Passion predates New Order's blue monday by a year...

Bobby O isn't the rip off artist people think he is and every BM ripoff he did after 83 was probably out of spite. I'd do the same thing if they made multi million selling singles off my beats lol

Classic Bobby O material, but obviously one of his showcase projects with real songwriting. The number of girls "used" as "The Flirts" is staggering - I have a US "10 Cent A Dance" pressing with autographs, one clearly reads "Hope", no "Holly" here. My guess is that sometimes the girls were out faster than the PR department could keep track... watch some on Youtube for a ever-changing girl selection!
So the "Flirts" are what would today be called a "music project" - a producer using session singers. The albums are always a mix of strong singles, some would-be singles and some real fillers. A mystery remains the "Flirts '92" album "Take A Chance On Me". Either this was sitting on the shelf for a long time or Bobby O was out of time in 1992. This is a very 80s sounding album with some strong tracks which could have been singles, but the production is very low-key, the vocals are not up to earlier "Flirts" standard. And don't pay real money for this one, all tracks are scattered on the "Physical Attraction" 3-CD set.
