Catch-Up 2019 | The Biggest Dance Songs of the Year…So Far!

Pop art lady WOW! Catch-up 2019It’s time for the annual Catch-Up! Just in time for the summer season, this series allows you to catch up with the biggest dance club hits of the year. As a bonus, I’ve thrown in some newer tracks that are just now gaining momentum and will likely soon be everywhere.

Ariana Grande is the clearcut winner for the most hits with “Thank U, Next” carrying over from last year along with “7 Rings,” and “Break Up with Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored.”

One of the most striking trends I’m seeing is classic-pop remakes. While sampling past hits have been a staple of artists going back to the 90s, remaking full tracks has not. In this set, we have a total of 5 remakes that include: “Self Control” by Kendra Erika (originally a Top 3 hit for Laura Branigan in 1984),  Hilary Roberts’ “Back To Life” (originally a #1 hit for Soul II Soul featuring Caron Wheeler in 1989), “Fired Up” by Jade Starling (originally a #1 dance club hit for Funky Green Dogs in 1996), “The Rhythm of the Night” by Sean Finn & Corona (originally a #11 pop hit and #1 dance club hit for Corona in 1993 who re-sung the vocals for this release),  “I’ve Been Thinking About You” by Klaas and Londonbeat (originally a #1 pop and dance club hit for Londonbeat in 1989 who re-sung the vocals for this release), “Bittersweet Symphony” by Gamper & Dadoni featuring Emily Roberts (originally a #1 pop and alternative hit in 1997), and “Jump” by Van Halen and Armin Van Buuren (originally a #1 pop and rock hit in 1984). The one that did not make the cut is “You Gotta Be” by Bombs Away featuring Reigan, which was originally a #5 hit for Des’ree in 1995 but didn’t quite capture the essence of the original.

This is quite a grab bag of influences artists are delving into as they represent a wide variety of genres. At the end of the day, a great song is still a great song.

I realize this set has been a long time coming but it’s finally here and there is enough to fuel your parties through July before I start dropping some new dance club on you. I’m currently wrapping up the annual installment of Beach House and will start working on the next Underground House set shortly. As you can see, there’s plenty in the works.

Until the next time…ENJOY!
