The '90s were THE decade for bangers that still pack dance floors today. We're talking iconic tracks that went beyond mere music. They were the anthems of our youth, defining a generation like no other.

Whether you were living the dream during those years or you're just getting into the magic of the '90s, there's no doubt that this era left an indelible imprint on the dance music landscape.
The Top Ten
1 Black or White - Michael Jackson

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.

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

When you see MJ's name on a list to vote, you can't control yourself, and your mouse goes automatically to vote for him.

2 Jam - Michael Jackson

Jam and Black or White are awesome.

3 Remember the Time - Michael Jackson
4 Who is It - Michael Jackson

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

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

5 Livin' la Vida Loca - Ricky Martin
6 Beautiful Life - Ace of Base

It made me smile then, and it makes me smile now.

7 Barbie Girl - Aqua

Everyone still knows that song. I bet they can dance to it.

8 Be My Lover - La Bouche

Nice voice, forever in 2011 still. This song is still playing on the radio in the U.S. and Europe. Best dance song from 1995 in Europe and 1996 in the U.S. and Australia. Nobody can sing this song better than Melanie.

9 Blue (Da Ba Dee) - Eiffel 65

Ultra dance hit of the '90s and Eiffel 65.

10 Believe - Cher

It was such a massive hit! In the parts without the vocoder, which are the chorus and bridge, her voice sounds incredible! Not bad for a 52-year-old.

The Contenders
11 Wannabe - Spice Girls

This should be number 1. This is the best dance song I've ever heard.

12 U Can't Touch This - MC Hammer

Easily should be number one. Back in that era, NO, this song was the most talked about and jammed to. Not Michael Jackson, no disrespect.

His music hit me so hard, it made me say, Oh my Lord, thank you for blessing him.

You can't touch this.

13 Around the World - Daft Punk
14 Around the World (La La La La La) - A Touch of Class
15 All That She Wants - Ace of Base
16 Vogue - Madonna

This great song is definitely the greatest dance song of the '90s. Honestly, it's the greatest song by a female in the '90s. What a masterpiece it was in 1990. The song had a fantastic video clip, and who can forget the wonderful MTV VMA show?

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.

"Vogue" was the most popular dance track of the '90s. It topped many countries and became a classic of Dance/Pop.

17 Let's Get Loud - Jennifer Lopez

I love this song. Whenever I hear this song, it makes me want to just sing and dance. I've sung this a few times.

18 Butterfly - Smile.Dk
19 We Like to Party - The Vengaboys
20 Boom Boom Boom Boom - The Vengaboys
21 Everybody (Backstreet's Back) - 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, this song would somehow "accidentally" slip in. It's a sad, foolish dream, but totally valid.

Backstreet Boys are amazing in every way!

22 Emotions - Mariah Carey
23 Unbelievable - Emf
24 Ray of Light - Madonna

Fresh, modern sound and surprisingly great vocals from Madonna. Love this song.

25 Jump Around - House of Pain
