It's the biggest party night of the year - New Year's Eve! But picking the perfect song to play at the stroke of midnight isn't an easy task... so we've made it a little easier with our ultimate New Year's Eve 2019 playlist!

  1. Toploader - Dancing in the Moonlight

    Toploader's 'Dancing in the Moonlight' is a party classic. Did you know, the 2000 track is actually a cover - originally released by rock band King Harvest back in 1972?

  2. Calvin Harris & Dua Lipa - One Kiss

    What better way to round off 2018 with one of the biggest songs of the year? Give Calvin Harris and Dua Lipa's collaboration a proper send-off before heading into 2019.

  3. David Bowie - Let's Dance

    There's plenty of party songs to pick from when it comes to the late, great David Bowie. We reckon 'Let's Dance' is an excellent choice as it's bound to get people moving.

  4. Mark Ronson - Uptown Funk feat. Bruno Mars

    If you're partying with family this year, 'Uptown Funk' is one even your Gran will like. Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars' banger has now racked up over 3 billion YouTube views.

  5. Loud Luxury - Body feat. Brando

    Loud Luxury's 'Body' has been one of 2018's biggest dance anthems and will sound epic as the soundtrack to the fireworks at midnight on New Year's Eve.

  6. Europe - The Final Countdown

    Minutes before the clock strikes twelve and we welcome in a New Year, Europe's 'The Final Countdown' is the perfect song to stick on (for quite obvious reasons).

  7. Galantis - Runaway (U & I)

    Another classic dance anthem you've got to put on your New Year's Eve playlist is 'Runaway (U & I)' - the incredible 2014 debut single from Swedish duo Galantis.

  8. Darude - Sandstorm

    For New Year's Eve 2016 in Helsinki, Finnish DJ Darude played this to a huge crowd and timed it perfectly so that the drop was just as the clock struck midnight. Incredible!

  9. Journey - Don't Stop Believin'

    Journey - Don't Stop Believin' (Live in Houston)

    Journey's 1981 hit 'Don't Stop Believin'' didn't exactly set the world alight the first time around, only becoming a hit in the 00s. It's now a classic everyone knows the words to.

  10. Major Lazer - Light It Up feat. Nyla & Fuse ODG

    Major Lazer – Light it Up (feat. Nyla & Fuse ODG) (Music Video Remix) by Method Studios

    You could go for Katy Perry's 'Fireworks' at midnight but we think Major Lazer's 'Light It Up' really brings the party (and lyrically it's just about the same, right?)
