1987 ... first title and first direct mega hit. A notoriety which literally explodes overnight and which propels the singer to the top of fame at the speed of light. HU-GE !
1987 ... a nice sequel but nothing more. And this despite a trendy Hi-NRG tempo. Unfortunately, this will not be enough to keep the singer at the top of the Charts. Pity...
1988 ... we start again on the same bases the following year. It's top Dance but once again, it lacks the flash of genius that made the incredible success of his first title
1988 ... then comes THIS title. A track with obvious inspiration and which will allow the singer to reconnect with success, the real one. Like what, nothing is ever finished ...
1988 ... a title out of competition, not classified but which nevertheless shows that the little one still has some under the pedal !
1988 ... a BIG year 1988 with an impressive succession of big caliber titles. Including this one which will undoubtedly remain as one of its most successful. HU-GE !
1988 ... and it continues, and it is not over. Dance, Dance, Dance, over and over again. This girl is a war machine to ignite the Dancefloor !
1988 ... the exception that makes the rule. A sweet parenthesis, unexpected but incredibly effective. Like what, it was enough to try !
1988 ... a title she shares with a certain...Kylie Minogue. Just that. And regardless of the singer, the result is up to par in each version !
1989 ... we end with this luxury cover of the cult title of Human League dating from 1981. And once again, the copy is almost worth the original. We will have started 100 % Dance, we will end 100 % Dance !
