Nothing guilty about my love for Feels Like I'm In Love, particularly the 90s PWL remix
I like the original but it was just before my time chart wise, whereas the regional homosexual nitespot I frequented in the 90s used to hammer the PWL remix so that's always been the version I've loved.I will always prefer the original as the 10 year old me was watching it climb the charts in the Summer of 1980 - to be dethroned by The Police!
"Feels like I'm in love" is a guilty pleasure classic! The third best selling in the UK of 1980!
18. SAVING ALL MY LOVE FOR YOU- Whitney Houston (#1, 1985, 902,000)
80s position: 16
The hit that broke Whitney in the UK did so in style topping the charts for a fortnight in 1985. This is a cover the 1979 track by Marilyn McCoo & Billy Davis Jnr which Houston’s mother Cissy was unwilling for her daughter to sing given its theme of adultery. Thankfully she was convinced eventually and this was the first of 7 straight no 1’s in the US for her, all of which is impressive by anyone’s standards. Whitney has done well generally in the list due to her early death I suspect which has caused a general reappraisal of her early work.
No 12" Mix
Ms Ross, never gets the respect she deserves at times I think. THE original female solo artist and music diva and then some.Chain Reaction is one of the earliest songs I can remember really loving. Iconic video too.
The OG diva.
To fair, Claire's high notes at the very end are everything.Would now be a good time to mention that the Steps version of Chain Reaction is the definitive one for me? Thought not. I'll see myself out...
Claire's ad libs at the end of Chain Reaction are a thing of wonder.To fair, Claire's high notes at the very end are everything.
Indeed they are-still Ms Ross's song through and through though.Claire's ad libs at the end of Chain Reaction are a thing of wonder.
File alongside:Chain Reaction is pure filth.
