Throwback: Daniel Bedingfield – Gotta Get Thru This

Released over 10 years ago this was the song that brought Bedingfield to the attention of the world and it was recorded in his apartment.  It is hard to believe he recorded it in such low key conditions, showing that as long as there is talent, it doesn’t matter where it is honed because it will shine through (thru). Using very basic software, he created a smash song which hit #1 in the UK charts and is still selling well today – it has been certified platinum 5 times and counting – transcending the normal lifetime for high reaching singles.

That instantly recognisable syncopated beat and that gritty voice, even the cheeky sampler at the end all add up to make this song one of the best garage tracks of the noughties.

A 2-step anthem.

Release year: 2001

– Kim Kahan
