Subject: Top 40 Dance Hits of the 90s

Written By: Retrolover on 08/05/19 at 12:37 pm

What are some top 40 dance hits from the 1990s that you miss hearing and you can still dance to?

For me:

Basia - Until You Come Back to Me (That's What I'm Gonna Do)

N1woHA4Wf94

This video and song is so 1990. Ah…when we first arrived in the 90s.... Made a big deal about being in the 90s for the first month or so of 1990 then “future” talk erupted. Still, this was when the 90s took themselves seriously. Everything was better then… :\'(

^ I don't know that one, but I do know "Cruising For Bruising", another hit that she had in 1990. That one is dancy in a sense. But it is a great song. 8)

It’s a cover of the Aretha Franklin song, but with a hipper late 80s and early 90s jazzy beat to it.

I love “Cruising For a Bruising”, but Basia was overshadowed by Sinead ‘O Connor over here. Basia was a bigger deal in Europe between 1987 to 1990 than she was in the US.

Here are some other ones I know:

Beats International - Dub Be Good to Me

I liked it better than “Just Be Good to Me” by the SOS Band.

Soho - Hippychick

The late 60s were chic again in the early 90s. This song was rereleased in the late 90s also, if I’m not mistaken.

Soho - Hippychick


I liked that one. It borrowed the exact intro riff from "How Soon Is Now" by the Smiths; what breaks the "copy" here is the techno-beat starting a few seconds in. I also think that band was a one hit wonder.

And by the way, "Hippychick" was from the year 1990.
