The sorta stuff Becks would boogie to, or the slags Shane Warne bonks, here are some of mine (guilty pleasure, but actually killer traxx IMHO):

1. Touch Me - Ruis Da Silva : Sublime, trunce with that crazy Spandau Ballet 'chant #1' guitar riff sample.

2. Another Chance - Roger Shachez : simplistic 'doof' with melodic gay vocal, great post sensualist Eno-MBV drones and fantastic 'kick in'. I reckon Sanchez is a modern-pop genius like Brian Wilson.

3. Another Point of view (can't remember that artist) - Italo house par excellence.

4. Trippin' (UK mainstream dance, forgot the artist) - I saw this on a TOTP repeat they had here is Australia a few years back. The Pom's were always good at chrning out these commercial 'one hit wonder' dance trax.

Anyway I d/l'd these off the net and they sound as 'deep' and 'out there' as any IDB and grime and other bullhsit trendy intellectual dance music that wrecked it for everyone coz like George Michael said - actually another great cheese track ' Flawless' - 'Guilty feet ain't got no rhythm'!

i don't think any of the following are cheesy, but i've been told they are . . . .

(1) alison limerick, "where love lives" (paul oakenfold remix)

(2) associates, "country club"

(3) black box, "everybody everybody"

(4) ester b, "pleasure of music"

(5) cola boy, "seven ways to love"

(6) vivien vee, "pick up"

and soft hop by likes of pm dawn, definition of sound, jungle bros, de la soul, monie love, thirst, etc

(apologies if all of this stuff is from past, not current)

Ah yes... you can't make a pizza without some cheese (or a cliche : )

Mine are mostly old but anyway these spring to mind:

Technotronic "Pump Up the Jam" - close to being an Inner City rip off which might be too "tasteful" to mention in this thread but I still love it.

Haddaway "What Is Love?" - as made famous by A Night At the Roxbury & a million deodorant ads.

Da Hool "Meet Her At the Love Parade" - is that the one with the bouncy synth line?

that Jason Nevin remix of Run DMC's "It's Like That"

that recent remix of INXS' "Just Keep Walking"

I have fond memories of dancing to that first Jestofunk single and The Bomb by the Bucketheads but they probably don't count..

Hey Music Lover - S'Express

total Confusion - Hippie Homeboy and Funky Dread

Pump up the jam

and yeah C&C Music factory did some cool shit..

'Dont Argue' - Cabaret Voltaire - still the benchmark for any funky as fuck IDM or whatever, but still a cheesy track compared to drill n bass or gronk or whatever...Oh and that camera on the chicks ass in that clip!

More contemp cheese..

Armand Van Helden - Beautiful Widow, man what a fucken drug-fucked rush of a track,

some of the Kylie Traxx work really well, Goldfrapp's 'Strict Machine' with all that fucken Norman Rosenbaum 'spirit in the sky' toss, but the best of all

MADONNA - RAY OF LIGHT!! Fucken luvit! Still do to this day, and not ashamed to say so! And when fucken Aphex Twin or whatever do a track as blissfully upbeat and pure as that, well fuck me.

Basment Jaxx - Romeo The Jaxx at their finest. Can't get enough of that stomping backbeat.

Elvis vs. JXL - A Little Less Conversation Vegas!

Binary Finary - 1999 Trancey, synthy goodness.

The Crystal Method - Comin' Back Talentless hacks? Maybe, but that atonal, haunting vocal by Trixie Reiss over those pulsing 303s gets me every time.

Rob Dougan - Clubbed to Death Strings and things zing.

Orbital - Halcyon + On + On Sublime.

The Prodigy - One Love Mostly for its association with the more kinetic moments in Hackers (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0113243/).

Underworld - Dark Train Another movie tie-in, this time the withdrawal scene in Trainspotting (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0117951/).

Most of the ones you name Chief Napalm are not cheesy. "One Love" and "Dark Train" are pretty underground actually.

I am not sure how popular this was but it sounds very eurodance except it is really great: Love 4 Sale - Do You Feel So Right

Capella - "U Got 2 Let the Music" and "U Got To Know"

I'll have to second Utah Saints "Something Good" (which I've actually been playing quite a bit recently) and Da Hool "Meet Her At The Love Parade"...former guilty pleasures that have had much of the guilt stripped away by nostalgia.

Dunno if I'd consider "Dark Train" or "Halcyon" to be particularly cheesy...just good tunes that got played out / overexposed. Same applies for "Higher State of Consciousness" and "Access"...first time I heard them my jaw dropped, the fiftieth time I wondered when the DJ was going to buy some new records.

There is definitely a disconnect between the US and UK where a lot of tracks that charted over there but stayed deep underground here are concerned. Trying to reevaluate stuff that was always considered cheesy back home from the perspective of people who only ever heard these tracks in places like NASA requires background info. For example, it became a little easier for me to be kind(er) about Toytown Techno when one of my NYC mates pointed out that - as far he was concerned at the time - 'Hugh, Pugh, Barney McGrew, Cuthbert, Dibble and Grubb' were all new types of drugs. No excuses for "Sesame's Treat" or "We Are Raving" though.


Anyway...nominations for...

Nightcrawlers - "Push The Feeling On" (I believe the Mark Kinchen mixes were the ones that got the most play)

Reel 2 Real - "I Like To Move It"

Nomad - "Devotion" (anyone know if a dub of this existed? I think I'd still really like it but can't face having to listen MC Mikee Freedom)


There's also a load of chart topping handbag tunes from 96 / 97 / 98 that I have a sneaking suspicion I'd like to hear again but may not have enough distance yet...

Lisa Marie Experience - "Jumpin"

Stretch 'n' Vern - "I'm Alive"

That Farley & Heller one wot had a guy with an elephant head in the video.

DigitalDjigit

This is killer. That and the Robyn S track are what they call Organ House I think. I don't know any others that have that kind of bassline. Wouldn't call them cheesy either.

One track I forgot: Sabrina - Boys. I loved that when I was a kid and recently rediscovered it. Even the rapping is not embarassing. Summer time love.

Absolutely anything by Black Box, though "I don't want anybody else" is probably my favourite. Also:

Hithouse "Jack to the sound of the underground" (chooon!)

Beatmasters "Burn it up" (Acid mix)

Nu Shooz "I can't wait"

Reel 2 Real "I like to move it"

and more embarrassing because it doesn't even have nostalgia to justify it:

Groove Armada "Superstylin'"

Oh, does this count? St. Etienne "Only love can break your heart"

Yeah that's great, i wouldn't have called it cheese, but then my standards may be low. Anyway, I'm sure you could do better (or worse ;) ). The best I've heard lately would be Mylo - In my arms, SL2 - On a ragga tip and D-Mob and Cathy Dennis - C'mon and get my love.

Robin S - Show Me Love (I know it's been mentioned by others already, but it managed to redeem many an evening otherwise wasted at the Blue Orchid in Croydon :o )

Daft Punk - One More Time feat Romanthony

Armand van Helden - Flowerz (I notice he's been referenced a lot, as well. Armand van Helden: the acceptable face of cheese?)

Delacey - Hideaway (Deep Dish remix) - is that cheesy? It charted, so I guess it must be. But it still gets me every time...

There's a New Zealand composer called Jack Body - seems almost criminal that he didn't do house music rather than making electro-acoustic stuff out of recordings of Balinese street scenes. :p

Anyway, touche Omaar... how about Snap's 'Rhythm is a Dancer'? Dannii's 'I Begin To Wonder'? Had a great time dancing to that in a shit bar in Sydney for Mardi Gras a few years back.

Nothing wrong with Armand Van Helden at all. I wouldn't class him as cheese. Just good house music.

Cheese is anything you would be embarassed to be caught listening to (with some qualifications which I am not going to get into).

That works pretty well as a definition for me (except that it means I'd have to withdraw some of my choices).

I've always considered one of the hallmarks of truly cheesy dance music to be for the track to seem like it was created specifically and almost solely to be played to drunken audiences at meat market nite clubs for about a year after release and at wedding receptions for a further ten or so years after that. Music to be danced to by crowds who are collectively not all that invested in what they dance to but like to recognize it as something they saw on MTV earlier. A simple 4:4 beat, drunken singalongable vocal hooks and a video with loads of scantily clad women in it are other key factors. (The more scantily clad women, the bigger the hit I reckon: see "Macarena", "Mambo No. 5" and "Call on Me".)

Atlantic Ocean - "Waterfall"

Diggedy Derek
05-08-2005, 04:41 PM
For me Dreamer by Livin' Joy is on the absolute dividing line between good-cheesy and bad-cheesy. It's a one-dimensionally anthemic quality that suggests it had one eye firmly on the chart, and there's no interesting textures there or anything, but the singing is a sassy smash and grab on classic garage vocals, and it just has so much balls that you can't help but love it.

I always find it quite amusing to think that we used to dance at school discos to tunes that were at least stylistically connected with drug-fuelled dance events (or directly - Let Me Be Your Fantasy). I wonder what dance music little kids particularly go for - big hooks, a decent tune...?

I'm glad someone's made a thread like this. I was thinking the other day to do something similar. This is my top 5 of cheesey chart trance. I know very little about trance, and like even less. There seems to be one end of it which is unadulterated commercial 'euphoria', and the other more underground minimal side of things. And I would definitely choose the former. If a genre is to be so limited then you might as well make the most of those few elements. To my inexperienced ears trance is all about the kind of synths that if you held a key down on the keyboard the sound would go on forever, as opposed to a sound that is a pulse. The 'euphoric' (or emotional, as I like to call it) sound that trance tries to create is on paper a brilliant idea, but other genres are much better at the execution. That's probably because other styles have more freedom to play around with ideas. But when trance gets it right and marries it to cheesey vocals they are on to a winner.

Lost witness- Red Sun Rising
truly excellent song, could easily be reimagined as a folk song or somesuch
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gJGrcHwh4Ns

Freefall- Skydive
melody kicks in after a minute, good vocals come later.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CsP-98ZGjb4

Jam & Spoon- Right in the Night
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Yq84VI0SqY

A:Xus- When I fall in love (Stryke's blue vocal techsture mix)
Perhaps a little techy for trance, this is a reasonably cheese free interpretation of what makes good trance. As sampled by El-B & J Da Flex. Edit/ find on page/ 'stryke' to have a listen to this
http://mp3zr.com/?q=A%3Axus

Jersey Street- Cried me a river (boxsaga remix)

x100 yes, my favorite commercial rave anthem by far. also Noise Factory ripped the piano lines for a scorcher of their own (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GZadfRt0iYk) - actually they did a # of terrific, fairly cheesy rave/ardkore tunes, which I find mildly amusing given Terry Tee's later incarnation as roots & culture bloodclart natty dread hardline junglist.

Is it appropriate to mention the Oakenfold remix of Happy Mondays - Hallelujah in this thread? I always loved it anyway.
Perhaps not so much a 'cheesy choon' track (although imo those diva hooks are cheesy as hell!), as a 'crossover' type tune, that kind that was maybe popular with people who didn't like/know about dance music much usually (although obv I wasn't there at the time so could be talking shite).

'I need your loving' is fucking great. Not many points for originality, all it does is add junglist drums to the original. But still brilliant. Also in that vein is this:

M Beat- sweet Love

And one I should have had in the top 5 cheesey trance

Alice deejay- Better off alone

looks like I forgot them. The vocal is similar to the original singer though
