What’s New on iTunes: Party Playlist 2011 06-29

party playlist

Another week has passed and once again it’s time for another party playlist review of what’s new in the top 10 songs on iTunes.

Country music is a great genre, so I’m always glad when a country song enters the top 10 on iTunes. Even though this song is a bit low on the BPM side, it’s still nice to have a change in pace from the pop and hip-hop that’s usually in the top 10 (nothing wrong with pop or hip-hop, I just like some diversity every now and then…)

Obviously, this list won’t last you for an entire party, but it will give you a good start and will give you some ideas where to go next.

I would love to hear your feedback on this, so please comment, or contact me on facebook or twitter.

It’s Finally Here! The Party Playlist iPhone App!

I’ve been working on this for a few months now and I can finally say that it’s ready to go! Party Playlist has gone mobile and we now have an iPhone app in the apple app store.

You can get it here

This app offers a lot of different options:

First, It takes the music from this website into the mobile world and allows you to cut out the PC as the middleman. Now you can access the party playlists from this site directly on your phone and download any music from them to your music library while on the go.

Second, If you’ve ever wanted to plan a party, and needed some tips to help you get started – this app is for you because it has a whole section on party planning tips and ideas.

But wait, there’s more…

Third, no party is complete without some tasty beverages (ok, maybe if it’s a kids’ party you can pass on the alcohol, but most adult parties are just more fun with some good drinks). The new party playlist app also includes drink recipes to teach you how to make these yummy beverages and not only that, they also include videos showing you how to make them step by step!

Get the party playlist app here

Right now, the app is priced for the launch, but it won’t stay like this forever, so get it now…

What’s New on iTunes: Party Playlist 2011 06-22

party playlist

It’s wednesday again and it’s time for another review of what’s new on iTunes for your party playlist.

We have a few new songs this week on the top 10 starting with Katy Perry’s really stupid song, Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.) [Explicit], which I’m sure I’ll be humming all the time at some point after it plays 100,000 times on the radio and sticks to my brain. We also have Tonight Tonight, which is catchy but not really special and then we have Lighters [Explicit]. I kinda like this one because it has a lot of elements that remind me of some Eminem songs, but it also gets annoying at times, so we’ll see.

Obviously, this list won’t last you for an entire party, but it will give you a good start and will give you some ideas where to go next.

I would love to hear your feedback on this, so please comment, or contact me on facebook or twitter.

OMG! It’s a Glee Party Playlist!!

party playlist

Here’s a party playlist surprise!

The TV show Glee has taken the music world by storm, and if you haven’t heard of it, it means you either live under a rock or have just now woken up from a coma – and if that’s the case, thanks for making this site the first one you visit :).

Glee is in a category of its own – already breaking the Beatles’ record for the most hits on the top of the charts (even though these are only cover versions), and finding a way to take over the iTunes top 10 list pretty much every week the day after the show.

I hate to admit it (since I’m not a 12 year old girl), but I do enjoy the show. The story is usually very loose, barely makes sense at times, but sometimes that’s just what you need from a TV show, and it does work to tie the songs together. It doesn’t hurt that their music is very up-beat and well performed either.

That’s why I decided to create a party playlist entirely out of Glee songs. This party playlist is 45 minutes long, so obviously, it won’t last you for an entire party, but it will give you a good start and will give you some ideas where to go next.

I would love to hear your feedback on this, so please comment, or contact me on facebook or twitter.

And now, Here’s the list:

How to Find Free and Legal Music downloads for Your Party Playlist

What if I told you that you can get hundreds of free songs (in mp3 format) for free and completely legal? oh, and there isn’t any one of those pesky monthly fees attached to it either… And I’m not just talking about streaming from an online player on the web, I’m talking about actually downloading these songs as your “property” for free.

The songs I’m talking about are not some backwoods bands that no one’s ever heard of either, I’m talking famous artists like John Legend, Beyoncé, Death Cab For Cutie, Alice Cooper and many others (there are also less familiar artists and bands there of course…)

Last time I checked, I counted over 1500 free songs available for immediate download.

How to find these free songs:

Amazon.com:
Amazon is probably the best source for free music. They have been doing a great job promoting their music download service and is actually subsidizing a lot of music to try and beat iTunes.
To get free music from amazon go to http://amzn.to/d03NlI and just go up and down the list and get as many songs as you want.

Mp3.com
Mp3.com has a big collection of artists, although most of them are non-mainstream. They share a number of free songs at http://www.mp3.com/free-music/free-mp3s

You won’t find songs from artists like Beyoncé there, but there are plenty of other songs that are definitely worth listening to. Oh, did I mention they are free? :)

Last.fm
Last.fm is another great place to get more free music.
http://www.last.fm/music/+free-music-downloads

Twitter:
You can also follow @party_playlist on Twitter and get many updates about free songs that would be great for a party playlist

What’s New on iTunes: Party Playlist 2011 06-02

party playlist

This week’s iTunes top 10 is still a good source for music for your party playlist.

I was surprised to see that Scotty’s song from American Idol is still on the top 10 list, but it is. I think it’s not his best, but it looks like he’s going to have a long and successful career (if he doesn’t screw up), so good for him!

This week’s list is pretty similar to last weeks, so it looks like there are no real new hits on the radio to move things around yet.

Obviously, this list won’t last you for an entire party, but it will give you a good start and will give you some ideas where to go next.

I would love to hear your feedback on this, so please comment, or contact me on facebook or twitter.
