Default 12" Dance Classics

Well, I'm not calling it the dreaded D word but you know what I mean: 12" club classics (decidedly not electronica) that still sound great today. Post your favorites!

Default Welcome To The Pleasuredome

Despite the arty presentation this is an instance where the remix almost ruins the track (IMO).

Doctor Love First Choice



I suppose the Tom Moulton mix ^ is the classic. Shep Pettibone's is the more souped up/serious dance floor up version but I'm not crazy about the breaks.

This Mike Maurro mix is a nice, long & mellow version but the 70s flashback graphics really put it over.
