Hi all - I've been building up my collection of dance singles and I'm looking for inspiration as to what to get next... ideas welcomed from all so tell us about your absolute favourites from years gone by.

Nothing too old though if you don't mind, the earliest I have at the moment is the Theme From S'Express and I don't particularly want to go any further back than that.

Here's what I've included within my collection so far - I've always been really interested in electronic music and I'm hoping to build it up to be a good representation of dance music over the years, I've probably focussed a lot on trance so far because of me being about 18 during that era - I feel like I could do with expanding other genres of dance now. Possibly even expanding into some earlier tracks that helped form dance music as we know it today. Similarly I'm light on tracks post 2000ish so I wouldn't mind recommendations from later eras also (despite the name of this forum!)

I'm steering away from indie-dance like Prodigy and Chemical Brothers at the moment simply because I have most of their albums already - although I may look to add a couple from those types of acts for the sake of completeness - plus they're very expensive usually which puts me off!!!

I would have to go with my holy 1995 trilogy:

Snap feat. Summer - The First, The Last, Eternity ('Til The End)



Grace - It's Not Over Yet



Jam & Spoon - Right In The Night (Fall In Love With Music)



These all take me back to the hot sunny summer of 1995 biggrin.gif

This is a GREAT shout. Plus it made me look up the vinyl, which was ridiculously priced so I passed... which prompted me to search for a compilation with it on and I stumbled across this:

https://xlrecordings.com/buy/variousartists...ycloseattention

Which has the most amazing tracklist so I've bought it for not much more than the single would have set me back, WHAT A LABEL wub.gif

Nothing too old?

Surely you could allow “Promised Land” by Joe Smooth ! I still listen to this absolute classic at least once a month, never fails to make me feel in a better mood instantly.

Promised land is a nice one, not sure I’ve heard that before but I like!

Out of the others listed by you kind folk, I’m most tempted to try to source N-Joi, Grace, Xpansions, Olive, The Shamen and Bassomatic

The Style Council did a hit cover of this song, not as dancey but not a bad version

Not sure!!! It clearly didn’t leave a lasting impression if I did biggrin.gif

(just checked and I gave it nil points in the semi and final... which in itself is quite unusual for me as I usually point cumulonimbia)
