Lucid 'I Can't Help Myself'

Chart Peak: 7


Back on a dance tip here, but a less obviously commercial one. To be sure, this was a major hit, and they had a couple more ('Crazy' and a cover version of 'Stay With Me Till Dawn') but this feels so structured to me it seems like it could only make sense at the right point in a DJ set. Indeed the sleeve note describes it as a "monster club track" that was "finally due for release in late July '98"; the copyright date is actually 1997 so it obviously had been well established in the club scene before it came to the awareness of the rest of us. It's all trying to lead up to a climax but I've to admit it mainly passes me by.
