well actually some if us opened the thread but did not click on the links  ;)

it was a reaction to being rickrolled many times before - but personally i like Ricks music so it wasnt a huge trainsmash to me during those past occasions - i will admit to having loads of the 12" club versions of his songs (and lots of other music that Stock, Aitken and Waterman produced)

Nitin my friend ... I'm shocked, that's worse than coming out of the closet :P

why?

truth be told i was a DJ during the Stock, Aitken and Waterman era - so i was playing a lot of Rick and Kylie Minogue etc etc etc in the clubs at the time. Believe it or not the 12" maxi versions were collectables since they were only imports - some of them were actually pretty good IMHO

and it was decent dance music and it was a reliable favourite ie most DJ's knew that when you were losing the crowds interest you could play one of the SAW tracks and get them going again .... which was pretty useful if you were DJ'ing in a biggish club (in the 90's i was DJ'ing in some of the biggest Indian and colored orientated clubs in Durban)

...remember how "Locomotion" by Kylie saw normally sane humans form snakelike trains in forward bended motion...that dance single handedly placed those of uncertain orientation straight into the closet...some haven't left to this day. ;D

yip we all did that. I think I was in St 3-4, the inception of legendary house parties...  But who would have guessed? (below)... whilst anybody younger than 30 is going Jason Donavan who??  It's been 25 years.

Another one of the greats who will be sorely missed. Certainly opened a whole new world of music to many. RIP and thanks for everything.
