Not for nothing did "Move Your Body" gain the subtitle of "The House Music Anthem" - its classic refrain of "gotta have house... music/ all night long" is one of the most memorable in all of dance music, familiar not just to house heads but club-goers of every stripe. From the thundering piano vamps of the intro (used to great effect in the film 24 Hour Party People when they are entering the Hacienda club) to the keyboard stabs that drive the bulk of the song, "Move Your Body" is one of the most perfect encapsulations of the early Chicago house sound. Raw drum machines and gospel-influenced piano & vocals at their finest. If you're a house DJ, you have no excuse for not owning this; and if you're a civilian, come on in and join the party. Flip side doesn't let up either with Jamie Principle's electro-sexy speak "Baby Wants To Ride" which sounds as relevant as ever.
