Top 10 Greatest Specialty Party
and Celebration Event Songs

Criteria: These songs are ranked based on popularity, importance and relevance to their respective genres. Although a few of the songs may not actually mean what the audience at large interprets it as (for example, "The Future's So Bright, I Gotta Wear Shades" by Timbuk 3 addresses nuclear concerns), they are nonetheless included.

These lists are fun-themed and meant as a starting point for up-and-coming DJs and event organizers.
