My top 100 ‘dance anthems’ of all time

This post has been on my ‘to do list’ for quite some time now, and over the Christmas period I have been chatting to lots of like minded people and as a result I decided I was going to invest the time compiling my top 100 dance anthems of all time, so I could share it with others.

I have spent hours compiling this list and I must stress it is my personal choice of ‘dance anthems’ from 1992 – 2004 (but only a small handful are pre-1997) There is no surprise that there are 27 tracks from 1998 alone as I have always said that 1998 was THE year for dance (62 of the 100 were from 1997-1999!)

Where I have stated a date, this is either the release date OR if there are multiple versions of the track and it is the version I prefer. Every single one of these tracks hold a certain memory for me and have been hand-picked one by one and added to my list.

I would love to know your thoughts about my top 100 and also your own ‘dance anthems’ from this era so get in touch.
