"I love putting on Madonna's True Blue record (yes, actual vinyl!) and letting it play while I get ready. It's one of the only albums I can listen to all the way through."

-Shannon Nash, Jewelry & Accessories Editor


"Basically anything from The Rolling Stones’ Sticky Fingers album, but you really can’t help but dance while getting ready if you throw on Brown Sugar. Another recent favorite is Me & My Girls by Selena Gomez—perfect pre-GNO jam for obvious reasons.”

-Kristi Mikesky, Features Editor


"There are literally so many good ones that come to mind. My girls' night playlist runs the gamut from No Doubt's Just A Girl, Britney Spears' Womanizer, India Arie's Video, Madonna's Lucky Star and Erykah Badu's Bag Lady but I always have to hear Lily Allen's subtle man-eater anthem Smile before I hit the town."

-Stephanie Montes, Senior Beauty Editor


"Cool For The Summer by Demi Lovato is my guilty pleasure all year round. I love getting ready to this song with my friends or just sing it at the top of my lungs when I'm alone. No shame."

-Amy Lee, Associate Fashion Editor


"Boney M's Take The Heat Off Me record because it's a fun, upbeat disco record. It always makes everyone want to dance especially my favorite songs Daddy Cool and Sunny."

-Christian David, Art Director


"My girls night out jam is anything Justin Bieber. Nothing gets an Uber full of girls singing quite like a little JB."

-Claudia Graziano, Social Media Coordinator


"Crave You by Flight Facilities always puts me in the right mood for a GNO—it's fun, flirty and just a dash of sultry. It never fails to give me that extra boost of confidence."

-Rebecca Iloulian, Marketing Coordinator

Song Lyrics

"It may come as a shock to most, but I'm actually privy to many a hip-hop lyric. Wild For The Night by ASAP Rocky really amps me up and gets the energy flowing."

-Laura Lajiness, New York Editor


"Worst Behavior by Drake—the title is pretty self explanatory. This is a good song to get ready to when you are most likely going to go out and make questionable decisions."

-Samantha Corbett, Graphic Designer


"I like to think I have her pipes. In reality my sing along probably sounds more like a cat being tortured but it gets me in the party mood."

-Nicky Deam, Editorial Director
