The Top TenXW
LUV the dance moves, I could do this for HOURS, and be the last one dancing, I could do this moves FAST AND HARD, with my wet hair dangling around like MJ - SmoothCriminal
Being a child of the 80's there were many great dance songs, but Smooth Criminal would have to been the best. - Luvumore4evaMJ
oh... what a dance by michael jackson. no one can defeat him. MJ forever
My favorite Michael Jackson song of all time. The anti gravity lean he does in the video was out of sight.V18 Comments
I just want to let everyone know that he is the king and that there will never be anyone compare to him... RIP. AND, HE WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN!
Pretty equal to Smooth Criminal and Thriller... hard to decide this one... love them all... - love4mjj
I'm not a big Jackson fan but remember people this is the dance catagory... The song has to be a good song to dance to. Most songs on this list are not good dance songs.
I dance to it all the TIME - ilovepizza123467788V2 Comments
DEFINITELY my favorite pop song from the 80s. Great beat, lyrics, and even music video. That keyboard and chorus will forever be burned into my brain.
Catchy, even the music video was nice.
The AWESOME rhythm and beat of this song make you move involuntarily, so you might as well get up and dance to it...LOL! - fleurdemimi
I can't help myselp but dance every time I hear any MJ dance song... thank you MJ for making my teenage life happier.
. By the time I've heard this song, I can't help but groove and move
This is the most catchy song of the 80's..V3 Comments
I love this song even though I'm a kin in 2013V3 Comments
When it comes to dancing, nor Billie Jean nor Take on Me can compete with the ever-popular rhythm of Sweet Dreams.
Sweet dreams are made of these who am I to disagree. - happyhappyjoyjoyV1 Comment
Every time I hear this song I feel like GETTING INTO THE GROOVE! IT CAN MAKE ANYONE GET INTO THE GROOVE. I'M DANCING EVEN NOW JUST THINKING OF THE SONG!
Classic dance song! This one still holds up today. They still play this one in clubs and it still gets everyone out on the dancefloor.
Every time I hear this song all I wanna do its DANCE! I get into the groove!
I can't stop dancing when I listen to thisV2 Comments
Damn right, this song is the Magna Carta of Alternative Dance! The anthem of this little raver! - theOpinionatedOne
New Order bounced the 80's dance wave... got the boyz on the floor (rather than around it)
Unlike the other songs on this list, this one is actually a dance song. Any publication worth its salt has this as No. 1.
This one has that demon dance beat you know ya can't resist!V2 Comments
there is no one in this planet that doesn't know the thriller dance... I mean I wasn't even born when it came out, but I know it very well. - smile4-life
I�'m so surprise that Thriller is in this place of the list when all we know that this is the song of the century and there�'s no doubt about it!
