Each and every song that spans this series (like the initial seven that were posted) was a massive dance floor hit and reached the number one spot on Billboard's Club Music Charts with one exception, Funk Boutique by the Cover Girls.
If several of these songs sound remotely familiar even though this may not be your era, it's because they've been heavily sampled in today's dance music. Deskee's Dance Dance is a good example of that. In fact, I just stumbled on to the original sample that it was using from a very obscure early 80's track, which I have now forgotten. It's killing me because I just heard it a few days ago and forgot to make a mental note of it.
It just goes to show that what's old is new again and the recycling of classics disco cuts heavily influences what you hear today. All the more reason I think Madonna should go back to her roots for her next album and stop chasing after whatever the latest sound is. I think it would be HUGE for her if she embraced her earliest work and modernized it for today's dance floors but I'm just one voice with an opinion.
I've got two more of these going up this week before I launch into the 2017 Jingle Electric. In fact, I plan on making your head spin with the number of releases coming out in the next couple of weeks so hold tight because they'll be coming at you fast and furious! Until the next time...ENJOY!
