SINGLE

look at me i’m a single
everybody wants to hear me
all the press they want an angle
I’m going top 40
this is the first 3 and a half of my fifteen minutes
this beat makes dance come on and get with it
look at me i’m a single
r s v p at all cool parties
i can drop names and mingle
hi warren how’s shirley
this is the first 3 and a half of my fifteen minutes
this beat makes dance come on and get with it
look at me i’m a single
all american on the radio
making the young girls tingle
my video is in heavy ro
this is the first 3 and a half of my fifteen minutes
this beat makes dance come on and get with it

october 1991

often you know when you’ve made something special. but not this day.
blonde had a song the tide is high (number one) which went to number one.
so had always thought its a shame no one ever written a number one song called number one or a single called single. so i fixed that. but i had no melody or plans for the lyric.
when looking for words to an emerging tune, this one got picked just cause its lines were short easy to mold. but they stuck and by days end we had a decent tune on our hands.
decent to say the least. it became one of the hallmarks of my career, definitely our most important tune in ‘92. one reviewer called the song ’god’
