Pump Up The Volume - The Dance Classics Collection

Get ready for some partying this weekend as today's set comprises some of the best and well-loved classic dance anthems from the mid-to-late 80s to the early 90s. Expect stuff from M.A.R.R.S., Ce Ce Peniston, Kon Kan, Yaz, Cathy Dennis, Crystal Waters, and a lot more.

Most of the tunes are early house tracks and were really very popular during that era. In fact, I still have some of them on vinyl. So now, its time to shut up and dance.

1) My Heart Keeps Burning - Blind Date (Original 12" Version)
2) Pump Up The Volume - M.A.R.R.S. (12" Single Ultimix) - classic track!
3) Welcome - Gino Latino (Extended Version)
4) Groove Is In The Heart - Dee-Lite (Remix) - early Towa Tei work

5) September - Earth, Wind & Fire (Disconet Remix)
6) Makin' It Happy - Crystal Waters (Ultimix)
7) Just Another Dream - Cathy Dennis (Funky Mix)
8) We Got A Love Thang - Ce Ce Peniston (Steve Silk Hurley House Mix)
9) Too Blind To See It - Kym Sims (Hurley's House Mix)
10) Shake Your Head - Was Not Was feat. Kim Basinger (Extended Version) - nice vocals!
11) Touch Me (All Night Long) - Cathy Dennis (Powerhouse Remix)
12) Counting Every Single Minute - Sonia (Extended Version)
13) Gonna Catch You - Lonnie Gordon (Hot Tracks Remix)

14) Show Me Love - Robin S (Ultimix) - my fave track here!
15) Real Wild House - Raul Orellana (Bolero Mix 6) - classic instrumental track!; very hard to find; reminds me of 89DMZ days
16) I Just Don't Have The Heart - Cliff Richard (12" Extended Version)
17) That's The Way Love Is - Ten City (Deep House Mix) - another classic track!
18) I Beg Your Pardon - Kon Kan (Art of Mix) - nice tune!

19) The Only Way Is Up - Yazz (Extended 12" Version)
20) Bizarre Love Triangle - New Order (12" Extended Mix)
21) Good Life - Inner City (Eric Prydz Unreleased Mix)
22) I'm Gonna Get You - Bizarre Inc. feat Angie Brown (Extended Version)
23) Strike It Up - Blackbox (Mixx-It Remix)

This megamix is so so GREAT !!!! I cant believe having in MP3 all those old and classic songs for me !!!

Ce Ce Peniston, Kim Sims, etc !!! I have the songs on some cassettes, so imagine what i felt when i downloaded the megamix and i began remember that songs !!!! because, you know, most of the songs i didn´t remember WHO sang them !!!

Now, since this weekend, YOUR megamix (this especially) and others travel with me on my MP3 player.

GREAT JOB MAN, for me music is life, and THIS megamix had truly made me more happy !!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you !!
