The Best Dance Songs of 2013

List Criteria: Only dance songs that were popular in 2013. Songs could be released in 2012, but only came to prominence in 2013 (ex. Rihanna, "Right Now")

This is a list of the best dance songs of 2013 so far. These are songs made to make you move, crafted to teach you how to get down, designed to inspire a great weekend night. Does popularity define a great dance song? Surely, defining good dance music is not a matter of the mind, but of the heart and of the body. 

From dancehall dj greats such as Diplo and icons such as Daft Punk, to newcomers such as Zedd, all the great dance composers have put themselves on the line this year for your listening and dancing pleasure. This genre of music has been growing in popularity. Clubs are growing in size and learning how to strike a balance between playing music loud enough to pulse through in and out your body, and deafening your ears and your heels.

Are longer dance songs more popular? Are shorter songs more effective? Does one need to keep dancing in order to know that they have enjoyed a great dance song? Does Steve Aoki pair well with Linkin Park, and should they do it again? Only your opinions will reign supreme. Submit, link a video for verification of your song's greatness, and get the voting. Do not forget to leave comments below as well. Cheers!
