NAJM Company Profile dot_clear.gif (43 bytes) NAJM's Top 100 Dance Tracks 1990-1999

Here are the long anticipated NAJM's Top 100 Dance Tracks of the last decade just in time for the Millennium! NAJM felt that these songs capture the essence of dance music through the 90's. We're positive we've left off some very popular tracks (as emails will reveal) but we really made every effort to cover our bases.

How did we come up with the list? We threw all the cd's and vinyl we had up in the air and what ever landed on top... Actually we were fairly scientific about the whole process. DJPJ and HM got together and each listed 100 songs they felt should be on the list. Then the lists were combined and only tracks that appeared on BOTH lists remained. Then each song was rated between 1 - 10 to indicate its placement in the top 100 (1 = top 10, 2 = teens, 3 = 20's and so on). The scores were then averaged to determine the final location. Final placement was then discussed behind closed doors, where the final tweaking was done.

Be sure to check out our viewer's additions at the bottom!
