So I'm applying to choreograph a dance for my school's spring dance concert, and I'm wondering what song you guys would rather see a dance too. Whichever song I pick, it'll probably be a lyrical/jazz dance.

This year, not everyone who wants to choreograph a dance will be able to- more potential choreographers than there are spots. I really want to be chosen as a choreographer- especially since it looks like I won't be able to perform in my studio's recital (it's probably the same day as my high school graduation!) so I want to make sure that I choose a good song.

There have been a lot of interesting dances in the past few years- a really big variety. Most of the people watching the performance will be students at my school who are not dancers (so things like "is this overused in competition?" are completely irrelevant). The general consensus among non-dancer students is that it's more enjoyable when the songs are ones that they recognize.

So, out of the following, which song would you rather see a dance to? Which, do you think, would lend itself to the best choreography?
-"Decode" by Paramore (www.youtube.com . . .)
-"Viva La Vida" by Coldplay (www.youtube.com . . .)
-"One Thing" by Finger Eleven (www.youtube.com . . .)
-"Love Remains The Same" by Gavin Rossdale (www.youtube.com . . .)
-"Heaven" by Angels & Airwaves (www.youtube.com . . .)- I wouldn't use the full version, I would use an edited version that basically cuts out some of the un-neccessarily long instrumentals
-"Meant To Live" by Switchfoot (www.youtube.com . . .)
-"Anxiety" by Good Charlotte" (www.youtube.com . . .)
-"Stairway To Heaven" by Led Zeppelin (www.youtube.com . . .)- For the sake of time, I would edit it to ~5 minutes or less

You have some amazing songs there that I , myself, have considered for choregraphing. It is definitely between Coldplay and Gavin Rossdale. Let us know if you get picked and what song you choose!

I ended up choosing "Decode", but sadly I didn't get picked to actually choreograph :(
