Kickstart 2010 by revisiting the top dance songs of 2009 that made us groove, celebrate and live life in full swing. 2009, for instance, was the year that unveiled a true diva, Kelly Rowland, whose life post-Destiny’s Child and Sony sparked a new musical journey. She teamed up with David Guetta to knock out the worldwide smash “When Love Takes Over”, a track that took over dance floors globally, becoming one of the top dance songs of 2009. The impact was such that the moment it hit WMC, it became an unstoppable force.
David Guetta further cemented his position as 2009’s man of the moment. His collaboration with the Black Eyed Peas resulted in two massive hits – “Boom Boom Pow” and “I Got a Feelin.” These songs didn’t just dominate the club scene but also ruled the Top 40 charts for most of the spring season, indicating a shift in the musical tastes of listeners. David Guetta and the Black Eyed Peas revolutionized the Top 40 radio scene in the U.S, paving the way for more pop artists to follow suit.
A surprise hit that year came from Swedish newbie Agnes’ with “Release Me.” Her simple, yet catchy pop style coupled with the right production magic from Cahill was a treat to the dance floor enthusiasts, ranking her music among the top dance songs of 2009.
While the unfortunate news of pop icon Michael Jackson’s passing took center stage that year, Lady Gaga’s ascend to fame shared the spotlight. Her debut album “The Fame”, which came out in August 2008, was praised by influential music blogs for its dance-ready electronic beats and pop sensibility. The album’s lead single “Just Dance” made waves in clubs across the globe. As a result, Top 40 radio couldn’t resist her charm and had to include her music in their rotation, further propelling her career.
We must also acknowledge Beyonce’s top game in 2009, with chart-topping hits like “Single Ladies,” “Halo,” and “Sweet Dreams,” that continuously kept her in the news. Lady Gaga’s “Poker Face” also made headlines, Mariah Carey and P!nk delivered hits, and even Britney Spears brought us the brilliant “3.”
One standout song that year was “Patron Tequila” by Paradiso Girls and Lil Jon, which was one of three hits celebrating a good time. Erika Jayne’s “Give You Everything” from her album “Pretty Mess” also became a favorite. Lastly, we saw Anjulie’s “Boom” top the club charts.
In conclusion, 2009 was an unforgettable year in the dance music scene, and the top dance songs of 2009 are an enduring testament to that. This was just a glimpse into the exciting year that was 2009. Stay tuned for more exciting tidbits and remember to check out the gayest version of Miley Cyrus’ “Party in the U.S.A.” by NYCFudge, which I must confess is a guilty pleasure of mine below.
