SONGS FOR A DANCE PARTY MY MOM WOULD ATTEND

Put this on shuffle and you'll have a rocking time (Friday night, 8-9 PM)
  1. Bang Bang by David Sanborn
    The best song ever written about cornbread and chili. Prominently featured in your mom's old Jazzercise class.
  2. Don't You Worry 'Bout a Thing by Stevie Wonder
    Continuing with the Latin theme, Olivia and Jake danced to this song in your mom's favorite episode of Scandal.
  3. Come on Over by Christina Aguilera
    The second-best pop song of the 90s (As Long as You Love Me is first, but this is a party). BEWARE: there are two versions of this song. Do not pick the radio edit.
  4. Come Get It Bae by Pharrell Williams
    Mom doesn't know Miley's on this song (don't tell her; she does not like the phase Miley's in), but Pharrell is her fave judge on The Voice.
  5. Shut Up and Dance by Walk the Moon
    Moms go nuts for this song. Every. Time.
  6. Heaven by Los Lonely Boys
    Wow your mom loves Latin-influenced pop songs. This one is a dance party buffer, definitely a hitting-the-snacks tune. (Also: the snacks are delicious)
  7. Love on Top by Beyoncé
    Obviously.
  8. Uptown Funk by Bruno Mars
    "Did you see him perform this on SNL? I've almost got the moves down."
  9. Grazing in the Grass by The Friends of Distinction
    You can try to sneak the Raven Symone version by, but I can't guarantee the moms won't notice.
  10. Love Will Keep Us Together by Captain and Tennille
    She will! She will! She will! SHEE WILLL (love this song)
  11. Talk Dirty by Jason Derulo
    They'll pretend to scoff, but this is your mom's jam.
  12. Trouble by Iggy Azalea and Jennifer Hudson
    Mom has been watching Jennifer Hudson's carpool karaoke on repeat since it aired on James Corden (he's so cute).
  13. Forget You by Cee Lo Green
    EDITED VERSION ONLY
  14. Yoga by Janelle Monáe
    If this song is too edgy for your specific group of moms, go with Dance Apocalyptic.
  15. The Love You Save by Jackson 5
    A relatively-deep cut that will make moms swear by your musical knowledge.
  16. Jet Airliner by Steve Miller Band
    DAD. THIS IS NOT YOUR PLAYLIST.
  17. I Wanna Dance With Somebody by Whitney Houston
    Saving All My Love for You is her favorite Whitney jam, but this is a party gosh dang it.
  18. Yeah! by Usher
    Because moms won't admit that they also love Hot in Herre.
  19. I Feel the Earth Move by Carole King
    All right guys, party's over, but there's no reason you can't groove on the way out.
