Nowadays, if you’ve been to one party then you’ve pretty much been to them all. This is because of bottle service culture, and the predictable music soundtrack that accompanies it. For some odd reason, folks continue to party and dance to songs that ran their course many moons ago.
We also live in a new world where once a song becomes popular, it invades every form of American media, guaranteeing overkill. Take “Uptown Funk” by Mark Ronson featuring Bruno Mars, for example. Not only is it dominating radio, but it’s dominating television spots and movie trailers as well. Do we still want to hear a song at every party after it’s been used to sell laundry detergent? America’s party scene is in dire need of a music purge, so maybe it’s time to get the following songs out of the paint for good.
“Blurred Lines” – Robin Thicke featuring Pharrell & T.I.
Soon as you hear “Everybody get up,” just go ahead and leave.
“In Da Club” – 50 Cent
This song was released in 2003 and it’s now 2015. You can find another birthday song.
“Timber”- Pitbull featuring Ke$ha
You gotta fight the DJ the next time he fires this baby up.
“I Got A Feeling” – Black Eyed Peas
No way a good night can still be had to this song, time to let this and the fist pump go.
“Yeah” – Usher featuring Lil Jon & Ludacris
If you still get hype when this song comes on, then you still wear fitted hats with blazers.
“Shots” – LMFAO featuring Lil Jon
The irony in shots being the sole reason we were able to tolerate this song in the first place. We’re sober now.
“Hotel Room Service” – Pitbull
It’s hard to pinpoint just one Pitbull song that needs to go away.
“Happy” – Pharrell
This song started out in a movie that kept people’s kid’s occupied. Now it keeps party people occupied on the dance floor. How the hell did that happen?!
“Wild Ones” – Flo-rida
Sia gets a pass but this song does not.
“Empire State of Mind” – Jay Z featuring Alicia Keys
It was all good until this song started popping up in car commercials.
