Tonight - The Look

Just like I am the beat, The Look's 'Tonight' is a song I know well from my childhood. Finding the single has proved a little more difficult, because I haven't seen it through the years between then and now. And it's quite amusing to note that I bought the other single in 1995 and this one just 21 years later...

I don't really know why I remember the song that well, since it wasn't a hit - neither in the UK nor in the Netherlands.

My collection: 7" single no. 5842
Found: Record fair, Utrecht, April 17, 2016
Cost: 1 euro
Tracks: 'Tonight' / 'Three steps away'

I am the beat - The look

When The Look released 'I am the beat', I think my sister bought the single. Hearing it from her repeatedly, I got fascinated by this single. It did something that nowadays couldn't be done on a compact disc: at the end of the A-side the groove kept repeating the last few seconds. The song would only end if you took the needle from the record (which some players did automatically anyway).

I always confused The Look with The Jam. Which means I never really knew who performed this song when I was young. In 1995 I finally bought this single myself.

My collection: 7" single no. 2443
Found: Record fair, August 26, 1995
Cost: 1 guilder
Tracks: 'I am the beat' / 'You do these things to me'
