What do Madonna, the Bee Gees, Chaka Khan, Madonna, Michael Jackson, Bananarama, Chaka Khan, Chesney Hawkes, Kylie Minogue and Madonna have in common? They all feature in the top ten classic party tunes according to a recent poll, that’s what.
Madonna is at number one with upbeat 1983 synth-fest Holiday, followed in second place by… Madonna with Hung Up and, in third, Into the Groove by – yep, that’s right – Madonna.
Having claimed the top three spots, the Material Girl makes way for the Bee Gees with Stayin’ Alive, Chaka Khan – popping up twice with Ain’t Nobody and I’m Every Woman – and Michael Jackson with Billie Jean.
Bananarama’s cover of Venus, and Kylie Minogue’s Can’t Get You Out of My Head also make the list – and what party would be complete without the One and Only Chesney Hawkes.
Ten more tracks – featuring artists ranging from Britney Spears to Shania Twain, Queen to Abba – feature in the top twenty, as decided by Magic 105.4’s online survey to find the world’s greatest party classics.
