The Ultimate Britney Spears NYE Playlist

Scrambling to come up with a theme for your New Year’s Eve get-together? Have I got an idea for you: Britney Spears Song NYE. Intrigued? If so, here's what you need: a playlist of Britney Spears tunes... and that's it. Feel free to go wild with the decorations and the costumes and the crudités, but no pressure. Follow your heart, as long as your heart leads you to a very Godney New Year’s Eve playlist.

“How is a playlist a 'theme?'” the skeptic asks as it furrows its brow. “And what if my party guests aren’t Britney fans? What if my party guests want to listen to something other than a Britney-only playlist?"

To that I say: Um, get new party guests? …OK, OK. That response was way extreme. You're right. I’m sorry. Let me try again: Um, fire up the playlist regardless and tell your party guests to suck it up and stop being haters? Hey, what’s the worst that could happen?

“Well, for one thing, my guests could get fed up with my tyrannical 'tude and bounce before midnight,” the skeptic replies as it takes a swig of chamomile tea. "That'd be a real bummer."

OK, fine. Whatever. I’m not going to tell you how to live your life. But if you are down to play a Godney-only NYE soundtrack on the final night of the calendar year, this is the way to go:

“Till The World Ends”

This is one of my favorite Britney songs, one of my favorite pop songs, and one of my favorite New Year's Eve songs. How and why is a ditty about boogieing until Armageddon one of my most beloved NYE tunes? Because when I hear Britney's dance-until-the-apocalypse jam, I think about the Y2K scare. Was there ever a NYE that committed to NYE more than Y2K? No. No there was not.

“Kill The Lights”

Who wants to go to an overly illuminated NYE party? LAAAAAAME.

“Till The World Ends”

No, this isn’t an error. Yes, I meant to include this song a second time. I know we listened to it only a few minutes ago, but I had to hear it again. It’s just that perfect a song. I hope that’s cool by you.

“I’ve Just Begun (Havin’ My Fun)”

Oh, you think the party’s energy is wild at 10 p.m.? Get ready for the madness that’ll strike after the ball drops.

“Till The World Ends”

Hey, if the planet were to explode the very moment Dick Clark yelled “HAPPY NEW YEAR,” it’d be out of our control. There's nothing we could do. Our canned food stockpile would be for naught. Might as well spend the final hours cutting this here rug.

“Email My Heart”

NYE is the night we celebrate the future, and what’s more futuristic than a song about electronic mail?

“Till The World Ends”


“Break The Ice”

You're in the middle of regaling one of your party guests with the thrilling tale about the one time you accidentally hemmed your pant leg shut, when you see something about to go down across the room: another guest is about to shove a monstrosity of an ice cube clump into one of your crystal whisky glasses. But before the cube clump guest can shatter the glass or create a melty ice cube mess, you pull the plug on the pant hem debacle convo and fetch a miniature ice pick. You hand it to the cube clump guest. Crisis averted.

“Till The World Ends”



You're looking forward to the New Year, you're looking forward to giving your resolutions a genuine shot, you're looking forward to hearing "Till The World Ends" again, and so on.

NYE is a REALLY big night for counting, some counting happens in this song, etcetera. It's perfect.

It's no "Kiss Me At Midnight," but it'll do just fine.

Bump this song 'til the break of dawn, the NYE party don't stop 'til the early mornin'.
