Top Ten Songs with "Dancing" in the Title

I'm just jumping into this one, hopefully I can come up with ten.

The Top Ten

1 Dancing In the Moonlight - King Harvest

Really like this one. We'll see how it holds up. Great harmony - Ned964

2 Dancing Queen - ABBA

Probably the most popular song here. - Ned964

3 Dancing In the Dark - Bruce Springsteen

An ok Springsteen song. The video supplied Courtney Cox with her big break. - Ned964

4 You Should Be Dancing - Bee Gees

Big hit for the Bee Gees - Ned964

5 Dancing in the Street - Martha Reeves & the Vandellas

I meant to vote for this but the site insisted I vote for Bruce Springsteen instead. Go figure. - Britgirl

6 Dancing Machine - Jackson 5

Standard Jackson 5 - Ned964

7 Dancing on the Ceiling - Lionel Richie

One of many Lionel Ritchie hits after his break from the Commodores - Ned964

8 Dancing with Myself - Billy Idol

Noo...This was an accidental vote! I don't even know the song (even though I added it) - Britgirl

9 You Make Me Feel Like Dancing - Leo Sayer

Big 70's pop hit - Ned964

No 70's pop hit, 1976

10 Dancing with Tears in My Eyes - Ultravox

The Contenders

11 Shall We Dance - Fred Astaire

Whats not lame is this song. Nothing wrong with being dated, it's often the best stuff. I will admit I only know this vaguely, but the era you mentioned is beautiful. The simple album cover makes me think of film noir, dating your best gal, and as much as I know of them, Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. - Ned964

Some good choices here. I know this is somewhat dated but it's a lovely song from such a beautiful era.
Oops! Just realised it has "dance" instead of "dancing" - apologies. It may not be submitted but it's still a lovely song. - Britgirl

12 Dancing with the Moonlit Knight - Genesis
13 Come Dancing - The Kinks

Haha I was looking at Rumba in Black painting by Jack Vettriano and your comment to it and then I spotted this song title which immediately reminded me of it. For the life of me I can't think why... - Britgirl

14 Dancing with Tears in My Eyes - Avantasia

Ultravox metal-ized cover - Metal_Treasure

15 Dancing Days - Led Zeppelin
16 I Wanna Dance with Somebody - Whitney Houston

This should be at least in the top ten! It even beats Dancing Machine by Jackson 5. It is so catchy!.!.!

17 Swayin' to the Music (Slow Dancin') - Johnny Rivers
18 Keep on Dancing - The Gentrys
19 Dancing in the Moonlight - Toploader
20 Dancing Your Memory Away - Tammy Wynette
21 Dance with Me - Orleans
22 Dancin' in the Key of Life - Steve Arrington
23 The Politics of Dancing - Re-Flex
24 Heart Keeps Dancing - James Gruntz
25 Dancing Shoes - The Score
26 Let's Dance - David Bowie
27 Dancing on My Own - Calum Scott
28 Domino Dancing - Pet Shop Boys
29 Dancing With Mr. D - The Rolling Stones

The "Mr. D" in the song is apparently supposed to be death. I guess that's why it sounds so dark. - Gg2000

30 John, I'm Only Dancing - David Bowie

One of his earlier songs. There are three different versions out there! - Gg2000
