5 Beautiful Dance Tracks That Make You Want To Sing Along Like No One's Listening (Even If They Are)
Of course, when you do sing along, you'll be drowning out those beautiful vocals with your caterwauling (or may that's just me), but just turn it up and sing your heart out anyway!
1) Moloko – The Time Is Now
A gentle starter to get you in the mood.

2) Lange ft. Skye – Drifting Away
Last weekend, I happened to hear another version of Drifting Away. I cranked the volume up but grabbed the CD cover, screaming “This is fantastic but I’m sure it isn’t the original!”. The name of the original artist was of course - Lange! But where had I heard that name recently? Oh.. turns out I’d heard Lange play at Voodoo literally the night before…amazing set but I’d had no idea he was such a long time legend in the scene!

3) Dash Berlin – Till The Sky Falls Down
Is Dash Berlin really three men, not one? Was he Alice Deejay? Was he the Vengaboys? Actually, it’s a yes to all of the above, according to this post by his own record label. We know he doesn’t do the singing, that’s for sure.

4) Perpetuous Dreamer – The Sound Of Goodbye
Who? Oh sorry, the full artist name is actually Armin Van Buuren presents Perpetuous Dreamer. All clear now? Specifically, I’d like you to listen to Armin Van Buuren’s Rising Star Mix, all 10m43s of it. If you really want to skip the foreplay, you can get straight down to business at 4m40s.

5) Massive Attack – Unfinished Sympathy
Hey, hey, hey-hey!
Handy pop trivia fact: When this tune was first released in February 1991, the first Gulf War had just started and so to avoid causing offence the single was released under the artist name ‘Massive’, rather than ‘Massive Attack’.
A timeless track, 23 years on.
