10 Best Dance Songs of All Time
Amidst a sea of sweaty bodies and the 10 best dance songs of all time, you hear your favorite dance tune. If you have any taste, you'll find that favorite tune in this list of the best dance songs of all time.
- "Into the Groove" by Madonna -- Though Madonna's "Vogue" may be the more memorable dance song because of the dance move the song spawned, you can't deny that this tune inspires you to shake your hips just that little bit more.
"What is Love?" by Haddaway -- If you were alive during the '90s, then you've probably heard this song. And there's a reason; it's fun, dancey, and strangely powerful. If you really want to be blown away, watch the incredibly strange music video.
- "I Want Candy" by Bow Wow Wow -- From the fantastic guitar riff that starts the song to the almost tribal beats pulsing throughout, you'd be a fool to ignore the majesty of this version, the best version, of "I Want Candy."
"Waterloo" by ABBA -- Comparing your love life to Napoleon's defeat at Waterloo isn't quite the norm for most dance songs, but this is the greatest history lesson in a pop song ever.
"Atomic" by Blondie -- With a pulsing rhythm and a great guitar riff mixed with the smooth vocals of Debbie Harry, this song has everything you want from a great dance song... even if you're not really sure what the song's about.
- "Don't Leave Me This Way" by Thelma Houston -- A disco classic, the song starts out slowly and builds up to a fantastic crescendo that undoubtedly has left not one person in his seat. Great, great song.
- "You Spin Me Round (Like a Record)" by Dead or Alive -- This unbelievably fun '80s hit is flamboyant, catchy and always playful. When you hear this at a wedding, it is likely you won't be able to stay seated. That is, unless you're in a wheelchair.
- "Keep It Comin' Love" by KC and the Sunshine Band -- Though probably not the most popular of the Sunshine Band's disco repertoire, this song has the catchiest melodies and instrumentation of all of their disco hits.
"Around the World" by Daft Punk -- A more laidback dance song, its beat and strange robotic voices (characteristic of almost all Daft Punk songs) still had plenty of people boogying down during the 1990s, and beyond.
- "Single Ladies" by Beyonce -- Perhaps it was an combination of Beyonce's video, where she showed off those fabulous dance moves, and the song, but when you just listen to the dance hit, you can't help but love it.
