This is just one of the many great songs you’d hear on The Beat Chicago. 

There’s enough stations playing rock n’ roll classics and the same 80’s songs from Bon Jovi, Journey, John Cougar, Elton John all day long and that’s all cool but, when you want something completely different?  When you want everything from Marvin Gaye, Earth, Wind & Fire, The Spinners to Stevie B, C+C Music Factory and more of the music that keeps you movin?  We’re it.

See, we’re all about the classics too…. Classic R&B and dance of the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, 90’s, freestyle and more.  For us, it’s not about how old a song is, it’s about how good it is and this is as good as it gets.

The original version of this song released in 1994 was nice but went nowhere. It wasn’t until Dance Music Hall of Fame icon DJ/Producer Todd Terry remixed it in 1995 that it would be become the international hit it was. Terry’s version is the one at the top, the original version for your comparison is below and wow! What a difference a remix makes.

Chart-wise, this UK indie band would strike gold around the world with Terry’s rework. hitting number three on the in Nov. 1995, number one on the German singles chart and the duo’s first and only US Top 40 entry on the Billboard Hot 100, entering at number 94 for the week ending August 12, 1995. After a long climb, it peaked at number two during 1996.
