August 19, 2020, marks the 40th Anniversary of the beginning of the Dance Music Age, according to Sources. The compilation 1980’s Dance is the first example of a selection of best/classic hits of the time. In the last 40 years, there have been many versions of the compilation album. Those records are ideal for parties because they can appeal to the various tastes in music people have.
There’s a nostalgic feel to these kinds of albums. Nowadays, various streaming applications have playlists with a similar principle. In the era of CDs, compilations of Dance music were a fun way to discover fantastic artists of that period. I remember listening to these records in the late 90s/early 2000s with my friends.
Do you remember compilations albums/CDs that made you want to get and dance?
Here are examples of songs in Dance Compilations
