    Hmm….I forgot that these records were originally produced and released in the UK. Oh well!

    I like some of the Hi-NRG songs from the 80s, but SO MANY MEN has never been one of my favourites.
    But I really like CLOSE TO PERFECTION!

    I prefer SO MANY MEN SO LITTLE TIME. I enjoyed the beat on this one. At first, because of the long musical introduction I thought it was going to be an instrumental track and I would've been okay with that too.

    The result is 2-2, which means that Miquel can keep both titles on her résumé - and that's not a bad thing at all. Except that it totally fx up my scoreboard.
    Oh well, so many signature songs, so little time.

    I have heard It's My Party and I think of the 2 it's the popular one? There was a commercial for milk that sang....It's my Party and I'll drink Milk if I want too Milk it I want too....so that song reminds me of that. :eek:

    I love the music in You Don't Own Me... and the words are spot on cause nobody owns me! :cool:

    I vote for YOU Don't Own me!

    I never realised both these songs were sung by the same person. Two great songs which are polar opposites. It's My Party is about a pathetic, jilted woman feeling sorry for herself because her boyfriend has run off with another woman whereas You Don't Own Me is about a strong, independent woman telling her man she is still free to do what she wanst. You Don't Own Me is like a female anthem and for that it is my preferred song.

    This was an easy decision for me because I think - You Don't Own Me - is a great song with timeless lyrics.


    Here is a version from 2015 by Grace ft:G-Eazy

    I would automatically vote for any song with a Johnny in it, but YOU DON'T OWN ME sounds just a little bit more interesting.

    I Promised Myself is the better song in my opinion.

    :D




    I prefer EACH TIME YOU BREAK MY HEART and I am not sure why? Maybe its because (to my ears) I PROMISED MYSELF sounds like it could be anyone, whereas ETYBMH I instantly associate as Nick Kamen's song.

    He sure does look like a young Elvis too me when he was young. Was he going for that look? I don't know anything about him.

    As I remember he was a model, to begin with, and shot to fame advertising the Levi 501 jean. Basically, he got his it off in a laundrette. Then (I think) Madonna spotted (fancied) him and worked with him to release some music. The first song "Each Time You Break My Heart" was a big hit, but after that, he seemed to fade into the background and Madonna probably got bored with him.

    I do think you have jogged my memory and I do remember this about him, Madonna and the Levi Commercial. He released his last album in 1992. It doesn't say what he is doing now.

    Excellent point, but the majority of soapchat is not in favour of the Nick Kamienst song.
    He waited and waited and waited for our decision, and now I'm happy to announce that I PROMISED MYSELF is the official Nick Kamen signature song.
