Songfacts®:

  • After signing with Big Beat Records in 1993, New York singer-songwriter Robin Stone recorded this as her first single. It became a massive international hit, going Top 10 both in America and the UK and also charting all over Europe. The song has returned to the UK charts on several occasions. In 1997 a re-mix by Lisa Marie reached #9, in 2002 a Tonka re-edit peaked at #61 and in 2009 another re-mix, this time by Steve Angello & Laidback Luke returned the song to the UK charts yet again.
  • The track is best known for its synthesizer riff, which dominates the mix. Robin S's follow-up single "Luv 4 Luv" used exactly the same formula and peaked at #11 in the UK and #52 in the US.
  • This song should not be confused with Swedish dance pop singer Robyn's 1997-98 international hit of the same title.
  • The song was remade by Sam Feldt featuring vocals from Kimberly Anne. A slowed down deep house version of the original track, it was released as a digital download on June 21, 2015 in the UK through Spinnin' Records and peaked at #4.
