My 3 Songs: To Ring In The New Year!

Finally, the New Year has arrived and with that, a cause for celebration! Why do we celebrate the end of another year? So signify rebirth, to give thanks for the year that was, and to transition into the new year with joy and excitement. OH and also to dance and maybe kiss somebody and maybe have some champagne! So for all these reasons (and more — can you think of more?) we asked YOU for the top songs you'll be putting on your New Years playlist. Here they are...

Katy Perry - Firework (submitted by Patricia Anne de Leon)

This song is so fitting to play during the countdown when you're toasting the new year with all your friends. It's inspirational without being too slow, it's fun, and it talks about FIREWORKS which are a huge tradition on New Years eve!

LMFAO - Party Rock Anthem (submitted by Brian BigWalk Walker)

Party Rock is in the HOUUUUUUUSE TONIGHT. How could we not pick this song? It blew up the airwaves in 2011 and was a huge hit with people who love to dance (or shuffle). It's a great song to get the party started pre OR post countdown.

Britney Spears - Till The World Ends (submitted by Maxie Ayebare)

Oh Britney, you are a class act. Till The World Ends HAD to be on this list because the upcoming year is 2012 and everyone knows what that means: the end of the world! Just kidding, we don't really believe that but there's no shame in living each day like it's the apocalypse. Or partying like its your last day on earth!
