List Rules Songs with dancing in the title are fair game, but this list focuses mainly on songs about dancing as a subject.

Dance songs are always a great way to let loose and burn off some steam. This is a ranked list of all songs about dancing, as voted on by music fans like you. Tracks like "Let's Dance" by Bowie and "Dance Hall Days" by Wang Chung are extremely well known, but what about lesser know tracks like "...Slowdance on the Inside" by Taking Back Sunday? Some of the songs included below may have the words "dance" or "dancing" in the lyrics or title, while others are only about dancing as a subject or theme. It's safe to say that all these songs are great to dance to, so put your shoes on and get out on the dance floor.

Music isn't typically categorized by the meaning of the words, so this music list is a great way to find some solid dance tracks that are thematically similar. Vote for the dancing songs that you enjoy the most, and downvote ones if you think they're not worthy of being high on the list. If one of your top songs is missing, add it to the list so others can vote for it too. Many genres of music are featured below, including disco, pop, folk, metal, and more.
