Product Description


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

4.0 out of 5 stars Vintage Madonna. May 1 2004
Format:Audio CD
"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.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Before And After review Dec 21 2003
By Da Man
Format:Audio CD
to get something out for the 1987 holiday season, Madonna released the perennial dance favorite, You Can Dance.
At this point, Madonna can do no wrong. Sh'd already conquered the world of pop, and had 2 sellout tours behind her. Following the Who's That Girl tour, she took a needed break.
A Madonna remix album was inevitable. She singlehanded brought dance music back from the disco backlash. Even without much promotion and a unofficial single that got some radio airplay (Spotlight), the album still managed to go platinum and peak at #14. Yes, #14 is low for Madonna, but this is not a studio album.
A must-own for any fan of 80's dance music. Shep Pettibone specially remixed every song for this collection (so those of you who have the 12" to Everybody, this is a different mix). If you aren't a big fan of remixes, especially if you dislike the "Extended Versions", stay away from this. But if you love to dance and get nostalgic, look no further.

5.0 out of 5 stars You Can Dance (1987) Sept. 17 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is the first of four compilation albums Madonna has made. This album says that clubs all over the world love Madonna's music. This album is awesome.
The first single from the album. Unfortunately this single was only released in Japan. This song is the only new song that Madonna had cut 4 the album. The song is brilliant. First off, it makes a great dance song. Everybody should B able 2 get up and dance 2 this one. Secondly, the song has a meaning. It's about reaching 4 U'R goals in life. How in the hell does this woman come up with the creative ideas?
This was originally from MADONNA (1983), her debut album. It was the third single from that album. The song was remixed and extended from 6 minutes and 10 seconds to 6 minutes and 25 seconds. The song is a Madonna song all the way. No DJ can refuse 2 play this one. Great music. And she is right: We all need HOLIDAY.
This is another song taken from her debut album, MADONNA (1983). This was actually Madonna's first single. Again, the song was remixed. Yes it is also extended, it went from being a 4 minute and 52 second song 2 a 6 minute and 15 second remix. This is definitely a great party song. Basically because she encourages EVERYBODY 2 get up and dance. Great beats.
This is the final song from the album that was taken off of the debut album, MADONNA (1983). This was never a single. It just made a great dance-club kinda song. The original song reached 6 minutes and 35 seconds. This version is only 6 minutes and 25 seconds. It's only ten seconds shorter and a little remixed but it's still an awesome tune 2 dance 2.
This is the only song that was taken from her second album, LIKE A VIRGIN (1984).

4.0 out of 5 stars 80's Grooves Aug. 30 2003
By Vilbs
Format:Audio CD
Regardless of how the remixing on "You Can Dance" sounds compared to the remix discs of 2003, this really is a groundbreaking disc. Admittedly, most of the songs here are not DRAMATICALLY different from those appearing on her studio albums, but they have all been jazzed up enough to merit a second listen. Leave it to Madonna to begin a trend, and the fact that remix discs are so common nowadays can be traced right back here. As with many things, Madonna did it first, and she did it pretty darned well. The production on this album, admittedly 80's, is still very smooth, and the original tracks (not including the bonus songs) run together quite nicely and form a cohesive, beat laden album that is quite danceable.
The album material consists mostly of songs taken from her first three massively successful albums "Madonna", "Like a Virgin" and "True Blue", and includes the song "Spotlight" which is not available on any other disc. "Holiday", "Physical Attraction", and "Everybody" all sound great, and it's very easy to get "Into the Groove" while listening to this disc. "You Can Dance" is reccomended for any fan of the Material Girl in need of some great tunes to dance to.
