Because Friday makes me feel like dancing!
It’s Friday afternoon and 5 o’clock is so close you can almost taste the rosé. To make the tedious knock-off countdown that little bit better we’ve compiled a playlist of the tunes that are guaranteed to get you in the mood for the Friday afternoon boogie. Here are some of our favourites:
Ignition | R. Kelly
This is the ultimate tune to get the good vibes poppin’ hot and fresh out the office kitchen on a Friday arvo.
You Make Me Feel Like Dancing | Leo Sayer
Oh Leo, you make us feel like dancing every time we hear this ’70s tune! Leo Sayer is actually playing a show in Brisbane next month and we’ve already got our tickets. Can’t wait to boogie under the stars at the Gabba. Grab your discounted tickets here with our style code “SILVERLEO20”
Wildfire | SBTRKT (ft. Little Dragon)
Simon Says | Pharoahe Monch
This track really has stood the test of time since 1999, being included on various soundtracks and still sampled on songs today.
You Can Do It | Ice Cube
Glowed Up | Kaytranada (ft. Anderson .Paak)
This recent track is just a taste of the genius behind Kaytranada. If you haven’t heard it yet, definitely worth checking out, especially on a Friday arvo.
Ukiyo | Hermitude
What’s Luv | Fat Joe (ft. Ashanti)
This early noughties track is the perfect bouncy track
Can’t Get Enough of Myself | Santigold
Still Sound | Toro Y Moi
This song is definitely up there as one of my favourite boogie tunes. I just love how bouncy and fun it is. After seeing Toro Y Moi live last year, I was impressed that the show wasn’t just a DJ with backing vocals – instead, it was a seven-piece band who ended up being my favourite act of a three-day festival. This track has a pretty cool ’70s garage vibe film clip, too!
Dancing in the Moonlight | Toploader
All Day and All of the Night | The Kinks
This song may be older than my parents but it is guaranteed to have you moving in your chair. My only advice is to play this one as the clock strikes 5pm as it is proven to require a G&T after listening.
Work (remix) | ASAP Freg
Bright Lights, Big City | The Animals
If you don’t know The Animals, it’s time to get on Spotify and add their Best Of album to your playlist. It was hard to choose just one song, but The Animals provide the perfect soundtrack for laidback Friday knock-off drinks.
Ride on Time | Black Box
Wild for the Night | A$AP Rocky
As the name suggests, this song will have you ready for a wild night. Watch out for the bad words!
Just Fine | Mary H Blige
Gold Snafu – Sticky Fingers
These Sydney lads love to throw a party and their tunes are bound to get you in the mood for one. If you want to get straight to the song, start the clip three minutes in.
Major Lazer | Get Free (ft. Amber of Dirty Projectors)
Black Dog | Led Zeppelin
I don’t think a Friday afternoon list would be complete without this song.
Down Like This | Motez (ft. Tkay Maidza)
Pony | Ginuwine
I don’t think anyone could get sick of this song. Still a d-floor favourite everywhere.
Retro | Childish Gambino
Ride Wit Me | Nelly
Nelly in his Band-Aid days was definitely the best Nelly.
Go Your Own Way | Fleetwood Mac
Work It | Missy Elliot
After you’ve been workin’ it all week in the office, it’s time to work it to Missy Elliot!
Proud Mary | Creedence Clearwater Revival
Gin & Juice | Snoop Dogg
Just what we feel like on a Friday arvo.
Play | Jennifer Lopez
King Kunta | Kendrick Lamar
This has long been a regular on many playlist, and it snagged the runner-up spot in the 2016 Triple J Hottest 100.
I’m Coming Out | Diana Ross
Work | Drake (ft. Rihanna)
It’s time to go home from work, work, work, work, work!
Heart of Glass | Blondie
Father Stretch My Hands Part 1 | Kanye West
Whether you’re a Yeezy fan or not, this album packs some serious boogie tunes.
For Free | DJ Khaled
American Boy | Kanye & Estelle
This is my personal favourite song of all time. Even on the worst days, there is just something about this tune that puts a smile on my dial.
Guns and Ships | Hamilton
The Moment | Tame Impala
Tame Impala provides the ultimate chill tunes but this track’s film clip will get you excited for weekends in summer.
