Dancing with the Stars Season 13 Music Suggestions

For those who might be new to Pure DWTS, you might not know that each season we’ve been listing the various music used on Dancing with the Stars. We’ll be doing the same for Dancing with the Stars season 13. So, check back here if you’re interested in knowing the various songs used on DWTS. In fact, you can also bookmark the Dancing with the Stars music page which will update with the latest music. Plus, you can go through all of the past music to see what was used before.

As we get ready for the Dancing with the Stars season 13 premiere, we thought it would be fun to create a list of music that we’d love to see on DWTS. Here’s some ideas and we welcome you to add your own DWTS music wish list in the comments.

Lady Gaga: Born This Way Born This Way - Born This Way (Bonus Track Version) and/or You And I Yoü and I - Born This Way (Bonus Track Version)
Tony Bennett and Amy Winehouse “Body and Soul” Body and Soul - Body and Soul - Single (tribute to Amy and again would go great with the messages this season.)
Madonna: Miles Away Miles Away - Hard Candy (Deluxe Version) (great song to go with a slow Latin number)
Corey Hart’s “Sunglasses at Night” Sunglasses at Night - Corey Hart: The Singles (guilty pleasure night please)
Valerie Valerie - Back to Black: B-Sides from Amy Winehouse would make a great Quickstep
Aretha Franklin “Ain’t No Way” Ain't No Way - Aretha Franklin: 30 Greatest Hits
Rihanna “California King Bed” California King Bed - Loud
Tom Jones “It’s Not Unusual” It's Not Unusual - Mad Men - A Musical Companion (1960-1965)
David Bowie “Cat People (Putting Out Fire)” Cat People - Let's Dance (Remastered)
Poison “Talk Dirty To Me” Talk Dirty to Me - The Best of Poison - 20 Years of Rock (Remastered)
Cher “If I Could Turn Back Time” If I Could Turn Back Time - If I Could Turn Back Time - Cher's Greatest Hits
Lionel Ritchie “Hello” Hello - 20th Century Masters - The Millennium Collection: The Best of Lionel Richie
Beyonce: Best Thing I Never Had Best Thing I Never Had - 4
Britney Spears: I Wanna Go I Wanna Go - Femme Fatale (Deluxe Version)
Maroon 5 featuring Christina Aguilera: Moves Like Jagger Moves Like Jagger (Studio Recording from
Lil Wayne: How To Love How to Love - Tha Carter IV (Deluxe Edition)
Rihanna: Cheers Cheers (Drink to That) - Loud
KC And The Sunshine Band: Get Down Tonight Get Down Tonight - KC & the Sunshine Band... and More
Cry Baby Cry Baby - The Lady Killer (Deluxe Version) by Cee Lo Green

I’ll be interested if any Cher music makes it on the show. Chaz has said he doesn’t want to use Cher’s music, but if Chaz stays around a couple weeks I’m not sure the producers will give Chaz and Lacey much choice. They’re going to want Cher’s music on the show.

Big Thanks to Courtney, Vogue and Princess Heidi for their contributions. I look forward to seeing your music suggestions.

DWTS12 Week 6 – “Guilty Pleasures Week” Song Predictions

 We all seemed to have a good time speculating about what songs we might hear during DWTS “American Night”, and we even got some right.  So what songs can we expect to hear  on Dancing with the Stars “Guilty Pleasures” night? Below are some of our predictions:

“Sunglasses at Night” Sunglasses at Night - Corey Hart: The Singles by Corey Hart (Court’s Note: This one has an extremely strong paso doble beat, and was popular in 1984 – the year Karate Kid was released.  Coincidence? Maybe…maybe not ;-))

“Macarena” Macarena (Original Version) - Fiesta Macarena by Los Del Rio – Bayside Boys Remix Macarena (Bayside Boys Remix) - Fiesta Macarena Dance Radio Edit Macarena (Dance Radio Edit) - Macarena - Single Ricer Re-mix Macarena (River Re-Mix) - Fiesta Macarena

“You Make My Dreams” You Make My Dreams - (500) Days of Summer (Music from the Motion Picture) [Bonus Track Version] by Hall & Oates

“…Baby One More Time” ...Baby One More Time - Greatest Hits: My Prerogative by Britney Spears (rumored to be Kirstie & Maks’ samba song)

So those are our picks…what are yours? Is there some cheesy song that you’re ashamed to admit that you’d LOVE to hear on the show? Don’t be shy…we all know you still sing out loud in your car to “My Heart Will Go On” My Heart Will Go On - Let'S Talk About Love. ;-)

We’ll be posting the songs that are used on DWTS Guilty Pleasures night at this link.

Dancing with the Stars American Week Music

Well, I’m really happy to say that Vogue did an amazing job on her list of possible American music for Dancing with the Stars. I knew that Lee Greenwood would have to make an appearance on this list and figured that someone’s version of America the Beautiful would as well. Sadly I figured Yankee Doodle Dandy would as well, but I think it’s a terrible song for ballroom. I was surprised by Viva Las Vegas which makes me happy since I live in Vegas.

Anyway, below you’ll find the list of American music used on DWTS and as always you can see the full list of Dancing with the Stars music. Although, I’d probably rather go look at the list of American music that Vogue created if I were you.

Ralph & Karina danced a Samba to the song “Sweet Home Alabama” Sweet Home Alabama - The Essential Lynyrd Skynyrd — Lynyrd Skynyrd
