Are you ready to party tonight? No? That’s just because you don’t have the right Friday afternoon playlist to get you pumped for the weekend! It’s practically summer. Yay!

Every Friday afternoon, we put together a nostalgic, dance-tastic playlist of all our favorite bump ‘n grind songs from the past. This week we go back ten years in time to 1996 when artists like [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Janet Jackson[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Prince[/lastfm], and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Peter Gabriel[/lastfm]were at the height of their popularity.

10. “Venus”-[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Bananarama[/lastfm]
