Musical Interlude – 90s Dance Classics

So MTV did a top 100 dance hits of the 90s show. Not sure if it was based on sales or “expert opinion” but anyhoo, Unfinished Sympathy came top. Which is obviously the right answer.
However, the rest of it was a bit rum. What do you reckon was missing or in the wrong place? And if you ever went to a club that wasn’t owned by a corporation, you’ll probably feel there are at least a couple of sub-genres totally unrepresented. So go on, get it off yer chest. Have your say, make a list. Answers on a white label 12″ to the usual address please.
