As it does each and every year, Christmas, and the many jingles that have accompanied the season begin to fade. However, the holiday season itself and the remaining nights of music, eating, and dancing are still in full supply, with one of those nights at the very top of our priority list, the night being: New Years Eve.
As the following week approaches and party planning is in full bloom, we can’t forget to create the ultimate New Years Eve playlist.
Not to worry, with the vast technology in our modern age, without fail, “there’s an app for that.” Today, we would like to show you three different music apps that are ready to play all of your favorite tunes when it comes to ringing in the New Year. In addition, and in honor of the 2016 year, I will also give you a quick list of 16 sings, aka, 16 must play songs to remember the sounds of 2015.
Let’s get started with our playlist apps!
It’s older and wiser than some of the new apps for holiday and party tunes, but consistency and simplicity are important too. With the Pandora app, simply download and open the app, and type in: New Years Eve playlist, party playlist, dance party, throwbacks of years past, you get the point.
Pandora is mobile friendly to an older crowd, this music app is easy to use and easy to search for specific songs. With a 4.5 star customer review, this music app will keep your party going well past midnight. With Pandora, users are also able to create a profile and share their favorite songs with friends!
Free from the App Store, the Spotify Music App has been rapidly growing in popularity among the millennial generation. This app is always one step ahead of you with its’ unique feature of anticipating what music may be desired by the user. For example: the Sunday Morning playlist option that appears on the home screen of the app when it is indeed Sunday morning.
It would be wrong not to at least browse the New Years Eve playlist on Spotify, you certainly won’t be disappointed.
In addition, for about ten bucks a month, Spotify offers unique music listening capabilities with their latest premium package. With this package, users are able to listen to music when they are not connected to WiFi, play their songs without the annoyance of pop-up ads, and as usual enjoy high definition and high quality sound, all features that are particularly useful during a party, wouldn’t you agree?
