Since its origins in the 1990s, trance music has been known to have influences from genres such as house music, big room, ambient, techno and even tech house. Today, trance music can be broken down into many smaller sub-genres, some of which include hard, euphoric and commercial, uplifting trance and progressive trance.
Even though trance music has made many transitions throughout the years, the euphoric genre remains to have a tempo lying anywhere between 125 and 150 beats per minute.
In the early days of trance, the scene was being pushed forward by the likes of Tiesto, Rank 1, Sasha, Paul Oakenfold, Markus Schulz and a handful of other artists. In the current state of trance, artists such as Above & Beyond, Armin van Buuren, Andrew Rayel, Gareth Emery and Markus Schulz continue to push the scene in a new direction.
We have compiled 40 of the best trance songs of all time. While this list may be subjective to some, this list includes some of the most influential trance songs of all time.
