nice easy listening track by Des'ree. Like this. UK#8 and Ireland#3.
*****
Used to love this song back in the day but the lyrics are indeed very bad, especially the chorus. Nice melody though.

So annoying and such ridiculous lyrics:

I'm afraid of the dark,
'specially when I'm in a park
And there's no-one else around,

Ooh, I get the shivers
I don't want to see a ghost,
It's a sight that I fear most
I'd rather have a piece of toast
And watch the evening news

Life, oh life, oh life, oh life,
doo, doot doot dooo.
Life, oh life, oh life, oh life,
doo, doot dooo

I'm a superstitious girl,
I'm the worst in the world
Never walk under ladders,
I keep a rabbit's tail

I'll take you up on a dare,
Anytime, anywhere
Name the place, I'll be there,
Bungee jumping, I don't care!

Awesome track, don't listen to Bluezombie :p
***
Now I'm torn on it, I suppose it's okay.
*****
Nice uplifting track, those strange lyrics give it a unique element to it.
***
i find this song to be kind of charming despite those awkward lyrics
******
Amazing song, Can't get enough of it
****
Sure there are some lyrics that make you wonder 'Did she jsut sing that?' but it just adds to the appeal of the song. That nonsensical stuff can still makes sense elevates it above average. A fun summertime tune.
**
Crappy song.
*****
Nice lighthearted tune. Simple but also uplifting. Probably her best. 4.5*
****
Pretty nice song.
*****
her second best choice to single just after it's okay
***
3 stars
*
i am sorry but i can't enjoy the song with such stupid lyrics
***
LOL those lyrics. 3.2.
***
wasnt that bad of a song, probably better lyrics then whats around nowadays
****
The lyrics make me lol tbh. It's a nice song, indeed rather carefree and nice sounding. Not a lot else to say really.
*****
Some of the lyrics are very weird but it adds to the appeal.
Awesome track!
