Top 10 Party Songs 2008
Some of the most popular artists released the top 10 party songs in 2008. Whether they were new on the scene or had been around for years, these singers came up with songs that contributed to various styles of dances and provide catchy tunes that help create a party atmosphere.
- "I Kissed a Girl" gave Katy Perry the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart for seven weeks. It went on to become number one on charts in more than 20 countries and became the best selling single so far in the 21st century, making it a party favorite. This song was co-written by Perry and is from her 2008 album "One of the Boys."
- "Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)" by Beyonce Knowles is so supercharged and bouncy that even young children love to dance to it! This catchy tune is a combination of rhythm and blues, pop, and dance. Winning "Song of the Year" at the 52nd Grammy Awards ceremony, "Single Ladies" was also ranked number one on Rolling Stone's "Best 100 Singles of 2008". It is definitely one of the 10 best party songs 2008.
- "Bleeding Love" was the international hit single from fantastic British singer Leona Lewis' debut album, "Spirit." There were more than four million digital downloads in the United States and over one million copies sold in the United Kingdom.
- "Love Lockdown" from Kanye West's 2008 album "808s & Heartbreak" was a change from his usual hip hop style. It was a worthwhile decision because the song's premier at the 2008 MTV Video Music Awards resulted in its debuting at number three on the Billboard Hot 100 in the United States and ended up selling over three million copies.
- "All Summer Long" gave Kid Rock not only a number one international hit but also allowed him to cross over into country music and obtain a first top ten hit there. From his 2008 album "Rock N Roll Jesus", this song was the star of the Summer Jam that year.
- "American Boy" was an effervescent song in 2008 where Kanye West contributed a verse and John Legend had a cameo in the music video. They both thus helped British singer Estelle make a big success of her United States debut.
- "Nothing Ever Happened" is a very unusual song by Deerhunter that combines the stillness of being inside a car and the contrast of al the noise that goes on outside a car. The last two minutes is filled with drums, bass, and guitars that can give you goose bumps and will likely pump up your next party!
- "Quick Canal" by Atlas Sound in its second album "Logos". It is a thirteen-minute soundscape that was posted by mistake in 2008 by Deerhunter's Bradford Cox. Cox said that he was supposed to add vocals but hadn't recorded them yet. This song is amazing with its undulating electronics, soft guitar, and drums that gradually erupts into a rocket of sound.
- "Party Barge" is a honky-tonk song from the 2008 sixth album by The Silver Jews. This tune told about a wayward party pontoon and has fascinating nautical sound effects. It is a shame that it was announced in 2009 that their under-appreciated band was breaking up after almost twenty years.
- "Why Do You Let Me Stay Here?" is from the She & Him album, "Volume One." Combining the big vocals of Zooey Deschanel with her accompaniment of piano and ukulele with M. Ward's twangy guitar made the song a hit. It gave them the opportunity to go on their first tour in 2008 and also play at the South by Southwest festival.
