So You Think You Can Dance - Song List

UPDATE: Check here for the latest Postings of So You Think You Can Dance including song lists from the 2007 and 2008 episodes.

I know, it's LONG over and I need to get over it, but I was watching the finale of So You Think You Can Dance again yesterday at the gym where it reruns in Canada on MuchMusic and remembered how much I loved it. Meanwhile, I've also noticed a lot of people seem to be searching for the list of the awesome songs they used, and since my sister compiled this list (while she's at university... obviously studying huh?), I thought I would publish it (though I'm not sure if its complete):

It's not in the greatest format but basically it's listed this way (though sometime the style of Dance is missing):
Dancer(s) - Dance - Artist - Song Title
Highlights are my faves that I remember (I'll link the clips later but they are somewhere on my site for some of them).

I've been downloading songs from the show! It's about to finish here in aust..yeah we're so far behind. I love a lot of those songs! thanks for the list :)

Vance said...

NP, though mostly it's thanks to my sis for putting the list together (even though she should have been studying...)!

Anonymous said...

Hi, I was wondering if you know the name of the song the show plays after they tell someone that they're leaving. It's the song they play while everyone looks at their past performances. Thanks a lot.

Vance said...

You Mean Matt Goss' "it's The End of the Road" song?

Anonymous said...

Thanks Vance!, but I found out the name of the song is "Suddenly I see", by KT Tunstall.

Thx again!

Anonymous said...

Hi there, on the last show in Australia, I heard a song which included lyrics similar to "Where your book begins" toward the end of the show. Does anyone know the song, please?

Anonymous said...

i think that song "Where your book begins" are some of the lyrics for unwritten - Natasha Bedingfield hope that helped!

Anonymous said...

are there two defferent songs for it's The End of the Road, a girl one and a boy one?? they seem to be different for when a boy leave and what a girl leaves.. anyone know the girl one? thannx:D

Vance said...

Yeah, there's Matt Goss' song (It's The End of the Road) for the boys, and KT Tunstall's "Suddenly I See" for the girls when they leave.

As for "Book begins", I'm pretty sure it was the song "Unwritten" too by Natasha Beddingfield.

May be you can help me. I am searching for a song some of the routines were danced to - possibly contemporary ones. Lyrics are something like, "feel the breeze on your...".

Does anyone know the R&B song that one of the couples danced to? The black male dancer was complimented for his choreography but was critized on the execution. He tried to express the sentiments of the song which was slow and rhythmic and sung by a female. It's killing me to know!...Thx

Anonymous said...

can anyone tell me the name of the song that was used in the auditions near the end. It was a couple, she was a beautiful dancer (wearing a purple shirt. I think she said she had him come along as she needed a partner. The song was a slower song. Hope this is enough of a description for someone...Please let me know!!

Does anyone know the name of the song and artist mia michaels used for the combination she did on june 5th thursday?

Andrei said...

Does anyone (please) know the name of the song one of the girls did. She was a finalist and it started with her stepping up and grabbing her ankle with her foot flexed in the opposite direction. She had short hair, but didnt make it pass that round. The song verse was "god it feels so good every time your near".......

Anonymous said...

Could someone please tell me the name of the smooth jazzy/funk song that the first couple danced to in this past week's show? (the first couple's song, from the same episode that featured that military-notice choreographed dance, which I thought was the best dance of the evening)

Vance said...

Was the Jazz/Funky song you are talking about "American Boy" by Estelle (feat. Kanye West) that Jamie and Rayven danced too?

And was the Mia Michaels one "Beautiful" - Me'Shell Ndegocello?

Hi there,
i am wondering if any one knows the song that one of the guys dance to last night for his "last chance dance" to avoid elimination. It was the thursday June 19, 2008 show and I think the song was called "again". I thought it was maybe by Ben Harper, but cannot seem to find it. I do not know the dancer's name unfortunately.
Help would be appreciated.

Vance said...

The song is "Again" by John Legend.

Chris Jarosz danced his solo to it in the Top 18 results.

I just watched the 2hour episode on July 9th. I missed the credits at the beginning of Comfort & Thane's second routine. It was a slow tempo song that sounded like George Michael. The song ended with the words I swear.
Hope someone knows which song I'm talking about ~ Thanks!

zumbalicious said...

That was George Michael's "A Different Corner" Choreographed by Mandy Moore. It was gorgeous & the song beautiful! I miss George Micheal, I saw him in 1992 - I do believe. Anyway, Great Show!

Hey does anyone know what song they played as a farewell to Will when they were showing his past performances? Thanks.

ashley said...

Does anyone know the name and singer of the song that Courtney and Mark danced to last night in the finale?

blndzr1 said...

If you are talking about the dance choreographed by Sonja where Courtney is wearing the green lacey lingerie the song is called "In the Garden" by Mirah. I'm not sure if the artists name is spelled correctley but I think that it is close.
