Hey, thanks for the list. Back then I never thought that Rihanna's Disturbia would be included in the Best Dance recordings. Oh well, just saying.

I hate to disagree but that song of Rihanna is really a great dance song. We use that when we practice our routine back from Chicago when I had some dance lessons.
