The lights are on
Harmonix has confirmed a huge list of songs for Dance Central 3, and even after the game releases more and more will be added. These are some of the songs that haven't been confirmed, but we hope they end up in the game at some point.
PSY – Gangnam StyleTo be honest, I don’t know anything
about this song. What I do know, however, is that it is probably the best
music video that has been allowed to exist in decades. Also that weird
lasso-horse-riding-dance thing looks like it would be amazing fun.
Radiohead – Lotus FlowerI am a big Radiohead fan, and while the band has made appearances in Rock Band, I would really like to see them show up in Dance Central. "Lotus flower" is perfect, or absolutely terrible, depending on how you look at it. It should be the final song of the game, and should recreate one-to-one each awkward gesticulation of Thom Yorke in the music video. It would be hard as nails, and it would make the dancer look like an idiot, which is ultimately what Dance Central is all about.
Insane Clown Posse – MiraclesYou know you want it. Don’t pretend like you don’t. Look out for some rough language in the video below, which is totally necessary when asking questions about rainbows.
Anamanaguchi – Rock Club from Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The GameThe soundtrack for the Scott Pilgrim video game is one of the best in years. A lot of it is super fast-paced and frenetic, but I think Rock Club has a pace that many would consider acceptable for dancing. Plus, it has the word club in the title which implies dancing.
Green Leaves – YattaThis is another music video that I am not going to pretend I know anything about. I found a Wikipedia entry on the song and the band, but I feel like if I read too much about them, it will ruin the magic of...whatever this is. The choreography is mostly done. All it needs is a bit of digital translation into Dance Central. At the very least, their costumes should be unlockable bonuses.
Dr. Spin a.k.a. Andrew Lloyd Weber – TetrisIn 1992 Andrew Lloyd Weber took a break from creating musicals like Cats, Jesus Christ Superstar, and Evita to create this little masterpiece of a song. He took on the pseudonym Dr. Spin to release the song, but I don’t know why. This song is amazing and easily dwarfs all of his other accomplishments. You can skip to about 55 seconds in the video below if you want to get right to the Tetris.
Koji Kondo – Do The MarioThis is another song where the choreography is already done. All you have to do is swing your arms from side to side, then take a step and then again. It's perfect. Honestly, this is what Dance Central should have been demoed on when it was originally announced.

I was expecting this to be a funny post but I love all of these songs.
Raining Blood by Slayer! I'd love to see that song, and watch the idiots try dancing to that! There'd be more broken furniture than with the Wii when it came out!
Gangnam style would require wearing shades indoors...and it would be marvelous
gangnam style and yatta were hilarious....scott pilgrim was real good and the rest was terrible (obviously icp)
I love Gangnam Style!!! "I Am the Best" from 2NE1 is confirmed, so why not this one?!?! Everyone should get into Gangnam Style!!!
That said, I HATE Insane Clown Posse. However, I would LOVE to see Cobra Starship's "1Nite" featuring My Name is Kay. That's a song that begs to be danced to!
Haha Radiohead... that would be hilarious. I dance like that naturally so I know I would nail it. Thom Yorke actually stole those moves from me.
I would love to see Gangnam Style added to the list. As for Yatta, having that in Dance Central would make the world a better place. Simply because of the laughter it would generate.
