Subject: Everybody Dance Now! - Dance Hits 1987 - 2000 Volume 2 [Last Answers Given]

Written By: Henk on 11/23/12 at 3:21 pm

Took quite some time, but here it is...Volume 2 of my Dance Quizzes.
You know the drill by now: give me the title and the artist, and you get a point.
As usual, no cheating allowed (i.e. do not Google the lyrics to find an answer)

The limit is OFF to start with. Have fun!


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lCrX6YX7uJk




Finally...Hints!

05. Song title is much like #04, although maybe a little hotter. The artists are represented twice in this quiz,
      this time teaming up with vocalist Patricia Ann Cole. (She once was one of the Ikettes, and scored hits with the original
      recordings of The First Cut Is The Deepest and Angel Of The Morning)

09. The artists (Paul Carter, Richard Walmsley and Amanda Glanfield) are represented twice in this quiz.
    For other projects, they teamed up with Cookie Crew, Merlin and Betty Boo. This is them solo, chugging down the track.

20. It can be a sweater or hoodie, or a scenic overlook, or a move in gymnastics, or even a traffic stop (by police).
      Either way, it’s a tune by Dutch dj Jochem Paap.

21. The artist had another hit with “Way In My Brain”.

22. Affectionate violins, tied by fine chords (in both senses of the word). The artists real names are Jens Lissat and
      Ramon Zenker. Other songs under this moniker include Who Is Elvis? (cover of the Interactive original),
      Jayjo and He Chilled Out.

23. I can’t give you much hints on this. It’s an Italian project (members:  Corrado Foresti, Luciano Bericchia,
      Marco Frattini, Roberto Biffi). The 1993 follow-up to this song was called “Harmony”.

28. Synthetic resinous substance in REM? Pinch me!
      The artist (an alias of Dutch dj Robin Alders) later co-founded The Sunclub.

29. German producers Jam El Mar (also part of Jam & Spoon) and Dag Lerner, with a song about indigenous
      tribes of the US of A.

30. It's Alright – they’re from Walthamstow.

35. It’s Matt Cantor and Andy Gardner, with vocals by Victoria Newton. Other hits included Inspiration,
      The Morning After (Free At Last) and I Have Peace.

37. Originally a tune called Soleado, in later days rerecorded as When A Child Is Born and Tränen Lügen Nicht.
      This tune is a pimped up version, preserving the title of the latter.
      The artist had an earlier hit with Lovesong (1994).

40. Basically a fortnight by a trio that had another hit with “Flash”.

I can only give you full points for #7, I'm afraid. :( #11 is the right artist, but the wrong song (although I'm the first to admit the songs sound a lot alike!)

I think I knew the sample was taken from the Jimmy Castor Bunch, but it's one of those things I keep forgetting.

That's 3.5 out of a possible 4. Not bad. :)

Of all songs in this quiz, there's only two or three that I know what remix version it is. So I think it unfair to ask of you to name it.

Yeah, let's pump up the jam.  I think I've got 4 more here.

I claim no points on #34 - Reel 2 Real, Go On Move?  (Because my first guess was also I Like To Move It, just because, well, that's why.)


#14 Dirty Cash - Stevie V.


And because the notes I took the other day are proof that I confused the sax at the start of this track for Nomad's Just a Groove. /facepalm.

(Make a note to yourself to remind me what I missed after the quiz if nobody else gets it!)

BTW, I knew I heard some Nomad in there the other night.  Completely wrong track when I got it mixed up the first time, but I knew there was some in there:

#16 - Nomad - (I Wanna Give You) Devotion

Side question to everybody reading this:  You know that "bzzt-bzzt-BZZT-bzz-bzz" thing at 2:24 in Track 13?  Was there ever a word for that 5-note pattern?  Something similar shows up at 3:18 in Track 18.  Off the quiz list, it also shows up around 1:45 into Cappella's Everybody, and something very much like it, is half the backbeat of Twin EQ's I Like Techno, etc. etc. etc.

It's one of the most distinctive sounds of early techno.  Was there ever a word for it so that you could describe it to someone without being able to link to a bucket of YouTube links?

I can't seem to get to writing hints. :-Turn it up (1988).  It uses the same sample that Excessive Force (a KMFDM side project) used as its backbeat for To Death, which came out in 1991.  Does anyone remember the K-Roc track, and/or where either of them got the sample from?

Finally...Hints!

05. Song title is much like #04, although maybe a little hotter. The artists are represented twice in this quiz, this time teaming up with vocalist Patricia Ann Cole. (She once was one of the Ikettes, and scored hits with the original recordings of The First Cut Is The Deepest and Angel Of The Morning)

09. The artists (Paul Carter, Richard Walmsley and Amanda Glanfield) are represented twice in this quiz. For other projects, they teamed up with Cookie Crew, Merlin and Betty Boo. This is them solo, chugging down the track.

29. German producers Jam El Mar (also part of Jam & Spoon) and Dag Lerner, with a song about indigenous tribes of the US of A.


#05: Beatmasters feat. P.P. Arnold, Burn It Up

#09: Beatmasters feat. nobody other than themselves, Ska Train, which sounded a lot like, but wasn't, not Beatmasters ft. MC Merlin, Who's In The House, Beatmasters feat. Cookie Crew, Rok Da House (from the other quiz), definitely not their hat tip to Depeche Mode's cover of Route 66, nor was it PLAY ALL THE BEATMASTERS ANYWAYIWANNA, but I've gotta link to the Beatmasters feat. Betty Boo, Hey DJ (I can't dance to that music you're playing).  Actually, I can dance to the music you're playing, but...

8--T-xHc9nQ

...even if the Boo's doin' the do (and not doin' the Foo), the Boo's always due.  (Ya don't like it?  Sue!)  At least I learned what spells "House", whew!

#29: Dance 2 Trance - Power of American Natives, finally remembered the hushed-voice vocal break that doesn't feature the treble-oriented parts of the rest of the trackread the hint and /facehoofed myself for not getting it the first time.

Foo is fuuming that he didn't #5 and #29 earlier.  #9 I probably wouldn't have gotten until your hint prompted me to think Beatmasters.

Another three for three. :)

...but you still got it wrong. It's not "what" or "whew!", it's AGE-OH-YOU-ESS-EE. :P :D ;)

#28 is 'Plastic Dreams' by Jaydee
#35 is 'U Sure Do' by Strike. 
#40 is 'Seven Days and One Week' by B.B.E.

I knew I recognized #40.  I have all 3 of these on CD single somewhere buried in my closet.  I never woud have gotten them without the hints

20. It can be a sweater or hoodie, or a scenic overlook, or a move in gymnastics, or even a traffic stop (by police). Either way, it’s a tune by Dutch dj Jochem Paap.

30. They’re OK – they’re from Walthamstow.

37. Originally a tune called Soleado, in later days rerecorded as When A Child Is Born and Tränen Lügen Nicht. This tune is a pimped up version, preserving the title of the latter. The artist had an earlier hit with Lovesong (1994).


#20. Speedy J - Pullover
#30. Whigfield - It's Alright, it just took me Another Day because it wasn't Saturday Night.
#37. I wouldn't have found either without the reference to the original, and I had a hard time calling Mark Oh or C-Factory - Tears Don't Lie (I can only claim half a point here - I called C-Factory before checking the last hint and going with the laser-blast effect at around 1:09-1:13 in the Mark Oh version.  And the video's better.  Snow White's pretty cute too :)

I, too, wouldn't have gotten any of these without the hints either, especially #37, which I'd already confused for Rave-O-Lution's Falling In Love.  I wonder who was first of the three of 'em was first to use the boop/boop-beep/beep-boop riff that characterizes both tracks?)

All three are correct, Jason. :)

That's two-and-a-half out of three. I'm looking for the original artist for #30 (a London based boy band).

Doesn't look like you're ever gonna get the last three-and-a-half, so here they are:

21. On A Ragga Tip - SL2

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gXCN1DhHTZA


22. Strings Of Love - Phenomania

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_0YqpNyesEg


23. Funky Guitar - TC 1992 (or TC Berry)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JxJ_eeluP_0

FYI: The funky guitar sample seems to be taken from (or at least based upon) Papa Was A Rolling Stone, but I could be wrong. Anyway, they did the 1993 follow-up "Harmony" under the moniker of TC 1993. That track also credits Whitfield and Strong, but I'm not sure which song they used. Maybe Foo can have a listen...


30. It's Alright - East 17

Nope, I ouldn't have gotten any of those - but I agree with your Papa Was A Rolling Stone sample source. Had that in my notes, but couldn't place it to anything. Great quiz, though.

Thanks. :)

I notice the link to the follow-up "Harmony" has gone AWOL. I'd still like you to have a listen to see if you recognize the sample they used for that specific song.

Damn.  I may have to retract that Temptations/Papa Was A Rolling Stone cite. 

0g7KawdsVSQ

That was my first guess, but upon relistening, no, maybe not.  Same 3-4 notes, but not the same instruments.  I have heard that guitar riff before.  Question is, where?

You're thinking what I'm thinking. I, too, thought they used PWARS for Harmony, but upon listening to the song (PWARS, that is) I realized they probably used it for Funky Guitar instead.
So I'm just about as clueless as you are.

I also listened to the guitar riff in "Harmony", it reminds me of Spencer Davis ~ "I'm a man"

Is this what you are looking for? They sound similar to me. Have a listen

I guess this wasn't the one you were looking for (sounded like guitar riff from "Harmony")

No, I don't think it is. For one, "I'm A Man" wasn't written by Whitfield & Strong.
