ModMusic: 100% Pure Love

A reader recently asked what we thought was the greatest club song of all time. Which is kind of like asking what snowflake was our favorite in the last blizzard. How to choose? What genre? What decade? What club? One song did spring immediately to mind from deep in our subsconscious: Crystal Waters' 1994 stomper "100% Pure Love". Its effortless blend of house, tribal, electro, jungle, and pop influences has rarely been repeated; its base line is soulful, its lyrics swirling yet immediately memorable. If you've ever been in a gay club at 3 in the morning, on a packed dance floor of sweaty men, when this song comes on...well, you know it's just about as close as this life gets to heaven. Unadulterated bliss.

What about you...what's the best dance song of all time? 'Fess up.
