Perhaps one of the most brilliant PWL singles of all time, nicking bits of house and breakbeat for a track that topped European charts back in 1987. Sounding like an early version of the Spice Girls, this cheeky club shout-along has it all - dodgy lyrics, bass, cool drum machine pattern, and overall a beat that just makes ya wanna get up and practice those Mel and Kim moves!! We ain't ever gonna be respectable indeed!!
