Product Description

Amazon.ca

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 A Few Quintessential Remixes and Some Throwaways July 11 2010
By Kasey G TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Madonna became somewhat of a pioneer yet again in late 1987 when she released an EP of remixes and one previously unreleased track on "You Can Dance".

This release helped satiate the appetite of fans who were hungering for more following her too-sparse contribution to the "Who's That Girl" soundtrack. We would have to wait a year-and-a-half until "Like a Prayer" came out in Spring '89.

The Stephen Bray-produced "Spotlight" opens this collection. It's an uplifting, inspirational track that was supposed to be included on "True Blue" but was rejected. Why they excluded it is anyone's guess, when subpar material like "Jimmy Jimmy" and "Love Makes the World Go Around" made the final cut.

"Spotlight" may have sounded out-of-place on "True Blue" anyhow, since that album had Patrick Leonard's stamp all over it, and the song didn't fit that mold. It's one of Madonna's more underappreciated efforts, sort of a mashup of "Holiday" and "Into the Groove". (Like "Groove", Madonna's voice is double-tracked and sounds great.) It's inclusion makes "You Can Dance" worth getting for this song alone.

Next, we segue seamlessly into "Holiday", which, aside from a few added synth embellishments here and there, and some extra piano and percussion, is basically the version we are all familiar with.

Madonna's first club hit, 1982's "Everybody" follows. It differs from the album version by a hollow-sounding "echo chamber" effect, as well as some Jimmy Jam Harris/Terry Lewis-type percussion underneath that wasn't in the original mix.

The edit that morphs "Everybody" into "Physical Attraction" is probably the smoothest transition (though they all are great).

5.0 out of 5 stars Great workout music Nov. 18 2009
Format:Audio CD
This is a fantastic album. But it's more for music fans who enjoy extended versions, remixes and dubs. If you're into the radio/edited versions and don't really care that much about the instrumentation etc., then this compilation might not be for you.

If you are into remixes etc., then you will love this CD. It's very consistent, the beats are extremely infectious and all the extra elements added are really cool (especially the piano in "Into the Groove"). Madonna's done a good job at bringing club music to the mainstream, and this album focuses her club roots.

I like how most the songs blend into each other, and the dub versions are fun to listen to and are a great addition to this CD!

This is a great compilation of her best dance songs before 1990. You will not find anything new on this album, but all the good dance songs are on it!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Classic 80s Dance Album! July 8 2004
Format:Audio CD
I love this album! Some people complain that the mixes are cheesy and not at par with today's standards. Well, FYI - this album was released in 87! You really can't compare it with Madonna's new mixes of today. In any case, this will always be part of my collection because I really enjoy all the songs. They are upbeat, fun and a great way to re-live the 80s!

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Wonderful June 7 2004
Format:Audio CD
Such a great Madonna CD to have. The first song Spotlight is so much fun and motivational that it puzzles me that it never appeared in any of Madonna's other albums. Also I really like how there's no pausing between the first 5 tracks. A must have!

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.
