"Just look at the songlisting on here! There's no way that any dance lover could ever decide to pass this disc up! Every song rocks the house to it's foundations! Some sound very dated but still very fun to dance to!"
The best of the best dance collection series ever!

"Montell Jordan's "This is How We Do It" many might recall was a massive storm on the pop and R&B during much of 1995 and 1996 with it's mainstream old school hip hop beats and fun melody. I really enjoyed this track a lot during it's heyday and while R&B went down the toilet not long afterwards, this track to me has held up very well over the years since then. The next two tracks while not terrible are nothing to write home about. Planet Soul's song of the same name is the first. The song starts off promising with a pulsating beat but then goes into a state of mediocrity from there forth. The the drippy electronic sound effects are actually a bit annoying sounding more like malfunctioning microwave. Barbara Tucker's "Stay Together" is similar to the previous but fares better with a better beat and odd cymbal sound effects and the electronic sound effects for the melody work a lot better. The only thing that keeps this song from being much to write home about is that it's very short and the result is a song that sounds more like an interlude than a song. The keyboard intro to Real McCoy's "Another Night" comes in towards the ending and Real McCoy's track starts. In all honesty, flawed as "Stay Together" may be, I actually love how it transitions into "Another Night". "Another Night" is one of my favorite dance songs of all time. It is a dark but also fun dance song with very macho rapping but also excellent melody, a dark undertone and innovative beats. "Another Night" is not only a great track but after so many years since it's heyday, it has held up well over the years and it still sounds modern to this day.. The song transitions into Whigfields "Saturday Night". This very bizarre track is excellent nighttime dancing music for a party in the big city. The song is a very quirky and bizarre track but also really fun and positively cheesy. The quacking duck sound-effects in the beat are really funny to listen to. Over time, this track has become a guilty pleasure of mine. "Moving On Up" by M-People is a really fun and somewhat angry song about moving on after breaking up with someong who is extremely egotistic and how one moves on upwards. The song has a very strong disco style to it and excellent keyboard sounds. "The Bomb" by The Bucketheads is an odd track with a mix of 1970s disco/funk elements and strange voice effects to give the song a very 1960s sort of sound to it. "Dreamer" by Livin' Joy is a classic having a very strong techno rhythm and excellent vocals. I love the beat and the attack keyboard effects are really excellent. This track has also held up well over the years. "Rhythm Of The Night" by Corona is another great track. This song has a very strong and intense melody and an excellent beat. The production on this song is just excellent and almost everything that could be good about a dance track is on this track. I love the keyboard effects and like "Dreamer", this song has also lasted very well over time. Joanne Farell's "All I Wanna Do" isn't a lot to write home about. I was never really a fan of the original by Sheryl Crow and this dance remix doesn't really help either. While nowhere near being terrible or even bad, this track is among the lesser appealing songs and it has dated very badly over time. "Tonight Is The Night" by Le Click is a gem on this song. It has a really cool techno beat and buzzing synthesizer effects for the melody and not to mention excellent vocals from the late Melanie Thornton to create a great track. It's sometimes a bit sad to listen to since her passing in a plane crash late in 2001. TITN ends and merges right into what I consider one of the most unique tracks on this collection. "Find Me" by Jam and Spoon is a really hypnotizing track with a very light beat and beautiful acoustic guitars and haunting ambient New Agey sound and the result is a great song. I love the vocals and the melody is absolutely haunting. The songs acoustic guitars blend this track into the energy of the next track "Take Control" by BKS. This song is radically different from the two tracks on the first and second entries in the Dance Mix USA series. The first two are very strange and remote sounding classics. "Take Control" however is a very energetic and rave-like dance track with a great melody and unique chord structure. "Get Ready For This" by 2-Unlimited is a famous sports classics. Younger and some older audiences will almost know this song by heart. This song holds a lot of great memory for me because it was played at many sports tournaments that I participated in as a kid and it makes me yearn for those days again. It is a fun and absolutely energetic dance song that will cheer you up and look to the future. "Cotton-Eyed Joe" by Rednex is one of the funniest but also most brilliant dance songs ever done. It is a fast paced and hilarious song that actually blends Western Cowboy Bluegrass and country and mixes it with techno dance and ironically it works so well. "Set You Free" by N Trance is another excellent song with excellent melody, great beats, and great vocals. "Close To You" by Fun Factory is a fun and excellent dance track with a slight reggae-ish sound to it. I really love the keyboards and odd sound effects too. "Get Away" by Maxx is similar to the previous and a more stadium dance sound to it. "Don't Turn Around" by Ace of Base closes this dance collection on a great note with a funky and reggae-ish style and great beats."
