Product Description

This 1987 release-a remix album of past hits-reached #14 on the Billboard charts and capitalized on Madonna's growing status as pop icon. Includes Spotlight; Physical Attraction; Over and Over; Where's the Party ; dub and remix versions of Holiday and Into the Groove , and more.

Amazon.com

You can dance and you probably will if you put on this 1987 compilation of the material girl's best jams. The eight-and-a-half minute "Into the Groove," remixed by Shep Pettibone, may be Madonna's single best tune and it's sure to fill the dance floor. There are only 10 tracks here, and a couple of songs get multiple remixes, but you do get "Holiday" and "Everybody," lesser known but not lesser grooves. Madonna had a few dance hits after this collection came out, and one day they'll most likely be a Madonna dance box set, but until then this will give you a fine aerobic workout. --Charles R. Cross

You Can Dance is without a doubt Madonna's most underrated album. It has sold 5 million copies worldwide, which is a flop in Madonna's usual sales. It was released in 1987 and features 10 remixes of some of Madonna's best loved and most popular 80's hits from her first three albums, Madonna, Like A Virgin and True Blue. It may not seem it, but You Can Dance is a ground-breaking piece of work. Madonna had the confidence to put out a remix album. She was the first artist to ever release one, and it sold 5 million - not bad for a few songs that have been changed a bit. You Can Dance has inspired many artists and bands of today to release remix albums such as Jennifer Lopez.

The album starts with Spotlight (10/10). This rare track is only available on You Can Dance and is a classic Madonna song. You can instantly tell which era of Madonna's career it's from because of the brilliant instruments and clear vocals that only suited Madonna in the 1980's. Spotlight is remixed by Jellybean and produced by Stephen Bray and is a fantastic song to open the album with. This is the type of song you could just imagine being played on holiday in a bar in somewhere like Spain or Greece! A holiday classic! Speaking of holidays...Holiday is Track 2! This has to be one of Madonna's most famous songs ever. This classic was her first single, but the remix doesn't sound very different to the album version. It lasts for 6.32 minutes though, so you get your money's worth! Most of the songs on You Can Dance are continual; when one song is finishing, the next track is starting. You just know when Holiday is starting because of the legendary 7 chimes. And at a clap of her hands, Track 2 is well underway! Madonna's very first single, Everybody (8/10), which was not released as a single, is the next track.

If I'm not wrong the interesting thing about these remixes is that they were remixed by the actual producers, so they don't fall far from the great originals. And very imporatantly it's not an anonymous remix album like it was trendy these last years, it's on the contrary a great idea. None of these tracks were ever actually remixed before (as it's customary these days), except a 9-minute long 'Everybody' Dub. So of course it's great. I'm sure I'm not the only one who would love to get my hands on original 12" mixes of 80s songs, because loving the normal version, the exteded 12" mix is more of it and allows a full presentation of the work .Just think about Donna Summer's 'Love To Love You Baby': 17 minutes edited down to not even 4! In the 80s 7-8 minutes was regular Extended Mix. How can you not like this cd?. The original B-Side of this album (Groove/Over/Party) is very different from the A-side. It's more upbeat and very 80s dance. Can you keep from dancing? After you listen to it you realise how appropriate the title is. The first song presented here, and the only new song, is 'Spotlight'. I think it agrees perfectly with this concept album. You CAN Dance, and you must.

"You Can Dance" is the very first Madonna retrospective album. Instead of releasing a package of all of her singles, Madonna did something groundbreaking, she released a remix album.
The title "You Can Dance" is taken from the very first line of the song "Into the Groove" : And you can dance for inspiration. And this album inspired other artists to follow suit, putting out their own remix albums.
Unlike other artists like Milli Vanilli and Paula Abdul who quickly put out remix albums which lifted tracks straight out from 12" singles, Madonna took popular album tracks (Over And Over, WHere's the Party) and singles (Everybody, Holiday, Into the Groove) which hasn't been remixed before, as well as slapping on a brand new song (Spotlight) as a bonus. What is even more unique is that the songs are segued into one long continuous grind, with the first half consisting of Spotlight - Holiday - Everybody - Physical Attraction. On the case of Physical Attraction, it is exactly as it appear on her first album, except that it segued with the ending of Everybody. The second half have Over and Over - Into the Groove - Where's the Party.
As an incentive to buy various formats, the CD have three dub versions : Holiday, Into the Groove and Where's the Party.
The cassette has four dubs, Holiday, Into the Groove, Spotlight, and Over and Over.
The vinyl version do not have the dubs at all, just the main tracks.
As expected, these remixed versions actually improved upon the songs. Holiday, Where's the Party, Into the Groove as it appear here are the versions that Madonna performs onstage.

READ CAREFULLY BEFORE BUY! . The Audio CD edition, contains three dubs that was "bonus tracks". But the Audio Cassette, Contains the RARE dub of the song "SPOTLIGHT" that was the only new song to this Album. If you got already the CD, I recommend that shop the Cassette TOO!

"You Can Dance" is a snapshot of classic, vintage Madonna, a mix CD of her most popular dance hits back in the 1980s. Some would dismiss this CD, which was released in the fall of 1987, as a transparent cash-in, but it works surprising well as a dance record, even if the production does sound a bit dated. The kickoff, "Spotlight," is one of Madonna's very best songs, an underrated track that's strong enough to be released as a single. Fans will certainly be bobbing their heads to the beat in approval. The 12-inch versions of "Physical Attraction" and "Everybody" are gems that remind us of Madonna's r&b roots, while the extended mix of "Into the Groove" is even better than the edited version of the classic single. In addition, the CD version of "You Can Dance" has 3 dub versions of "Holiday," "Into the Groove," and "Where's the Party," and, unfortunately, they're all throwaways. It's not that they're terrible, but I think a better choice for a bonus track would have been the extended version of "Open Your Heart" or "Like a Virgin." Still, "You Can Dance" is a can't-fail purchase for both Madonna fans and lovers of 80s dance music. Grade: B.
