100 Great Dance Music Videos from the 2000s (#85-#81)

The following 100 dance music videos of the 2000s are in absolutely no way a comprehensive representation of all the great club hits of the decade. Most club hits did not have music videos, or the video does not feature the dance mix. Also, this is not a critic's list. It's all in fun and there are plenty of cheesy videos on the list. But hopefully the casual pop music fan may be introduced to some of the music they missed, and the card-carrying members of the club community can experience some guilty pleasures and a little nostalgia.

Review of #100-#86:

#100 Peaches- "Set It Off"
#99 Simain Mobile Disco- "Hustler"
#98 The Prodigy- "Omen"
#97 Deep Dish- "Flashdance"

Josh Abrahams and Amiel Daemion hit with "Addicted to Bass" in 1998 in their native Australia, but changed their name to Puretone for the international release as to not be confused with the music producer, Josh Abraham. In 2002, the single was an international hit, reaching #2 on the UK Singles Chart and #1 on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play Chart.

Cool fact: Josh Abrahams co-produced Baz Luhrman's 1998 hit, "Everybody's Free (to Wear Sunscreen)" and the soundtrack to the 2001 film, Moulin Rouge
