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

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.
SPOTLIGHT
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?
HOLIDAY
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.
EVERYBODY
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.
PHYSICAL ATTRACTION
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).

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).

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!

"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.
