Yeah but that also has Thomas Dolby's 'Blinded Me With Science," which, yes, you can technically dance to it but it's always been considered just an 80s pop song, not specifically "Dance." Seems anything with a synth line qualifies as dance to some industry ppl.

You need to look at what was considered dance music in 1982/1983, Physical Attraction was current and played in clubs

Okay fine but at least admit PA slows things down  a bit on You Can Dance when it mixes in lol

To me, the way it was positioned in YCD was suitable as we come from an energetic remix and rework of Everybody. Think of it as a cool down dance song. After that, we shift to Side B with Over and Over and pick up the pace again. :D

I L-O-V-E "PA" was it was a last minute addition to "You Can Dance", that's why it's just the album version and not remixed or anything.

"You Can Dance" was going to be a 6-track EP, released in pre-Christmas 1986. After delaying it to 1987, it looks like Warner decided to add "Physical Attraction" to round it up a little bit and sell it as a full album price?

From "Billboard", November 26 1986:

You know that PA was loved when they had to delay the release of YCD just to add her in. I knew that Madonna loved her so much and now, PA belongs in another family. :Madonna041:

What a time to be alive as a Physical Attraction stan. :heart:

It may not be very fast paced song but it's a mid-tempo song where you just want to do a small dance moment when you're cleaning your room.

So it's still a dance song. :D

At 117 bpm is just below the most popular dance tracks but still in the dance tempo. It's the kinda of music you can do more swing and thrust. (reggaeton all goes between 88-120bpm)

And the lyrics kinda suggest the more sexual approach to it.

80s dance music is an evolution of the disco scene and most part of disco tracks are in the lower side 115-130, with exceptions of course.

Yeah, it's indeed a slow dance track but a very good one. :D

And it's cool to know that disco evolved into the 80s dance pop genre, which has inspired a lot of songs now in terms of production.

I can't find the interview online to recall the details of it, sorry. Does anybody have this as a scan or live text please?

It's the 1994 Details magazine interview where she relates the journalist's interviewing style to rape.

FYI @musicinferno

You can now find scans of this article here:

Actually from this article it looks like EVERYBODY was a last minute addition.

PA is said to be most likely included, no mention of Everybody.

(BTW I always felt that three songs from the first album in sequence on side A were too many)

@Roy : Physical Attraction = @Shoful: Future

#doingsomemath

it's probably because I was listening physical attraction in the 80’s when the first album came out .. but I swear if I still hear it mentioned once in this post I throw myself off the balcony !!
