Good dance songs for a show?

Here's the thing. I'm not looking for an ordinary like "Britney Spears" type song. We do this show every year at my school. We've done it for 26 years now. So, it's basically any type of thing thats appropriate that can go in the show. Exaples from years past: Seasons of love (from the musical rent), Thriller (michael jackson), Stronger (kelly clarkson), Conga (gloria estefan), everybody (backstreet boys).

We do lots of songs, and the students are the ones that get to make up the choreography. So, i can't have just a girly jazz song on anything like that. Please help! Tell me if you need more details!
