Top Dancing with the Stars Season 9 Music

Many of you know that we’ve been doing our best to list all of the songs used on Dancing with the Stars. Hopefully you’ve found that useful. I see a lot of people visiting those pages, but rarely hear what people think about it.

Anyway, I always think it’s fun to look back at the music from the season of Dancing with the Stars and see which songs were the most popular. This isn’t scientific. It’s basically based on which songs got the most clicks. So, here’s the top 4 songs used on Dancing with the Stars season 9.

Hallelujah Leonard Cohen - The Essential Leonard Cohen - Hallelujah – Leonard Cohen (this blew all the other songs out of the water)
Would You…. ? Touch & Go - I Find You Very Attractive - Would You... ? – Touch & Go
Living on Video Trans-X - Living On Video - Living On Video – Trans-X
They Jem - Finally Woken - They – Jem

Very interesting set of music. Thanks for stopping by all year for the DWTS music. Of course, we’ll be doing our best to keep up with the other rumors in the off season and be back for more DWTS music next season as well.

Dancing with the Stars Music – Alicia Keys, Leona Lewis and The Bee Gees

Time again for the list of music from the special guests on Dancing with the Stars.

Alicia Keys sang “Try Sleeping with a Broken Heart” Alicia Keys - Try Sleeping With a Broken Heart - Single - Try Sleeping With a Broken Heart with the Alicia Keys’s dancers
Leona Lewis sang “Happy” Leona Lewis - Echo - Happy with the Leona Lewis’ dancers
The Bee Gees sang “You Should Be Dancing” Bee Gees - Saturday Night Fever (The Original Movie Soundtrack) [Remastered] - You Should Be Dancing with Melissa Rycroft, Tony Dovolani, Chelsie Hightower, Cheryl Burke, and Artem Chigvinsev dancing

Also, looks like yesterday we had a real hit with the song Joanna and Derek danced a Viennese Waltz to: “Hallelujah” Leonard Cohen - The Essential Leonard Cohen - Hallelujah—Leonard Cohen. People absolutely love that song (and so they should). I’ll be posting a list of the top music from Dancing with the Stars soon and that one should be on the list.

On a side note, I was sad to see Derek and Joanna get sent home. Not that I was all that surprised. Joanna has a much smaller fan base than the others. What’s most disappointing about it for me is that Derek creates the most incredible freestyle dances. That will be a tremendous loss for the finale. The good part is that at the finale we get to see all of the dancers back on the show. With 16 dancers, that’s going to be a LOT of dances.
