Who Better To Compile Some Of The Hurtin'-Est, Swooning-Est, Funkiest, Most Attitude-Serving Songs To Groove To Than Rupaul? Whether You Want To Move With That New Love Interest In The Club (Paula Abdul'S "Vibeology") Or Sing About Him/Her In Front Of Your Bedroom Mirror ("There Must Be An Angel" By Eurythmics), Go-Go Box Classics Is All About The Nightlife, And The Wonderful Pleasure And Pain It Can Bring To Its Denizens. The Usual Suspects Are Here (Pointer Sisters, Aretha Franklin, Diana Ross) Along With Some Surprises. Punk-Disco Goddess Nina Hagen'S "Universal Radio" Is Included, As Is "Bullet Proof" By The King Of The Nasty Funk, George Clinton. These Are Songs That Inspired Many A Club-Monger To Take Center Stage On One Of Those Elevated Go-Go Platforms And, For One Brief Moment, Be The Force That Brought That Song To Life. Rupaul'S Selections Obviously Reflect His Favorites, Including His Own Duet With Martha Wash, "It'S Raining Men ... The Sequel." --Steve Gdula

Play that funky music drag queen!Sep 05, 2001
By Bruce Aguilar
I must confess to only getting this CD because RuPaul was on the cover. And what a cover it is! It features Ru in a bikini and when you tilt the CD back and forth Ru wiggles to and fro! Once I saw that i was hooked and HAD to get the CD.
I didn't know many of the songs included, but thought if it was good enough for RuPaul, it's good enough for me. Well this has turned out to be one of the best collections I have! The music is so funky and you can't help but get up and dance to it all. I use it for work-outs, long drives, parties, and just to dance around and relieve stress. If never fails to please! About the only songs I don't like are Ru's! The sequal to It's Rainig Men, is ok, but the track only offers Ru commenting on the lyrics rather than a re-interpretation of the song. Get Loose is ok, but just a throw away track. The real reason to get this is for the masterful Goldmine, Bullet Proof, There Must Be Angel, Rock-A-Lot and all the others. Even the remix of Paula Abdul's Vibeology is terrific! How did I ever miss these songs? This collection is too perfect! I can't wait for more compilations form Ru Paul!
Another packaging note. The liner notes include comments from Ru on each song as well as the songs release date and chart ranking (where applicable). It's a small touch, but adds so much to the package. Don't miss out on this collection!

5 stars for the silk hurley 12" of Paula AbdulAug 15, 2005
By Daniel W. Kelly
An unexpected surprise on a disc of radio edits, you get the full 7 minute version of "Vibeology" by Paula Abdul. This is the only place you're likely to find it on CD, so get it while it's still available.

good musicJan 14, 2013
By Troy ballew jr
i remember when i first bought this Cd, back when it first came out, i liked how the cover looked like ru paul was dancing, and i loved the selection of songs on the Cd, i dont know what happened to it, but i was happy to see i here on amazon to buy, so i ordered it, and i got it in the amount of time i was suppose to, and i was a little disapointed, because the plastic cover is just a normal cover, so you cant see rupaul dancing, kind of silly, but it was a cute bonus with the Cd, but i still enjoyed the music on it,
