Old 97's inspire ’Top 10 dance songs’

Share on Nextdoor

The Old 97's (pictured) first studio album in nearly four years, Blame It on Gravity, doesn't come out until May 13 but an advance copy reached my desk today. If you're a fan of the band's smart, catchy, emotive twang-pop, rest assured, it's another compelling disc from one of the most consistently satisfying alt-country acts around. I'm still gleefully digesting the album, but one song that immediately caught my attention is "Dance With Me" (it can be heard here), which joins a great tradition of songs that feature the word 'dance' (or 'dancing') in the title.

Top 10: Dance songs

1. "Dance to the Music," Sly & the Family Stone

2. "Save the Last Dance for Me," The Drifters

3. "Dancing Queen," ABBA

4. "Dancing Days," Led Zeppelin

5. "Dancing in the Dark," Bruce Springsteen

6. "I Just Want to Dance with You," John Prine/George Strait

7. "Dance, Dance, Dance," Neil Young

8. "The Humpty Dance," Digital Underground

9. "Come Dance with Me," Frank Sinatra

10. "Dance With Me," Old 97's
