I'm a firm believer that Dance / Eurodance is the greatest music in the world, and far better than the music that comes out these days. Enough of dubstep and all these songs about sex. Lose the Lady Gagas, Katy Perrys, Ke$has, and Justin Biebers of the world. Let's go back to a time when music was about happy things and talked about love and relationships.

Artists like Ace of Base, Alice Deejay, Amber, ATC, Crush, DJ Sash!, Eiffel 65, Haddaway, La Bouche, SNAP!, Vengaboys, etc. made the radio much more fun to listen to. Wouldn't you much prefer if the house music today was replaced by dance music in the style of what was found in the 90s - early 2000s?

An example of the greatness that is dance music!

I know we are in the minority but I totally agree. If my life was one continuous rave celebrating before Y2K I would be happy.

@Euro_Dancer: My wife would be your best friend. We actually had a couple of songs by Erasure at our wedding. LOL.
 
Also, I've listened to at least half of those bands in the past month or two. It would be more if she ever drove anywhere.

No, not really. I like Abba but the closest I get to dance music aside from them is stuff like Daft Punk and The Knife.
 
Edit: Also, just reading the words "La Bouche" instantly got the song "Be My Lover" stuck in my head. Shit.

Yea, they don't really fit lol. I was listening to them while making this topic and I guess the song subliminally told me to include them haha. My bad.

@Euro_Dancer:

I'll always be partial to Tiesto. I think his "Just Be" album is the most consistently amazing set of songs produced by a trance DJ. While I don't think he's quite as good now as he was then, his last Club Life was a step in the right direction. It's unfortunate Kaleidoscope was such a let down,

those are cheesy artists. there is a reason they aren't making/composing music anymore. paul van dyk needs to get back to his roots and make some real good melodic progressive trance. the stuff he's pumping out nowadays makes me shake my head. his best work can be heard on his double disc, "out there and back." "tell me why (the riddle)" is one of my top 3 favorite songs of all-time. "another way (original)" is fantastic, too. that one is in my top 5.

The 90s were pretty awful in terms of music. The only fond memory I have is the fact Ryan Adams' song for the Robin Hood movie was knocked off the top spot in the UK charts (where it sat for, like, half a year) by Prodigy's Firestarter.

This exact thought has come to mind a number of times the last few weeks. This stuff is so much fun to listen to. It doesn't try to be super serious and it ends up being way more fun than any of the stuff played these days. I'm pretty sure I've listened to every 90s artist the OP listed in the last two weeks.
 
Fun fact, my first CD was Eiffel 65's Europop, and my favourite song was NOT "Blue (Da ba dee)" but the title track. That song has such sick bass.

YES VERY YES. Early 90s Trance is by far the best Trance, especially Acid Trance.
    
I have been trying to find the best remix of Alice Deejay's "Better off Alone" but still haven't found anything better than the original. It's just SO GOOD 
     
By far my favourite Eiffel 65 song: 
 
Edit: I just saw someone mention Paul Van Dyk's album "Out There and Back" and I totally agree, he's not so good anymore but that album was phenomenal. Though I prefer "Avenue" to "Another Way", though both are amazing songs.

"avenue" is a great tune. PvD's earlier work was pretty damn fine stuff. trance peaked in 2000 and has been on a decline since then.

here are some of my other favorites:

All right, so I'm preparing to listen to everything in here I haven't heard, but what I have heard actually doesn't sound THAT different from what we get now out of Lady GaGa and half of what Katy Perry puts out. I mean, sure, the current stuff is less tongue-in-cheek than the pop (no stance on the trance) but it's still hyper-repetitive synth-pop. If anything, what we're doing now is a callback mixed between Europop and whatever you'd call Annie Lennox.
