    This is somewhat "Part 2" of my 1990's bands/artists topic. Anyway, it seemed the 1990's was a big decade for dance-oriented bands/artists. The following is a partial list of those bands/artists along with their signature hits that were heard in just about every dance club throughout the 1990's:
    Technotronic..."Pump Up The Jam", "Move This"
    2 Unlimited..."Get Ready For This"
    Snap..."The Power", "Rhythm Is A Dancer"
    Lil' Suzy..."Take Me In Your Arms"
    Livin' Joy..."Dreamer"
    Real McCoy..."Another Night", "Run Away"
    La Bouche..."Sweet Dreams", "Be My Lover"
    Fun Factory..."Close To You", "I Wanna B With U"
    Culture Beat..."Mr. Vain"
    Corona..."Rhythm Of The Night"
    Haddaway..."What Is Love"
    Amber..."This Is Your Night"
    It seemed that style of music was to the 1990's as disco was to the mid/late 1970's. Although I'm basically a "1980's guy", I do get into a lot of 1990's music and have a large collection of 1990's hits, including all of the above, in my iTunes library. I often refer to the dance music as my "beer drinking music", since the only times I usually listen to it is when I'm drinking and getting my "beer buzz"! Anyone else here a fan of 1990's dance???

    I remember Quad City DJ'S The Train was played at our Middle School Dances, then they banned it because they didn't want us to have the long train lines because it was "dangerous"...never figured that one out

    Come to think of it, wasn't the dance/club music of the early/mid 1990's called the "new disco" or "disco revival"??? I think I recall hearing something like that back then.

    Same here. It's still a catchy song, IMO.

    Dance music is the only 90s music that I have any genuine affection for. I've always been a dancing man, and the 90s was a great decade for it. The freestyle was great and the techno was enjoyable, although I didn't really get into that until the 00s. For many years I associated techno with drugs, and that irritated some people. I re-evaluted my position and came around to liking it.

    Where's Ace of Base on that list? That's a great selection of Euro dance bands. Euro dance songs were among some of my favorite things of the 90s.

    Way more one hit wonders in the 90s than there were the 80s, but the one hits in the 90s sure were good most of the time.

    There was, of course, the "top 40" dance music that you guys have listed which was/is indeed wonderful music. There was also, however, a budding new genre in the early 90's called "EBM" or "EDM" (electronic body music - former, electronic dance music - latter). I was, and still am, a HUGE fan of this and it's sub-genres (including electro/industrial dance).

    Some of my favorite artists/groups:

    Skinny Puppy
    Velvet Acid Christ
    Wumpscut
    Front Line Assembly
