The album was the group's commercial breakthrough both in Europe and the U.S. It produced four commercially released singles, including the hit You Spin Me Round (Like A Record), which was a number one hit in the U.K. and still remains the best known track of the group.

The original LP record included 9 songs, while cassette and CD released in 1994 had two bonuses - You Spin Me Round (Like a Record) (Performance Mix) and Lover Come Back to Me" (Extended Mix). Besides these formats Epic released a beautiful picture disc LP in Japan.

D.J. HIT THAT BUTTON
Michael David Percy, Peter Jozzepi Burns, Stephen Coy and Timothy John Lever
The way I have to look is
I want more than anybody possibly can
The way I have to go for it
It makes me stand up, shake and feel like a man

And I feel just like a radio
And when the DJ hit that button

That's the way it was meant to be, yeah
That's the way it feels right for me, yeah
That's the way it was meant to be, yeah
That's the way it feels right for me, yeah

Anyone can have feet
Ooh, but they got to learn to use it
There's a special channel here
So do you get it or you lose it?

And I feel just like a radio
And when the DJ hit that button

That's the way it was meant to be, yeah
That's the way it feels right for me, yeah
That's the way it was meant to be, yeah
That's the way it feels right for me, yeah

Hit that button, hit that button
Hit that button, hit that button

The way I have to look is
I want more than anybody possibly can
The way I have to go for it
I got to stand up, shake and feel like a man

And I feel just like a radio
And when the DJ hit that button

That's the way it was meant to be, yeah
That's the way it feels right for me, yeah
That's the way it was meant to be, yeah
That's the way it feels right for me, yeah

IN TOO DEEP
Michael David Percy, Peter Jozzepi Burns, Stephen Coy and Timothy John Lever
I could offer you a thousand things
But with a lot of them you wouldn't bother
I could buy ten real diamond rings
But I'm sure that you would want another

I could take a plane
And I could fly away
I could steal a car
And I could drive away

You have brought me a lot of things
But the main one that you brought was trouble
You put your finger to the trigger and you
Shot my heart
Well now, I'm really gonna burst your bubble

(But I'm) in too deep
There's no gettin' out of it
In too deep
No doubt about it
In too deep
There's no gettin' out of it
In too deep
No doubt about it

Too deep, too deep

I could call you a lot of things
I could say there'd never be another
Every time the situation feels like getting hot
I gotta turn around and say don't bother
BIG DADDY OF THE RHYTHM
Michael David Percy, Peter Jozzepi Burns, Stephen Coy and Timothy John Lever
Turn your head around

If I was the greatest dancer
Would I get a chance with you
To turn you head around?
If I was the greatest dancer
Would I get to know you?
Well, let's burn our love into the ground

Everybody's got to need somebody
Everybody's got to have someone to love
Everybody's got to need somebody
Everybody's got to have someone to love

Big, big daddy of the rhythm

Big, big daddy of the rhythm
Oh, you know you got me runnin'
Big, big daddy of the rhythm
Oh, you know I'm not complainin'
Big, big daddy of the rhythm
I'll send this sloppy kiss to you

If I was a smoother talker
Would I get to talk with you?
And talk about it, talk about it
Let's go home and talk about it
Feel that rhythm comin' through
And being home will never do
And shout about it, shout about it
Let's get down and shout about it

Everybody's got to need somebody
Everybody's got to have someone to love
Everybody's got to need somebody
Everybody's got to have someone to love

Big, big daddy of the rhythm
I can feel you comin'

CAKE AND EAT IT
Michael David Percy, Peter Jozzepi Burns, Stephen Coy and Timothy John Lever
I'm told my idea of seduction
Is a bit passe'
I hear you like to try it
So I'll try it anyway

I would try anything
I swear I'd try it here and now
I might impress you
With a Rudolf Valentino bow

I tell you to get your attention
I'd do anything
I would work night and day
For all the joy that she could bring

I'd like to be the hunter
Who get's captured by the game
Oh won't you run your fingers through my mane!

I've gotta have my cake and eat it
I've gotta have my cake and eat it, too!
I've gotta have my cake and eat it
I've gotta have my cake and eat it, too!

I want fun I gotta run to you

To me you look just like
A treasure chest of pretty things
I already told
I would buy you ten real diamond rings

Oh, let me tell you
I got lots of things that you could use
So don't reject it or I'll get
The love rejection blues

Any wish of yours is my command
I'd pay you money
If you'd only say you'd hold my hand
I'd speak in languages that only you could ever hear
Oh baby, take me
Won't you please come here!?

I've gotta have my cake and eat it
I've gotta have my cake and eat it, too!
I've gotta have my cake and eat it
I've gotta have my cake and eat it, too!

I want fun I gotta run to you

I said I'd pay you money
If you'd only hold my hand
I hear you like to try it
So I go ahead as planned

I hear my smoochie talkin'
Might just be a bit old hat
So I'll watch what I'm sayin'
I don't think you'd go for that

A little birdie told me
That you just might feel the same
If you do then all you have to do
Is call my name

I would do anything
I swear I'd do it here and now
I might impress you
With a Rudolf Valentino bow

I've gotta have my cake and eat it
I've gotta have my cake and eat it, too!
I've gotta have my cake and eat it
I've gotta have my cake and eat it, too!
LOVER COME BACK TO ME
Michael David Percy, Peter Jozzepi Burns, Stephen Coy and Timothy John Lever
I've been lying here so lonely
I've been wishing you would telephone me
Oh, I just can't lose this desperation
Won't you bring around a new sensation?

Baby, you got lots of energy, yeah
Gonna give that energy to me, yeah
Tell you, we could have a real good time, yeah
Baby, I can make you mine, oh, mine, yeah
Oh, yeah, oh, yeah

Lover come back to me
You don't have to knock on my door, no
Lover come back to me

MY HEART GOES BANG (GET ME TO THE DOCTOR)
Michael David Percy, Peter Jozzepi Burns, Stephen Coy and Timothy John Lever
The other night a close friend told me
Never let my heart fall into careless hands
I said thanks that's very nice
Appreciate your good advice
But things don't always go the way that I plan

Oh oh oh
You you you take my heart and shake it up
You you you take my heart and break it up
Get me to the doctor

My heart goes bang bang bang bang
My heart goes bang bang bang bang
My heart goes bang bang bang bang
My heart goes bang bang bang bang

Here is why I know I need a session

Oh oh oh
You you you take my heart and shake it up
You you you take my heart and break it up

You you you take my heart and break it up
Get me to the doctor

My heart goes bang bang bang bang
My heart goes bang bang bang bang

IT'S BEEN A LONG TIME
Michael David Percy, Peter Jozzepi Burns, Stephen Coy and Timothy John Lever
Pardon me baby
I just got to say

I could be a suit of armor
Protect you when the furies fly
Fly you on a magic carpet
But you're never comin' down this time

I could be your own detective
Hang around all the time
Act just like a secret agent
Protect you from the real bad times

Been a long time, been a long time
Been a long lonely time
Been a long time, been a long time
Been a long lonely time

Been a long time, been a long time
Been a long lonely time
Been a long time, been a long time
Been a long lonely time

Baby, I got something special
Something money cannot buy
But you got the price I'm asking
You can be the first in line

I could be a suit of armor
Protect you when the furies fly
Fly you on a magic carpet
But you're never comin' down this time

It could be so very nice
It could be very very nice
It could be so very nice
It could be very very nice

Been a long time
Been a long time

Been a long time, been a long time
Been a long lonely time
Been a long time, been a long time
Been a long lonely time

Been a long time, been a long time
Been a long lonely time
Been a long time, been a long time
Been a long lonely time
