We have all heard the saying “all great things must come to end” and choosing the perfect song to end your evening is not always an easy task. Whether you’re hosting a house party, social, wedding, or an event of any kind, you will eventually have to bring the party to a close and end the evening on a particular note. Last dance songs have the potential to be the most memorable part of any event. Choosing the right music to end an amazing party can become rather stressful if you don’t think about it ahead of time.
Good last songs of the night are the ones that end your party on a high note, but also signal to your guests that the night is coming to a close. By the end of the evening, most people should still be living it up on the dance floor, providing the perfect opportunity for one last floor-filling hit. Announcing that the last song of the night is coming up gives everyone one more chance to show off their awesome moves and indicates to everyone that the event is almost over.
When choosing the last song, you want to pick something very mainstream that will have everyone singing the lyrics, regardless of their taste in music. If you want a guaranteed crowd-pleaser, it is good to go with something from the 80s, 90s, or 2000s, that will have everyone from young kids to their grandparents bopping their heads. Choosing a slightly slower-paced song can also be an effective way of closing the night, while still creating a memorable time.
Classic hits like Don’t Stop Believin’, Sweet Caroline, and Time After Time are usually safe choices for most events. If you are looking for something more modern, songs like We Are Young, and We Can’t Stop are great choices! If you are choosing a last dance song for a Wedding, you may be looking for a more romantic option. In this case, mellow love songs such as My Girl, Springsteen, All You Need is Love, and Yellow may be right up your alley! Of course, if you aren’t sure exactly what kind of vibe your guests will enjoy, you can always play Closing Time by Semisonic, which will obviously signal the end of the night and end the party with a bang!
To help take the confusion out of your last song planning, All Around Sound has created a Last Songs of the Night playlist filled with 20 excellent choices for your last number! This mix of soft pop, sing-along country, and iconic nostalgic hits is sure to end your night on a good note! You can access the full playlist on our Spotify and YouTube accounts.
When your night comes to an end, we hope that no matter which song you choose, that you enjoy every last minute of it!
From all of us at All Around Sound,
“you don’t have to go home, but you can’t stay here”.
