  2. A bit obsessed with this recently, the very frantic/intense dancing in the video is killing me.

    I also have no idea who they were supposed to be marketed for? The backing track screams teen pop but everything else seems more fitted to young adults?

  3. What IS that dancing in the bathroom about, does not match the song in any way.

  4. Better than the slightly more remembered Cry India, if you ask me.

    I'm convinced over here this was the single mix, but... the dancing possibly fits worse?

  6. What am I up to, you ask? I’m telefunkin’!


  7. Always loved this mix of it though

  8. This song deserved to be huge, which was not to be. It shows how good the Sade guys were, something you don't really realize as they prefer to stay on the background. Gorgeous song and album.

  10. I've just watched this one and apparently, vigorous, off-tempo dancing was their thing?

  11. Stumbled across this gem of a song when I was rearranging my cds. What glorious voices.

  12. I was raging when they replaced this with something else on the VHS and DVD release of Queer As Folk.
  13. Just discovering this, and if they weren't the main inspiration for Girls5Eva, then I don't know what was. Literally iconic.

  14. Very Janet circa 1993.

  15. Best known for their 1989 US#2 smash Two To Make It Right and for the post-group notoriety of members Idalis De León and Michelle Lynn Shupack, this was Seduction's biggest UK hit, hitting the dizzy heights of #75 in 1990.

  16. A shame the UK never embraced those US freestyle girl groups of the late 80s/early 90s. Although Seduction had quite diverse-sounding singles in their one album, not just freestyle.

    Exposé only barely cracked the UK top 75 with the bland "I'll Never Get Over You (Getting Over Me)" while their late 80s bops managed a week at the bottom of the UK top 100. Sweet Sensation never had a UK hit and The Cover Girls weirdly did make the UK top 40 once they booted their first helium-voiced lead vocalist for more capable singers.

  17. Two years before Mambo N.º 5, Lou Bega was in a group trying to churn the next Coco Jamboo.

  18. I live for this vibe! Nostalgia central. Need a whole playlist of this Euro-Reggae era.
