Wednesday Night Dance Party Playlist

When I was in college, there was a standing appointment for a Wednesday Night Dance Party in the student lounge next to my bedroom. Occasionally it would be cancelled during times of high stress and intense studying (i.e mid-terms and finals), but you could generally count on it happening every week. And it was exactly what everyone needed. It was a chance to cut loose and be ridiculous

While I can’t remember any of the exact playlists that the amazing Ross and Nasi came up with, I wanted to create something in the same vein. I asked my roommate to be my lovely assistant in this task, as I do not listen to the radio and have missed out on a lot of current music. Here are my picks for an awesome Wednesday Night Dance Party:
