SCD are often quite good at using contemporary music in the dances, and with 2013 being such a varied year for music, I started wondering what recent hits will end up on the show.

Some of my tips...

Cha-Cha-Cha
Treasure (Bruno Mars)

Rumba
When I Was Your Man (Bruno Mars)
Beneath Your Beautiful (Labrinth & Emeli Sande)

Salsa
Get Lucky (Daft Punk)

Samba
Blurred Lines (Robin Thicke & Pharrel)
Wonder (Emeli Sande & Naughty Boy)

Foxtrot
A Beautiful Day (Michael Buble)
Just Give Me A Reason (Pink feat. Nate Ruess)

Viennese Waltz
Let Her Go (Passenger)

Quickstep
Little Talks (Of Monsters & Men)
It's Time (Imagine Dragons)

Paso Doble
Pompeii (Bastille)

We'll see a Charleston to Bang Bang by will.i.am that Len'll despise, a Contemporary to a Tom Odell track (they sound mostly the same) if they follow DWTS further and introduce it as a dance, a Rumba to Diamonds by Rihanna, and a plodding Samba to One More Night by Maroon 5.

I agree that Treasure will almost certainly be used, too.

The new Eliza Doolittle single sounds like it'll be used for some variation of sal-sam-cha at some point.

I wouldn't be surprised to see Get Lucky forced into a cha-cha for a show-opening dance in week 1.

If they did a Fusion, then "Love Me Again" by John Newman will probably be used. "La La La" by Naughty Boy ft Sam Smith could possibly work as a (very) slow Cha Cha. I'm pretty sure "I Love It" by Icona Pop will be a Showdance too.

I just hope they use traditional music for an AT or a Paso and don't ruin them with silly music...... rest...I think is very much workable and I don't care much....

ETA... some workable song choices here but no to ' I love it' for any genre please!!!!

Well I'm don't know if it'll be used but I think a good contemporary song for a QS could be 'Lightening Bolt' by Jake Bugg - I think the song would suit a younger celeb - it would also have been an appropriate song for Usain Bolt if they ever managed to get him on the show but I don't think there's any chance of that happening

Dave Arch and his Orchestra taking on Icona Pop would be something..

I died at their "Mama Do The Hump" last year.

They were (c)rapping!

Why do envisage it sounding like a herd of Daleks?...

"The Other Side" by Jason Derulo (Cha Cha Cha)

When I Was Your Man by Bruno Mars is bound to be used! Probably Beneath Your Beautiful as well.

Basically, the songs that radio have absolutely hammered!

Both could work as Rumbas or Waltzes, I suppose.

I was surprised they didn't use Emile Sande last year.....given her prominence at the Olympics and generally on tv/radio. I know she's not everyone's cup of tea and some people think she's over exposed but I like her so I hope at least one of her tracks is used this year.

Just a bit of a moan....... I like Adele and I wanted 'Rumour has it' to be used because I felt it really suited a tango, however I think her music has been used far too much over the past few series and last year was overkill with them using 3 tracks of hers for different celeb dances............the same with Beyonce.......3 tracks of hers were used - two of them for Kimberely's dances.

I think if they're going to use modern music they should vary the artists used.

I agree with you Topaz. I like having a mix of modern music and traditional music, I'm not one of those fuddy duddies who want only traditional music to be danced to as I understand completely how that wouldn't be a good idea. However, I also don't want to watch Kimberley Walsh dancing to the same artist twice.

So that Pasha cant use a Beyoncé track again, I think Beyoncé tracks should be banned on SCD...

I'm surprised they didn't use a One Direction song, although they probably didn't want to give Cowell the promotion. Personally I'm not complaining.

" Tangled Up " by Caro Emerald will surely be chosen for an Argentine Tango.

If it's true that Julien Macdonald is in the line up I guess they could use 'Fashion' by David Bowie......I think it would suit a tango?

I know it's 30 odd years old so not a 'recent' song but still very 'contemporary' sounding.

Not at all recent but I'm surprised we haven't seen a Quickstep to Mr Blue Sky by the Electric Light Orchestra, it's one of those songs that everyone knows.
