  • Fergal from Dublin, IrelandMaking a song this bad is impressive. Jason from dublin, ur obviously attracted to people of the same sex, no?
  • Dave from Cardiff, WalesA number of critics noted on a similarity between this song and Michael Jackson's classic "Billie Jean" and Billy Ocean's 1983 hit "Caribbean Queen (No More Love On The Run)". In clubs around Europe the three songs were often played back-to-back as a medley which led to many bootleg versions coming out
  • Jason from Dublin, Irelandgreat song makes you want to dance
  • Rico from Melbourne, AustraliaI think i am the only one to comment on this. And why? Cos I am bored, and at work, and looking for bands who have been ridiculed in the past. Obviously no one has been as bored as me because I am actually looking at S CLUB 7??? Yep this band sucks so bad it makes a texan cyclone look like a pleasant afternoon breeze. This song is no exception
