1. Uptown Funk by Mark Ronson featuring Bruno Mars

Genre Funk pop, soul, boogie
Year Released 2015
Album Uptown Special

Bruno Mars seems like a favorite of DJ, songwriter, and record producer Mark Ronson. The pair had worked together on three tracks in Mars’s second studio album Unorthodox Jukebox before teaming up again for “Uptown Funk.” Despite their previous golden working relationship, though, the pair reportedly went through a lot to perfect the song. The result, however, speaks for itself. From its opening line, “Uptown Funk” delivers a fresh hook grounded on Mars’ powerful vocals and undeniable swagger. Mars also gets to show off his dancing shoes in the music video, inspiring listeners to get up and groove with him, despite yelling, “don’t believe me, just watch.”

2. Sugar by Maroon 5

Genre Disco, funk-pop, soul
Year Released 2014
Album V

“Sugar” by Maroon 5 is more contemporary pop than rock, with an intoxicating mix of disco, funk, and soul setting up the song’s addictive groove. The accompanying music video presents a very fun scenario of dancing to the song at a friend’s wedding reception. And while that sounds like an event to remember, especially if Maroon 5 themselves are in attendance, it is easy to enjoy the track’s slick guitars and synth-heavy stirrings, amped up by Adam Levine’s distinctly sultry, high-range crooning. Wedding or no wedding, “Sugar” is a sweet and playful invitation to party and dance the night away.

3. As Long As You Love Me by Backstreet Boys

Genre Pop
Year Released 1997
Album Backstreet’s Back

“As Long As You Love Me” by the Backstreet Boys has long ascended to karaoke legend status. This song is from their album “Backstreet’s Back,” which is fun and almost campy in the way the best boy band ditties of the late 1990s to early 2000s are. The lyrics promise unconditional, everlasting love, interspersed with solid bass drops and a catchy piano track.

The track is easy to sing along to, with earworm lyrics delivered by the boys’ faultless harmonies, and is a joy to dance to, whether you are following the official music video choreography or just jiving to your own version of single-single, double-double arm gestures.

4. The Way You Make Me Feel by Michael Jackson

Genre Dance-pop, R&B
Year Released 1987
Album Bad

From the wide and varied discography of smash hits from none other than the King of Pop, “The Way You Make Me Feel” should be at the top of the rankings of Michael Jackson songs that make you want to dance. Its slick, doo-wop style beats make it a worthy contender, with special props to how the song was used for a ballet dance number in the 2000 movie “Center Stage.” The song’s classic R&B stirrings make it a versatile track. You can be a ballet dancer brightening up an otherwise somber number, or just anyone who needs a cool beat for dancing with your friends.

5. Like I Love You by Justin Timberlake

Genre R&B, soul
Year Released 2002
Album Justified

Since NSYNC, Justin Timberlake has proven himself to be his own brand of hit-maker, having a slew of award-winning and best-selling albums under his belt. It’s an impressive discography, and there are a lot of dance tracks to choose from, but there is something to be said about the OG. “Like I Love You” from his debut album “Justified” was a promise of good things right off the bat. Produced by the Neptunes, the song is bursting with funk rhythm, and heavy bass drops married with spry guitar riffs, a solid departure from the man’s boy band past. The opening strums with Justin’s vocals are made to get your soles tapping, guaranteed.

Genre Pop, Eurodisco
Year Released 1976
Album Arrival

Whether you learned about the Swedish supergroup ABBA because you grew up listening to their music or from watching the “Mamma Mia” movies, you would surely have heard and loved the track “Dancing Queen.” It is the kind of song that, when the opening notes play, people in the room could not help but get up and fall into a coordinated routine. The song is unabashedly disco and dance-pop in its musicality, and band member Agnetha Fältskog reportedly professed to know it would be a hit. After decades of garnering awards and making its mark in pop culture with its euphoric swag, the song has indeed proven itself royalty.

7. Lady Marmalade by Christina Aguilera, Lil’ Kim, Mya, Pink

Genre Soul, disco
Year Released 2001
Album Moulin Rouge Original Soundtrack

The song “Lady Marmalade” is such a quintessential, soulful number that it has been recorded multiple times. From the first demo by disco group The Eleventh Hour, the song was then recorded by American all-female group Labelle in the 1970s, then covered by Italian pop star Sabrina. More current versions include the one performed by spunky girl group All Saints in 1998 and, more recently, by divas Christina Aguilera, Li’l Kim, Mya, and Pink. This 2001 version was recorded for the original soundtrack of the film “Moulin Rouge,” and it sounds like the women went all out, delivering sass, sexiness, and impressive vocal runs. Considered a naughtier descendant of the Labelle original, this “Lady Marmalade” version is a certified dance hit.

Following the gilded footsteps of her smash hits “Just Dance” and “Poker Face,” Gaga’s 2009 song “Bad Romance” comes with lyrics that explore the allure of unhealthy romantic relationships, something that the artist has personally experienced. As one might expect and love from any Gaga hit, the song’s musicality shows off the best outcome of an experiment that only Gaga can pull off. It starts off with eerie harpsichords, catches you with a hook, and gets you dancing to the tune of a bad romance.

9. Call Me Maybe by Carly Rae Jepsen

Genre Pop
Year Released 2011

A great song from Carly Rae’s first international album, “Call Me Maybe,” is a certified hit, garnering attention and even Grammy nominations for the then-newbie artist. The song reportedly evolved from a folksy tune to pure, unadulterated pop, with lyrics crying about a crush that is hopefully not one-sided. The song has been covered by artists such as Lil Wayne and Cody Simpson, even making it to a performance in the musical TV series “Glee.” Give it one listen, and it’s easy to get why it is such a fun, snappy pop song that’s great to dance to.

Artist PSY may not come from the usual boy group mold, but he burst through the world stage in his dark glasses and flashy suits, bringing his unique musicality and spunk with the song “Gangnam Style.” Powered by a punching beat and English lyrics that demand repeating, PSY got everyone from Britney Spears to Ellen DeGeneres horse-galloping to the smash dance hit.

Grounded in the dance-pop genre that the girls do so well and laced with Motown soul, the song is said to tell of the group’s woes of being overworked by their management, a cost of their success. Despite this message, the song refuses to be down, and gloomy, barrelling in with a hoppy intro riff that gets feet tapping, matched by the girls’ boundless energy, and perfectly rounded up with sassy yet easy-to-follow choreography.

12. Sometimes by Britney Spears

Genre Can be multiple genres
Year Released 1999
Album …Baby One More Time

Britney Spears is a legend in dance pop, all the way from her smashing debut and decades on until now, with a massive discography from which to choose your dancing tune. “Sometimes” from her debut album “…Baby One More Time” is a prime example of bubblegum pop at its finest. It is joyful, it is sweet, and it is easy to dance and sing along to. The lyrics tell the story of a girl heartbroken and unsure of a guy’s affections, contrasted by the song’s flowing rhythm and light synths. Like the early Britney hits, “Sometimes” is very much a girl-next-door soundtrack, great for dancing around with your girlfriends.

It’s always a good idea to start things off with a bit of “funk and soul,” and the boys of BTS were not overreaching when they said it.

The song opens with a flawless falsetto and a head-bopping beat, grounded by distinct handclaps and synths and flowing to a marching rhythm.

A stellar pick for dancing in the summer rain and chasing the blues away, “Happy” is one of Pharrell’s best and most enduring smash hits.

Genre R&B, dance, funk

It’s been said once, and it’s been said a million times since this song debuted and dominated charts in 2001, but nobody was ready for this jelly. “Bootylicious” by the supreme queens of Destiny’s Child was a cultural reset. Everything in the song was iconic, from “can you handle this?” at the beginning of the track, to the earworm chorus, to the dance harking to Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean.” The song was so amazing that the word “bootylicious”’ was added to the Oxford English Dictionary. Although the fierce women of Destiny’s Child have since parted ways, fans are grateful to have “Bootylicious” as an impeccable part of the group’s legacy.

Known for its blaring horns that are perfect for the queen’s powerful sashay and a rap verse and adlibs performed by her then future husband Jay-Z, “Crazy In Love” was a chart-topper right off the bat. Its compelling mix of hip hop, soul, R&B, and Beyoncé’s dancing and vocals made sure the song was popular with music fans and critics alike.

Album 1989

A quintessential dance anthem from no less than Taylor Swift, “Shake It Off” is like your own personal, super bubbly, much-needed cheerleader. The happy beats open the song, leading to Miss Swift’s fully self-aware lyrics, and from there comes the bridge that reminds you that everything’s gonna be alright. By the time you get to the chorus, the experience is jump-up-and-down, toss-your-head cathartic. You should have long been on your feet by then, dancing to your beat and shouting back at Taylor as she tells you to just shake it off. It’s a great song to decompress and power yourself up for another day.

Drag queens know a thing or two about performing and getting their audience pumped up, and who else serves a great dance track but the queen herself? “American” is one of the many hit songs featured in RuPaul’s Drag Race. RuPaul has long been serving wake-you-up beats that will get you partying like a drag queen, and her song with the Season 10 girls is no exception. Like most things RuPaul does, the song is a call to love and action, just as much as it is catchy. This earworm will get you tapping your heels and swinging your sequins from the first beat, bopping your head to the snappy chorus.

The lead single, “As It Was,” is a great way to tell this story. With the joyful synths, boppy beats, and Harry Styles’ earnest vocals, the track can take you dancing both ways, either as closer to help wind down a stressful day or as a morning jive to get you alive and pumped up for an otherwise gloomy Monday. The song is a great break from Harry’s previous angst-ridden hits, a synth-pop number made for the repeat button, and super chill dancing.

Album =

The lead single from the much-awaited album “=” ushers in an era of electronic dance music for acclaimed singer and songwriter Ed Sheeran. “Bad Habits” is an interesting departure from his heart-rending, tear-jerker song origins. While his usual acoustic numbers may get you swaying with your woes and tears, “Bad Habits” is a tune fit for clubbing, with bass drops and power synths meant to kick things into gear. Watch out for the tune while on the dance floor or play it with the volume turned up on your car stereo. Either way, Mr. Sheeran showed up with his usual thoughtful lyrics paired with a dance-worthy beat.

“STAY” is The Kid LAROI’s first chart-topping song, achieving the number 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100, and from the first listen, it is not difficult to understand why. Written and performed by LAROI and Justin Bieber (who himself is not a newbie to dance anthems), the song starts off strong and fast, dropping beats with a sultry mix of piano, drums, and synths. LAROI and Bieber play off masterfully with each other’s vocals, with lyrics that promise true love if you pay close attention. The result is a modern hit that’s easy and fun to dance to.

22. I Love It by Icona Pop featuring Charli XCX

Genre Electropop, dance-pop
Year Released 2012
Album Icona Pop

There is a dance you can choreograph, and there is a dance where you throw all pretenses away and just jump up and down to it. “I Love It” by Swedish duo Icona Pop featuring Charli XCX is a great example of the latter. From the start, the lyrics are an invitation to let it out and let it all go, and when you reach the chorus, you are invited to scream out, “I don’t care, I love it!” By that time, you should already be banging your head to the pop song. The song sounds perfectly irreverent and rebellious, awesome for dancing to your beat.

23. You Only Live Once by the Strokes

Genre Garage rock, post-punk revival
Year Released 2005
Album First Impressions of Earth

There’s nothing like rock music and how it can get people up and dancing to their divergent beat, especially when you drop some good old punk and garage rock mix. The Strokes are masters of the genre, and their lethal hit “You Only Live Once” is armed with drum beats and electric guitar riffs made to get shoulders jiving and soles thumping. Julian Casablancas’ raspy voice starts with an almost lazy, seductive crooning until he amps it up to growls and snarls. He may be singing, “oh, don’t, don’t, don’t get up,” but with those riffs, that’s the only thing to do.

24. Dancing Shoes by Arctic Monkeys

Genre Garage rock, post-punk revival, Brit pop
Year Released 2006
Album Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not

The title of the song says it all. The much acclaimed, best-selling debut album of the Sheffield boys of Arctic Monkeys offers a plethora of bold tunes, and “Dancing Shoes” is no exception. Vocalist Alex Turner starts the song off strong with a drum beat that builds and builds. When the chorus hits and the electric guitars join the parade, the only recourse is for you to jump and dance and flail around. The song is perfect for mosh pits in music festivals or in the privacy of your living room while you dance the frustrations and sorrows of a long day away.

25. Me & You by HONNE

Genre Dance-pop, synth pop
Year Released 2018
Album Love Me / Love Me Not

The alternative and indie rock duo HONNE probably didn’t come out thinking they are serving hits that are perfect for choreography, but they were in for a surprise when the South Korean collective Intro Dance Studios danced to their single “Day 1”. The result is a collaboration for the music video for “Me & You”. Like most of HONNE’s discography, “Me & You” is a fun, happy, polished beat, showing off the sunshine tunes that the duo does so well. HONNE writes about pining and loss too, but songs like “Me & You” make you feel like heartbreak doesn’t exist, with promises that the rest of the days would be great with just me and you.

26. (I’ve Had) The Time of My Life by Bill Medley, Jennifer Warnes

Genre Soft rock
Year Released 1987
Album Dirty Dancing: The Original Soundtrack from the Motion Picture

We can’t talk about dancing without mentioning “Dirty Dancing,” and we mean the 1987 movie, of course. The soft rock anthem “(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life” plays in the movie’s iconic scene. Anyone who has seen it would have been captivated by the opening lines of crooner Bill Medley, and by the time Jennifer Warnes sings, there would be guaranteed swooning. Even without the movie experience and Patrick Swayze lifting you and turning you around in a winning, choreographed number, the sexy beats and the distinct bass drops would get you on your feet and away from the corner where you don’t deserve to be. The movie and the song are both timeless, whether you are dancing in your bedroom or strutting in full regalia across a dance floor.

27. Unchained Melody by the Righteous Brothers

Genre Pop, country
Year Released 1965
Album Just Once In My Life

Another important milestone in Patrick Swayze’s territory is none other than one of the best urban fantasy love stories ever made. The “Ghost” soundtrack is as classic as the movie it was made for and as legendary as that pottery love scene. If you’ve watched that scene and imagined yourself dancing and swaying with your not-so-ghostly partner, then yes, why don’t you? Spectral appearances and potter’s clay are optional. The smooth crooning of the Righteous Brothers is the perfect mix of suave seduction, romantic questions, and bold promises of eternal love, sure to get you in the mood for a nighttime swing.

Year Released Parallel Lines
Album 1978

The band Blondie is up there among rock royalty, and their New Wave sounds make for great dance songs. The track “One Way Or Another” is one such hit. Known for that iconic guitar riff and Debbie Harry’s aggressive vocals and big energy to match the creepy lyrics, Ms. Harry reportedly wrote the song inspired by her experience with an ex-boyfriend turned stalker. The song was also used in a pivotal scene in the 2000 cult favorite film “Coyote Ugly,” with Piper Perabo dancing to it on top of a bar to calm a rowdy crowd. Now that’s an idea. Overall, I really like this song and it’s definitely one of those songs that will make you dance even if you don’t want to.
