Magic Kingdom - Christmas Dance

Chances are you will hear All I Want For Christmas is You more than a million times during this festive season and there’s nothing wrong with Mariah Carey. (Indeed I have some happy memories from when it came out in 1994.)

But with Christmas party season officially kicking off on Thursday (December 2), because that’s when my first event is taking place, there is a need to dazzle your friends with your choices of great party tunes without those being the ones you will hear in the shops.

Magic Kingdom - Christmas Dance
If it’s your first time at dance club you have to dance (“Magic Kingdom – Christmas Dance” by Jeff Krause Photography is licensed under CC BY-NC-ND 2.0)

You can see the passion in their eyes – but it doesn’t look like they eat much Christmas pudding (“Christmas Dance Ball” by BGDancer is licensed under CC BY-NC-SA 2.0)

Is it me or does the B in the background remind you of the letters they have at crime scenes to mark out points of significant interest, like blood spatters? (“2013-12-08 Christmas Dance 05” by Byron’s Photography is licensed under CC BY 2.0)

Luckily Fiskal Policy is on hand with a playlist featuring great tunes to kick your night off with – then some Christmassy stuff to take it down a notch and encourage your guests to make like a tree.

(You’ll have to fill in the gaps between the two sections yourself – depending on how long you want your party to last.)

There are some great tracks for you to enjoy including DJ Lilly Palmer (these days I spend most of my life listening to Lilly’s sets) and an oldie but goodie from Lauren Laverne (in the days before she made 15-year-old me sad and 42-year-old me sad).

Enjoy and party on!
