What better way to get yourself in the party mood than by listening to some jams while you get ready? And in that same line, what better genre to get you pumped than some colorful and fun K-Pop? On this list, we will tell you about 5 K-Pop songs that were basically made to get you in the mood!

1.  I Just Wanna Dance by Tiffany

Girl’s Generation member Tiffany’s 80s synthpop throwback is great for when you’re getting ready to dance the night away. Whether you’re going out with your friends or staying in by yourself, this song is sure to get you up on your feet! We absolutely adore this song!

Abraham’s favorite lyric: “Light reflects on the wet streets, the city is like an empty stage after a show ends”

Elisa’s favorite lyric: “I hid myself behind the masks that change every day. I just wanna get more honest right now.”

5.  Roller Coaster by Chung Ha

If the glowing neon in this video doesn’t make you want to hit the club we don’t know what will! We can barely write this article without dancing uncontrollably in front of our computer screens! Roller Coaster’s 90s R&B vibes create a fun and vibrant song that will get you off your feet!
