    Stock Aitken Waterman (abbreviated as SAW) are an English songwriting and record producing trio consisting of Mike Stock, Matt Aitken, and Pete Waterman. The trio had great success from the mid-1980s through the early 1990s. SAW is considered to be one of the most successful songwriting and producing partnerships of all time, scoring more than 100 UK top 40 hits, selling 40 million records and earning an estimated 60 million (about $104 million).

    63 singles produced by SAW reached the UK top 10, 4 additional singles were top 20 hits in the US.
    I divided these 67 songs into 11 groups, using random.org.

    source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_s ... n_Waterman

    GROUP 1



    Bananarama - I Heard A Rumour
    The Reynolds Girls - I'd Rather Jack
    Rick Astley - Together Forever
    Bananarama - Venus
    Big Fun - Blame It On The Boogie
    Rick Astley - It Would Take a Strong Strong Man

    RANK THE 6 SONGS (6 = FAVE)

    Strong first batch. I loved "Together Forever" and the Big Fun cover at the time (we all knew the dance moves in my primary school!) and those two Bananarama songs are classics. Don't know the other Rick one, but "I'd Rather Jack" really isn't great. I remember it being ranked quite high in a poll of the worst songs of all time on TV once!

    I was about to create a post here and then saw that you'd already cast exactly the votes I was going to cast, so I'll just copy them. Band Aid II isn't great and I never did go for Sam Fox's music at all. (I was too young at the time to go for anything else about Sam Fox really...!)

    Much as I loved "Fun House", Pat Sharp's music career was dreadful!
