If you and I were wandering around Paris or Manhattan and managed to sneak into some exclusive underground club, there's a good chance a track by French electronic duo Justice would be filling the air. Really, though, "D.A.N.C.E.," from the band's debut album, "Cross," is way too much fun for just the desperately hip crowd to enjoy. Swirling disco strings, a dry, rubbery guitar line and what sounds like a child singing "Do a D.A.N.C.E.!" help the song achieve the kind of joyous rapture shared by so much of the best dance music. Roll a pack of Gitanes into your sleeve, squeeze into some skinny jeans and get down.
