Welcome to the article where we celebrate pop groups that you may of completely forgot about their music or may not of heard of them before and want to listen to something new! Today we look at an act that were around at the end of the nineties.
Bus Stop formed in 1998 and was a dance act that was made up of Daz Sampson, Graham Turner, mark Hall and Nikki Reid. Whilst the name of the group may not ring a bell you definitely would of heard of their debut single which was a remake of the song Kung Fu Fighting.
Their version of the song had the original vocals of Carl Douglas but they sampled the song by adding original rap lyrics as well. The song was really successful in the charts and reached number 8 in June of that year.
The band went on to release a number of different remakes and remixes throughout the rest of the nineties including ‘You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet’ (which reached number 22 in 1998) ‘Jump’ (reached number 23 in 1999) and ‘Get It On’ (which reached number 59 in the charts).
The band broke up in 2002, however a few of them have gone on to do other things in the music industry – for example Daz represented the UK at the Eurovision song contest in 2006 with the song Teenage life. So lets have a look at some of their songs today.
