Madonna’s new single

I can’t stop listen to the new Madonna disco single “Hung up“, which has an Abba “gimme gimme gimme” twist. Amazing dance song, can’t keep my feet on the ground!

I love the disco era and its later incarnation as “eurodance” in Europe & Japan in the first half of the ’90s. The center of the eurodance movement was Germany and I happened to be living in Germany at the time. I remember going to the club and dancing all night… And I used to dance pretty well. 😉

I don’t know why Americans were largely unmoved by Eurodance btw. Very few eurodance songs ‘made’ it popular in US, even if there are some amazing songs to be found among them. There is a lot of trash too (e.g. “Barbie Girl”), but songs like Taleesa’s “I found Luv” or T.H. Express’ “I’m on your side” are simply amazing!
