PLAYLIST GUIDES

What Music Would You Put on a “black Friday” Playlist?

Black Friday is a holiday that is celebrated by millions of people each year.

It’s also a day for music lovers to pick out their favorite songs to listen to while they’re shopping at stores.

1. “Shake It Off” by Taylor Swift

You don’t have to be a Taylor Swift fan to enjoy her song “Shake It Off”.

This upbeat tune is perfect for any shopping trip, as it will put you in a good mood.

The lyrics are about shaking off criticism and moving on with your life—a message that’s particularly relevant when shopping on Black Friday (and at other times throughout the year).

2. “Baby, It’s Cold Outside”

This song is a classic Christmas tune, but it’s also a song about consent and sexual coercion.

The man in the song tries to convince his female companion (who is not named) to stay at his house by saying things like:

“What’s in this drink?” and “Baby, it’s cold outside.” He asks her to “stay” with him for just one night, implying that if she leaves, she’ll regret it later.

And he tells her that if she does leave then he will have no choice but to cry himself to sleep alone—because obviously, it would be all her fault for leaving him alone on a cold winter night!

Furthermore, he reminds her that someone might see them together because they live in such close proximity.

He also says that maybe they should listen to what their conscience tells them instead of listening to each other (which implies that he’s been doing something wrong).

3. “All I Want for Christmas Is You” by Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men

Boyz II Men’s version, released in 1994 and featuring Mariah Carey, is a duet between two lovers who discuss what they would like to receive for Christmas.

The woman in the song is planning on giving her boyfriend a present of his own, but he keeps asking her what she wants.

She tells him that she doesn’t need anything, just him.

In 2010, Carey re-released “All I Want for Christmas Is You” as part of her album Merry Christmas II You and added background vocals from some of today’s biggest names: Justin Bieber, Jay Leno, and Shaquille O’Neal (yes).

4. “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” by Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell

This song is a classic, and it has been covered by many artists over the years.

However, the original vocalist was Marvin Gaye, with Tammi Terrell as his duet partner.

The song was released in 1967 and reached number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart for two weeks straight. It also won a Grammy Award for Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals.

The lyrics are about a couple in love who are separated when they move to different cities but still find ways to keep in touch through phone calls and letters.

5. “You’re the One That I Want” from Grease (soundtrack)

You’re the One That I Want is a duet between John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John from the film, Grease.

The song won the Academy Award for Best Original Song in 1978 and was performed by Travolta and Newton-John in the film.

The lyrics are about trying to figure out what to do on a first date with someone you like: “Should we go dutch or treat?/Or should we have fun?”

6. “The Wheels on the Bus Go Round and Round” (traditional)

This is a song that I would recommend to anyone who is driving with children.

This song will be the soundtrack to your trip, and you can sing along!

The Wheels on the Bus Go Round and Round

Round and round, round and round,

The wheels on the bus go round and round…

7. “Let It Go” from Frozen (soundtrack)

Let It Go is a song from the Frozen soundtrack.

The movie was a huge hit for Disney, who made it sound like the producers of the film were just trying to make sure they got their money’s worth out of Idina Menzel.

But let’s be honest: you know you love this song, too. You can’t help yourselves!

Because it’s such a catchy tune and has been covered by so many artists, Let It Go would make an excellent addition to your Black Friday playlist.

If you’re looking for something that will get people riled up—whether they’re shopping or not—this is definitely where I’d start!

8. “Can You Feel the Love Tonight?” from The Lion King (soundtrack)

This song is from the soundtrack of the 1994 Disney animated film The Lion King, sung by Elton John and Tim Rice.

It was released as a single on June 20, 1994, reaching number 3 on the UK Singles Chart and number 1 on both the US Billboard Hot 100 and Canadian RPM Top Singles charts.

9. “We Didn’t Start the Fire” by Billy Joel

This is the most famous song on my list, but it’s also one of the best.

“We Didn’t Start The Fire” by Billy Joel tells the story of world history from 1949 to 1989 in just under 5 minutes.

You may have heard this song before, but if you haven’t, give it a listen!

This is classic rock and roll at its best—it’s catchy, upbeat, and entertaining to listen to even if you’re not interested in history (like me).

The main reason we picked this song was that it came out during Black Friday weekend in 1989.

Conclusion

I hope these suggestions have helped you to create the ultimate Black Friday playlist.

I know that many of us will be listening to this music at work today and tomorrow, but let’s keep in mind that there’s always next year!
