If you, like us, came pretty late to Steps or simply want to repurchase worn out/overplayed Cds go to Amazon, HMV or one of our all time favourite music stores' Gemm Music which has tons of odd stuff at very low prices. All secure and cheap!
Steps are crucial for any pop history of Britain. A cynic would charge them with blandness but their music spoke out for itself and coloured the charts that was, at the time, filtered with pop bands trying to be indie bands and indie bands pissed off at the pop bands trying to be like them. With so much anger and denial it was nice to see Steps providing the smile on the depressive and slouched body of the music industry. They were the rapture. Steps would see acts attemping to mimic them in the form of Scooch & when Steps left the charts a kind of tribute band came tohttp://www.blogger.com/img/gl.link.gif the bridge in the form of the absolutely gorgeous band POP!. However for some reason the refractions never quite achieved the sense of absolute power that Steps secured over their three album history.
Never Get Over You-Live-This track started it all! The LSL takes lead vocals with amazing results! Prefer this over the Buzz album version!
Sleazy!-Not as dirrty as Electric or the title suggests. A pop TOON!
Summer Of Love-Tour Mix-This is a brilliant version of an already brilliant pop song. If theres one song you download from DontstopthePop we'd say its this or Human Touch. We adore this version! Outshines the original!! U can hear a DBOP extended version over at DontStopthePop's sister site, the wonderful ReallySayingSomething. This track has never appeared on any commercial Steps Cd!!! Enjoy!
A Love To Last-This actually doesnt sound like a Steps song. Lyrically it is rather trite and we can see why the song was maligned from a proper Steps LP release but its a rather cute ballad that really wants to be dance track that sounds like a country n western singalong song. Calm, precise and strange.
I'll Wait For You-Ooooh what have we here....
Why-The b-side to Better Best Forgotten. Indeed!
