Sit and wait - Sydney Youngblood

'Sit and wait' was Sydney Youngblood's second single, taken from his debut album 'Feeling free'. Written by Ralf Hamm, Mike Staab, Sydney Youngblood and Claus Zundel, it was another dance song with a catchy hook.

The single became a success in Europe, peaking at number 2 in Austria, Germany and Sweden, number 6 in Switzerland and the Netherlands. It was only less successful in the UK (where it peaked at number 16), Ireland (15) and France (number 21).

My collection: 7" single no. 1141
Found: Free Record Shop, Den Haag, January 6, 1990
Cost: 6 guilders
Tracks: 'Sit and wait' / 'Feeling free' (duet with Elaine Hudson)

If only I could - Sydney Youngblood

Sydney Youngblood was born as Sydney Ford in San Antonio, Texas on December 2, 1960. In 1988 he debuted with his single 'If only I could', which became an immediate smash hit all over Europe. The single reached number 3 in the UK singles chart and number 2 in the Dutch Top 40.

The lyric of the song speaks about a world of brotherhood and love which Youngblood would like to create - 'If only I could'. It was a positive message that doesn't come across very often in dance songs.

My collection: 7" single no. 1074
Found: HMV, London, October 19, 1989
Cost: 2 pounds
Tracks: 'If only I could' / 'Spooky (instrumental)'
