Review July 25, 2005 by Phil Marriott / - The mere concept of this track fills me with dread, mainly for the reason that I am getting bored of uninspiring forays into soft-rock anthem sampling.

Dance transformations so far this year have included Alice Cooper's "Poison", Yes's "Owner Of A Lonely Heart" and of course "Falling Star" by Sunset Strippers, which chewed up the 80’s hit by Boy Meets Girl. And you thought it couldn't sound any worse.

If you are a fan of the aforementioned, then chances are you will love this predictable, nostalgic romp.

Pascal and Red Kult provide the mixes, which aren't terrible by any means, but there’s a horribly nagging feeling that the producers here are merely using the sampling-by-numbers ethic in the hope of just getting a No.1.

I'm no Bryan Adams fan, but the 1985 original probably intended on having a fraction of soul in it. On listening to Pascal’s 2005 update, the sour taste in my mouth is that of Adams being put through a clapping machine – akin to the kind of thing Stars On 45 were also doing back in the 80's. And who wants to remember that?
