As Korean artist's PSY's "Gangnam Style" takes the world by storm.

I decided to compile 7 songs that inspired the newest dance craze.

7 - Stanky Leg:

6 - Cotton Eye Joe:

5 - Cupid Shuffle:

4 - Teach Me How to Dougie:

3 - Electric Slide: (There are many renditions of this song and many videos to follow. So here's a video to teach you how to electric slide)

2 - Macarena:

1 - Cha Cha Slide: (This takes the number 1 spot because the song tells you dance moves)

An honorable mention goes to the Pee Wee Herman Tequila dance: While the dance brings attention to the song, it doesn't necessarily follow the theme of a song inspiring a dance craze to make the list. Thanks to News10 Producer Tim Wells (@tlwells2) for the suggestion.

In case you don't know Gangnam Style, here's the video
