Here at Fiestah we know that you can’t always hire a DJ for your next party, but that shouldn’t stop it from being dance-tastic! Take a tip from our recent blog post and throw a 90s-themed party complete with the biggest dance hits of the 90s. We have combed through DJ Ken Drew’s 200 best dance songs list and have chosen our 10 favorite 90s dance hits that are sure to make everyone at your next party get jiggy with it.
Baby Got Back – Sir Mix-A-Lot
Chances are you and your party guests already have this song memorized and that makes it a great jump-start to any party.
Whoomp! There It Is – Tag Team
We once knew a girl who loved this song so much that she wanted it to be her wedding march song. While you may not love this song as much as her, its infectious beats are enough to get even the most timid party guest on the dance floor.
U Can’t Touch This- MC Hammer
Justin Bieber may be trying to bring hammer pants back, but don’t let that dissuade you from enjoying this timeless dance classic.
Gettin’ Jiggy Wit It- Will Smith
Before he was Muhammad Ali and the father of a girl who really likes to whip her hair, Will Smith was getting jiggy with in this favorite dance tune.
Everybody Dance Now
The reason is in the title, so your party guests won’t be able to resist that they should…dance…now.
Jump – Kris Kross
With their backward clothes and shaved eyebrows, these two kids had an abundance of swagger before swagger was really a thing. And if your guests don’t dance to this track then they are wiggity wiggity wiggity wack.
The Macarena-Los Del Rio
We don’t know the lyrics beyond, “blaahblahablahblahblah Macarena, Heeeeey Macarena, A-Hai!” But that doesn’t take away from it’s ability to get any group of people to form a line and let loose.
Livin’ la Vida Loca – Ricky Martin
Ahh, 1999. People were freaking out about Y2K and Ricky Martin’s answer was simple: chill out and live la vida loca. It’s 2012 and we are still living la vida loca. Thank you Ricky Martin.
This Is How We Do It – Montell Jordan
Montell’s smooth R&B voice is enough to get any 90s party started while offering some sound advice about drinking and driving: “When [you] reach for the 40 and [you] turn it up” make sure the “designated driver takes the keys to [your] truck.”
I Like it Like That – The Blackout Allstars feat. Tito Nieves
Fun fact: this song was on the soundtrack of an urban comedy-drama starring Tootsie from The Facts of Life. The movie looks kind of depressing, but, fortunately, this song is anything but. This Latin hit is full of horns, drum solos and good times, musts for any dance party.
