Out partying and bracing the freezing temperatures or staying in by yourself/with closed circle of your people – whichever you choose, having a killer New Year’s Eve playlist is essential to see out the good old times of 2017 and welcome the unknown with 2018. The songs found here is a collection of funky, melancholic and rock tunes that we found the most fitting for the occasion.
Although LAYLA is living the ultralife as Josephine of Oh Wonder lately, there could not be a thematic playlist without her 2013 solo track “New Year,” nor without All Time Low’s old-school pop-punk hit “Poppin’ Champagne.”
“Pain, pain go away, come back another day” – how sweet it will be chanting along to the finest song off Neck Deep’s new gem “Where Do We Go When We Go.” We all need a good chunk of kick-ass spirit in 2018. Kesha is also here to shake the house with “Let ‘Em Talk.” For those fancying a laid back disco-inspired pop, HAIM and BØRNS could be the right choice. All the emo kids out there, we did not forget about you either. We are still just as dark inside despite enjoying shiny pop tunes lately – MCR, P!ATD, TØP a.k.a. all the good stuff of past and present – and there is much more to be found.
Closing the list is “Another Night On Mars” by The Maine dedicated to all the friends and artists that helped to get through the whirlwind that was 2017, because with them, anywhere is home.
