Top 10 Dance Music Videos

The arrival of MTV in the early '80s might have killed the radio star but it created a whole new phenomenon - the music video! We're taking a look back at the best, most influential and just plain funnest (it is too a word!) dance videos to ever hit the small screen.

#10. - Run It by Chris Brown

Run It ran all the way up the charts to sit at the number one spot for five straight weeks back in 2005 and the video was along for the ride. Chris Brown gets his groove on in a school auditorium while his fellow b-boys show off their impressive breaking skills. Expect more great vids from Chris when his new album hits shelves later in 2007.

#9. - Praise You by Fatboy Slim

Nerdy is the new cool in Fatboy Slim's classic dance video directed by Spike Jonze. The video features the fictional Torrance Community Dance Group and is shot in front of bemused onlookers outside a California movie theater. The video's so-bad-they're-good dance moves (think Napoleon Dynamite) and measly $800 budget make this a video to remember.

#8. - Here It Goes Again by OK Go

Proving that the internet has officially handed power back to the people, OK Go's Here It Goes Again became a smash hit after launching their innovative music video on YouTube rather than MTV. The video features the band members dancing an impressively choreographed dance on moving treadmills. While simple in its format, this is truly a video that has to be seen to be believed.

#7. - Hey Ya by Outkast

Outkast's Andre 3000 plays several roles in this back-to-the-'60s video that's based on The Beatles' appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show in 1964. The video manages to be both a hilarious parody of '60s dancing and culture as well as a nostalgic tribute. Andre 3000 could have made your standard hip-hop video with shaking booties and a lot of bling but instead he took a big risk that paid off - he won the 2004 MTV Award for Video of the Year.

#6. - Yeah by Usher
Usher's video for Yeah shot him to new heights of stardom and had club-goers everywhere imitating his moves. We dare you not to join in when Ludacris commands that the club "rock away, rock away, rock away. And turn!"
