Subject: Everybody Dance Now! - Dance Hits 1987-2000 (Volume 1) [LAST ANSWERS REVEALED]

Written By: Henk on 09/10/12 at 2:07 pm

Probably not everybody's cup of tea, but I still decided to give it a try.
If you went clubbing in the late 1980s and throughout the 1990s,
there's a good chance you've heard these tunes.

The years in the background are mere indications and do not always represent
the exact year the song hit the clubs (or charts).

Limit = ∞ to start with. Hope you have fun!


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=okhpBm-bGo4





Hints!

08. The original was performed by Reese & Santonio, but it was promptly covered by this ‘band’ (just over a century).

18. We all see through them every day. The artist is what you call your brother’s wife (in short).

23. Two capitol cities, separated by the Atlantic. You need a spoon to eat this.

29. The song title may refer to the events in the Garden of Eden. It is, among other things, also the name of a
      1990 movie (about Jim and Tammy Faye Baker), a punk rock band that debuted in 2004, a novel by
      Andrew M. Greely, and a song from Amanda Marshall’s debut album.
      But that’s just the title. The artist is twofold: Inuit visiting the pyramids.
      The song peaked at #51 in UK.

30. This song,  produced by Will Mount and Rollo, peaked at #9 in UK. It was the follow-up to “I Lift My Cup”.
      The singer’s real name is Sedric Johnson but his stage name may be a deliberate misspelling of a bioluminescent fly or beetle.

38. A tough one,  this. Everything will turn out fine with the title.
      The artists only had one other song that’s worth a mention: “DJ, Take Me Away” (feat. Balthazar).
      I’m sure that’ll help… ::)

39. The Flirts and Rod Stewart had songs with the same title, but that’s all those songs had in common.
      The name of the act is derived from an anagram of Tag Records (minus two letters). This tune peaked at #29 in UK.

40. This is my favorite song from this quiz. The singer is best known for “Young Hearts Run Free”, a #20 hit in US and a #2 hit
      in UK (1976). This is another song, though, never intended to be released as a single.
      It was firstly released in 1986, remixed by an anonymous producer.
      It was again remixed in 1991, 1997 and 2006 by John Truelove.
      The latter three reached #’s 4, 3 and 7 in UK respectively
.

Okay... just for the record, I know more than four of these, so I need to decide which of those I should answer.

Here goes:

#4 is "What's On Your Mind (Pure Energy)" by Information Society.
#15 is "Get Ready For This" by 2 Unlimited.
#26 is "Show Me Love" by Robin S.
#35 is "The Bomb" by the Bucketheads.

The awesome thing about this quiz is that you don't have to have been born at any particular time to have a good shot at it. Great walk through 13 years of dance music.

10) Rebel MC - Street Tuff
16) KLF - Last Train to Trancentral
17) Shamen - Move Any Mountain
25) Utah Saints - New Gold Dream (81-82-83-84)

The depressing thing about this quiz is I can tell roughly when I cut back on the clubbing.

Excellent quiz as always Henk, thanks for putting this together. Dance music is not particularly an area of expertise for me but there are some great songs in here.

#14 I Can't Dance - Beatmasters featuring Betty Boo
#25 Open Your Mind - U.S.U.R.A
#37 Professional Widow - Armand van Helden / Tori Amos
#44 We Like To Party! - Venga Boys  (I guess you just had to include this one Henk  ;))

Thanks, Graham (and everyone else, of course). I've deliberately picked songs that, for the most part, not only did well in clubs but also hit mainstream. As for the rest... well, we got Jason and maybe Midas or Foo Bar.

I can't give you full points for these four, as #14 is partially incorrect. I'll give you Betty Boo, but it's not the right song.

No, not that tune.

Or maybe it is... Heavy sampling was used for this tune, and I read Aretha Franklin's vocals were used/sampled as well. But I'm not sure what Aretha song they initially used (in later recordings, the vocals were rerecorded using an anonymous singer).

I thought I recognised Aretha's voice there. 
I've heard #7 at clubs often  (way back when) ..I just don't know what it is. I didn't even know who the artist was back in 1989, so I won't even guess now! (Thinking it's not Dan Fogelberg...haha)
Great quizzes Henk.

Great call on #25 - I knew the track and completely missed it. Least I can do is return the favor!

#14 Betty Boo - Doin' the Do (second choice: Boo is Booming? Where Are You Baby? She's like AC/DC - it all sounds alike in my mind - I'm going with Doin' the Do.)

And of course you're right: I nicked it from said Megamix. I thought it would make a nice opener.

So - is the cover art in that YouTube video accurate?  Let's just say I've heard the mix and remember it, but don't remember the cover art :)


Alrighty... the limit has been removed.


#8 I'll take a guess as either Techno Twins - Dream of XTC? (It's them or Fire on High floating in a dream of it.)
#22 NUKE - Nana (sampling the "oh-na-na" from LA Style's I'm Raving.)

I'm pretty sure about #22, not at all sure about #8. 

Gotta punt on #7 - sound and timeframe are vaguely New Beat / Belgian Beat to me, but the best (and worst) thing about that genre was that all the songs sounded mostly alike, and nobody did more than one album.

I think that does it for me, so I concede to whistledog who's still in the lead even if I'm right on both #8 and #22!

It is entirely possible that the others did not make it in Northern America, I'm not sure.


So - is the cover art in that YouTube video accurate?  Let's just say I've heard the mix and remember it, but don't remember the cover art :)


I can't say. I don't have the CD single or 12" of that particular mix. It was included in a series of 25 Turn Up The Bass CD's, released by Arcade between 1989 and 1993 - originally only available in The Netherlands, I believe. Additional CD's were released in 1997 and 2001 (and maybe more that I don't know of).



#8 I'll take a guess as either Techno Twins - Dream of XTC? (It's them or Fire on High floating in a dream of it.)


It's neither, I'm afraid.


#22 NUKE - Nana (sampling the "oh-na-na" from LA Style's I'm Raving.)

Just for you: the artist is noble gas, commonly used to make light signs (words and letters) on buildings. The song has no lyrics, although the title suggests the use of spoken word.

Ah yes, found the song on youtube from your hint. I either heard this several times in Canada, or when I spent 4 weeks in Europe during the spring of 1989.

Yes, that's correct. I'm glad my hint proved helpful.

Now who shall I give the point to? It's clear that warped found the song before Foo Bar, but I'm assuming he forgot to post the right answer.
You know what - you both get a point. 8)


Thanks Henk, the reason I didn't post the answer is I'd never heard of the group or title before, but it was fairly obvious from your hint. I do know the song, but never was aware of the artist or title. I think FooBar was though.

I'm glad this quiz has helped you. :)

I fully understand your problem, though. Putting a name to an instrumental is always challenging. Either you know, or you'll probably never find out. Unless of course I put it in a quiz.

#40 I know "Young hearts run free". Candy Station. Quite a popular song back then.  Don't know the #40 song though.

The singer is Candi Staton, that's right.

#30 just came to me.  I knew I recognized it.  It is Carry Me Home by Gloworm.  That hint about the bioluminescent fly did it for me.

Indeed it is. Although strictly speaking, it is the Now Voyager remix of that song, as to distinguish it from all the other remixes around.

Also correct. :)

23. Two capitol cities, separated by the Atlantic. You need a spoon to eat this.



Oops... :-two capitol cities - only one of them is (and at least one of our members resides there). The other just happens to be the largest city of the country (and at least two of our members reside there).

Gat Decor's Passion.  I knew that one was a bit familiar.  That song is on one of the UK 'Now That's What I Call Music' CDs that I own, but I forget which one lol

A Fantastic quiz Henk.  I anxiously await Volume 2 8)

I only just found out that the version that made UK charts has vocals, whereas the version that I'm familiar with (posted above) is completely instrumental. That might have added to the confusion.
