Club Music & Remixes

Suzanne Vega

I should have put Suzanne in a “forgotten artist” category, because no one is talking about her these days. There are only two huge hits I remember her for. I think she became most famous for a club mix she did called “Tom’s Dinner,” off her second album called “Solitude Standing.” This must have been a special 12 inch release, ’cause she only sings this song a-cappella on her album. I loved the beat of this song. Although the song only peaked at #5 on the billboard, it was still a considerable hit. The second song you may remember her for is a song called “Luka,” which is on the same album. This was a very important song in the 80s, as it brought awareness to domestic violence towards women. The song hit #3 on the Hot 100 Charts. She has recorded quite a few albums since then, but none has repeated the success of her second album.

Crystal Waters

Wow, I must really have been in a dance mood lately. I came across one of my favorite dance oldies you may remember from the 90’s. It’s from a classic house queen that dominated the nineties dance floor. Her name is Crystal Waters, and the song is called “Makin Happy.” The song came from her debut album called “Surprise.” I must say that, the late eighties into the late nineties were special, in that artists used to write lyrics to dances that made absolutely no sense, yet these same songs became major hits because they were fun to listen/dance to. Crystal is a poet, writer, and performer. I recommend that you go through some of her greatest hits album, she’s had a LOT of great dance tunes that has gone to #1 on the dance charts. Including “100% Pure Love (1994).”

I really don’t remember if I shared this anywhere or not. But this is a really nice dance edit. I highly recommend my readers take a listen. I’m not sure what was the actual release date, but judging from when it was posted on SoundCloud, I estimate around 2015. Zack went was going to tech college, while becoming one of the most sought after DJs in the 90s. He has done a lot of old school edits, ranging from Barry White’s music, to the legendary Diana Ross. It has a smooth disco sound that compliments Curtis’s voice. DJ Zack has done an excellent job remixing this. This song would go great for power walks! Nice and steady beats.
