I was working on an aerobic dance playlist and stumbled across an old Grind Workout: Dance Club Aerobics VHS tape.  If you remember The Grind from MTV, it's probably for the fact that it was hosted by (a usually shirtless) Eric, from the first season of The Real World. Though it focused on hip-hop, the show was a reliable outlet for crossover dance music.  So, this playlist picks up with some turn-of-the-century dance cuts you might have heard on The Grind — if it had stayed on the air a few more years.
