Well, my parents aren’t roaring party throwers, at least they haven’t been since I’ve been alive, so I’m not sure of a song that they would play during a party.
But, I would guess that it would be a song from the 1970’s, since those were their prime younger years (age 15-30 throughout the decade).
Perhaps something like this 1974 hit, from Canadian band Bachman-Turner Overdrive, “Takin’ Care of Business”
Well, I wish I had an actual t-shirt from an artist that has actually been worn by them, but unfortunately that is not the case. The closest I come to that is t-shirts from concert tours.
At one time, I had a t-shirt from this band. They have yet to make an appearance on this challenge so now is the time.
Here is 2004’s Mr. Brightside from The Killers.
I know there are songs out there where everybody joins in, according to the music and lyrics, such as “Señorita” by Justin Timberlake. But, for the life of me I can’t remember any others, and therefore I’m having trouble finding a favourite!
However, one of my favourite anthem songs that I know always gets a crowd to sing/shout along to, is this gem here from 1987 – it’s a fantastic rock song and has one of the best and most memorable choruses in rock music history in my opinion.
Here is “Livin’ On A Prayer” by Bon Jovi
Well, this song seems fitting….
Creep – Radiohead
Well, this band has been a favourite of mine for about 10 years now. I even saw them perform in concert when I was 16/17 years old, and they were awesome! There album, From Under The Cork Tree, was definitely an album I would play on repeat, and especially helped me get through those moments of teen angst!
Fall Out Boy’s Pete Went and Patrick Stump were probably the a couple of the first non-boy band, yet still male, musicians that I really learned the name of! I even had Fall Out Boy posters on my bedroom wall, right next to The Killers and the All-American Rejects, who were my other favourite bands of that time.
So, what song should I pick? Well, let’s go with the first Fall Out Boy song I heard, because it’s the song that started it all…
Here is “Sugar, We’re Goin’ Down”
Um, do I ever air guitar? Not really…
So, because I really like this song AND it’s mentioned on Buzzfeed’s list “44 Songs You Have to Air Guitar To Before You Die”, I choose Boston’s More Than A Feeling.
It actually is a pretty great guitar song. So, let’s get those fingers ready and air guitar away!!
Be careful…you just might not be able to stop listening and playing along!
Do You Wanna Touch Me – Joan Jett & The Blackhearts
