Genre: Acid house, Soul, IDM, experimental rock
Country: United Kingdom
Released: March, 1990
Label: MCA
One of the better and relatively surprising UK#1 singles. This was released back in the heyday of acid house.
The extended version sounds like an industrialized version of acid house, by the way.

wiki wrote:In the Simpson interviews, both Adamski and Seal recalled that they were in financial trouble at the time of recording. Seal was almost penniless and was living in a squat.
What's more surprising is that so far this is the only Seal's UK#1 single (and one of his most experimental vocal performances ever).

What adds to its greatness is that it doesn't remotely sound anything like a #1 single (even at the time). Let alone spending the whole month at the top in the United Kingdom (the very volatile chart back in the day).
