Seven Songs That Need To Be In Dance Central

by Kyle Hilliard on Sep 05, 2012 at 08:50 AM

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 Style
To 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 Flower
I 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 – Miracles
You 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 Game
The 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 – Yatta
This 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 – Tetris
In 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 Mario
This 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.
