The best dance songs of all time

Dance music is a genre that has evolved a great deal over the decades, adding many new elements also thanks to the contribution of electronic music. 

The well-known US music magazine 'Rolling Stone' has tried to draw up a personal ranking of the best dance songs of all time, capable of making the history of this musical genre, also helping to define the sound of the various musical decades. 

Obviously, there is nothing more personal than musical taste, and even in this case, the ranking does not define which songs are the absolute best: certainly, however, these songs have marked the history of the dance genre.
