Agreed. Anything Stock Aitken and Waterman is pure dirge.

ha, Roadblock.
IIRC it was pushed out on a white label, so no-one would know it was a SAW track. Instead it was hyped up before being umasked as another 'pop monster' from SAW :-)

IMHO the best that SAW released were the Princess tracks.

“Say I’m your number 1” was a pretty good pop track.
