TGIF. (And if it's not yet, just keep your eyes on the prize.)
The weekend! A time for relaxation. A time for contemplation. A time for — err, who are we kidding? TURN UP!!11!
You've been working all week long for this sweet, sweet respite, and you've certainly earned the right to party, let off some steam and pig out on all your favorite indulgences. And to soundtrack that experience, we've put together some of the best songs to celebrate from Friday all the way into Monday morning. (Just make sure to set your alarm.)
From certifiable house party classics (R. Kelly's "Ignition (Remix)," anyone?) to today's hottest new pop bops (Icona Pop's "Weekend" is an anthem like no other), we've got all your ragers and your regret-filled hangovers covered.

Icona Pop and Louis The Child, 'Weekend'
The first lyrics are "last night, too turnt." Enough said.
Rihanna, 'Cheers (Drink To That)'
Cheers to the freakin' weekend, indeed.
R. Kelly, 'Ignition (Remix)'
If you've ever attended a house party in your life, you've heard this song.
Jagged Edge, 'Where the Party At? (feat. Nelly)'
Bit of a throwback. We sure hope they found the party by now.
Calvin Harris, 'Ready For The Weekend'
Before he was headlining festivals, Calvin was just as happy putting on his shoes.
Paris Hilton, 'Good Time (feat. Lil Wayne)'
Were times truly ever good before this?
Kimberly Caldwell, 'On The Weekend'
This 'Idol' is far from idle.
Jessica Mauboy, 'Saturday Night (feat. Ludacris)'
The essential girls night out anthem. LAYDIESSSS!
Coldplay, 'Hymn for the Weekend'
In Coldplay, we trust.
Live out loud. Pink does!
Honestly? It's not even bad.
Black Eyed Peas, 'Weekend (feat. Esthero)'
BEP was bringing the party well before Fergie Ferg joined the club.
Euro dance escapism at its finest.
