This year has been a great one for music so it only makes sense that a party celebrating the year would need an awesome New Year’s Eve playlist to help you ring in the new year! This playlist for New Years Eve is full of everything from the top pop hits like Taylor Swift to the best of the country world from Sam Hunt.
I always say that to plan a party you need to think about all five senses – taste, touch, seeing, hearing, and smelling. Having the perfect New Year’s Eve playlist can really make a big difference in your New Year’s Eve party because the right songs can put people in a good mood while other songs will kind of just be more background music.
I put together this New Year’s Eve playlist based on top songs of the year from all different categories – pop, country, rock, and more! They’re songs that are appropriate for everyone (nothing explicit), have a good beat, and ones that most people probably will like! This was a great year for music, so enjoy!
