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.

When Madonna released this CD in 1987, she was a reigning Queen of Popular Music. With the huge success of "TRUE BLUE" and songs from the soundtrack of "Who's That Girl?", she capitalized on a remix album and added a new song "Spotlight" to it. I believe she is the first female artist to release a remix album of her most danceable songs from her first three studio albums and she does a pretty good job at it. It sold 5 Million copies and probably still counting for all the new Madonna fans.
I play this on my home stereo system with equalizer and it still sounds amazing. Holiday, is a little longer than the studio album version (6:08) and is perhaps one of her most memorable songs ever. A great CD to listen to and a must for all Madonna Fans of her earlier work in the '80s.
SPOTLIGHT (6:23)
HOLIDAY (6:32)
EVERYBODY (6:43)
PHYSICAL ATTRACTION (6:20)
OVER AND OVER (7:11)
INTO THE GROOVE (8:26)
WHERE'S THE PARTY (7:16)
HOLIDAY (Dub Version) (6:56)
INTO THE GROOVE (Dub Version) (6:23)
WHERE'S THE PARTY (Dub Version) (6:20)

The first 7 songs are in continuous play, then the Dub versions are singles by themselves.
The cover photographs are what Madonna looked like at the time. Anyone that saw her music videos of that time period, (1986-1987) knew she had short blonde hair. She then grew it out afterwards for "LIKE A PRAYER" in 1989, returning her to her natural hair color.

As 1987 came to a close, Madonna had had enjoyed much success from her second staring movie role (Who's That Girl) and a number one soundtrack to accompny it. So what better way to close the year, than with the best Madonna Dance Tunes. All of these songs are played in contious sequence, with the expection of the dubs, which means instead of a pause between songs, they just keep going, which is great on the dance floor.

1)Spotlight: the only new song that appeared on this album. This song is so beautiful. It is a "go for your dreams song". The beat is wonderful to dance to and the vocals are gorgeous. Madonna, again outdid herself. 6/5 stars

2)Holiday: This dance version, is very close to the orginal, except they are a few differnt instruments used here and it is about 20 second longer than the album version.

3)Everybody: This version is okay. It is good to dance to, but I like the one that appeared on Madonna- The First Album, the best.

4)Physical Attraction: The only song that did not get "re-done". This version is exactly the same as the orginal. A new, more dance version, would have been great to go on this collection, why it was chosen not to be "re-done" I don't know.

5)Over and Over: The one song on this collection, I don't reallly like that well. I never like the orginal that well, so I am not fond of this one either. The mix was done well, though.

6)Into The Groove: The famous 8:29 version, that everyone is familiar with. This version is very good. I adore it, but the one thing that is done wrong, is that it takes away the sound that made the orginal cut. I love the 1985 version of Into the Groove, it is my favorite and always will be, I wished Shep would have based this version more on the '85 version.
