Rolling Stone took on an ambitious project few other groups of music lovers could take on: find out the top 100 songs of the century…so far. The last 18 years is a big chunk of time, so it’s best to start ordering everything now and let whatever megahits that surface in the coming years knock some songs off the list. The first song to go would be #100, Daddy Yankee’s famous Reggaeton hit “Gasolina.” Moving on up the list, we see Daft Punk’s One More Time take #84 with their most recent single Get Lucky to score a little higher at #76. Other Dance tracks that Mae the cut include—…well, not many to be frank. Though Diplo’s production work on Paper Planes by M.I.A. Could count. If so, the #2 spot is a great place for it to be, right behind Beyonce and Jay-Z’s Crazy in Love. There’s plenty of songs that made a huge impact on this list, but to be frank there doesn’t seem to be too much attention on the vocal tracks put out by chart-topping Dance producers.

Check out the whole list below and let us know what you think on Twitter @GlobalDanceElec.
