UK Chart Run: 21-11-8-5-4-3-3-3-5-7-8-14-21-41-58 (15 weeks)

This round's evictee was a bit of a landslide with Oceanic gaining over 52% of the votes, the time has finally come for Insanity to depart. I must admit that I was quite a fan of this at the time, it's poppy take on the rave sound was very appealing to me as a kid - and I definitely hadn't forgotten about its existence unlike some of our fellow posters...

Review by PCF:

"Out at last, it's The Record I Forgot Existed, Oceanic's Insanity. I'm listening to it now on my crappy distorted laptop speaker and I can't tell the difference from the non-distorted quality-sound version laugh.gif Just a bit tinnier. OK I've heard worse and 2nd time round in a few weeks it's not so bad after all, and if I was in a club and had a few bacardis I'd be lapping it up in all its cheesy 90's gloriousness and having a right old laugh. One the plus side, they're from The Wirral ("carrm down, carrm down, y'er awrighht mahte?"), and it also made the Australian top 40. In the wake of this number 3 hit they managed 3 follow-up top 40 hits in the UK, none of which I recall at all though it's entirely possible they all made my personal charts. Until I get my 1991 through 1997 charts digitised it'll remain a mystery as to why the braincells set aside for Oceanic's career must have been deleted in a 2000's update to allow more memory for other stuff!"

Time to get voting and we'll see who narrowly misses out on the final...

Cher. The 1975 Linda Lewis diva disco version It's In His Kiss pisses over it from a great height......

Doesn't appear to need any more waiting for this result:

"Cher is fabulous. This track though isn't as fabulous as most of her back-catalogue, and came from the film "Mermaids" and the catchy video introduced this song to another generation of kids and reminded older music fans of a song that didn't get a lot of oldies airplay in the UK. Originally released as a flop by Merry Clayton in 1963 under the sensible title It's In His Kiss, it was covered in 1964 by Betty Everett in an identikit clone version, and went to the top of the US charts using the gimmicky title Shoop Shoop Song. The Merry Clayton version is better, and Cher's version is also a carbon copy of it, albeit speeded-up a bit with Cher in full foghorn mode. In between, British folk/soul singer-songwriter Linda Lewis, the first black female British singer-songwriter artist to have well-deserved success, had a brief one-off diversion into disco during The Year Of Disco, 1975, when she covered the song under it's original title, a frantic, amazingly high-pitched romp that deserves to be remembered more than it is for a top 10 hit. For most of the UK public in 1991 this was the 'original' version. Cher, however, is the one everyone remembers, being as it was a retro monster smash. I reached saturation-point about two months into it's run and haven't really gone back to it. You want classic 90's Cher, go to Believe, One By One or many others...."
