Does anyone else like SHANNON? I know she had two big "Dance Club" hits: Give Me Tonight and Let The Music Play. I think she had a few other good songs too (cant remember any titles though).

Which song do you prefer? (I have a feeling Let The Music Play is gonna win)

I quite enjoy Let the Music Play. Did I just admit that? [Embarrassed]

I'm guessing that Let the Music Play is going to win this one, but I've always preferred Give Me Tonight.

I prefer 'Give Me Tonight'.

Also pretty much love Do You Wanna Get Away and My Heart's Divided.

I really like both but
"Do You Wanna Get Away" is hands down her best tune.

I´m very sorry hewzy [Big Grin] [Big Grin]
It´s a great song, i like this kind of uptempo stuff.
Remember loving it in the 80s and just found it again myself thanks to this mamamia´s topic.

That Jordin Sparks songs video went on TEEN NICK the other day and my ten year old daughter was like "God, cant they do anything original anymore??? They keep recycling everything from the '80s!" Im sure shes heard me say that about just about every Fergie and Rihanna song and the apple dont fall far from the tree. I WAS pleased to know that meant she was already familiar with the Shannon song, but I guess anyone who lives in this house has been properly schooled on 80s music!

Let The Music Play was far and away her biggest UK hit, and therefore probably qualifies as the best. It's certainly the one I think of when I recall her music.
