The Truth About Music

"What's hot, what's not, and whats next in pop music"

Top Six Songs of the Week: 11/8/09-11/14/09

This week I had the opportunity to spin the tunes for a party hosted at my house. I realized that 2009 has been filled with great party music. No genre stands out as much as the dance/electronic/hip-hop genome that has been created during the past year. Starting with the Black Eyed Peas and continuing into Cascada, 3OH!3 and David Guetta this genre exploded in 2009.

With that in mind, this weeks Top 6 Songs of the Week list features the top party songs of 2009. If your having a party, these songs need to be on the playlist:
  1. “Boom Boom Pow” by The Black Eyed Peas: As far as party songs go this is one of the best. One of the first songs of the year to make the push towards the electronic sound that the pop music world is obsessed with, the Black Eyed Peas paved the road with “The E.N.D.”
  2. “Evacuate The Dancefloor” by Cascada: It had been almost five years since “Everytime We Touch” was the hottest song in the U.S. and finally Cascada returned with a brand new single to light up nightclubs.
  3. “When Love Takes Over” by David Guetta (feat. Kelly Rowland): Guetta is a perfect example of me being a hypocrite. When I first heard his music I was very dismissive towards him but now that I’ve actually sat down and listened (and danced) to his music, I’ve realized this is one of the party songs of the year.
  4. “Starstruck” by 3OH!3 (feat. Katy Perry): I would like to make it clear that I am standing by my original theory that this song is terrible. Lucky for the band, Katy Perry stepped in and made it a very workable song.
  5. “My Life Would Suck Without You” by Kelly Clarkson: In a slight variation from her comfort zone, Clarkson’s first single from “All I Ever Wanted” was a rocking dance song from very early in the year.
  6. “Good Girls Go Bad” by Cobra Starship: Finally a band that we’ve been watching forever released a good song and look what happened. Not only are they being played in alt-rock venues, they are blasting this song in clubs all across America.
I’m sure I’ve left off a lot of great party songs from 2009 so please let me know what I’m missing…
