A party is a person or group of persons that compose a single entity which can be identified as one for the purposes of the law. Parties include: plaintiff (person filing suit), defendant (person sued or charged with a crime), petitioner (files a petition asking for a court ruling), respondent (usually in opposition to a petition or an appeal), cross-complainant (a defendant who sues someone else in the same lawsuit), or cross-defendant (a person sued by a cross-complainant).

"Party" is a song recorded by American singer Beyoncé for her fourth studio album, 4 (2011). It features guest vocals from American rapper André 3000 and uncredited vocals from Kanye West, and was released by Columbia Records as the fourth single from 4 on August 30, 2011. The song was written by Kanye West, Jeff Bhasker, Beyoncé, Dexter Mills, Douglas Davis and Ricky Walters and produced by Beyoncé and West and co-produced by Bhasker. A midtempo R&B song, "Party" exhibits elements of the 1980s funk and soul music, and samples the 1985 song " La Di Da Di". It recalls the work of New Edition and Prince, among others. Built on a 808-retro beat, multi-tracked harmonies, and a smooth groove, the song's instrumentation includes slow-bouncing synthesizers, keyboard tones, and drums. Lyrically, "Party" gives ode to political themes such as feminism and sexual empowerment. In his rap verses, André 3000 references milk and gets philosophical about his own career. "Party" was nominated for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration at the 54th Grammy Awards.
"Party" was acclaimed by contemporary music critics, who praised André 3000's verses, as well as the production handled by West and Beyoncé's emphatic, yet sensual vocals. Following the release of 4, "Party" charted at number 19 on the South Korea Gaon International Singles Chart. It debuted on the US Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart in July 2011, and peaked at number 2 on the chart for three consecutive weeks. The song reached number 50 on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart based on radio support.

A party is a group of characters adventuring together in a role-playing game. In tabletop role-playing, a party is composed of a group of players, occasionally with the addition of non-player character allies (sometimes called henchmen) controlled by those players or by the gamemaster. In computer games, the relationship between the party and the players varies considerably. Online role-playing games or MMORPG parties are often, in the above sense, of the same constituency as tabletop parties, except that the allies are always controlled to a lesser or greater extent by the computer AI. In single-player computer games, the player generally controls all party members to a varying degree.
Examples of games which have parties include the tabletop RPG Vampire: the Requiem, the single-player role-playing Baldur's Gate series, MMORPGs such as World of Warcraft, Anarchy Online and Warhammer Online, and the multi-player computer action-RPG Final Fantasy XI.

Party is a compilation album by Pet Shop Boys released exclusively in Brazil on 4 November 2009.
The album was released to coincide with the Brazilian leg of their 2009 Pandemonium tour. The album includes both past hits and some newer material. Party includes songs that were heavily featured in the following TV Globo soap operas: "Being boring" (Meu Bem Meu Mal OST), "Domino dancing" (O Salvador da Patria OST), "West End girls" (Selva de Pedra OST) and "King of Rome" ( Viver a Vida OST).
Several mistakes have occurred with the track listing. For example, "West End Girls" appears in its original 7" form, contrary to the labeling as the 10" version. "Paninaro '95" was included on the album, yet placed as track 3 and labelled as the 7" mix. Also, the original 1992 7" version of "Go West" appears on the album, a rare inclusion as it has not appeared on any Pet Shop Boys compilations so far. All the mistakes were fixed on later pressings of the compilation, since April 2010. Due to all the fixed mistakes on the later pressings, some edits had to be made for all 16 tracks to fit on one Compact Disc. After the mistakes were fixed, the compilation totaled 79:19, leaving just 41 seconds left on a standard CD. Five tracks were smoothly edited to fit on the album: the 10-inch version of "West End Girls" lost 15 seconds; "Love Comes Quickly" lost 4 seconds; "What Have I Done to Deserve This?" lost 7 seconds; the album version of "Go West" lost 18 seconds and "Love etc." lost 17 seconds.

Commercially, the single was a success in South Korea—the digital version peaked atop the Gaon Digital Chart, while the physical edition charted at number two on the Gaon Album Chart.
