Mixtape: Nineties vs. Now – Party Anthems

by The Concordian November 8, 2011
In the past decade, there has been one thing that has remained constant in my life: there’s nothing I enjoy more than a solid party track. Whether I was a bumbling teenager, busy funnelling water back into the bottles of my friends’ parents’ liquor cabinet to replace the vodka and rum we drank while they were on vacation, a completely lush bar star in my undergraduate years at my STFXU’s bar “The Golden X Inn,” or raving at an underground after-hours club in the almost-continuously-winter-locked city of Edmonton, I was quite literally unable to deny the forces of party anthems from taking over my seemingly possessed body. These are the songs that inspire girls to throw their hands up in the air, scream and dance with so much gusto you’d swear they were auditioning for So You Think You Can Dance. So put on these tracks, grab your favourite alcoholic beverage, and put your inhibitions to the side―there’s no room for them where this mix is about to take you!
