Mandy

This one’s for Drew.

Mandy Smith, mainly famous for marrying the least cool Rolling Stone when she turned sixteen (and he was forty seven), had a pop career of sorts, after signing to Stock Aitken and Waterman. This song, I Just Can’t Wait, smashed the UK chart, peaking at number 91. It gained a remix (the Cool Jazzy Breezy Balearic Mix) which made it popular in certain late 80s clubs and circles, especially the legendary Shoom. It was also on the compilation album Balearic Beats Volume 1. Is it a balearic classic? You can decide for yourselves. Drew loves it.

The Face picked up on Shoom and Mandy Smith’s remix as this clipping  from 1988 shows…

Just to show how SAW-ish the original was (and by contrast how balearic that remix actually was)…

Don’t worry- we will never speak of this again.
