  • Lyrics
  • This was a 2 year old underground hit before hitting the top of the UK charts. It was re-released in 1994 after a Kiss FM poll revealed this record to be the most popular dance single of all time (despite originally only getting to #69 in the UK chart but staying in the top 200 almost constantly for two years selling 40,000 copies). This song has Dorothy, the wife of Phil Fearnon (former leader of the Disco group Galaxy) on vocals and the song's writer and producer Floyd Dyce on keyboards. Floyd recalls in 1000 UK #1 Hits by Jon Kutner and Spencer Leigh, "I formed Baby D as a vehicle for the songs I was writing. It was the whole rave scene, which I was heavily involved with, that inspired me to write 'Let Me Be Your Fantasy' in 1992. I asked Dorothy to do the vocal. We needed a name for the group, so it was Raj at Production House (their record label) that came up with the name Baby D. It wasn't a reference to Dorothy. It didn't actually stand for anything." >>

  • Dave from Cardiff, WalesBaby D went to #1 in the UK with this release in 1994, but failed to develop into the UK chart mainstays many critics imagined they would. Their only other notable hit was their 1995 cover version of The Korgis' 1980 classic "Everybody's Got To Learn Sometime"
