Alan Jones from Music Week reviews this week’s BACABDI Beat Dance Chart.
Dance music throws up the most unlikely hitmakers. A year ago, bookies would have given you very long odds on Kim Basinger having a top ten single, but that’s exactly what she did when she teamed up with Ozzy Osbourne and Was (Not Was) for ‘Shake Your Ilead’.
Well, now it’s Lulu’s turn to ride Into the chart with a dance hit. Taste- makers and tlpsters are united in predicting that lulu will have her first hit since the 1986 re-issue of ‘Shout’ when ‘Independence’ is released later this month on EMI’s Dome label. A propulsive house record giving Lulu plenty of room to demonstrate her soulful, r ’n’ b style, it has been mixed by Brothers In llhythm, whose revolutionary re-think of Ileaven 17’s ‘Temptation’ was recently a major success.
Before they blew their credibility with the nauseating ‘Frankle’ in 1985, Sister Sledge recorded some of the tastiest and slickest hits or the disco era, with ‘IIe’s The Greatest Dancer’, ‘Lost In Music’ and ‘We Are Family’ to name but three. To help stimulate interest in an upcoming
Greatest Illts package, due In February, the last of these has been remixed In 90s house style by Sure Is Pure. In the shops in a couple of weeks, It’s already filling the dancefloor at upfront clubs.
The trend towards reviving 70s pop hits in dance style continues to throw up unlikely hits, and one of the first and biggest of 1993 will be a revival of ‘Music’, the John Miles hit. Mastenninded by Italian DJ Fargetta, and featuring the 49ers London-bum vocalist Anne Marie Smith on vocals, it’s a strident, assertive tour-de-force that is destined to be a smash. It’s already around in limited numbers on the bizarrely named Synthetic Softcore Phonography label, but switches to the long-established Parlophone In a couple of weeks. Watch this one cross over in a big way.
Finally, watch out for Undercover to complete a hat-trick of hits with a new version oi the old Gallagher 8. Lyle song ‘I Wanna Stay With You’. Very similar stylistically to the band’s two previous smashes, It’s already been slated by Graham Lyle who reckons It’s ‘bloody awful’. Purlsts should find the original hit on one or the ten three-track CD singles of hits from the MM records archives.
BACABDI rum was first produced in 1862 by Don Facundo Bacardi and is still imported from the Caribbean.
