Dance Monkey - Tones and I - 2019

Out of Australia, Tones and I's Dance Monkey is one of two recent releases on the list and it's an odd and unique sounding number, but definitely catchy and fun.

Notable lyric "And now I beg to see you dance just one more time"

Dancing with a Stranger - Sam Smith / Normani - 2019

Beautiful vocals, the lure of dancing with a stranger.. It's a great song to get lost in and sing along to.

Notable lyric: "Can you light the fire"

Just Dance - Lady Gaga featuring Colby O'Donis - 2008

Hard to believe this dance pop smash by Lady Gaga is over a decade old. Timeless and easy to listen to and enjoy (responsibly lol).

Notable (party) lyric "A busy twister dance, can't find my drink or man"

Dance me to the End of Love - Madeleine Peyroux - 2004

A sultry and mellow recording by jazz singer Madeleine Peyroux, also released by the legendary Leonard Cohen in 1984

Notable lyric: "Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin"

Rhythm is a Dancer - Snap - 1992

A hugely popular Eurodance track from the Generation X early 90's dance club scene. A cool retro rewind to carefree days.

Notable lyric "Rhythm is a dancer, it's a soul companion"

Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now) - C&C Music Factory -1990

One of the most powerful dance tracks of the early 1990's and an all time favorite. The video has fantastic energy, style and dance moves.

Notable lyric: "The music takes control, your heart and soul"

Dance Desire - Haywire - 1987

This video by Canadian band Haywire was sizzling and seductive for the time. Catchy beat and lyrics and a sound that kind of rocked too. DROP THE NEEDLE!

Notable lyric "I look in your eyes and my world starts to shake"

I Wanna Dance With Somebody - Whitney Houston - 1987

This is a fun, energetic and cute pop song that forever lives on. Whitney Houston was at the height of her fame and released a playful and colorful video to enjoy along with her amazing voice.

Notable lyric: "I've been in love and lost my senses, spinning through the town"

Private Dancer - Tina Turner - 1984

This soft pop kind of melancholy number from legendary Tina Turner featured a memorable video with Tina playing an elegant ballroom dancer for hire. This track was actually originally recorded by Dire Straits.

Notable lyric: "Deutch marks or dollars.. American Express will do nicely, Thank you"

Let's Dance - David Bowie - 1983

This was my introduction to David Bowie as a pre-teen, when on a music show this video was facing off against another by hot band of the day (Duran Duran) I watched a lot of videos as a kid and Bowie was a big deal around this time for a new generation. His videos and music, including this funky dance track were a great part of the 80's experience.

Notable lyric: "Let's sway.. under the moonlight, this serious moonlight"

Safety Dance - Men Without Hats - 1982

This jovial unforgettable 80's hit will inspire you to move. The song was written after the lead singer of the band was kicked out of a club for pogo dancing. The video looks like an English folk renaissance faire and is quite entertaining.

Notable lyric: "And we can act like we come from out of this world, leave the real one far behind"

Dancing with Myself - Billy Idol - 1981

This pop punk classic from Billy Idol is a great track to listen to loud and feel the energy take over. Great for a party or just dancing alone! Billy is looking pretty hot in the video too.

Notable lyric: "With the record selection and the mirror's reflection, I'm dancing with myself"

Dancing Queen - Abba - 1977

One of Abba's most popular hits and a great party song that brings joy. I have a memory of this song being revived in a bar called the Trasheteria, where Wednesday's in the mid 1990s were 'retro night' I still remember the energy of the crowd dancing to this on the compact stage and dance floor. An eternal classic!

Notable lyric: "You can dance, you can jive, having the time of your life"

You Make Me Feel Like Dancing - Leo Sayer - 1976

One of the most energetic tracks on the playlist, this disco track is the one to get silly to and bust out some dormant long forgotten, or newly acquired retro dance moves.

Notable lyric: "You put a spell on me, I'm right where you want me to be"

Dancing Days - Led Zeppelin - 1973

Such a cool but easy going song from the awesome album Houses of the Holy. The guitar sound was inspired by an Indian tune the band heard while traveling in Bombay.

Notable lyric: "You are my flower, you are my power"

      This is a great group of songs to play for dancing. I like Whitney Houston's song the best as I love to hear her sing.

      Great songs for getting everyone dancing on their doorsteps while social distancing or for an online dance party.
