Whilst we're revisiting 00s dance in the chart forum, it's time we ranked the biggest dance hits of the 2000s.

The top 15 best-selling dance songs of each year in the UK have been selected, simply rank them from +15 (favourite) to +01 (least favourite) and the top four of each group will be put into a grand final.

2005
2005 was a bit of a transition period for dance music. Electro was starting to make its impact with the likes of 'Shot You Down' and 'I See Girls', as well as the big resurgence in popularity for 'Jacques Your Body' - originally released in 1999. Faithless' huge 90's hit 'Insomnia' was also brought back in the form of a remixed version by Faithless member Sister Bliss (credited as Blissy) and Armand van Helden. Likewise 'Owner Of A Lonely Heart' by Yes was remixed back into the charts by Max Graham, and Miami Sound Machine's 'Dr. Beat' was mashed with Mylo's 'Drop the Pressure' to create 'Doctor Pressure'. Then of course, the infamous 'sample battle' between Cabin Crew and Sunset Strippers who had dance hits sampling the same song - 'Waiting For A Star To Fall'. Both versions charted well and make this list. Bodyrockers had their debut and only hit with dance meets rock 'I Like The Way'. Inaya Day brought nu-disco track 'Nasty Girl' into the top ten and Tom Novy's disco influenced track 'Your Body' also followed. Crazy Frog had one of the biggest ever novelty dance hits with their 'Axel F' cover. DHT brought eurodance back to the top ten with 'Listen To Your Heart' which perhaps led the way for acts like Cascada. Bob Sinclar started his peak period for chart success with 'Love Generation'. Basement Jaxx were also still going, although 'Oh My Gosh' would be the last time they ever saw the UK top 20.

Audio Bullys feat. Nancy Sinatra - Shot You Down
Basement Jaxx - Oh My Gosh
Bob Sinclar feat. Gary Nesta Pine - Love Generation
Bodyrockers - I Like The Way

I have to agree to an extent, like I said this was just a transition year really, there weren't a whole lot of classic dance anthems being released (though at least we got tune of life 'Doctor Pressure')

I don't think so, certainly not compared to recently in the charts with the watered down poppy tropical house and future bass dominance.

Apart from this top 15 there was quite a bit of variety too in dance in 2005 in the top 40 in general, everything from drum and bass to the continuing funky house revival after Lola's Theme in 2004, the 80s remixes and the eurotrance hits in early 2005.

A lot of top 10 dance hits in early 2005 don't make this list because of low sales at the time before downloads counted for the chart in April (Strings of Life (Stronger on My Own), Object Of My Desire, Galvanise (even with low sales around in the charts I really thought this would still make the top 15 dance songs of the year ohmy.gif) Sunrise, Back To Basics, So Much Love To Give and Shine).

Love Generation, Falling Stars, Listen To Your Heart, I Like The Way and Galvanise are generally considered as well known dance classics I thought.

What about Uniting Nations - Out Of Touch - that was your number 7 biggest selling dance track of 2005 on the one on the dance number 1s of the 00s thread post you did for 2005's summary, yet it doesn't appear here.....

Shall we just give it a free pass to the grand final then (as well as our four top ranked ones here). I am quite sure it would have got through anyway.

+15 Bob Sinclar feat. Gary Nesta Pine - Love Generation [10.0] (This song has a really good spiritual feel)
+14 Audio Bullys feat. Nancy Sinatra - Shot You Down [10.0] (This, We Don't Care ["There's things I haven't told you, I go out late at night"] and Only Man are my favourite Audio Bullys tracks)
+13 Bodyrockers - I Like The Way [10.0] (Yes!)
+12 Mylo vs. Miami Sound Machine - Doctor Pressure [10.0] (M O T H E R f*** E R S G O N N A D R O P T H E P R E S S U R E)
+11 DHT feat. Edmee - Listen To Your Heart [10.0]
+10 Les Rythmes Digitales - Jacques Your Body (Make Me Sweat) [10.0] (from that Citroen ad with the dancing robot in it)

+8 Studio B - I See Girls [10.0]

+6 Tom Novy feat. Michael Marshall - Your Body [9.5]
+5 Basement Jaxx - Oh My Gosh [9.5] (My favourite Basement Jaxx tracks are Red Alert, Bingo Bango, Rendez Vu, Romeo, Where's Your Head At, Good Luck, Lucky Star and Do Your Thing)

+3 Inaya Day - Nasty Girl [8.5]
+2 Cabin Crew - Star To Fall [8.0]
+1 Crazy Frog - Axel F [7.5] (quite a guilty pleasure)

I wish Strings Of life (Stronger On My Own), Back To Basics and Love On My Mind would have made this list though.

Actually yeah I like all of those songs you've mentioned so I guess it was just the top sellers I mainly wasn't so fussed on!

And what's happening with Galvanise? If it's being included put it as my +14 & shift everything below it down.
