Why do they think these European songs will flop in the U.S. so hard??

Times have changed, we can now handle a European sounding dance song. We don't need a rap or hip hop friendly remix made!! :evil: :evil:

The remix sounds awful. The original was so pure and epic
they DO flop in America :lol:

Yeah but she's pop. Electro-pop may be popular, but its different to dance: house, trance, techno, etc...

Release Me sounds not completely like a dance song. It sounds between dance and pop.

Not to mention, she has very "R&B" vocals. Americans loves R&B vocals

Agnes has never been a Dance music artist, she just went with this style in her latest album, and even it wasn't completely a dance record, even release me and On and On and mixed between dance and pop.

Release Me and On and On are typical eurocheese, and are probably VERY dance for americans, considering what they usually consider "dance" music...

"Sexy Bitch" by David Guetta ft. Akon
"I Gotta Feeling" by Black Eyed Peas
"Poker Face" by Lady GaGa
"Break Your Heart" by Taio Cruz ft. Ludacris
"Sandstorm" by Darude
"One More Time" by Daft Punk
"Tik Tok" by Ke$ha
"Satisfaction" by Benny Bennasi


Those are the only dance type songs most Americans are exposed to. It turns out that we actually like real dance songs, it's just that they are poorly promoted and radio stations don't play them.

Whenever I show my friends dance songs, they love them. When I ask them why they rarely listen to dance songs, they tell me that they never really knew about dance music.

a song you can dance to. Rap and uptempo R&B can be considered "dance" music in America.

To be honest it's our fault for calling the genre dance, it really can confuse people. "Electronica" is a much better term imo. Especially because dance can also be a sub-genre of the main dance/electronica genre.

So,we should rename this thread now?
Dance is full of sub-genres.It is just very confusing,given that everything is electronised now.

We have electronic,techno,house,trance as the main tenants of dance.Anymore?

I dont think electronic is a genre, just a way to describe music, which can be organic or electronic. Electro on the other hand is a sub-genre, normally associated with electro-house.

This thread will still be named Agnes - Release Me :lol:
The forum I guess can still be Dance, although Dance/Electronica would be better

8-) 8-) 8-)

This is turning into a dance genre debate! :lol: :lol:
TBH,I'm still a dance newbie and I don't think I will be able to differentiate the different type of dance music.

I know Trance = Armin/Something relaxing
Techno = Noisy
Electronic = Everything on pop/hip-hop records nowadays
House = ?? :oops: :oops:

Indeed. But that's because that kind of music is only played at gay clubs over there, or at least for the most part.
Here its like the norm for every club to play it, the odd ones would be the ones that play rock, R&B or something else.

America is the most ignorant country in the world in more ways than just their views on music.
