Give me your list of the 5 best dance songs from each decade you can. These will be played at a church, so they gotta be clean. Our parish has a huge party on Pascha every year with a dance floor. So this list will help our young DJ widen her musical horizons a bit.

1990s-'California Love' by Tupac & Dr. Dre (Somewhat clean, I'd suggest playing it at an appropriate time)
1980s-'Bad' by Michael Jackson
1970s-'Right Round Baby' by an artist I forgot the name of
1960s-Something by the Beatles
1950s-Something by Elvis

"Something" by Beatles and Elvis is cheating ;)

30s and 40s- Find a compilation with the word "swing" in the title.
50s- Bill Haley and His Comets "Rock around the Clock", Buddy Holly- "Oh Boy", Little Richard "Tutti Frutti, Chuck Berry "No Particular Place to Go" (Though "Johnny B Good" works for Back the Future fans), and Ritchie Valens "La Bamba". What the heck, number 6 "Chantilly Lace". Pretty much anything by the above six artists works.
60s- Beatles "Twist and Shout"; anything by the 4 Tops, my personal favorite "Standing in the Shadows"; any Beach Boys song with the word "surf" or "surfing" in the title; The Four Seasons "Walk Like a Man"; The Monkees "I'm a Believer". Though anything from 1960 through 1963 works.
70s- Parliament Funkadelic. That is all. Ok, the Ramones "Do You Wanna Dance". Blondie "Atomic"
80s- Let's make this easy. The Soundtrack to the Wedding Singer. Run DMCs "Tricky" and "Run's House".
90s- Big Bad Voodoo Daddies "Go Daddy-O"; Walmart versions of Dr Dre's "Nuthin' But a G Thing"; OutKast's "Ain't No Thang", "Two Dope Boys", "Skew it on the Barbie"
00s- OutKasts "B.O.B.", "Hey Ya"; Arctic Monkeys "I Bet You Look Good On the Dance Floor"; Los Campesinos "We Throw Parties You Throw Knives"; Gnarls Barkley "Go Go Gadget Gospel", "Blind Mary"

I would suggest many things, but hesitate for fear of being held responsible.

Quote from: Fr. Thomas Hopko, dystopian parable of the prodigal son
...you can imagine so-called healing services of the pigpen. The books that could be written, you know: Life in the Pigpen. How to Cope in the Pigpen. Being Happy in the Pigpen. Surviving in the Pigpen. And then there could be counselling, for people who feel unhappy in the pigpen, to try to get them to come to terms with the pigpen, and to accept the pigpen.

1970s: Donna Summer - I Feel Love
1980s: Lil' Louis - French Kiss
1990s: Deee-Lite - Groove Is in the Heart or Madonna - Vogue
2000s: The Chemical Brothers - Star Guitar

The reason why I didn't list anything prior to the 70s is because it's not exactly what I qualify as dance music. 30s-40s you had your swing music. 50s was rock and roll. 60s was soul and R&B.

That's being held the worst kind of responsible.  ;)

1950s "Jailhouse Rock"    Elvis Presley
1960s  "I Want to Hold Your Hand"  Beatles
1970s  "Lucky Man" -- Emerson, Lake, and Palmer (I thought a slow one would be nice)
1980s  "Cars" -- Gary Numan (Technically it was released 1979, but it sounds 80ish to me)
1990s  "Jump Around." -- House of Pain (Thanks to the Mrs. for suggesting this one).

2000's - Russia Privyet, Basshunter. I think Glad You Came by the Wanted is clean, although you might wanna check that.
1990's - Wonderwall and Don't Look Back in Anger, Oasis.
1980's - Thriller, Michael Jackson, of course!  ;D
1970's - The Winner Takes it All, Lay All Your Love on Me, etc., etc., by ABBA
1960's - Perhaps the West Side Story soundtrack? Or something by the Beatles?
1950's - Elvis Presley?

I always liked "Too Legit" better- especially the Addam's Family remix.

It's a shame this is for a dance at an Antiochian church and not Tewahedo. Look at all the fun you could having! ;D
