Throwback: Kathy Brown – I Appreciate (52 Leagues Of Swing)

I first heard it in a mix by Ben UFO, and was instantly hooked. I put it on loop and listened to it for so long I was in an ‘I appreciate’ bubble. The vocal is almost gospel-like, it isn’t clear who exactly she is appreciating but she definitely appreciates them a lot. These vocals are excellently mixed, looping over and over like they are reiterating the point. As they are the most prominent thing about the song it is easy to forget the tune, which is actually very good: with piano chords that fit perfectly into the 4/4, percussion-heavy backing, they firmly wedge themselves into the listener’s head and refuse to budge.

Released: 1995
