Best Dance Songs of the 90s

The Top Ten

1 Black or White - Michael Jackson

I think this will work

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

2 Jam - Michael Jackson

Jam and black or white are awesome - Ajkloth

3 Remember The Time - Michael Jackson

This is a great song

4 Livin' la Vida Loca - Ricky Martin

This is a great dance song...

5 Who is It - Michael Jackson

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

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

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

6 Beautiful Life - Ace of Base

It made me smile then & it makes me smile now

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 U Can't Touch This - MC Hammer

Best song ever

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

Class

His music hit me so hard make me say oh my lord thank you for blassed him <3
You can't touch this

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 Barbie Girl - Aqua

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

13 Around the World (La La La) - ATC
14 All That She Wants - Ace of Base
15 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:

16 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.

This song is a masterpiece. I love MJ, but none of his songs can be compared to Madonna's Vogue! Legendary.

19 Butterfly - Smile.dk
20 We Like to Party - The Vengaboys
21 Boom Boom Boom Boom - The Vengaboys
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!

25 Ice Ice Baby - Vanilla Ice

This should be in top 30

26 Call Me - Le Click
27 Twilight Zone - 2 Unlimited

38 Waiting for Tonight - Jennifer Lopez

It's - easily - the greatest house song ever. How this masterpiece is only at the 55th position?

41 The Real Thing - 2 Unlimited
42 I Like to Move It - Reel 2 Real
43 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.
