Your Fave 90s Dance Anthems?

In this Summer weather, I find myself playing feel-good, 90s dance anthems a lot, which still sound great today.

You know you can do polls right? Or maybe you can’t. Either way let me know and I can turn this into a poll…

Had many a good night in the Warehouse in Leeds to this. They used to play it about six times a night when it was first released.


That list has some good tracks but without No Good (Start the Dance) it is pointless.


Good shout. Consider it added (in return for some votes for some of the others as well :slight_smile: )

Thank you - I thought you could but suspected my list would have too many options?

best one


Not generally my bag but there are a few notable exceptions. This just sneaks in from 1999 I think

Blue Boy - Remember Me


Oh yes you may be right. Continue :pleading_face:. Sunchyme definitely the biggest banger on your list.

Black Box - Ride on Time


The key the secret


Cba reading that list but let’s just pretend none of these are on it yet.


Not over yet! Absolute banger.


Genuinely think Your Woman is an absolute top tier pop song.

Don’t know any of the others you’ve linked!

It’s in my top 5 singles of the 90s without a doubt. I love it and always will.

They’re all mostly terrible in the best possible way.

Quite irked by the artist sometimes being listed first in the op, sometimes second.

Not sure about emf being classed as a dance anthem

I know! You could say it was…
Beyond belief!

Encore un fois, insomnia, no good (Start the Dance), Ebeneezer Goode my favourites.

No Limit, Professional Widow (the Armand van Halden mix), Born Slippy and Hey Bky, Hey Girl need to be in the picture as well. Also personally partial to Get A Way by Maxx.
