The early 90s saw a 60s revival in style and attitude and Deee-lite were the epitome of that movement. Towa Tei, DJ Dimitry and Lady Miss Kier, who made up the group, were young, fresh and straight of the New York club scene when they released the irresistible Groove Is In The Heart form their 1990 debut album World Clique. Groove was a hit in the clubs first, reaching #1 on the US Hot Dance Club Play chart before hitting radio and finally peaking at #4 on the Hot 100. The video was the perfect visual match for the funky song and Deee-lite were suddenly everywhere. Though they only had one more Hot 100 hit with the follow-up single Power of Love (#47), they did have continued success on the dance charts, posting five more #1s over the course of the next five years. Regardless, there is no denying that Groove Is In The Heart is a classic, get-up-and-dance masterpiece. Enjoy the Happy Monday Song Groove Is In The Heart and dance, dance, dance.
