Best Songs For a 1 Minute Dance Party

IMG_2739

When studying or working hard on something, the benefits of a good break can be exponential. Taking a page out of 30 Rock’s book, here are our top 5 songs at the moment for enjoying an energetic study break with a one minute dance party!

5. ‘Memories That You Call’ – ODESZA (featuring Monsoonsiren)

If you’re only going to dance to this one for a minute, we suggest you skip to the drop at 1:05. But for those with more time on their hands, definitely listen the whole way through, because this one is epiphany-worthy.

4. ‘Heirloom’ – Basenji

‘Heirloom’ seems to be all over the internet at the moment with all the trendy music bloggers (how convenient that you should find it here…), and we’re pretty sure we love it. Prepare your most impressive clubbing moves, because this one’s a banger.

3. ‘Is This How You Feel?’ – The Preatures

Ok so it isn’t exactly a club banger, but you can totally imagine twisting with your partner to it at your high school prom. So grab someone to dance with and get those creative juices flowing!

2. ‘Act Yr Age’ – Bluejuice

Bluejuice aren’t going to be making music for too much longer together so it’s about time you jumped around and got silly to their upbeat tunes.

1. ‘I Got U’ – Duke Dumont, featuring Jax Jones

Nothing says ‘dance party’ like steel drums, and there are a lot of them in this track. It’s an oldie from earlier this year, but always a goodie.

So study/work hard people! Hope these tunes make stress a little more bearable…

Farewell Bluejuice, No Vitriol Here

After 13 years of producing loud, ecstatic indie rock, Sydney group Bluejuice announced that they will be breaking up at the end of this year.

I have fond memories of shouting along to their lyrics and jumping around to their songs in my room as a teenager, blasting their tunes in the car on Triple J and seeing them absolutely kill it at ANU O-Week this year.

So we at Vinyl Garden wish Bluejuice all the best and encourage all readers and fellow fans to head along to their Retrospectable Tour, which will accompany a retrospective album!

Here’s to their stellar contribution to the Australian music scene, and to reminding everyone to Act Yr Age!
