Song 31 – More Than a Feeling
Slow, but a good slow. Some people may even put their arms around each other and sing. Yes 80s!
Song 32 – I Wanna Be Sedated – The Ramones
Yes, not much I really need to say about the greatness of this song and how it works so well in a power hour
Song 33 – The Next Episode – Dr. Dre and Snoop
You know who’s back up in this muthafucker?!!!!!!! Getting things going for a big push. Again, points for those who can spit all the lyrics.
Song 34 – Jammin’ – Bob Marley
Slowing it down, but a good slow. Maybe not the best place for this song, but it works ok.
Song 35 – Ring of Fire – Johnny Cash
Yes, STDs! This is another good slow one, but a good slow one. Everyone my age seems to love Johnny Cash, lots of singing along.
Song 36 – Since You’ve Been Gone – Kelly Clarkson
I love Kelly Clarkson! I am not ashamed to say that. This song could be 1, 36, or 60. It is all gravy. For some reason whenever my friends and I (usually 4 or 5 guys) would go somewhere in Montana we would always play this song. Yes.
Song 37 – We Be Burnin – Sean Paul
Sean Paul my not be the most moving music or the most complex lyrically (cuz you can’t understand him) but his music is definitely party music
Song 38 – Let’s Stay Together- Al Greene
Contrast again, a slow one people will surely like
Song 39 – I Want You Back – The Jackson 5
Whoo! Young MJ. A great underrated song. This one had people standing up and dancing. And Grab Another Beer please.
Great song, even in one minute form
Song 41 – The Whole World – Outkast
A great hip-hop song. I think it was originally released on a Best of Album, so kinda flew under the radar, but it fits in nicely right here.
Song 42 – Superstitious – Stevie Wonder
Bad Call, don’t really like it here, or anywhere
Song 43 – Stripper’s Song – Wyclef
Another bad call by me. Man. I love Wyclef and really wanted to put something of his on this, but couldn’t find a good one. This is a good upbeat song, but not in the first minute.
Song 44 – Son of a Preacher Man – Dusty Springfield
So we had a few bad choices in row, drink more beer if you have to.
We’re back on the wagon with this one. One for the ladies, but enjoyed by all.
Song 45 – P.I.M.P. – 50 Cent
Oh Snap! We are in the thick of it now. Nearing the end, this is the beginning of our final push forward, our final climax.
This song is pretty banging if you don’t remember. C’mon it begins with a steel drum and some phat bass.
“She feed them foolish fantasies, they pay her cause they wanna
I spit a little G man, and my game got her
A hour later, have that ass up in the Ramada”
Song 46 – Dancing Queen – Abba
Ok, you can raise your eyebrows. I was skeptical, but I trusted my girlfriend with this one. And she was spot on. College girls 3,4,5 beers deep went crazy when they heard this, just as planned.
Song 47 – Can’t Buy Me Love – The Beatles
Need a song that people know and like? Go with the Beatles. I believe this is the most power hour fitting of the three.
Song 48 – Higher and Higher – Jackie Wilson
Another unexpected one, but one that works well, keeps the momentum going higher (and higher)
I believe this song was used in Ghostbusters II to make the Statue of Liberty become alive, due to the joy of the people of NYC. WTF? Yes. This movie was horrible, specially after the original was SO great. Maybe I should watch this one again and give it another chance. I mean with that same cast, it can’t be that bad. Right?
Song 49 – I’ll Be Missing You – Puff Daddy ft. Faith Evans
A heartfelt one here. Good tune.
Song 50 – Brown Eyed Girl – Van Morrison
Another one for the ladies, another one picked out by my girlfriend. And again, the girls loved it.
Song 51 – SuperFreak – Rick James
We are getting close, grab one last beer. The variety continues. I’m Rick James Bitch!, will be inevitably shouted by someone. And as people are feeling the beer now, most will laugh.
Another classic for our generation. I think this one will have everybody signing along.
Song 53 – I Feel Good – James Brown
By this time, everyone will be feeling good.
Song 54 – I Will Survive – Roberta Flack
One last one for the ladies, but the boys will join in. I know I did.
Song 55- Ignition (Remix) – R. Kelly
Yes. I love this song right now, just imagine being 5 beers deep in 55 minutes.
“Now I'm not trynna be rude
But hey pretty girl I'm feelin' you
The way you do the things ya do
Reminds me of my Lexus coupe
That's why I'm all up in ya grill
Trynna get you to a hotel
You must be a football coach
The way you got me playin' da field”
Song 56 – You’ve Lost that Loving Feeling – The Righteous Brothers
Classic for sure, I think everyone knows the lyrics to this one and will sing alone proudly.
Song 57 – Stronger – Kanye West
Maybe this one won’t hold up in the long run, but it works here right now.
Song 58 – Let’s Get It On – Marvin Gaye
One last slow down, this is more all the couples out there. Maybe a bit too late, but I think it fits in very well between songs here. Slows it down for the inevitable crazy finish.
Song 59 – Don’t Stop Believing – Journey
So this may be my biggest mistake of all. I put this song on, but I actually only have it from itunes, so this song was rejected from the list. So actually my great power hour is one song short. Man. That last shot of beer people really needed.
Song 60 – Shout – Otis Day and the Knights (The Isley Brothers)
We made it. It has been a great journey, fitting to end with the greatest party song ever. People will be dancing, jumping, shouting (obviously), flailing around on the floor. It will be glorious.
And after 60 shots of beer (give or take a few for breaks) people want more .
Always leave them wanting more!
