New Girl’s final season is coming! And though that makes us very sad, it also makes us feel nostalgic. Here are the ten best songs that are featured on New Girl!

#10. Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes – (I’ve Had) The Time Of My Life

This song was beautifully covered (cough) during one of the first moments of New Girl, when Schmidt, Winston and Nick tried to make Jess happy again by singing ‘(I’ve Had) The Time Of My Life’. And did it work? Find out for yourself.

#9. LMFAO – Sexy And I Know It

New Girl is known for the fun and loving friendship between three guys and the ‘new girl’. What to expect from the series? A lot of awkward dances! And what song is better to dance to than ‘Sexy And I Know It’ from LMFAO? Exactly!

#8. House Of Pain – Jump Around

Although the episodes contain a lot of new songs, there’s also place for the classics. During this song, Schmidt fixes something that was broken and Nick, Jess and Schmidt use ‘Jump Around’ as a celebration song.

#7. The Pointer Sisters – I’m So Excited

New Girl seems to be a supporter of female voices in music. Scroll through the list (see the bottom of the article for a Spotify list) and you’ll see a lot of songs sung by women. ‘I’m So Excited’ by The Pointer Sisters is even Jess’ ringtone!

#6. 4 Non Blondes – What’s Up

Do you already hear Jess’ voice in your head when thinking of this song? It fits perfectly with Zooey Deschanel’s voice that it’s almost scary.

#5. Jessie J, Nicki Minaj, Ariana Grande – Bang Bang

Talking about female songs, this is one with a lot of girlpower! ‘Bang Bang’ was one of 2014’s biggest songs so a feature in New Girl was not surprising.

#4. Foreigner – I Want To Know What Love Is

One of the most fun things in New Girl is seeing the relationship of the four develop. In one of the episodes on season 4, it’s guys night! Nick has just taught Winston and Schmidt how to do laundry (no, we’re not kidding) and after that they build a fort and talk and sing about love. Really. It’s not a joke: watch it here.

#3. Los Del Rio – Macarena

Maybe songs like these are part of the reason why this generation loves New Girl so much: it features a lot of throwback songs! Los Del Rio’s ‘Macarena’ is played during a flashback of Winston, where he is back on a middle school dance.

#2. Seinabo Sey – Still

When you’re a New Girl bingewatcher like we are, you probably know exactly when you’ve heard thing song during the series. If you still want to watch the series and don’t want to get spoiled: don’t read the comment section from this video. Don’t say we didn’t warn you!

#1. Lorde – Green Light

Well, again we won’t spoil, but this song captured an extremely important moment in the New Girl series. It was the ending of season six and it makes us long for season 7! It will be New Girl’s final season, but luckily we live in the 21st century where we can watch it over, and over, and over…
