The Christmas party season may be dominated by Mariah Carey and Michael Buble but as we count down to New Year's Eve, we're on the hunt for NZ's ultimate party anthem.

NZ On Screen has pulled together a playlist full of Kiwi anthems, guaranteed to brighten up any beach-side bash.

From Kings to The Clean, Split Enz to Savage, there's something for everyone. So, put the sausage rolls on, clear out the garage, pull up a crate and get ready to bust out some serious moves.

Below are ten songs to get the party started (and we'll have ten more tomorrow). Plus, there's a chance for you to have your say as to who should make it onto the ultimate playlist.
