If you’re like me, you love a good dance party. And that means you’re always on the lookout for the next great dance song. Sure, there are new songs coming out every year, and it doesn’t take social media monitoring to see how popular they are. But the truth is, some of the best dance party songs came out a long, long time ago. If you’re wondering what songs you should play for your next dance party, I have what you’re looking for.
Don’t look at the Billboard Hot 100 Chart to see what the best dance songs are going to be. You might find one or two good ones, but the greatest dance songs are from the 80’s and 90’s.
Top Dance Songs of 2017
Dance with Somebody
This hit by Whitney Houston is one of the catchiest dance party songs ever. Younger generations may not recognize it, but it doesn’t matter. “Dance with Somebody” was released in 1987 and was Houston’s biggest hit until she released “I Will Always Love You” 5 years later. It can be found on Spotify, iTunes, or even YouTube. Be sure to add this Whitney Houston hit to your next party playlist. This one is great for a wedding reception or for any occasion.
Anything Can Happen
This hit by Ellie Goulding was released in 2012, and has over 66 million views on YouTube! As you can tell from social media monitoring, it’s one of Goulding’s most popular songs. This one’s been a staple at the past few dance parties I’ve gone to. It’s light, upbeat, and the perfect song to help you find that special someone. It was released on her album Delirium, and can be found on all the major music streaming services.
This song, by Jai Wolf, is much more unique than the other two. It has a beat that gives it a unique, cultural vibe that should inspire some unique dance moves out there on the dance floor.
Love on Top
This Beyonce hit from 2011 is another one of the best dance songs out there. For crowds who want songs that are a little more modern and popular for social media monitoring, go with this one. It’s upbeat and extremely catchy. I’m not even a Beyonce fan and I love this song!
These are just a few of the most popular dance songs in 2017, and any of them would be a fine addition to your playlist, whether you’re dancing at a wedding reception or in the comfort of your living room!
