Wow, on the back of the advert for that new water brand "Drench", this amazing #1 hit from 1992 looks set to re-enter the Top 40 this coming Sunday! :o 8-) :D

It's currently #37 on iTunes, it could end up being this year's "In The Air Tonight"! It's times like this I love the current chart rules, old songs as good as this should rightfully be resurrected on public demand and it gives a whole new audience who would've barely been born in 1992 the chance to appreciate quality dance 8-)

If you haven't seen the advert, it's here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BM53XeCOZ9Q

Holy carpet madness Batman!

That video is well random, I don't watch adverts so ain't seen it before but if it does the song good then that's cool.

I was too young when this came out so woo, might get into it.

It always reminds me of going to Tenerife in 1993 when I was 8 and they played this song every night at the kids disco and ever since it's always been one of my all time favourite dance tracks.

One of these songs that can't go wrong - even though it was released in 1992 (?), then again in 1996, 2003 and I think even 2004 as well...

Many thanks

I might suspect that all of those version have % of sale but the best selling version on iTunes is 90s original one :o

Yeah it's gonna be 99% the original version as that's the version featured on the advert that's made it re-enter.

The original is probably the finest dance song of all time, 16 years after its release IMHO

Hands up best dance song ever made. The chords, the bassline, the vocal, the beat, everything is top notch.

This is the absolute best dance song of the 90s and probably ever made.

Imo that is!

I think it may have peaked now, it's slipping again on iTunes - I would've loved it to have made the Top 20 again but it's done great so far 8-)

Never went nuts about it and it's become all the more annoying with all these resurrections.
