Well you’ve made it through your first term of University – CONGRATS — but now it’s time to knuckle down. There are only four months between now and exams, and there’s much partying to be done. Forget coursework, forget revision, some things are more important than that, and obviously partying’s one of them. How else do you expect to become an established BNOC? Of course I’m kidding, but really, now is the time to get it out of your system before you become bogged down by revision. So here are some suggestions to get you started. Enjoy.
This needs no introduction, but what it does need is a get pumped playlist. Throw in a few of these tracks, and in the immortal words of my blockmate…”LETS GET GAZEEBOOED”.
Swimming Pools (Drank) – Kendrick Lamar
My Head Is A Jungle (MK Remix) – Wankelmut and Emma Louise
3005 – Childish Gambino
Punching In A Dream – The Naked And Famous
2. Oh, hey…you
Everyone’s just arrived and no one’s dancing. Be cool, take a deep breath. Your party is not, repeat not a dud. This stage is unavoidable, all you can do is ride it out with a few good ‘background’ tunes. Good luck.
Kids Aren’t Safe In The Metro (TJ H 87 Remix) – Satellite Stories
Control – Matrix and Futurebound
Prayer In C Minor (Robin Schulz Remix) – Lilly Wood and the Prick
Jubel – Klingande
3. The Kick-Off
You’ve put on everyone’s favourite song and are now officially considered a Lord by your peers. Enjoy the perks of being a BNOC. You’ve earned it.
F**kin Problems – ASAP Rocky, Drake, 2 Chainz, Kendrick Lamar
Dr. Who – Tujamo, Plastik Funk ft. Sneakbo
Bump & Grind 2014 – Waze and Odyssey VS R. Kelly
Lassitude – DJ Fresh & Sigma
4. Dancing Queen (According to you anyway)
Beginning to feel the effects yet? If you’re not owning the dance floor by now, THERE IS SOMETHING FUNDAMENTALLY WRONG WITH YOU.
Turn Down For What – DJ Snake, Lil Jon (I know but let’s be honest, you’re never gonna not dance to this)
A-Punk – Vampire Weekend
My Love ft. Jess Glynne (Sigma Remix) – Route 94
Your opportunity to dance to anthems from your childhood and evade judgment. Indulge!
Hey Ya – Outkast
Hot in herre – Nelly
Ignition – R. Kelly
All Star – Smash Mouth
6. The Comedown
Its 4 am and you’re still here. Well done, I’m impressed. But the party’s technically over, so you can finally pass out at your closest convenience (sofa? corridor?). Time to get philosophical. If you were reincarnated as a member of the Beatles, would you go Lennon?
Another Girl – Jacques Greene
1901 – Phoenix
Robbers – The 1975
Electric Feel – MGMT
Melanie McKay & Amber Turner-Flanders
