    All Of The Lights by Kanye West – obviously! “Flashlights, spotlights, strobe lights, streetlights, ALL OF THE LIGHTS, ALL OF THE LIGHTS!” and I’d make RihRih proud with my vocals.

    • Cherry Alom says:

      ‘On Top Of The World’ by Imagine Dragons because i will literally be on top of the world. The lyrics are just so fitting to my situation ‘Been dreaming of this since a child. I’m on top of the world’. I’ve wanted to do the bridge climb for so long and now I have a chance during one of Sydney’s most lit up and beautiful time of the year.

  • Millicent Macena says:

    I would dance to ‘S Club Party’ by S Club 7 at the top.

    Under the shape of years
    And the weight that brought us here!

  • Lisa Lyte says:

    It as to be the Carpenters I’m On Top of the World doesn’t it? Gentle swaying would be all I’d be comfortable with up there…. no frantic dancing for me!

  • Jo says:

    Coldplay’s “Sky full of stars”… because it encapsulates the incredible experience and the tempo will certainly amplify all the vivid emotions we’d be feeling at the top!

  • Frankie Hackett says:

    I Gotta Feeling by Black Eyed Peas – a night on top of the Bridge with Vivid lights has to be good and dancing will make it that much better :)

  • Liana says:

    Chameleon by Pnau I would say the view and the colours would be most appropriate!

  • Miriam Wood says:

    I would dance to Tiesto’s Adagio to Strings: it gives me goosebumps & a big smile every time. Listening to that on top of the world during Vivid = super epic goosebumps!

    Once we get to the top of the bridge we should sing the dance hit song with the most appropriate word – ‘Down, down, down, down, down!’ Haha

    Song called: ‘Dance- Get Get Down’

I’m 51 and a single Mum working full time so don’t get to do much “fun” stuff any more. I’ve never done a Bridge Climb before but know heaps of people who have an who rave about it.

    Climbing the bridge overlooking Sydney Harbour during Vivid would be a total dream, the song is perfect from an amazing Aussie band!

  • Thomas O'Sullivan says:

    The YMCA

    Also; who can say no to the Dance Commander – he hands out the orders for fun.

  • Marika says:

    The song I and my friends will dance to is Justin Timberlake’s “Dance”. Aside from the fact that it’s a cool song with a great title, we are also planning to perform the dance to the song at our wedding ceremony later in the year. So, what better spot to practice than on top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge :)

  • Martin Lynch says:

    I would like to dance to Agadoo with all the appalling dance moves as it would really embarrass my kids and that is a father’s duty.

    I would boogey to “September” by Earth, Wind and Fire because on a 70s dance-floor on the Harbour Bridge I’d want to bust a move to a very funky song.

  • Tracey Taylor says:

    We have only just begun was the last song my husband danced to at our wedding 36 years ago.

  • Lou says:

    Kraftwerk – Neon Lights

    …because during Vivid, Sydney really is “made of lights”. Plus, with only one verse of lyrics to learn, the group can fully focus on their dance moves.

  • Melanie Roseman says:

    I’m on top of the world by Imagine Dragons. Waiting for this for a while now, paying my dues to the dirt and been dreaming of this since a child.

    Once I reach the summit, your eyes will be exposed to ME enthusiastically cutting some shapes on the “Harbour Bridge Dance floor” to Van Halen’s “Standing on top of the world”

  • Katie says:

    Lights will guide you home by Coldplay, while not a classic ‘dance’ song, a homage to our beautiful city, lit up in all its glory. Magic from above.

  • Melissa Davis says:

    Shake it off because if you’re on the best of the best (our Aussie bridge), you have to sing the best (& be able to shake it in style!).

  • Amie Falls says:

    Forever in a Daze by Flying Colours. The riff would compliment the awesome colours of vivid amazingly. It’s also a top song for accomplishment. Like Rocky on those stairs!

  • Liz Morton says:

    I’d take my three rebellious, unavailable gorgeous children and break into a soulful, out of key rendition of Bridges Not Walls and revel in their embarrassment

  • Melinda Perrottet says:

    I would love to dance to 1999 by Prince. It would be a fitting tribute to him and it’d just be a rockin’ tune to boogie on down to on top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

  • Adeline Nguyen says:

    Rather Be – clean bandit
    this song always gets me hyped up copying the crazy dance from the music video. That and being on top of the Bridge this track is perfect!

    I would boogie to Pink Floyd’s “shine you crazy diamond” because it’s 26mins long so I’d get to spend ages at the top soaking in the incredible views of Sydney and Vivid!

  • One of my original tunes. It would make for a very memorable moment and a ripper snapchat and instagram post

  • Jane says:

    “The Presets – My People” – such an Iconic Aussie Indie-Dance song fit for the Iconic Bridge and I am at the top of the bridge dancing with my “People”

  • Cecilia says:

    ‘Can’t Stop the Feeling’ because we’ll get that sunshine in our pockets upon seeing the electric lights all through our city, flying up high on top of the Harbour Bridge.

  • Michael says:

    Dancing in the moonlight (Toploader) because that’s what we’ll be doing and it will sound awesome blasting out on top of the bridge. Then let all the 70’s choons commence!

  • Whitney says:

    I Will Survive by Gloria Gaynor. A solidified banger that has been the soundtrack to my tribulations. A power ballad that is worthy of the heights of the Harbour Bridge.

  • Catherine Nemanic says:

    MGMT’s ‘Electric Feel’ because it has an awesome beat and would match the amazing vibe of Vivid’s flashing lights as seen from above the harbour.

  • Martin says:

    “Thriller” by Michael Jackson, such a epic and groundbreaking song and will suit the Vivid experience completely. Plus my bestfriends (who I would ask to come if I won) and I used to dance to this back at Uni on a weekly basis but haven’t danced to this in around ten years so would be a fab reunion at the top of the bridge!

  • Alana Hyde says:

    I would dance to “Good Feeling” by Flo Rida! A song about feeling brave, powerful & lucky. Its an awesome dance floor party track to celebrate Vivid & my victory!.

  • Courtney says:

    Queen – “Don’t stop me now”
    Step 1: Win Prize
    Step 2: Climb…Dance
    “I’m a shooting star leaping through the sky
    Like a tiger defying the laws of gravity”


    “Lucy in the sky with diamonds” When I look up into the night sky I will see an endless number of beautiful stars to compliment the colourful vivid spectacular below!

  • Nicholas Richard says:

    Damn. It’s already been said but Queen – Don’t Stop Me Now. You simply can’t not feel good and dance to it and ‘float around in ecstasy’… I’m having such a good time, I’m having a ball.

  • Scot Barker says:

    Have to be Celebration as that is what we would be doing when we climb the bridge to see the best it and sydney have to offer

  • Lexy H says:

    “I Love the Nightlife” by Alicia BRIDGES for sure,
    can’t wait to hit the dancefloor,
    enjoying the nightlife way up high,
    appreciating the vivid lights from the sky.

  • Megan says:

    Atop a vivid coat hanger, we make the climb. I can’t stop this feeling; I’m having the time of my life dancing in the moonlight to “Bright Lights Bigger City”.

  • Peter Edmonds says:

    no song. I’d want to experience it “au naturale”
    the fact I was on top of the bridge!!… with the sound of the bridge & city below; the whole city
    laid out below changing colour & image as if I was floating would make a wonderful memory of its own

  • Alanah Ward says:

    I would rock out to the musical masterpiece ‘Breaking Free’ from High School Musical.
    “We’re soarin’, flying
    There’s not a star in heaven

    What could be more fitting?

  • Louisa Frail says:

    Eye of the tiger
    Im scared of heights, but will do this if i win
    to conquer my fears with plenty of tears.
    lets hope i dont win oops i mean lets hope i win.

    Joy to the World is what I’d be dancing to because thats what Vivid brings, and from the top of the Bridge I’d feel on top of the world.

  • Thi Tran says:

    Climbing the Bridge, the nights just begun;
    We boogie to ‘Girls Just Want to Have Fun’.
    Getting our groove on, me and my bestie;
    Surrounded by lights, happy and carefree.

  • Judy Jansen says:

    Its a long way to the top (if you want to rock and roll) ACDC as it will keep me inspired while climbing and celebrating once achieved.

  • Roberto Colombi says:

    Yellow by Coldplay… ‘Look at the stars, Look how they shine for you’ those are the first two lines and it will certainly be a ‘Stellar’bration for us climbing the iconic bridge and seeing all the vivid imagery too. A perfect night, in a perfect place, in the perfect city!

  • Emma Lunn says:

    Jennifer Warnes & Bill Medley’s Classic I’ve had the ‘Climb’ of my life and it will be an experience and occasion we’ll never forget

  • Amanda Anderson says:

    being an 80’s music lover, Boy George in Oz and the fact that Vivid is all about changing colours – Karma Chameleon for sure!

    Someone like me
    Can learn to be
    Like someone like me

  • Anna says:

    “Dancing on the ceiling!”

    because I am honest to god terrified of heights but am trying to do all of the things I have been too scared to do.

    I want you back – Jackson 5; as it’s the song we listen to on every party since I know these other three friends and it connects good memories + the 70s!

  • Cassie says:

    Somewhere over the rainbow – it’s a new world with new colours and the arch is kinda like a rainbow, pretty magical

    I am free, free falling from Tom Petty. That would be an amazing song because it would be the only time in life that you could feel so free.

    Alive by Empire of The Sun. What could make you feel more alive than climbing Sydney’s greatest icon, during one of its greatest annual events, and dancing the night away.

  • James Weaver says:

    Mr Blue Sky by Electric Light Orchestra. Dance around on top of the bridge like baby groot! Feel this song would match the opportunity perfectly.

  • Lana says:

    Once ontop of the bridge I would sing “Lights” by Ellie Goulding. Show off my flair and flaunt it singing at the top of my lungs to my bestie and embarrassing her “You show the lights that stop me turn to stone
    You shine them when I’m alone
    And so I tell myself that I’ll be strong
    And dreaming when they’re gone
    ‘Cause they’re calling, calling, calling me home
    Calling, calling, calling home
    You show the lights that stop me turn to stone
    You shine them when I’m alone”

  • Joana Leao says:

    I’d play my favourite song Waiting For A Star To Fall. We can be the “stars” on the bridge among the bright lights of Sydney. This tune would definitely get everybody else climbing in the feel-good mood!

  • Cathie says:

    The Chainsmokers feat: Coldplay, I Want Something Just Like This. With my partner on Bridge Climb I want someone i can turn to, somebody i can kiss.

  • Laura says:

    My song would be “JUMP – by Criss Cross” it’s a song that you can’t stand still to it just makes you want to boogie when it’s playing, and who wanted want that “oh what a feeling” style photo opportunity showing you mid jump on top of the bridge with the lights shining around (note I don’t mean jumping off the bridge that’s just sick – I only mean a quick jump on the spot) 😬😜😳😃

  • Kirsten says:

    Gonna bring some Kanye “Good Life” on top cause “i gots to shine + (now throw yo’ hands up in the sky)” and it would be ahhhhh mmmaaazzzzinngggggg

    Jump by van halen because there really couldn’t be a more inappropriate song to sing 134 meters off the ground

  • Cassandra says:

    Toploader’s Dancing in the Moonlight! Like it says, “We like our fun and we never fight. You can’t dance and stay uptight” – can’t argue with that while Harbous Bridge boogeying!

    Touch the sky – Kanye! Can never go wrong with a jam like that when you’re up that high !

    Nice Things by the Menzingers because you have to “climb the wall, before the fall”. Has a special meaning to me & friends

    ‘Across the Rainbow Bridge’ by Amon Amarth. It’s a bit funky and metal. Perfect song title after climbing a VIVID ‘heavy metal’ bridge! (pun intended)

  • Cynthia Ong says:

    “Liability” by Lorde because i’m hella unfit and i’d obviously be a liability to the 3 friends i drag up the bridge with me. i’d apologise in the form of awkward body movement

  • Victoria Knowles says:

    ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow’, because who doesn’t love singing that. Also, I’ll be on top of the most amazing rainbow there is, looking down on a whole bunch of rainbows.

  • Victoria Knowles says:

    ‘Dancing in the Moonlight’ by Toploader, it’s my partners favourite song and he will have just gotten back from a year away. Also, it’s more than appropriate considering the circumstances. WOO!

  • Angelica says:

    Keeping the vibe going for boogying up the Harbour Bridge, I would pump up ‘Dancing in the Moonlight’! Nothing can get a shimmy in your shoulders or a beat in your feet quite like these groovy tunes.

  • Kate Brewer says:

    A mash up of dancing in the dark by Bruce springstein and started from the bottom by Drake. It’s like Bruce and Drake wrote these songs for the vivid bridge climb. Dancing from the bottom to the top of the bridge and in the dark surrounded by the stunning lights of vivid!!

  • Koko Kawaura says:

    Katy Perry’s ‘Firework’ because I believe that Vivid is about expressing oneself and our society through art and celebrating our ability to create something extraordinary and her song embodies just that! It’s also a vibrant and heart filled song that needs to be spread across Sydney with good vibes and dancing!

  • Jemma mcculloch says:

    “Dance with me” Dizzie Rascal – the rainbow dance floor looks just like the spot I met my husband 8 years ago and we danced to that song would love to recreate it on top of the harbour bridge!!

  • Chloe says:

    Don’t stop believin’ – Journey
    As I feel there wouldn’t be anything else appropriate for a small town girl to belt out across Sydney. Plus I’ll be ‘holding on’ for sure.

  • Alicia B says:

    I would love to dance on the top of the harbour bridge to ‘Slice of Heaven’ by Footrot Flats with my 3 kiwi besties who are about to head back over the ditch to New Zealand for good because we all think Sydney is a slice of heaven, especially during Vivid, and to celebrate how heavenly it is to have them as friends!!

  • Cathryn Buckerfield says:

    1 Little duck went out one day over the bridge and far away – because i won time away from my kids, hubby and obligations – YEAH!

  • Jiyeon Son says:

    I would like to dance on the top with ‘Rihanna- work’. I have not had time to look around where I live by work work work work work and no holiday. I wish I have a chance to be on the top of Sydney as holiday.

    Our bridge and our harbour is “Simply the Best”! “I feel the Earth Move” as we “Dance the Night Away” up “On Top of the World”! “It’s Gotta Be Love”!

    The Climb – Miley Cyrus so that I can be overly dramatic and get away with it because it’s an appropriate song.
