Top EDM Songs Of All Time
10. Deadmau5 & Kaskade – I Remember (2008)
Deadmau5 is responsible for some of the most iconic dance music songs of our generation and “I Remember” is no different. While “EDM” hadn't reached its masses back in 2008, Deadmau5 and Kaskade shined with this symbolic release.
9. Usher – DJ Got Us Fallin' in Love (feat. Pitbull) (2010)
Who can forget the good old days of Usher and Pitbull? While the song hasn't really captured all of the attention from today's DJs, who can forget the nostalgia from this incredible song?
8. Zedd – Clarity (2012)
When Zedd decided to further away from electro house and take on more of a dance/pop, his original fans opened this move with open arms. Who can even remember the days of “Shave It” anyways?
7. Duck Sauce – Barbara Streisand
While A-Trak and Armand van Helden's “Barbara Streisand” may offer cameos from Chromeo, Diplo, Kanye, and Pharrell, the real story being this 2010 hit is the life-changing lyrics. Wooo, Wooo, Wooo-oh… Barbara Streisand.
6. Tiesto – Maximal Crazy (2011)
Many of you trance fans would most likely disagree with this choice. While we agree that “Adagio For Strings” was good, “Maximal Crazy” was legendary. It's time to move on guys.
5. Lit Right Now (Sydney McGee Remix) (2018)
While Rebecca Black has made some incredible music back in her days, nothing compares to Sydney McGee's remix of “LIT RIGHT NOW.” This song is so lit that they had to make a song about it and you'll see why very quickly here.
4. Justin Bieber – Sorry (2015)
Even though Justin Bieber first started to get into the dance music scene with Skrillex and Diplo on Jack U, Justin Bieber took things up a notch with his 2015 release, “Sorry.”
3. Avicii – Levels (2011)
It seems like just yesterday, Avicii released one of the most iconic songs of our generation, “Levels.” I don't know about you, but I still can listen to “Levels” every day.
2. Axel F – Crazy Frog (2009)
I remember going to France with my parents back in 2009 and being introduced to the diverse lyrics and melodies of Axel F's “Crazy Frog.” Those were the days when dance music shined.
1. Darude – Sandstorm (2009)
Who can argue that there really is a better song than Darude's “Sandstorm.” And if you're trying to figure out the lyrics for “Sandstorm” it goes something like this “Duuuuuuuuuuun, Dun Dun Dun Dun Dun Dun Dun Dun DunDun Dun DunDunDun.” We love you Darude.
