The ultimate prom playlist

With all due respect to the organizers and the DJ, let’s be honest: in the past, our school dance music has been… less than adequate. The songs at recent dances have felt too familiar to  middle school dances, and no one wants to revisit those. But don’t fear, we’re here to put together the perfect playlist for our next and best dance, Prom 2023. Following is our list (in order) of what we believe to be an amazing Prom playlist. We’ve included something for everyone, some country, some rap, some oldies, and some pop. We’ve got hype songs, slow songs, and scream-it-at-the-top-of-your-lungs songs. Enjoy!
