Great Music for Tapping

I actually haven't had many experiences where I thought the music used for my tap concerts were all that suitable for tap. I'VE BEEN DEPRIIII VED!!! :( So thanks guys, this is really helpful, I might suggest some of these to my teachers. Thanks for all the ideas!
Actually, there was a song I used last year which was not all too bad- Booty Call, by Blackstreet, I believe- and because it was funk-ish in style, it made my dance streetlike, which was new to me, as I'd always used the traditional type of songs. To try out something new like this style of song was awesome- and I'm willing to try out other styles as well, which I haven't used before!

this year we're using "Crazy Little Thing Called Love" for senior tap... really great swing-style song. There are two versions: the original by 'Queen' or a remake by Michael Buble. Both very very good

at my dance studio, we had tap numbers to R.O.C.K. in the USA by John Mellancamp, Hit 'Em Up Style by Blu Cantrell, and the cartoon version of Trashin' the Camp from Tarzan. trashin' the camp was cute because of all the sound effects in the song.

some of the best tap songs that we have found are :
dancin' fool
one - chorus line
consider yourself
all that jazz
sparkling diamonds
hot honey rag

this year we are tapping to smooth criminal - michael jackson. it 's cool, quite fats to dance to but it gives you a great chance to do some michael jacksonesque moves. the younger ones are dancing to 'baby edie'(that might not be the title)

well I had a lot of good songs but they were already mentioned so I won't repeat them! one really good song I know is called "renegade master" by fat boy slim, anyone who is looking for a hip hop sort of funky tap should check out this song!
