So, yeah, this is Brooklyn. You might imagine that the R+B-ish and danceable songs did a lot better than the rock-y songs. I’m going to include the rock-y songs in case that fits the preference of your teens and, at the very list, maybe just seeing some of these song titles will give you some ideas about what you’d like to include on your list. I burned a CD of these songs, but you could just as easily make a Spotify list or hook your i-Pod up to some speakers (I’m too scared that my stuff will get stolen or the Wi-Fi will fart out).
Just a heads up, some of these songs have curses in them. If this is a problem at your teen parties, give the songs a good listen before you include them in your playlist, OK girl?
Here it is:
You have no choice. You have to include this. This is not an option. It’s a good song to put first while you’re waiting for people to show up. Bonus points if you can use the Adam Sandler version instead:
This song is AWFUL. It’s so bad. But it’s dance-y and mockable:
I have been preparing for my Anti-Valentine’s Day Party for Teens for a while. I made rude conversation heart decorations. I put together a anti-love songs mix (which I’ll post in a future entry in case you want to steal it). I prepared a black duct tape rose craft (I got black duct tape from the craft store and used this tutorial):
I included some easier crafts like writing rude things on heart doilies and romance novel cover parodies:
And we had lots of snacks that would give you nasty breath:
The teens had nearly no interest in doing the crafts (some of them wrote on the doilies, the rest made animal shapes out of pipe cleaners). They mostly danced to the mix I made, tried to make out with each other while I wasn’t looking (not very anti-Valentine’s U GUISE), and ate all the food. Seriously. I forgot how much teens eat. So, while things didn’t go quite how I planned, I had a really good time.
I know for next time, less crafts. More chips. You can see more pictures on their fashion Tumblr (follow them?).
