♬ What the Hell - Avril Lavigne

This is one of my personal favorites at the moment, not just because I'm an Avril fan, but because the dance is super easy to learn: all it requires is for you to walk, sway your hips, and jump around! I particularly love using this sound when I'm in a fancy outfit since I can strut and show it off.
