It's time to have so much fun with this playlist that provides so much entertainment and confusion!
Written by Farhan Subi
Beware of what you see, because not everything is what they appear to be. Or in this case, sound! This is a very different and a fun take on different songs over so many eras. It’s the April Fool’s Theme Pack and this time, it features songs that sound so similar to each other but at the same time, it also may or may not sound the same. Songs like Got To Give It Up By Marvin Gaye and Blurred lines by Robin Thicke may sound extremely similar to each other but at the same time, songs like I'm Coming Out by Diana Ross and Mo Money, Mo Problems by Notorious B.I.G may have some samples that sound very close but aren’t the same song at all. It’s a very fun edition and one can learn about new songs and it could be their new groove. So buckle up! Looks (or in this case, the sounds!) may seem incredibly deceiving so don’t let yourself be tricked or fooled now!
As with every party, first you need to decorate the room. There aren’t a lot of themed decorations for this one. However, like we mentioned earlier, looks may be deceiving. You can choose to use a balloon arch if you want and maybe put up some frames of clowns and jokers around. One funny thing could be that you could probably add in a clown behind a fake frame, if that’s possible. You can also do simple things like add in a whoopee cushion or a fake pinata, something that drops random objects when broken or almost never breaks despite so many futile attempts. You can greet your guests with a fake hand if that makes things a lot more interesting. Other decorations also include a pinata in the shape of the number one and again, fill it with the most random things you could find.
Next up is dressing sense. This might be fairly easy. Ask your guests to dress up in some of the goofiest dresses they could or they could pretend to be someone else or maybe even have a couple of tricks up their sleeves. They can even dress up like a clown if they wanted to. There are so many ways you can go with this. Some ideas are the classic long handkerchief gimmick or they could have a flower on their coat (if they are wearing one) that squirts water. Simple but fun additions to their regular dresses can also be encouraged! After all, it’s all about having fun!
Let’s take a look at food. There’s so much potential here! Especially since there exist so many recipes that look different but tastes completely opposite! For example, you can make a meatloaf cupcake with mashed potato frosting. It’s easy for almost anyone to be fooled by that, especially since it closely resembles a good old chocolate cupcake! Or you also have the option of preparing regular dishes like cream puffs but there’s a catch - one of the pastries might have something else other than a sweet filling! It’s a fun prank to play and basically, a Russian roulette version using cream puffs. You can also make jello in a glass with a straw, tricking your guests into thinking that it’s an actual drink but once they drink using the straw, they’ll be surprised!
Now for the showcase event, the bingo itself! You can ask someone talented to sing it with the karaoke in the background or if it makes things easier, you can always play it using our amazing playlist that’s available on Spotify, Apple Music and Amazon Music. While the songs are being played, you can always ask the guests to join in if they know the lyrics to the song or if you have a large enough space to host it, you can also ask them to dance to the song. Making a party lively is what makes it a party. And since it is April Fool’s themed, you can play some random tracks and ask them to identify it but there’s a catch - it isn’t part of the playlist! It just adds to the fun!
Finally, you need to leave your guests with a memorable gift. One interesting gift you can give them is a simple t-shirt that says ‘You can’t trick me’ if they have managed to bypass all the tricks laid out there. Or for the winner of the game, you can give them a bunch of Post-Its that already have ‘Kick Me’ written on it. Alternatively, you can give them a whoopee cushion if you can!
These are some ideas that your guests would certainly enjoy for the April Fool’s Themed Music Bingo and if you have better ideas, feel free to let us know! Again, you can find the playlist on every major music streaming platform like Amazon Music, Spotify, Apple Music, etc.
Happy music bingo!
