Friday favourite 49

This is one of my favourite songs - and while Cathy Dennis's cover isn't a patch on the original I think it is significant. Dennis transformed herself from attractive singer of tacky dance songs into one of the biggest influences on global pop music.

She is responsible for Kylie's relaunch hit 'I can't get you out of my head' and Katy Perry's breakthrough 'I kissed a girl'. And her live appearance on an early Channel 5 daytime show shows her mid this transformation.

She also comes across very well in the second clip which features some young but now very familiar faces - including a current Tory MP.
