80's classics that shouldn't be forgotten at pre-drinks
Getting all glammed up, turning up the music, and pouring out the drinks are all key ingredients for a great night out.
But the most important is the pre-drinks playlist. The most important playlist of your life. Forget about those chart hits - these 80s classics are just the thing to heat up the night.
Whitney Houston - I Wanna Dance With Somebody
Not only did Whitney have some huuuuge talent, but this song is a belter and will no doubt have you dancing around the kitchen, wine in hand.
Wham- Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go
George Michael was the king of 80s pop, but this tune will never get old. Crank it up!
Cyndi Lauper - Girls Just Want To Have Fun
This go-to female jam has been on party playlists for over 20 years and it still sounds a treat! Having featured in movies such as Clueless and Baby Mama, this female anthem is a must on that playlist.
Soft Cell - Tainted Love
No. 1 in 17 countries when first released, the famous synth opening chords of this classic are renowned.
Tears For Fears - Everybody Wants To Rule The World
In 1986, this tune won Best Single at the Brit Awards—a long time ago but still, the song is so catchy and a great way to test out some of those dance moves.
Salt-N-Pepa - Push It
One of the most famous 80s classics, Push It really does push the boundaries with a rap/pop tune that everyone can sing along to.
Journey - Don't Stop Believin'
If you first heard this song on Glee or were a fan way before then due to you or your parent's cool taste in music, then you already know how good it feels to belt this song in the car. But playing it at pre-drinks is quite cool too. Give it a try!
Van Halen - Jump
Yes Van Halen is a rock band, and yes playing rock at pre-drinks may feel strange but this song is so good you won't mind. Why not educate all your pals by rocking out to this amazing track?
