101 Greatest Dance Songs of The 90s(according to Buzzfeed)

There are great songs on the list but the order is all wrong. Vogue should have been much higher than number 22.

Like 15 or top 10 r1.

R2, agreed. Some of the songs above it were dubious at best.

I don't know most of those songs but I can accept that "Finally" is the No.1 dance song of the 90s. It was a genuine floor filler and could be played several times in one night to ecstatic response. It appealed to everyone -- it was pop, it was Black, it was gay. It has also aged well.

As long as Cece Peniston and Crystal Waters are in the top 10, its a reasonable ranking of 90s dance. Finally was the definitive 90s dance song. Everything else can be left up to debate.

Pretty solid list.
I would have found room for:
"Feels So Good (Show Me Your Love) by Lina Santiago
"Wiggle It" by 2 in a Room
"James Brown is Dead" by LA Style
"Crucified" by Army of Lovers
"A Mover La Colita" by Artie the 1 Man Party
"This House" by Tracie Spencer
and probably the biggest omission...
"Got a Love For You" by Jomanda. That shit was everywhere for years in the early to mid 90's. I had to double check the list because I couldn't believe they didn't put it on.

Good list. I was thinking 100% Pure Love for number one but yeah Finally is good.
A few too many R&B songs for my taste. Like Zhane. Not really dance. More like groove. At least our time with great remixes like the remix of No More Drama.
Would make a good Spotify playlist.

I can’t argue with that top 3. Glad to see “Touch It” by Monifah on the list. That was my jam back in the day.

If this track list was played at a gay bar or a straight bar in the 90's the DJ would have been walked out of the building.
|by Anonymous||reply 11||04/06/2021|
When I started going to clubs this was played repeatedly. Along with the Frankie Knuckles remix of Unbreak My Heart.

"Gonna Make You Sweat" is and will always be #1 in our hearts.
"No Limit" is on the list but I'm surprised that this one isn't on this list since it was (is?) EVERYWHERE in the 90s.

Whenever I see a homeless person I play Gypsy Woman (La Da Dee) on my phone and tell them I'll give them $10 if they dance to it.
For some reason they never do.

I absolutely fucking loathe No Limit, but Get Ready For This was amazing. I always think of Bring It On when I hear it now.

Any list without this one....smh
|by Anonymous||reply 16||04/06/2021|
R11 / perhaps a gay bar in LA or SF or NY or Miami.
But trust me, pretty much any other city and pretty much any straight club would be playing these songs. Well, maybe not Macarena. That shouldn’t even be on the list. It should be an asterisk of some sort.

I also love Finally. I bought that cassette.
But I can't dance.

CeCe Peniston on Finally
|by Anonymous||reply 20||04/06/2021|
Basically anything remixed by Frankie Knuckles. RIP.

No, R16. Aretha butchered the original which should be in the top 5 if not #1.
|by Anonymous||reply 22||04/06/2021|
I agree with a lot of them, but it's obvious this list was made by and for drunk straight white girls.

R20 It's reallllly aggravating how often she says "right," but she seems so genuinely sweet and grateful and gracious and when she sings for a few seconds, her voice is incredible. I wonder why she didn't have a lot more big songs.
|by Anonymous||reply 24||04/06/2021|
r24 yes she is one of the great voices of her generation and she is a nice down to earth person as well. CeCe transitioned more into R&B after her first album. R&B was such a huge genre in the 90s and there was so much amazing talent it was really crowded. She kind of faded into the scene. She might have had more hits if she stuck with dance.
|by Anonymous||reply 25||04/06/2021|
I remember that song, R25, now that I'm hearing it. I guess I didn't really register the artist when it was out, and it's no "Finally." The expressive power of her voice isn't really used to great effect on that song. :-/

I would add the Mortal Kombat theme song to that list.

I was prepared to fight but they chose correctly for #1.

I was a big Cece fan, I had a friend who used to call her cece penis-Ton. I preferred Love Thang to Finally, but oh well. About 5-6 yrs back she went on Celebrity Wife Swap—she was training to be a competitive bodybuilder! Her bf was borderline controlling & made her eat these really bland meals, like boiled chicken & broccoli, while he ate whatever he wanted, right in front of her.
|by Anonymous||reply 29||04/08/2021|
Was he a bodybuilder as well?

It reminds me of Kelly Rowland. She gave up on those Eurodance hits that kept her relevant across the pond.

Does anyone remember "Cotton Eyed Joe" with fondness? Even for camp appeal... it's dreadful.
|by Anonymous||reply 32||04/08/2021|
R30, no, I forgot his occupation but he wasn’t a bodybuilder; also, he seemed to be pressuring her into doing it. The meals he ate in front of her would be really fatty & decadent, he’d never let her have any of his, she had to stick to her boiled chicken breast & whatnot.

Her retouching is obviously done by Brendad.

Time has NOT been kind to the sound of 90s music.
|by Anonymous||reply 35||04/08/2021|
Disagree, especially as 1990s dance music was an arena in which fat, sometimes middle aged, mostly fat and black women could thrive. The programmed sound versus the emotive vocals was lost when autotune became standard.

r8 I was a young teen when GOT A LOVE FOR YOU was released....watched MTV and VH1 constantly. Went to dozens of bar mitzvahs with DJ's playing club hits....never heard this song before. Never even heard of it. There were only a few on the Buzzfeed list I hadn't heard.
|by Anonymous||reply 37||04/08/2021|
That was the perfect top 4. I would have swapped out 5 with Robin “Show Me Love”.
|by Anonymous||reply 38||04/08/2021|
Top 10 are like dance songs for 7-11 employees, kinda generic and uninspired.

r13 That song was everywhere at sporting events and probably still is. I dont think it got a ton of radio / MTV play.
Reminds me of those mix cd's JOCK JAMS which had lots of sports friendly club music
|by Anonymous||reply 43||06/02/2021|
It's actually a terrific list for any younger people who are looking for great dance / exercise music, or any older people looking to create an exercise mix.
How they do the rankings is always going to be arbitrary and silly. But it hits a HUGE portion of hit dance music from the decade (as it should--they get 10 tracks per year, which covers most of the hits since in any year, only a fraction of hits were club/dance music).

I'm probably in the minority, but I absolutely hated her songs/sound. She sounded like she'd rather be doing anything BUT singing.
