Interesting facts and trivia about D.A.N.C.E - Radio Edit. By Songfacts®.

The Justice duo are huge Michael Jackson fans, and this song includes a number of references to the King of Pop's songs. They include "Beat It," "Black Or White," "P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing)," and "Workin' Day and Night," along with the Jackson 5 hit "ABC," and Jackson's album Music and Me. Justice's Xavier De Rosnay told NME: "Everyone loved him. We love him too, but it was more of an excuse for us to have a topic to write lyrics about. We thought it would be something playful and fun."

The vocals were provided by the London-based Foundation for Young Musicians choir. They all attend the Centre for Young Musicians, which offers gifted London school children musical training and education irrespective of ability to pay. Gaspard Auge remembers auditioning lots of kids to perform on the song, but most were "too good ... too technical" for the innocence they wanted to capture in the lyrics. "We wrote the score with small, you know, like blue notes so it doesn't sound too perfect," he told NME.

Rolling Stone ranked this at #4 on their list of the 100 Best Songs of 2007.
