Daphne Charice
"I like something easy to dance to, especially when I have a drink in hand."

Too Good – Drake ft. Rihanna
Starboy – The Weeknd
Juju On That Beat – Zay Hilfigerrr & Zayion McCall

Jane Chuck
"New year is all about dancing and lots of good vibes!"

Love Never Felt So Good – Michael Jackson ft. Justin Timberlake
Can't Stop The Feeling – Justin Timberlake
24K Magic – Bruno Mars

Patricia Knudsen
"I'll always be in a good mood if I listen to these songs."

Nobody To Love – Sigma
Can't Do Without You – Caribou
Red – Phoria (even though it's more emo)

Andrea Tim, Online Associate Editor
"Goodbye 2016, I'm still alive, sorry you couldn't bring me down."

F*ck You – Lily Allen
I Don't Care – Fall Out Boy
Rehab – Amy Winehouse (with emphasis on "No no no")

Medina Azaldin, Editorial Assistant
"My vibe (TBH I don't think I'm cool enough for the word 'vibe') is millennial with a Tumblr, meets a sexy burlesque dancer meets bubblegum pop. You can easily mistake my playlist for that of a 16-year-old. #SorryNotSorry."

Wild – Troye Sivan
Tumblr Girls – G Eazy
Let Me Love You – DJ Snake feat. Justin Bieber

Grace Wong, Beauty Editor
"Behold, the 'nobody to impress cause I'm spending it alone' playlist (only semi-fictional)."

Crying in Public – Chairlift
Trampoline – Kero Kero Bonito
A New Day Has Come – Celine Dion

Verinia Khoo, Online Writer
"I like a bit of jazz, and soul mixed in with a little rock and roll on any normal day so my tastes aren't going to change even for NYE."

Cry to Me – Solomon Burke
Heartbreak Hotel – Elvis Presley
Vultures – John Mayer

Eugene Phua, Men's Health Editor-in-Chief
"2016 has not been a good year. It seems like there were more negatives than positives. So I've decided to create a short playlist of tunes that should get you out of the dumps and off your seat. Just let loose and dance your heart out. It's good cardio anyway and, as Mr. Worldwide said: 'Any day above ground is a good day." To me, that's always worth celebrating. And remember: heaven's got a plan for you in 2017."

Don't You Worry Child – Swedish House Mafia ft. John Martin
Time of Our Lives – Pitbull & Ne-Yo
Calling – Alesso & Sebastian Ingresso (Original Instrumental)

Muna Noor, Editorial Director
"I like to go for uncoordinated dancing and kisses at the stroke of midnight."

Skwod – Nadia Rose
Girls Like – Tinie Tempah ft Zara Larsson
Shut Up Kiss Me – Angel Olsen

Sim Wie Boon, Esquire's Web Editor
"Anything I listen to on the drive home on a long highway at 4am is good enough for NYE."

Never – Koreless
Clenched Teeth – OKAY KAYA
Aquarium – Nosaj Thing
