A Collection of Great Dance Songs is a compilation album by English rock band Pink Floyd. It was released on 23 November 1981 in the United Kingdom by Harvest Records and in the United States by Columbia Records. The album's title is facetious, given that Pink Floyd are not known for making particularly danceable music. This is perhaps evidenced by the album art, which featured a photograph of ballroom dancers anchored to the ground so they cannot move

The track listing really does a poor job of capturing the cinematic and sweeping quality of their music, although "A Collection of Great Dance Songs" is nice enough and covers the 1971-1979 timeframe - which many regard as their peak. As a long-time Floyd freak, I (still) listen to a Pink Floyd album from start to finish.

Released in 1981, A Collection Of Great Dance Songs ( 6⁄10 ) was castigated for its conceitedly humorous title which only served to make the band appear pompously remote; of course, we’re far too good to make dance music
