The 10 Best songs to dance Bachata

Have you ever tried dancing to bachata music? If not, I suggest you learn the dance as quickly as possible and enjoy the ten best bachata songs ever!




21. Faded (Dark Bachata Version) – Marco Lopetuso

Very interesting version of Alan Walkers super hit “Faded”. Very intense and slow melody, certainly an unusual Bachata song. But nonetheless will lead to nice Bachata dancing.

“Where are you now
Atlantis
Under the sea
Under the sea
Where are you now
Another dream
The monsters running wild inside of me
I’m faded
I’m faded
So lost, I’m faded
I’m faded
So lost, I’m faded ”


20. Dile al Amor – Aventura

Not the only Aventura song in this ranking of the best bachata hits. But certainly a classic.

“Dile al amor que no es grato en mi vida
Dale mi despedida, cuéntale las razones

Cupido no entiendo si la suerte me odia
Y me ha dado de herencia la fortuna del desamor
Y te pido disculpas, pero no aciertas una
Mis febreros son largos aunque no sea tu intención”


19. Casi Casi – Toby Love

Toby Love is a well known Bachata artist and for me this is his best work.

“Que casi me entrego
Casi respiro
Todo sea aliento
Casi te miro tan cerquitica
Que casi siento mil cosquillitas dentro muy dentro
Casi te digo cuanto me gustas
Yo casi miento
Casi preguntas que si yo siento amor por ti
Yo casi digo sí, yo casi digo sí”


18. Fallin`- DJ Khalid & Yogo

In 2001 Soul superstar Alicia Keys released her beautiful ballad Fallin` and conquered the world. Who would have thought, that in 2019 this song could be turned into a great Bachata song? Works very well, a little up-tempo compared to the original version.

“I keep on fallin’
In and out of love
With you
Sometimes I love ya
Sometimes you make me blue
Sometimes I feel good
At times I feel used
Lovin’ you darlin’
Makes me so confused”


17. Te Vas – Grupo Extra

Check out Ataca / La Alemanna dancing to this song on YouTube!

“Y hoy te vas!
te vas, te vas, te vas
pero se que por algo
me has de recordar”


16. Don`t Be So Shy (Bachata Version) – Marco Lopetuso

Another great Bachata version by  Lopetuso. Hope he will turn more mainstream hits into Bachata songs.

“Take off your clothes
Blow out the fire
Don’t be so shy

You’re right
You’re right
Take off my clothes
Oh bless me father”


15. Corazon sin cara – Prince Royce

Released in 2010 this song received the Billboard Latin Music Award for Tropical Song of the Year and therefore has to be among the top bachata songs.

“Y si eres gorda o flaca
Todo eso no me importa a mí
Y tampoco soy perfecto
Sólo sé que te quiero así”


14. Obsession – Aventura

Obsession was a huge smash hit in 2002 even in Europe!

“Now it ain’t love. lo que tu sientes se llama obsesion.
una ilusion, that plays with your mind and makes you take action
when you’re obsessed that’s how it goes.”

13. Careless whisper – Grupo Extra

George Michael`s original version is great, this remix as bachata music is amazing!

“Yo nunca volveré a bailar,
Si no es contigo no hay motivo
Y aunque vas el disimular tu sabes no es lo mismo
Nunca te dejaré de amar, porqué sin ti estoy perdido
Es que nunca seré jamás lo que yo fué contigo”


12. Borracho Y loco – Toque DKeda

Kind of an unusual choice, not that often used on parties, but it works very well with this kind of dance and is one of the top bachata songs to dance to.

“Y yo estoy aquí
borracho y loco
y mi corazón idiota
siempre brillará,
y yo te amaré”


11. Eres Mia Letra – Romeo Santos

Among the most popular bachata songs for years, rather quiet and slow, with a fantastic chorus.

“No te asombres
Si una noche
Entro a tu cuarto y nuevamente te hago mía
Bien conoces
Mis errores
El egoísmo de ser dueño de tu vida
Eres mía (mía mía)
No te hagas la loca eso muy bien ya lo sabias”


10. Stand by me – Prince Royce

Ben E. King`s  classic hit from 1961 adapted to fit the sensual bachata music moves.

“And darling, darling stand by me, oh stand by me
Oh stand, junto a mi, junto a mi”


9. Me Puedo Matar – Bachata Heightz feat. Hactor Acosta

Timeless Latin super hit song!

“Bachata Heightz:
y ya no se que pasara cuando vea que en verdad te vas
mi corazon no va aguantar, y va dejar de palpitar
y tengo miedo cometer un delito, porque hasta me puedo matar”


8. Me Emborrachare – Grupo Extra

Another Bachata classic hit, Grupo Extra`s best song!

“Me emborracharé,
me emborracharé
Por tu culpa,
por tu culpa
Me emborracharé,
me emborracharé
Es mi culpa,
es mi culpa
Me emborrachare por ti mami
Ay Dios
Grupo Extra”


7. Jasmine – Grupo Rush

An insider tip, not that well known in the Bachata community. A little faster, but very cool!

“I got a picture in my head
Of me and you again,
And its killing me so bad
(Oh)
And you ain’t there; And its getting me all scared,
’cause in my heart I really care; and I don’t think this love is
Fair it?s crazyyy.”


6. Tu – Dustin Ritchie

“Tú eres la mujer
La que tanto he soñado
Tú, la que hace parar mi reloj
Tú, eres mi bebé
Ven quedate a mi lado
Tú, que yo quiero darte mi amor”


5. Uno Mas – Croma Latina

I noticed this song while watching some bachata lessons in a club in Israel on youtube. It works so well with the two girl`s dance moves: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oHscwuGyfDE

4. Hilito – Romeo Santos

One of the most popular Latin singers with one of his best bachata songs.

Sin ti me he convertido en un bufon
El payaso del salón
Miento cuando digo odiarte
Yo que privaba en vencedor
Quien ganaba en el amor
Y me diste jaque mate”


3. Hello Daniel Santacruz

Maybe the most beautiful slow Bachata song ever! I have had the most beautiful Bachata dances to this song. Should be standard on every playlist and party!!!


“Hello, hello, dijiste adiós, yo escuché Hello
Hello, la soledad me besa en la noche,
solo habla de ti…
Hello, una mentira que te corrompe,
no te deja huir”


2. Propuesta Indecente – Romeo Santos

Among with the number 1 bachata song, Propuesta Indecente is probably the most well-known and most played Bachata song of all times! It`s catchy, beautiful, intense, romantic and cool at the same time. One of my all time favourites for sure.


“Una aventura es más divertida
Si huele a peligro

Si te invito a una copa
Y me acerco a tu boca
Si te robo un besito
A ver, ¿te enojas conmigo?
¿Qué dirías si esta noche
Te seduzco en mi coche?
Que se empañen los vidrios
Y la regla es que goces”


1. Te extrano – Xtreme

The first place was never in doubt. Ever since I saw Tanja La Alemana and Jorge Ataca dancing to this beautiful bachata song, I can`t get enough of it. Check out their viral youtube hit video and you`ll know what I mean! Certainly the number one of the most popular bachata songs of all time.

“Te amo y te extraño quiero verte junto a mi
Abrasados de las manos y estar junto a ti
Pero me mata la conciencia el saber que no esta aqui
O baby why you gotta be doing this to me”




So do you agree? Or can you think of other top bachata songs that I should try dancing to?
