2. New Order, ‘Blue Monday’

New Order's 1983 hit "Blue Monday" is such a staple of British dance clubs that it has the distinction of being the top-selling 12-inch single in the history of the United Kingdom. The track has been remixed, covered and sampled many times over, but no version ever seems to top the original, which hits just the right balance of funk, angst and aloof sexiness.

1. Daft Punk, ‘One More Time’

Daft Punk's 2000 hit "One More Time" won this poll in a landslide, which shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone who has ever seen the French DJ duo in concert or has ever been to a club with the song blasting over the soundsystem.
