Another year has come and gone, and – believe it or not – the countdown to 2024 draws near. 

Everyone knows that every New Year’s Eve party needs an iconic playlist filled with anthemic singalongs to build up the anticipation for the stroke of midnight. It can be hard to find the time over the busy holiday season to curate the perfect blend of nostalgic hits and dancefloor bangers. But have no fear! RAC is here to help check the task off your end-of-year to-do list. 

Last year, we curated 10 Perfectly-Timed New Year’s Eve Anthems to usher in 2023. Our readers loved the article so much that we assembled another irresistible list of party faves, along with the exact time to play them so that the best line hits right when the clock strikes 12.
