If you don’t recognise this song by its title, I guarantee you’ll recognise it as a source of over 30 years of sampling. Most notably, Black Box’s ‘Ride on Time’ and Mary Mark’s ‘Good Vibrations’.
Holloway’s belting vocals make this song as enjoyable as it is. She manages to balance power with emotion – which is pretty hard to do when you pump your vocals up to 11 constantly. The brass section more than makes up for some weak-synths (hey, it was 1980, what did you expect?).
