Best Songs to Get You on the Dance Floor

The Top Ten

1 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

Seriously, does anybody think this song really need some comment explaining why it is the "best song to get you on the dance floor"? Its an old track and yet you continue to hear it everywhere because it is clearly the best!

Unmistakable Bass Line that just forces you to dance, or at least tap to the beat - IIBK

4 Hung 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!

Beats Thriller any day! Lucky Stars unite and let's get this to the top!

15 I Wanna Dance with Somebody - Whitney Houston

SO GOOD. Whitney is the queen, and this song always makes me happy and want to get out there dancing!

I was asked to pick a song that I would want to dance to at my nephew's upcoming wedding. I want to pick this one because I do want to dance with somebody who loves me. I am still longing for that somebody. I think this song is a great song to get me out there on the dance floor and allow me to dance to my fantasy.

Wow she was amazing, I am amazed at how that song could make anyone want to dance. She was so amazing and absolutely mesmerising to watch. Were going to miss her creation of songs. I only wish she could make more!

It is marvellous.
