All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
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."

    You Can Dance

    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!!

    You Can Dance

    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

    You can wait to Dance

    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.
