Album: Into The Skyline

Forgotten UK dance-pop star Cathy Dennis had a few major hits from her 1991 album Move to This, from 1989's "C'mon and Get My Love" (with D Mob) to 1991's "Touch Me (All Night Long)," her highest-charting hit (no. 5 on the Billboard Hot 100). Dennis' star had begun to dim with the release of her second album, Into the Skyline; both of its singles reached the Hot 100, but "Irresistible" didn't even make it past no. 61, even with the ever-present airplay this writer recalls at the time. The song didn't get too much serious attention. But the vulnerability of its devotion gave it a cheery, gum-snapping flirtatiousness that stood the test of time. In fact, Dennis would make a virtual career out of similarly coy, sexually subtle come-ons: she wrote "Can't Get You Out of My Head" and "Come Into My World" for Kylie MInogue, and even won a Grammy for Britney Spears' "Toxic." -David Drake
