The Most Popular Electronic Dance Music Songs is a blog that will keep you up to date on the latest and greatest electronic dance music.


Popular electronic dance music (EDM) is often thought of as a new phenomenon, but the genre has actually been around for decades. In the 1990s, artists like The Prodigy and The Chemical Brothers popularized EDM with their blend of techno and rock music. Today, EDM has evolved into a much more diverse genre, with subgenres that include house, trance, dubstep, and drum and bass.

Despite its relatively long history, EDM is still considered a niche genre in the mainstream music industry. This is partly due to the fact that EDM is often associated with illicit substances like MDMA (ecstasy) and LSD (acid). However, there are many EDM songs that are not about drugs at all. In fact, many of the most popular EDM songs are about love, loss, and heartbreak.

Here are five of the most popular EDM songs of all time:

1. “Closer” by The Chainsmokers
2. “Don’t Let Me Down” by The Chainsmokers feat. Daya
3. “Lean On” by Major Lazer & DJ Snake feat. MØ
4. “Sorry” by Justin Bieber
5. “Where Are Ü Now” by Skrillex and Diplo with Justin Bieber

The History of Electronic Dance Music

The first electronic dance music was created in the early 1970s. It was a style of music that was created by DJs and producers who used electronic instruments and audio equipment to create their own unique sound. This new style of music quickly gained popularity in nightclubs and festivals around the world.

Today, electronic dance music is one of the most popular genres of music. It is frequently played at clubs, festivals, and concerts. It is also often heard on the radio, streaming services, and video game soundtracks.

The Different Types of Electronic Dance Music

Electronic Dance Music, or EDM as it’s commonly called, is a broad range of percussive electronic music genres made largely for nightclubs, raves and festivals. It is generally produced for playback by DJs who create seamless selections of tracks, called a mix by segueing from one recording to another.

EDM producers also perform their music live in a concert or festival setting in what is sometimes called a live PA. In Europe, EDM is more commonly called ‘dance music’, or simply ‘dance’.

The term “electronic dance music” and the initials “EDM” were popularized by the American media outlet Dance Music Report (DMR) in the late 1980s and early 1990s. While there are multiple subgenres of electronic dance music, the broadest category includes: techno, house, trance, drum and bass/jungle, dubstep, hardstyle and hardcore.

The Future of Electronic Dance Music

According to a recent study, the future of electronic dance music is looking very bright. In fact, the genre is expected to grow significantly in popularity over the next few years.

There are several reasons for this. First, more and more people are becoming interested in dance music and its various sub-genres. This is due in part to the increasing popularity of festivals like Tomorrowland and Ultra Music Festival, which attract huge crowds from all over the world.

Second, the production values of electronic dance music have increased dramatically in recent years, thanks to advances in technology. This has made the genre more accessible to a wider audience.

Finally, electronic dance music is becoming increasingly mainstream. In recent years, it has been featured in major films and television shows such as The Hangover Part II and Manager Monday Night RAW. This exposure is only likely to increase in the future, which will further boost the popularity of the genre.

So what does this all mean for the future of electronic dance music? It’s safe to say that we can expect even more great music from this genre in the years to come!
