Top 100 Dance Songs of All Time. 01. Y.M.C.A. –•– The Village People. 02. Night Fever –•– Bee Gees. 03. Dancing Queen –•– ABBA. 04.
- Armand Van Helden featuring Roland Clark, “Flowerz” (1999) The resolutely hetero B-boy Armand Van Helden (the same dude who would later rap “I’m looking for them female ejaculates, spreading that koochy with the masturbates”) was probably the least likely house producer this side of Green Velvet to provide the resurgent disco-house craze of the late ‘90s with a swoony anthem.
- Björk, “Big Time Sensuality” (1993) Björk’s got the turtleheart of a bona fide boogie monster of the hardest order, as anyone who’s watched her jam out to LFO’s “Freak” while performing “Hyperballad” live can plainly see.
- The Flirts, “Passion” (1982) Bobby Orlando became something of a disco pimp in the time between 1979’s “Disco Sucks” blowout and house music’s takeover.
- The Knife, “Silent Shout” (2006) Pac-Man and his red-bowed honey’s wedding song? The metronomic production—minimalist but intense beats chasing each other as if in and out of love, or nightmares—is perfectly and surreally married to the equally disquieting lyrics, which recount a flashpoint in a person’s life when their sense of complacency is shattered by a dream of falling teeth.
- Todd Terje, “Inspector Norse” (2012) The sound of "Inspector Norse" is, in a word, joyous. This enduring gem is pure Todd Terje: textured, warm and swelling, with a gleaming melody and an intangible undercurrent of humor.
- Rihanna feat. Calvin Harris “We Found Love” (2012)
- Avicii, “Levels” (2011) Avicii was EDM, with his 2011 breakout single "Levels" defining the sound of the genre and the then 21 year old Swedish producer defining the ethos, lifestyle and paycheck potential of top artists in this world.
- Disclosure feat. Sam Smith, “Latch” (2012)
- The Other Side by SZA, Justin Timberlake.
- Dance Again by Selena Gomez.
- Stupid Love by Lady Gaga.
- Toosie Slide by Drake.
- Darude "Sandstorm" Please tell me that this isn't the best pump up song to ever exist. - Morgan Baila.
- Robyn "Dancing On My Own" From the intro with those thumping beats until the last second, this is your song to dance like no one is watching to. - Courtney E. Smith.
- Silk City & Dua Lipa "Electricity" Do your best Flashdance impression to this one. - Courtney E. Smith.
- Janelle Monáe feat. Zoë Kravitz "Screwed" Sure we're all screwed in this hellscape apocalypse. Let's dance! - Courtney E. Smith.
- “Like a Prayer” by Madonna. A truly great party has to have drama, and who better to provide this than the Queen of Pop, Madonna. Indeed, there was drama around “Like a Prayer” even before the single came out in 1989—remember that Pepsi ad campaign?
- “Gonna Make You Sweat” by C+C Music Factory. “Everybody, dance now!” So goes the song’s yelled refrain, and we’ll wager you’ll have a hard time not shaking what your mama gave you when the beat kicks in.
- “1999” by Prince. “If you didn’t come to party, don’t bother knockin’ on my door,” the diminutive Minneapolis genius declared in one of the earliest blockbuster hits of his purple reign.
- "Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It" by Beyoncé. If you weren't already a member of the Beyhive, this one surely got you. It's an anthem for single ladies everywhere but an infectious dance number for all.You can't resist that chorus or trying your hand (or feet) at those signature dance moves.
- Hey Ya’ – Outkast. It’s official. The ‘party-o-meter’ has spoken, and ‘Hey Ya!’ is Time Out’s top tune. Why? Just try not dancing to this song when it comes on.
- Don't Stop ’Til You Get Enough’ – Michael Jackson. We’re not entirely convinced MJ himself quite knew what enough was; otherwise he might have stopped, eh?
- All Night Long (All Night)’ – Lionel Richie. Imagine going to a party with Lionel Richie and touching him on the shoulder and asking, 'Hey Lionel, I just wondered how long are we gonna be here?'
- Everywhere’ – Fleetwood Mac. You know when you wake up at a festival and there’s that drip of moisture running down the wall of your tent onto your head?
- Gloria Gaynor - "Never Can Say Goodbye" (1974) Clifton Davis, part of Motown's team of songwriters, wrote "Never Can Say Goodbye," and it was first recorded by the Jackson 5 in 1970.
- Bee Gees - "You Should Be Dancing" (1976) The three #1 pop hit songs that the Bee Gees wrote and recorded specifically for the soundtrack for the hit film Saturday Night Fever helped bring disco squarely into the pop mainstream.
- Vicki Sue Robinson - "Turn the Beat Around" (1976) Vicki Sue Robinson's early performing career consisted of being mostly a bit player in Broadway shows and films.
- Thelma Houston - "Don't Leave Me This Way" (1977) Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes first recorded "Don't Leave Me This Way." Legendary Philadelphia soul team Kenneth Gamble and Leon Huff co-wrote the song, and it appeared on the 1975 Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes album Wake Up Everybody.
