“Let’s Party!” 7 Happy Songs to Dance to at your Debut


Currently at your wits end planning your debut? Between finding the most beautiful dress and choosing the right debut package, we’re guessing you probably don’t have a lot of time to put together your official debut playlist. Don’t fret because the team at “Debut” would be more than happy to give you some awesome suggestions. From top billboard favourites to never-before-heard artists, we’ve come up with a list of happy songs that are guaranteed to keep your guests on their feet on your most special birthday.

“Wings” by Little Mix

Released in 2012, this upbeat song has big beats and double-time handclaps that will get you in a dancing mood. But it’s not just the eclectic mix of musical elements that will get you. This song is packed with enough girl power to intimidate the male guests at your party. Oh, and there’s also a marching band bit at the end that makes this song even more awesome than it already it.

Minion Dance

“Happy” by Pharrell Williams

Pharrell Williams has done it again with this ultimate summer anthem. First heard on the “Despicable Me 2” soundtrack, “Happy” magically captures the whole essence of being, well, happy. It’s such an easy listening song that leaves you with that warm fuzzy feeling on the inside. If you love those cute yellow minions from the movie, click on the link above for a quick dose of cuteness. Do it. No point in resisting.

“Get Lucky” by Daft Punk

This Daft Punk masterpiece definitely got serious airtime last year. From radio countdowns to TV shows, this song had the whole world bobbing their heads to the funky bass line. Kids love it, teenagers love it, and heck, even our grandparents love it! A must have on your debut after party playlist.

Happy Feet

“Burning Gold” by Christi Perri

If you’re looking for Sara Bareilles’ “Brave” in this mix, or even Katy Perry’s “Roar”, we have a treat in store for you. Prepare to get addicted to a much superior melody and an emotional chorus that will inspire you to finally take that step to personal transformation. This is also the perfect song to play whenever you’re in need of a serious pick-me-up.  Having trouble keeping your positive energy flowing? Play this song and just hit repeat.

“Somebody Loves You” by Betty Who

This synth-heavy song has such a strong ‘80s vibe that it makes it hard to believe that it was just released early last year. It talks about the joy of having somebody think of you and love you in a cheesy kind of way. If you’re the vintage type who loves the old school sound, then Betty Who is an act that you definitely need to watch out for.

Singin' in the Rain

 “I Will Never Let You Down” by Rita Ora

Behind the catchy beat and late ‘80s Whitney Houston sound, this song is actually a love song in disguise. Produced by the great Calvin Harris, this up and coming dance hit showcases strong vocals from a sweeter and more subtle Rita Ora.

“She Looks so Perfect” by 5 Seconds of Summer

We’re capping off this list with a song that has all the potential to be this year’s pop-rock anthem. Released just a couple of months ago, we like to imagine that this song is what you get when you mix Blink-182 with Busted. Interested to know how that sounds like? Click above!
