Here are the Taylor Dayne songs you need to know:

'Tell It To My Heart'

If you had to pick one Taylor Dayne hit to take to the desert island, this would be it. This propulsive dance track introduced the singer to the world as the title track of her 1988 debut album.

'Prove Your Love'

Another hard-charging dancefloor favorite, “Prove Your Love” was another hit off the singer’s debut album. It was bolstered by an MTV music video choreographed with help from Paula Abdul.

'Love Will Lead You Back'

Lest anyone think that Dayne can’t handle a big melodramatic ballad, this Diane Warren-penned hit from the singer’s 1989 sophomore release, “Can’t Fight Fate,” checks that crucial pop-star box. Expect to see couples slow dancing if/when it makes the Daytona Beach set list.

'With Every Beat of My Heart'

Another frisky offering from the ‘Can’t Fight Fate’ album, this song is a high-energy 1980s pop gem in that gives Whitney Houston’s hits a run for the money. The song enjoyed a resurgence a few years ago when Raphael Tate reimagined it in an extended remix.

'Can't Get Enough of Your Love'

Dayne put her stamp on this Barry White classic that she recorded with help from the members of C+C Music Factory. With C+C’s Freedom Williams on the bill Saturday, the song could surface at the show.
