DARE (Dare Refix)

Now, if you’d rather make your garage rave a successful one, Paul Van Dyk’s take on "DARE" should be your choice. With your classic bass kick drum loop, a repeated sampling of Rosie Wilson’s “Baby,” and a stabbing synth backdrop, this refix never ventures too far from techno normalcy. This is the same clay they’ve been spinning in clubs since the days of Studio 54, that one standard electronic track that seems to survive years and years and years, no matter how much popular music evolves. Yes, you’ve heard it eighteen thousand times before. Does that make it bad? No, not really! The source material is catchy enough, and the basic equation is solid enough that this sugar-sweet track remains exactly what it should be: fuck. Here, think of it this way: If "DARE" is a nice, clean, Olympic-sized lap pool; the Refix is the shallow end: Lacking in any sort of depth or challenge, but perfect for the kids to play Marco Polo in. So get sucking on a pacifier, tighten your flight goggles, and start popping and locking: You’ve got a perfect soundtrack for getting your sweat on.

Lyrics:

Baby
Baby
Baby
Baby

It's coming up
It's coming up
It's coming up
It's DARE

You've got to press it on you
You just think it
That's what you do baby
Hold it down there

Jump with them all and move it
Jump back and forth
And feel like you were there yourself
Work it out

It's coming up
It's coming up
It's coming up
It's DARE

You've got to press it on you
You just think it
That's what you do baby
Hold it down there

Jump with them all and move it
Jump back and forth
And feel like you were there yourself
Work it out

It's coming up
It's DARE

Never did no harm (baby)
Never did no harm (baby)

It's coming up
It's coming up
It's coming up
It's coming up
It's coming up
It's coming up
It's DARE

Never did no harm (baby)
Never did no harm (baby)

It's coming up
It's coming up
It's coming up
It's coming up
It's coming up
It's coming up
It's DARE

You've got to press it on you
You just think it
That's what you do baby
Hold it down there

Jump with them all and move it
Jump back and forth
And feel like you were there yourself
Work it out

It's coming up
It's DARE
