Take a look at the below list of Top 10 Best Dance Songs of All Time till 2017.

Regardless, this is one list that will refresh your memory to the top 10 best dance songs of all time.
List of top 10 Dance songs of all time till 2017
10. ‘One More Time’ by Daft Punk
Daft Punk’s “One More Time”, coming out in 2000, is the hands down winner of this poll. This shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone who is familiar with this French DJ duo, whether it be from a concert or in a club where the song is blasted over the sound system. The track can be best described as a hyper-concentrated burst of euphoria set to a pounding beat. This one will never fail to get the dance crowd going whenever it comes on.
9. ‘Blue Monday’ by New Order
If you have been to a dance club in the UK recently, you have probably heard New Order’s 1983 hit “Blue Monday”. Not only did it become immensely popular in those clubs, but that single hit is the top selling 12-inch single in history. Just as is the case with so many other hits, ‘Blue Monday’ has been remixed, remade, and re just about everything else, but the original version remains as popular as ever.
8. ‘Twist and Shout’ by The Beatles
It would seem almost sacrilegious to keep such an iconic group as the Beatles away from practically any group, regardless of how you had to adjust the criteria to get them there. Fortunately, the Fab Four is a natural on a list such as this for their hit ‘Twist and Shout’. Little did anyone know this early in their career that they would reach the heights they did. If you are looking for a way to instantly fill a dance floor, playing this rock icon will do the job. Also Read : Latest English Songs
7. ‘D.A.N.C.E.’ by Justice
There’s a good chance that when the members of Justice were born, Michael Jackson was already going strong, but just as a tribute to the King of Pop, this recent group put together this song, which seems to be one destined to become a classic. Perhaps most interesting of all is that despite this being a tribute to Jackson and his musical legacy, this one outpaced him on this list. This is one of the Top 10 Best Dance Songs of All Time till 2017.
6. ‘Vogue’ by Madonna
Just as is the case for Michael Jackson, Madonna falls on this chart simply because she has so many hits to her name and has so much good competition. Despite this, hits such as ‘Vogue’ deserves a mention. Still, if you could only use one Madonna hit, “Vogue” would be among the top choices. Besides being one of her signature hits, the wide variety of excellent videos that she has made for this song, not to mention the choreography for so many of them makes this entry on the list a must.
5. The Isley Brothers, ‘Shout’
When the Isley Brothers‘ single “Shout” was originally released in 1959, it didn’t make much of an impact on the pop charts, but since then it has enjoyed a reintroduction with use in such venues as the 1978 classic, Animal House and others. And what would a wedding reception or a sporting event be without it? The song has been reinvented many times since 1959, but the raw energy and simplicity of the original Isleys’ version still shines through.
4. ‘Thriller’ by Michael Jackson
Michael Jackson, the King of Pop, was responsible for creating some of the biggest dance hits of all time but his lower placement on this list is attributed in great part to vote-splitting with other acts. He was best known for his moonwalk steps to “Billie Jean,” but the highest number of votes was for “Thriller,” probably because it’s iconic video features the memorable choreography of Jackson as well as everyone else.
3. ‘Groove Is In the Heart’ by Deee-Lite
What do you get when you seamlessly combine funk, disco, hip-hop and house music? The answer is, apparently, ‘Groove Is In the Heart’ by Deee-Lite, who created this anthem to the good times to become one of the most joyful songs of the early 90’s. There’s something about this song, with its hard beat and accompanying instrumentals and voices that epitomize the disco era and leaves everyone having a good time in the process.
2. ‘Le Freak’ by Chic
Originally intended to be a celebration of Studio 54, the mecca of the disco scene, it was inspired by Chic band members Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards. the story goes that they were denied entry into the legendary club on New Year’s Eve of 1977, but even with an invite from Grace Jones, they were turned away. Interestingly, the song has long outlived Studio 54, but it has not only held the honor of hitting number one on the Billboard 100 charts, but it has been there on three non-consecutive occasions.
1. ‘Stayin’ Alive’ by The Bee Gees
What would the disco era of the 70’s be without the Bee Gees, and specifically the hit song, ‘Stayin’ Alive’? There probably isn’t a person alive today who doesn’t still remember the lyrics from that iconic song, not to mention the polyester shirts and tight pants of the three brothers Gibb. Interestingly, the song was intended to only be the opening sequence of the Saturday Night Fever movie, but after listeners flooded radio stations with requests for the tune did it come out after it was shown as the trailer of the movie.
