Overview

Released in 1987 as a stopgap, the remix album You Can Dance reworks material from Madonna's first three albums. Actually, it keeps the spotlight on her first record, adding non-LP singles like "Into the Groove" for good measure, along with a bonus track of "Where's the Party." Since it's a dance album, it doesn't matter that "Holiday" and "Into the Groove" are here twice, once each in dub versions, because the essential grooves and music are quite different in each incarnation. It is true that some of this now sounds dated -- these are quite clearly extended mixes from the mid-'80s -- but that's part of its charm, and it all holds together quite well. Not essential, but fun.

You Can Dance 4.3 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 3 reviews.

You can Dance was released as one of the first Remixe albums ever to be released, following some other notable Rock/Dance acts. This release reminds me of the earlier released Deborah Harry and Blondie remixe album ''Once more into the Bleach'', where as the Blondie album soars, the Madonna album is completly void of depth. You can Dance was really just made as a time filler between studio albums, there was not much effort put into this release, which is too bad, Madonna's obvious dance appeal was over looked here.

Great dance songs here, also pretty good dubs! It's a great CD holding Madonna's best dance songs of the 80's. While listening to it, you have to get up and dance. It deffinately lives up to its name! IT'S GREAT

Madonna always knows how to make her music sound great and always employs the day's top DJs to do so. With this album, her first remix album, she gives the songs a different sound, extended beats and everything to make them suitable for the dance flor and to be called remixes. Madonna, almost 20 years later, still has the best remixes and remix albums out there. True Godess Of Pop!!
