Hens Party Playlist Guide 2019
Are you organising a hen party for your best friend? Have you thought about the music you want to play at the event?
It’s easy to overlook the party music playlist for this since most people think of the venue, the food, and the activities first. You might not realise it, but music has a crucial impact on a hen party’s success.
Trend expert Shanon Cook said, via Martha Stewart Weddings, that playing your best friend’s favourite songs at her hen party is part of celebrating her status as a bride-to-be. But aside from narrowing down her best-loved songs, here’s a Hen Party Playlist Guide 2019 to make your planning easier.
1. Songs to get the party started.
A hen party begins the moment you dress up, put on makeup, and start getting ready as a group. You and your friends should be in the right groove from the start.
So, you must have warm-up songs blasting on the speakers to kick off one of the most exciting nights of your life. Among the songs you should have on your playlist to get the party started include:
- Run the World (Girls) – Beyoncé
- Sexyback – Justin Timberlake
- Work from Home – Fifth Harmony and Ty Dolla $ign
- Wannabe – The Spice Girls
- Get the Party Started – P!nk
2. Songs that make you get up and dance.
As soon as you’ve warmed up, you’ll likely be dancing and grooving on the dance floor with your besties. What better way to enjoy the hen party than with a danceable song you can perform impromptu together? There’s no other song in this world for that like Single Ladies by Beyoncé.
You should also have these dance party songs on your playlist:
- Blurred Lines – Robin Thicke, Pharrell Williams, and T.I.
- My Humps – Black Eyed Peace
- Bootylicious – Destiny’s Child
- Uptown Funk – Bruno Mars
- I Wanna Dance with Somebody – Whitney Houston
It bears noting that while the last song is from 30 years ago, it’s a hens’ party anthem according to Cook.
3. Songs you and your friends can sing to.
All that dancing might be fun, but it’s the singing that will really see your girlfriends let lose at this exciting hen party. You want them to be pumped up, excited, and comfortable before the male strippers perform.
These songs on your playlist are guaranteed to make the girls sing their hearts out:
- Girl on Fire (Inferno Version) – Alicia Keys and Nikki Minaj
- I Want It That Way – the Backstreet Boys
- Lady Marmalade – Christina Aguilera, Pink, Mya, and Lil’ Kim
- Respect – Aretha Franklin
- This Kiss – Faith Hill
- Roar – Katy Perry
4. Songs to wind down the exciting night.
After the drinking, dancing, singing, and howling at the stripper dance, it’s time to wind down with some smooth or chill out music. The drive back home should be relaxing, but the party vibe should still be alive.
Pop up these songs on your playlist then:
- Marry You – Bruno Mars
- Shape of You – Ed Sheeran
- We Found Love – Rihanna and Calvin Harris
- Shoop – Salt-N-Pepa
If you still come up short for your Hens Party Playlist, it’s best to ask the rest of the invited friends about their favourite songs. Cook said that if you know your audience, you can easily come up with a specific playlist that will appeal to them.
Remember, music is a personal preference, and it will help to amp up the hen party if you’ve got a couple of songs that each of the guests has picked out.
Thanks to technology, it will be easy to prepare this playlist. If you have a Spotify, Tidal, Apple Music account or a similar service, you may also browse through other song selection ideas on those sites as well.
