I've heard it! I love it! The background music is GEENIUS! It was for me one of those songs that you hear on the radio and then you have to try to remember some of the lyrics in order to find out what it is.

So weird... I was planning on starting a thread on this song today (I probably wouldn't have ended up doing it, but I was planning on it).

When you're listening to the radio you have to be careful to not let it slip under your radar. I can see how someone could hear the singing and then tune out completely before that crazy hand-slapping beat kicks in. Plus the "Gangster whine" is always welcome in whatever form it takes.

It makes me want to dance more.

it's on the Diwali rhythm:

the Wayne Wonder track sounds too r'n'b for me, but some of the other cuts on it are great

I have to get that version of it. It's, like, way longer.

J0rdan S., Sunday, 11 May 2008 23:20 (nine years ago) Permalink

it's good, but it's not even the best song on diwali, let alone the best summer jam or best wayne wonder song

Needs a TS with "Turn Me On"

Dom Passantino, Sunday, 11 May 2008 23:24 (nine years ago) Permalink

Yeah, I like Lumidee's "Never Leave You" more than this. Not by much, but still.

Noodle Vague, Sunday, 11 May 2008 23:24 (nine years ago) Permalink

funny then that this thread never took off
TS: Kevin Lyttle "Turn Me On" vs. Lumidee "Never Leave You (Uh Oh)"

J0rdan S., Sunday, 11 May 2008 23:25 (nine years ago) Permalink

Yeah, "Get Busy", too. xp

The Reverend, Sunday, 11 May 2008 23:26 (nine years ago) Permalink

whats the similiarty between the two? they aren't even the same genre

The Brainwasher, Sunday, 11 May 2008 23:26 (nine years ago) Permalink

between "turn me on" and "never leave you"? um i was thinking about them on the same day basically

J0rdan S., Sunday, 11 May 2008 23:27 (nine years ago) Permalink

Sarge, that's because the comparison doesn't quite make sense. (Whereas both "Never Leave You" vs "No Letting Go" and "Turn Me On" vs "No Letting Go" make sense.)

i had no idea that the infallible ilx game "taking sides" needed to make complete mathematical sense to everyone on the board

This song holds a special place in my ipod, largely because of memories it's associated with.

"Bounce Along" also was a total classic.

I know it's a very "lol twee cover" but I really love the Taken By Trees version of this, really highlights what a great song it is in itself.

o0o00h really? (boxedjoy), Saturday, 19 March 2011 13:20 (six years ago) Permalink

i havent heard that cover but............. do u really need a cover to highlight what a great song it is???

just sayin, Saturday, 19 March 2011 13:26 (six years ago) Permalink

Not at all!

Incidentally, in a club last weekend I heard Kevin Lyttle's "Turn Me On" which was a pleasant surprise, its a shame that the moment for this sort of thing has passed.
