quirky jazz dance songs?

I want to do a really fun jazz piece upbeat but one that has contemporary elements to it. If you are a fan of so you think you can dance i want my piece to be like The Garden or Tore My Heart...any songs similar out there??

or maybe something really quirky like "whats a girl gotta do" basement jaxx

i had chosen night of the dancing flame by roisin murphy but was unable to use it because it had been used any ideas!!

    Cheers! :)
