Best Dance Songs of the 90s


The Top Ten

1 Black or White - Michael Jackson

Love this song! It's amazing how incredibly talented Michael was... RIP! We'll always remember you

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. - Luvumore4evaMJ

A great dance song and a profound message, too! - fleurdemimi

I think this will work

Jam and black or white are awesome - Ajkloth

3 Remember The Time - Michael Jackson

This is a great song

4 Who is It - Michael Jackson

I love all Michael Jackson's songs!
But I love the story of this video and the beat of this song!
Simply dramatic!
love it! - MJstimemachine

Damn, Michael Jackson took the top four spots. He ruled the '80s and continued to kill it in the '90s. - Eddiej

Um... how is this a dance song? Sure, it's a awesome song, but it's too depressing to be regarded as a "Dance-Song". - FlakyCuddles43

5 Livin' la Vida Loca - Ricky Martin

This is a great dance song...

6 Barbie Girl - Aqua

Everyone still even know that song. I bet they can dance to this.

7 Be My Lover - La Bouche

Nice voice forever in 2011 still. This song is still plying in Radio in U.S. and Europe. Best dance song from 1995 Europe and 1996 U.S. and Australia. Nobody don't sing this song better than Melanie

8 Beautiful Life - Ace of Base

It made me smile then & it makes me smile now

9 Blue (Da Ba Dee) - Eiffel 65

Ultra dance hit of the 90's and Eiffel 65 - MatrixGuy

10 Believe - Cher

it was such a massive hit! on the parts without the vocoder, which are the chorus and bridge, her voice sounds incredible! not bad for a 52 year old - dananana

The Contenders

11 Wannabe - Spice Girls
12 U Can't Touch This - MC Hammer

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

Best song ever

You can't touch this

13 Around the World (La La La) - ATC
14 Around the World - Daft Punk

Yeah but how

These guys are lyrical poets! They are even more lyrical than Vanilla Ice! The lyrics are just so meaningful, they have a lot of meaning to them. Look at these lyrics right here:

15 All That She Wants - Ace of Base
16 Butterfly -
17 We Like to Party - The Vengaboys
18 Boom Boom Boom Boom - The Vengaboys
19 Let's Get Loud - Jennifer Lopez

You can dance to this easily!

I love this song whenever I hear this song it makes me to just sing and dance..I sang this a few times 😂

20 Unbelievable - Emf
21 Vogue - 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 - Irina2932

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.

How is this so low? WatchMojo declared it best! Show it some love! Lucky Stars unite!

22 Emotions - Mariah Carey
23 Everybody - 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.

Backstreet are amazing in every way!

24 Jump Around - House of Pain
25 Beautiful Stranger - Madonna
26 Call Me - Le Click
27 Insomnia - 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.

Simply an amazing song!

28 Man! I Feel Like a Woman! - Shania Twain

Great song for the gals

29 Jumpin', Jumpin' - Destiny's Child
30 Ray of Light - Madonna
31 Diva - Dana International

One of the greatest dance anthems ever in Eurovision

32 Space Invaders - Hit'n'hide
33 This is How We Do It - Montell Jordan
34 No Limit - 2 Unlimited
35 Born Slippy - Underworld
36 What Is Love? - Haddaway

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...

This song even inspired a movie
