Best Bit-At 0.15.In 2002 Andrea True said,’I want to be remembered as a person who gave people pleasure’-then emphasised the words-‘with my music.’
Andrea Marie Truden(July 26,1943-November 7,2011) was an American pornographic actress who changed her career to become a singer in the Disco era.It was while recording a television commercial in Jamaica that she got in touch with her friend Gregg Diamond who followed her to Jamaica to write and record the song along with local musicians who were to become known as the ‘Connection.’The lyrics of the song perhaps take a nod and a wink at her previous career,’Get the cameras rollin,’get the action goin.’
In 1993 Bananarama took their version of the song to Number 24,but the highest charting remake was from ex S Club 7 singer Rachel Stevens who peaked at Number 3 in 2004.The song was also a hit reaching Number 8 in the UK when sampled by Canadian band ‘Len’ in 1999 with the title ‘Steal My Sunshine.’
‘So take me where you want to,boy my heart you steal.’
