    it depends on if it is a fast tap or a slow tap

    Scar - Missy Higgins

    One night only - From dream girls

    I wanna dance with somebody - Whitney Huston or the glee version

    We no speak americano - I cant think of who it is by

    Smooth criminal - Michael Jackson

    Man in the mirror - Michael Jackson

    Crazy little thing called love - I can't think of who this is by either sorry

    Like I love you - Justin Timberlake

    Halo - Beyonce

    Pretty Woman - Not sure who it is by

    Big yellow taxi - I cant think of the person and its irritating me

    Tokyo drift - cant think of who it is by either

    Pretty much anything that is with a good beat that you think you can tap to I'm in the process of finding a fast tap song for myself actually haha :)

    If you google the song titles of the ones I'm not sure about you'll be able to find the artist

    It depends on the style of tap you are doing (classic/broadway or funk/hoofing). I have used ALL kinds but am partial to funk/hoofing style tap so I pick music with great beats that I can intertwine with great tap rhythms. A great fun swing style piece that was a favorite of mine and it has good changes and song mash ups is "Swing The Mood" by Jive Bunny & The Mixmasters. For a more funky piece try any modern songs you may love personally. I find if you love the song it only makes your love of tap that much more evident! Happy tapping!
