The Politics of Dancing on Mon 11/25/19

Back in time today to some of the earliest tracks that charted during my WKDU DJ years and those that were bangers on the dancefloor in the early 1990s; tracks that really defined the era and the American rave culture.
Thank you Gretchen for suggestion Baby D's , Let me be your Fantasy.
"Let Me Be Your Fantasy" originated in 1992 at the height of the rave scene. The song was written and produced by band member Floyd Dyce and the vocals were sung by Dorothy Fearon (also known as Dorothy "Dee" Galdes and Dee Galdes-Fearon). Dyce has said "My idea for Fantasy was to try to develop an original song on top of hard beats: something you could sing along to as you were raving."
MTV Dance placed the song at #13 in their list of The 100 Biggest 90's Dance Anthems Of All Time in November 2011.Sam Richards from The Guardian in 2015 wrote that "Let Me Be Your Fantasy was the biggest crossover hit of the rave era". And in 2018, Mixmag listed "Let Me Be Your Fantasy" as one of The 30 best vocal house anthems ever.

Please feel free to email me to make suggestions. What are the tracks that made you move on the dancefloor? Let me know.
Have a great Thanksgiving!
