This review is from: Respectable [CD 1] (Audio CD)
So...you take 5 gorgeous girls, a marketing genius and lots of money, add in a Stock/Aitken/Waterman classic and you get Girls@play. Respectable is the girl's second single (Airhead being the first) and is a cover of the classic Mel and Kim hit from the 80s. Nothing much has changed really and the song is pretty much identical to the original although it has been suitably "tweaked" for 2001. Despite the somewhat unoriginal production, the song still works and sounds decidedly modern - either a tribute to the writing and producing skills of Stock/Aitken/Waterman or the pop music industry hasn't changed very much in 15 years! You decide. The song is far more radio-friendly than the girl's first attempt which will hopefully assure it a reasonable chart placing. If you like your pop pure and easy to dance to then go and buy this single.
