Perfect Prom: The Very Best Songs For a Brilliant High School Prom Playlist (Part One)

By on Jun 26, 2015 in Limousine Hire |

Prom is often a brilliant but emotional night. It’s the last big event that you will be celebrating with all your school friends before you all go your separate ways for college, sixth form or employment. It’s a chance to get together, have a good dance, and say an emotional goodbye to 5 years of high school.

Here at Swift Travel, we don’t just specialise in providing the best party bus in London, we also provide luxury limousine hire that is perfect for proms! As we recently wrote a fun two part series that looked at some of the classic party songs that are guaranteed to get you in the mood, we thought it would be fun to put together the perfect prom playlist! These songs will be perfect for blasting out in one of our limousines!

Check out the songs we chose below!

Graduation (Friends Forever) by Vitamin C

This song is perfect for listening to on your way to or from prom – but be aware that it might make you emotional! It’s a bittersweet song that will make you think about all the good times that you have had during high school with all your best friends, whilst reminding you that it’s time to grow up and move on. Whilst you will see all your friends again, it’s often very different once you are not attending classes together every day.

I Gotta Feeling by The Black Eyed Peas

Whilst the previous song was all about remembering the good times, this song is more about creating the good times!

What’s better than a song talking about having a really good night? Prom only lasts the one evening, so leave all your worries about the future at the door and having a fantastic evening!

Forever by Chris Brown

“It’s like I have waited my whole life for this one night // cause we’ve only got one night”

The lyrics to the song are perfect for summing up some of the feelings that people will be having about attending prom. It’s often an event that you have looked forward to for a long time, and it’s important that you make the one night memorable. It’s also a pretty romantic song, so if you’re attending prom with your significant other – it’s perfect!

Don’t You Worry Child by Swedish House Mafia

We think this is a beautiful song and would make a really good addition to your prom playlist. It’s one of the best songs by Swedish House Mafia, and is a perfect way to say goodbye to your high school life. It was the final song for the band before they broke up, so something about that seems very fitting…

To be continued…..
