"Party People" (1987) is a musical composition by Todd Terry.

It samples "Move Your Body" (1986) by Marshall Jefferson, "Planet Rock" (1982) by Afrika Bambaataa and Soulsonic Force, "It's Yours" by T La Rock and Jazzy Jay, "Here We Go (Live at the Funhouse)" (1985) by Run-DMC and "Gordy's Groove" (1985) by by Choice M.C.'s feat. Fresh Gordon.

Tim Lawrence remarks about the composition that it "introduced an edgy, hip hop aesthetic to the Chicago house sound". Louie Vega, in an interview with Lawrence notes that "there was an instant reaction on the dance floor, I was playing 'Party People' six to nine months before it came out, so I got everybody into that sound."
