The Top Ten

Black or White - Michael Jackson
Love this song! It's amazing how incredibly talented Michael was... RIP! We'll always remember you
A great dance song and a profound message, too!


Such a hard choice because so many on this list were awesome! But from what I recall this song had the most impact on me at the time.

You can't touch this
Easily should be number one, be back in that era NOO this song was the most talked about and jammed to. Not Michael jackson, no disrespect

6Vogue - Madonna
This great song is definitely the greatest dance song of 90's. Honestly, the greatest song by a female in the 90's, what a masterpiece it was in 1990. Song had a fantastic video clip, and who can forget wonderful MTV VMA show?
"Vogue" was the most popular Dance track of the 90's. It topped many countries and became classic of Dance/Pop


With 42 #1 dance hits under her belt (the most of any artist in history), I think it is safe to say that Madonna is the King and Queen of the Dancefloor. And this is one of her most-iconic songs ever.

Oh god I love this song it such a catchy beat and you fall in love with it whenever you hear it and it is just a great song but it gets stuck in your head
Definitely should be in the top 5, It has such a catchy rhythm and a great beat. Plus it was a hit when it came out. Go listen to it and you'll see what I mean
Crazy voting. Everyone of the songs from night at the roxbury should be in the top ten...

20Insomnia - Faithless

No-one knows this song by its name but I guarantee that when it comes on everyone would recognize it and realise how amazing the whole song is. The main tune gives me shivers.

21Return of the Mack - Mark Morrison

22Everybody - Backstreet Boys

Definitely one of their most dancey-pop songs ever! I still hope at parties and such that, along with the mix of LMFAO, Chris Brown, J. Lo, that this song would somehow "accidently" slip in! Sad, foolish dream. But totally valid.
