'So You Think You Can Dance': Top 8 Performance Music
Often times, fans of So You Think You Can Dance try to find out what songs their favorite dancers performed to and wonder where they can get this music.  Never fear, I'm here with a complete recap of the music featured on this week's performance episode.

Sara and Danny kicked off Wednesday night's performance with an Argentine Tango choreographed by Alex da Silva.  He chose "Whatever Lola Wants (Gotan Project Remix)" by Sara Vaughn featuring Gotan Project.  Musical theater fans might recognize the song.  It's originally from the musical Damn Yankees.  Sarah Vaughn, nicknamed "The Divine One," is an American jazz singer.  The song is currently available on ITunes off the Gotan Project's album, Verve Remixed.

Lauren and Dominic got down 'n' dirty with a krump routine choreographed by Lil 'C.  Their routine was set to 50 Cent's "I Get Money."  The song is a hot new track off his upcoming album Curtis, set for a September 11 release date.

After that, Lacey and Neil spiced up the dance floor with a Latin jazz routine choreographed by Maria Torres.  They danced to Ray Barretto's "Acid."  Barretto was a famous New York City jazz musician and fans can find this track off his double disc greatest hits album, Best of Ray Barretto.

Sabra and Pasha finished round one with a Broadway routine choreographed by Tyce DiOrio and set to "A Wild, Wild Party" from the Off-Broadway hit, The Wild Party.  The show was a short-lived but critically acclaimed musical in 2000, starring Toni Collette (The Sixth Sense, Little Miss Sunshine).  The soundtrack is available on Amazon.

For round two, Danny and Sara returned for a Shane Sparks hip hop routine to Salt-N-Pepa's "Push It."  They are a Grammy-nominated trio who have sold over 10 million albums worldwide.  In 1986, "Push It" helped their debut album Hot, Cool, and Vicious soar to Platinum status.  Other well known songs of theirs include, "Let's Talk About Sex," "Shoop," and "Whatta Man."

Lauren and Dominic came back to give us a sexy rumba routine choreographed by Tony Meredith.  He chose "Ain't No Sunshine" by Bill Withers for their piece.  The song can be found on his 1971 album, Just As I Am though the song has been covered by many musical acts including: Al Green, Otis Redding, Sting, Maroon 5, and even Michael Jackson.

Lacey and Neil danced a very personal contemporary routine by Mia Michaels to the song "Time" by Billy Porter.  A former winner of Star Search, Billy Porter has been seen over the years in many Broadway show such as Miss Saigon, Grease, and Dreamgirls.  The song "Time" can be found on his album Live From Joe's Pub.

Sabra and Pasha danced a quickstep in round two choreographed by Tony Meredith and set to Big Bad Voodoo Daddy's "Mr. Pinstripe Suit."  In the late '90s, swing came back with a vengeance with Big Bad Voodoo Daddy at the helm along with Brian Setzer Orchestra and Cherry Poppin' Daddies.  Other songs to check out include "Go Daddy-O" and "You and Me and the Bottle Makes Three Tonight."  Featured in the hit movie Swingers, you can find their songs off their self-titled album.

That's it for this week.  Check back next week for all the music info your little heart desires.
