2010s Pop-Cocktails


Cocktail Hour was meant to be fun, so why not include fun pop songs that will get the party started on the right foot? Performing these songs in a jazzy & classy way, your grandparents will think they're listening to Frank Sinatra, all the while the band is actually playing Rihanna song (that your friends are singing along to!) The 2010s have given us so many amazing pop songs. With artists like Bruno Mars, Daft Punk, Macklemore and Justin Bieber cranking the shiniest danciest music this world has ever known, these songs are begging to help spice up your cocktail hour and give it some fun youthful energy. In no way do we encourage a singer to grab the mic and viciously start spitting all of the lyrics to a Drake song in your great-uncle's face. But rather performing these songs in a cool & jazzy way will surprise and delight your guests at a time your party was otherwise in danger of being dull. We have created a few rules for success: * Never play more than a couple of these songs at a time (treat them like sugar in your coffee) * The song should be happy/upbeat in nature (Kanye's Bound is still a questionable choice) * Rap parts of songs should mainly be sung and swung (Jay-Z and ODB included) * All profanity must be replaced by something wedding-friendly (ideally something funny) Let us waste no more time, we want to show you what 2010s Pop-Cocktails are all about! We have recorded three of our favourite songs, listing our Top 5 Pop-Cocktails songs from each year through this shiny decade. Enjoy! 2010 TEENAGE DREAM - Katy Perry
