The Top Ten

Billie Jean - Michael Jackson
Bass line in perfection! Instantly want to start dancing the routine of, moonwalking everywhere and anywhere! Just Awesome!
The best, I dance to MJ nearly everyday! He was a genius, he lives on in my heart in 100's of millions of others, I don't think there will be another like him, closest yet is Justin Timberlake or Chris Brown oh and I can't forget Usher, Love you MJ
I haven't heard of anyone hating this amazing song, if you do you're either deaf or dumb. Its the best bass line ever written

2Round 'N' Round - Menowin

Nice breezy summersong! I love it!

3Hung Up - Madonna
It's The Best Dance Song Of The Decade: "Hung Up" reached number one in 44 countries, it currently holds the record of reaching the number 1 position in the most countries for a single. "Hung Up" became first Madonna's number one on the Latin American chart and the only U.S. artist to reach number one.
Madonna's Hung Up definetely deserves the #1 spot. I mean, this song can make even geeks and nerds and shy guys dance! And I mean it!
Everytime I listen to this song I feel like dancing my feet away. Love you, Madonna!
