Building a Sweet Sixteen Party Playlist

Close your eyes and imagine a sweet sixteen party without any hot Sweet 16 Songs. The kids are mingling, discussing the latest gossip. They have cups in their hands with punch inside, they are munching on pretzels or chips, and they are surrounded by decorations. Everyone is too afraid to talk too loudly because of the lack of background noise, so all you can hear is murmuring and paranoid whispering.

With some music playing at the party, you will see dancing among the conversations and that will keep the energy flowing.

So what would be some good Sweet 16 Songs songs for a party?

Any songs about birthdays, sweet 16, and anything that encourages people to dance should be on the playlist. Of course, you need to ask your teen what tunes she wants on her playlist. You definitely don’t want to put anything on the list that she or her friends won’t like. Sometimes it is good to create a mix of Sweet 16 songs hits, pop songs, and some electro pop. However, your teen may want something completely different and that is quite alright. The day is all about their style, so let them be who they are.

As for how you can play the music, that is entirely up to you and your teen. The above Sweet 16 songs playlist may be completely irrelevant if you decide to hire a band. The band may be able to play some requests or all requests. It simply comes down to the type of band that you hire. The high school garage band may play certain covers or they may play originals. If your daughter is a fan of that band, then she should have that band.

If your daughter is a fan of a specific DJ, then she should have that DJ. If she wants a DJ and doesn’t have a clue who would be best for her party, it is time for you to interview DJs together. If any Sweet 16 songs are important to you, make sure they can play those songs so your teen isn’t missing out on anything that she wants on her special day.
