Q&A: Dance choreography music?

Question by teddileah: Dance choreography music?
My director in Drama class told my class that we have to choose an upbeat song, but it has to be something “melodious” and “tuneful”. I’m not…very sure what he wants. I put on Oh! by Boys Noize and he said that it had too much beat. So…can you help me, please? The song cannot have words. Electronic music would be nice, but anything really is fine 😀 thank you!
