Relatively short, I don't have that much to say, although I adore the song.
Ah, yes. Gone were the days when pop looked this effortless and pop princesses came in truckloads.
I don't exactly miss that period, maybe because I didn't know anything about music then(mind you, I was maybe three or four when this was released.. although I vaguely remember saying that I liked either Baby Spice or Posh Spice during the 90's, I forgot.), but now that I look back on it, it seemed like a very fun period to be in. And when I say fun, I mean it.
Even if this song is on the slower side, it's still really fun, and dance-able. It seems to me that a lot of stuff from the 90's could be sung with a dance routine. A lot. I mean, the Spice Girls were really the epitome of fun then, but Billie Piper was pretty close, with the songs, dance routines and the over-all image, something that was apparently very important, and still is.
The concept of putting a single out back then seemed so out of reach, it wasn't as easy as it is now. I mean, nowadays we've got Myspace and American Idol or The X Factor whereas back then, you had to either know someone in the business or blow someone in the business away live.
Which is probably why people made the most out of it. I mean, look at the amount of pop stars that were constantly being 'created' by record companies, the figure's huge. Many failed, but the ones who didn't found success that unfortunately, didn't last that long. Some managed to carry over to the new millennium, but a lot of artists were stuck in the 90's. Billie was one of them.
Although her 2000 album wasn't as successful as her first album, she'll be remembered in music for her earlier singles, Because We Want To, Girlfriend, She Wants You and Honey To The Bee, four amazing singles and equally amazing songs.
