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.
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

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.
OVER AND OVER
This is the only song that was taken from her second album, LIKE A VIRGIN (1984).Read more ›
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).Read more ›
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!

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. Read morePublished on June 7 2004 by Monica Daneshrad
