When you are planning a stag weekend, a top best man will leave no stone unturned in their quest for the ultimate send off. Making sure you’ve got the music sorted is no exception. Make sure you’ve got these classics in your stag party playlist.
1. Queen, Greatest Hits Part 1
For the journey there, why not choose one of the ultimate driving compilations of all time? These are solid gold classics, that everyone in a stag party will know most of. It may be a bit clichéd these days, but it’s a fantastic album from start to finish.
2. Various Artists Motown 50
If you like your music a little more ‘groovy’ than Freddie and the boys, then this compilation spanning 50 years of Detroit’s finest export will certainly get you and your boys in the mood for a good time.
3. The Smiths, The Smiths
Every stag party is almost obligated to be full of jokes about how much life will change for the worse when the big day finally comes. So, why not underline these gags with the wailing of Morrisey and company? As well as being thoroughly miserable, their self-titled album contains many classics.
4. Oasis, Definitely Maybe
Relive your youth (if you’re a child of the 90s) and listen to some great tunes with Definitely Maybe! The BBC has described the tracks contained within as “heroic, gigantic pop monuments” and who can argue with that?
5. Frankie Goes to Hollywood, Welcome to the Pleasuredome
If your stag experience is going to include a spot of paintballing action, the frenzied beat of Two Tribes from this album is bound to get you pumped up, whilst Relax features as one of Q magazine’s top tracks from the 1980s.
6. James Brown, Live at the Apollo
You’ve got the activities out of the way, headed back to your hotel room to start the serious business of getting ready to hit the bars. Who better to soundtrack your transformation than the Godfather of Soul at his brilliant best?
7. Madness, Total Madness
When you’re out and about with your mates, Madness and their nutty ‘best of’ album is guaranteed to raise a smile and keep the party rolling.
8. Fatboy Slim, You’ve Come a Long Way Baby
Featuring some of the ultimate Saturday night dancing songs, Fatboy Slim’s magnificent album will get everyone in your party up and boogying.
9. Nirvana, MTV Unplugged
Featuring chilled out versions of many Nirvana standards, this is a must for the post club, post kebab comedown before you and your mates all turn in for the night.
10.John Cage, 4:33
273 seconds of pure silence, that may be required on constant repeat the morning following your stag weekend!
