The most requested party songs of 2022!

It's time for the top 100, most iconic party songs played during 2022. Each one is guaranteed to get everyone dancing at your party! These are the greatest party anthems!

My 2022 chart of the year!

When throwing a great party, the music played is key to a party’s success.  There are certain songs that have stood the test of time and always manage to get people on their feet and dancing.

The DJ software I use keeps a count of how many times a song has been played however this year I’m doing something different.  Instead of sorting all the songs I played based on the number of times I played them, I kept a separate list of every song chosen in advance by customers and their guests as well as songs requested on the night and then sorted those by the play count.  This should now give you a better idea of what others have been requesting!

No matter what type of party you are throwing, these songs are sure to get everyone in the mood to celebrate!

The party scene has changed a lot over the years, with new hits and trends constantly emerging.  For 2022, dance music and remixes of older tracks seem to be really popular with a lot of the classics I’ve listed above getting a new lease of life.  Social media, specifically TikTok, now plays a massive part in the success of songs these days.  Older, once-forgotten tracks are now being re-discovered by a younger audience and I don’t see that trend stopping any time soon!

The counters have been reset, let’s see what 2023 brings!
