in house parties, clubs and bars around the world. This epic baroque saga transcends race, religion and creed. Put it on and dare people not to be strutting around, power grabbing and doing their best GALILEO!
