The 10 Hottest Dance Songs of 2011 ...


Dance Songs are fun, flirty, generally full of bass, and great for, well, dancing!

Even when you hear them on the radio, you're tempted to dance a little boogie while waiting at stoplights or sitting in line at the drive-thru.

I love dance songs, even though it takes a lot to get me to dance in public.

A lot of new ones hit it big this year, so I decided to take a look at the hottest dance songs of 2011.

Let me know what you think!

1. “You and I,” Lady Gaga

At the risk of going against popular opinion, I'm not the biggest fan of Lady Gaga's new album – but the songs I love, I love with abandon, and this is definitely one of them.

I love the beat, I love her vocals, I love Jo Calderone, and I love dancing to this!2

It's no surprise to see that Gaga has one of the hottest dance songs of 2011, either – maybe she even has two!

2. “Grenade,” Bruno Mars

Bruno has a gorgeous voice, and this song took off like a rocket.

Or a grenade.

You know, pick the appropriate simile.

Bruno sings other songs that I like better, but I can understand why so many people like to shake it to this one.

3. “Moves like Jagger,” Maroon 5 with Christina Aguilera

This isn't just one of the most popular dance songs, it's one of my new favorite songs ever.

I've loved Maroon 5 since they were still Kara's Flowers.

This song is a different sound from them, perhaps because Christina is on it.

I don't like her as much as I used to, but that's okay.

All of Adam's vocals and those to-die-for lyrics make up for it!

4. “without You,” David Guetta and Usher

This song is a little slower than you generally expect from dance hits, but the beat is incredible.

It's the kind of groove that makes you want to dance with someone you really like.

Usher's vocals add a little sex appeal, as always, and how can you listen to those club riffs without wanting to move?

“Cheers (Drink to That),” Rihanna
