85 New Year's Eve Songs to Get the Party Started

Good vibes only.


Surviving New Year's Eve without sinking into a deep spiral of disappointment relies on the crew, the booze, and, most importantly, the good vibes. And considering the divisiveness of the past year (that's almost run its course!), we wouldn't blame you for feeling equal parts hopeful and "ugh."

To set the right mood for your midnight soirée, press play on this 85-track party playlist of up-tempo hip-hop, pop, and disco that will, for several hours, divert people's attention from the Big Problems to the little conflicts in life, such as "chaser" vs. "no chaser" and "vintage Drake" vs. "new Drake."
