Let Me Be Your Fantasy
In 1992, I was 40 years old. Hardly the target market for a new blend of modern music. Nonetheless, I was overwhelmed when I heard this record, from a group that I had never known before that time. Sung by the beguiling Dorothy Fearon, it soon became a staple of the rave/dance scene of the mid 1990s. Two years later, it reached number one in the mainstream charts, and I bought the CD ‘Deliverance’. This contained the track in question, as well as other favourites; ‘Casanova’, and the cover of ‘Everybody’s Got To Learn Sometime’, which I had owned by The Korgis. This was an amazing album, with no duff tracks, and a great version of ‘Let me Be…’ into the bargain.
Despite my age, I was overwhelmed by the quality of the vocals, and the production values.
This track has rightly been hailed as a modern ‘anthem’. If you don’t care for it, I can only say that, ‘you had to be there’. I have such great memories of playing the CD in my car, maxing out the volume, and singing along to the annoyance of other road users in London. Please enjoy it. I am sure you will.
