Songs every Glasgow Uni student should have on their GUU playlist
ABBA songs must feature
It’s almost been a year since Glasgow University students were packed into Beer Bar, downing Pints of Fun whilst slapping the roof to ‘C’mon Eileen’. Whilst we still may not be able to go to the union, you can try to recreate the GUU vibe by making homemade pints of fun and making a playlist. We’ve added a couple of song recommendations for you to add to your playlist to have the ultimate Beer bar experience.
Come on Eileen – Dexy’s Midnight Runners
A classic that you really should just expect to be in there. Gets you up on your feet, and whether you’re part of the rugby team or not, you can’t help but slap the ceiling.
Love Story – Taylor Swift
Oddly, when you’re drunk in Beer Bar, this is an absolute banger? We all have our Romeo/Juliet that our friends disapprove of and somehow this shows when we end up singing along, our arms stretched over our friends, whilst making eye contact with ‘they who should not be named’.
Vouslez Vous – ABBA
A classic which can be heard in HIVE and Beer Bar, this is an all round banger!
Stacey’s Mom – Fountains of Wayne
The person that your pals tell you to avoid is more than likely the type to put this on in Beer Bar.
Chelsea Dagger – The Fratellis
It is impossible to hear this in Beer Bar and not want to jump around to it.
Shut Up and Dance – Walk the Moon
This is definitely a love or hate song, that is most commonly played in Hive. Its cheesy and repetitive, but after a few pints of fun you can’t help but sing along to it.
Shape of You – Ed Sheeren
We love a bit of Ed don’t we. Grew up as his music progressed from A-Team to Afterglow. Probably a song you may get with someone too – don’t ask me why or how, it just happens.
Does your mother know – ABBA
Another ABBA song suggestion of course, because they are all bangers. This one is especially good for signing along to with your mates.
Like a G6 – Far East Movement
Who knows what a G6 is? But its a good song nonetheless.
Africa – Toto
This was first released in 1982 and is a timeless CLASSIC that will ALWAYS be a banger.
September – Earth, Wind and Fire.
Another timeless banger that everyone in Beer Bar will LOVE you for putting on.
I Wanna Dance with Somebody – Whitney Houston
How can we miss this one out. Played in all clubs every night. The vibe is unreal. Heard in both Beer Bar and Hive, it really never gets old.
Foundations – Kate Nash
This one doesn’t need an explanation, it is just an absolute tune.
Low – Flo Rida
Describing the events of slipping in the corridor to the HIVE loo’s. The big question… How low are you willing to go on the sticky Hive floors?
The Climb – Miley Cyrus
The next time we hear this in Beer Bar it really will hit differently. The journey it has been for us to get back into Beer Bar, with a Pint of Fun, has been long and arduous. I for one can’t wait to sing this at the top of my lungs.
Mr Brightside – The Killers
This might be one of the most overplayed songs of all time, but it is another ultimate club classic that you can’t help but sing along to.
Rasputin – Boney M.
This is such a strange song, and yet if you are a couple of drinks down you can’t help but sing and dance to it.
The Edge of Glory – Lady Gaga
An iconic song sang by an iconic artist.
All Star – Smash Mouth
Whether you’ve watched Shrek or not, All Star is a complete bop. Enough said.
Of course there are many other classics that fill the dance floor of Hive, and a thousand others that will pass through your ears whilst in Beer Bar. These are just some of our personal favourites.
