I cannot describe how much I love both tracks on this single. Rockit is the template for all good electro tracks since and I Thought It Was You sounds so unbelievably like modern house music its untrue. Its hard to believe that these were made 20 years ago because they sound so fresh. If I had to choose the best, it would be ITIWY because you could play it in a set with new house tracks and it slip in very easily and inconspicuously. Masters at Work and Blaze seem to have based their entire careers on that track!
