    Post Dance Music of the 80's

    I thought I'd see if we can a thread going on dance music of the 80's. Hopefully, this discussion will be more about club songs than radio hits. So here is my top 10 club hits:

    1 "You Spin Me Round" by Dead or Alive
    2 "Blue Monday" by New Order
    3 "Strange Love" by Depeche Mode
    4 "Join in the Chant" by Nitzer Ebb
    5 "Din Daa Daa" by George Kranz
    6 "Erotic City" by Prince
    7 "New York" by MCL (MicroChip League)
    8 "Bizarre Love Triangle" by New Order
    9 "Halloween" by Ministry
    10 "Headhunter" by Front 242

    Any other ideas?

    What's wierd is most of those songs you listed I don't know by name. If I heard them, I'd probably remember.. I just heard "You Spin Me Round" recently. Great song.. Din Da Da - cool! I like that one! I've known it a LONG time.. Hmm. That's about it.. I'll add some to this list shortly...

    Smile Prince|'Erotic City'

    One night, just a few years ago, I heard Prince's Erotic City.

    That version of the song I'd heard consisted of a frequent use of the F-word; for instance, "We can f--- 'til the break of dawn!"

    But, very recently, I heard the radio-edited version of Erotic City.

    Wow. I don't remember that song at all. I'm not sure it could be categorized as Freestyle, though.. Are you a Freestyle fan, JS Steele? There aren't many around here lately...

    That is the only version of the song. If you have an edited version I'd want to see it. (Have it, that is.) Erotic city was the b-side to "Let's go crazy" It wasn't available on any album until the soundtrack to "Girl 6" came out, then it was on the 3 CD set Prince: The hits/the b-sides.
    Sal,
    I'm a fan but the subject doesn't come up a lot. I have a different definition. I consider Prince R&B or funk. Nitzer Ebb, Ministry and Front 242 I thought were Industrial and Dead or Alive, Depeche Mode and New Order I thought were New Wave. Never heard of MCL or George Kranz but I'll keep my eye out for them. Once again, I thought freestyle was a kind of rap were you didn't write the words down you just came up with them on the fly.

    you're dispicable!
    Did you get that thing I sent ya?

    Cool

    Nope, that's not freestyle..neither is the list that us007 listed either..saw more New Wave in there.

    Daffy, freestyle is rapping on the fly, but usually people attach the word 'rap' to that kinda freestyle so ya know what their talking about (ie 'rappin' freestyle, freestyle rappin', etc.).

    The Freestyle that this forum is about is one of, if not the, best form of dance music around (that I've heard anyway). There's a huge explanation in another topic in this forum...

    Here's a short list of some freestyle songs.

    Cynthia - Theif of Hearts
    Company B - Fascinated
    Expose - Point of No Return
    Stevie B - Spring Love
    Stevie B - Party Your Body
    Johnny O & Cynthia - Dream Boy, Dream Girl
    Freeeze - IOU

    I think most of these were fairly popular.

    I first heard that song one night, several years ago. Yes, I have heard some freestyle, especially back in the '80s (I think).

    Recently (one Saturday night), I was lucky enough to hear a few songs from 12 Inch Saturday Night--an all-'80s radio show that can be heard on a New Orleans' all-'80s station, 92.3 The Point (WCKW-FM), whose signal occasionally reaches Jackson.

    DJ, I find that hard to believe. Go to this link and listen to the sound clip: http://www.cdnow.com/cgi-bin/mserver...ITEMID=1179064

    Let me know if you remember it.

    Yes, I remember Ready For The World's Oh Sheila--as well as (Let Me) Love You Down.

    Both songs were by Ready For The World.

    Cool

    Are they really Sal? I've been trying to dip back into Freestyle heavily again, just time REALLY isn't a luxury with the semester just starting.

    I'd love to hear more from those mid-late 80's/early 90's groups/singers listed there if their making new stuff
