1 of the millions awesome songs from great 90´s sound

Second eurodance review I make in the same day... I knew all of these songs thanks to MTV, and this one was one of the most memorable, not because of the song itself - which is a simple fine dance song with rap and diva voice and pretty good synths and basslines - but because of the video, one that spreaded sexuality all over the tv without having a bit of sex, just people having fruit. My bet is that this song was that well-known because of that, because itself it is not much more than a slightly improved variation of 2Unlimited's "No Limit".

One of the best Eurodance Tracks Ever!

I have to agree with the other reviewer that this song is really shit. However, it evokes a strong sense of nostalgia in me too, of the early nineties when all this cheap, crappy, fashion-runway type of euro dance music was popular on the radio here in America. It make me feel like I'm 8 years old again. This song, as bad as it is, along with Bizarre Inc.'s "Gonna Get You", Real McCoy's "Run Away", George Michael's "Too Funky", Madonna's "Vogue" and "Groove Is The Heart" by Deee-Lite are those songs that as awful and embarrassing as they are remind of my childhood like little else and I'll listen to these until I die or they make me go deaf.

The very first CD I ever bought. At the time I was still studying and didn't know English very well so had no idea what it meant. I just liked the lame but uplifting beats.

After I started buying records and sold my CD's I haven't thought of this song for many many years untill I heard it on the radio again more than a decade later. To my surprise I was now old enough to be nostalgic, I just liked it and also kinda liked the corny lyrics. I just had to have it again for good old times sake.

The remix and the edit sound pretty much the same as the original. I guess it's more there to fill up the release than actually adding anything.

All and all I wouldn't really say this song seems to me like it's made as a result of an artistical drive or the will to spread a message of any significance but more out of a pure commercial interest to score a hit. I probably wouldn't like it as much if it didn't gave me nostalgic memories because really, it's kinda shit.
