Need a song for senior dance recital!?

I'm a choreographer and I need a song for a senior recital.

Something similar to "A Little Party Never Killed Nobody" (with that jazz/Gatsby feel, but modern. Something I could do a kick line to at the end) or something similar to "You Make My Dreams" by Hall & Oats. I'm looking for a song that people will know and that has that has that special fun quality. Something relatively fast that has a good beat. Doesn't have to relate to being a senior (in college) but I want this dance to be huge, badass, and unforgettable.

I recently choreographed to "All That Jazz" from Chicago and it was a hit because I put in a kickline at the end. Yeah...I need something THAT big and memorable.

These are some of my options but none of them feels like "the one:"

Ain't no other man by Christina Agulaira

High school musical from High School Musical 3 (thought it could be cute)

I'm a believer

Brave by Sara Barellis

Buenos Aires from Evita

crazy little thing called love by Michael Buble

let's be bad from SMASH (NBC)

mambo number 5

best I ever had by Gavin Degraw

paradise by the dashboard light by Meatloaf

The 2 songs that are at my top (because they're closest to my 2 examples above) are Ain't No Other Man or High School Musical.

HELP!

Update:

Something upbeat that is somewhat fast. Preferably with a modern 1920's or 1950's/60's feel
