Not the worst song from Steps but not there best.... Everybody was doing this stupid dance... What was with it in the 90's with these sort of songs with stupid dances?
Steps were major causes of this.
***
Not my favourite by them it's quite annoying. 19 weeks in the UK top 100. UK#14. 400,000 copies sold in the UK.

Their third biggest selling single in the UK.

I hated this, then I guiltily loved it. Then I got sick of it again. Now the nostalgia has kicked in and it's a fun song to hear. Or sing at karaoke.

I agree with BeansterBarnes. Why did everyone keep doing the silly dance? Very silly and it's just not a good song. Extremely annoying. To add to that it repeats itself Over and OVER again!

Such fond memories are associated with this song that I can't hate it, despite the cheesiness. And yes I was one of the idiots who knows the dance off by heart. The beginning of the awesomeness that was Steps.
**
Ah, this song. I had completely forgotten about this until now. I have rather embarrassing memories associated with this and in all honesty the song has not aged well.
*
this song is crazily bad!
****
it's good enough, but clearly not their best song
*
Gay song!
*
I think 1997 was year pop music started to infest the charts. There was still a mix back then though, now its just completely dominated and ruined the charts.
This song is a bit nostalgic.
****
It still surprises me that this was a number one in Australia. It hasn't aged well, but it still brings back fond memories.
****
I loved this when i was a kid, Now it's just good and catchy.
***
'My Bootscooting Baby' as the title would've made more sense.

It's not that bad.
*****
Quite possibly the ultimate cheesy 90s pop song, how could you hate it?!
****
I like it but the dance is stupid.

I remember having to dance to this in a group dancing class and not being very good at it.

The rating moves up a bit due to its nostalgia value.
***
Yeah I remember the dance and I was alright at it. Surprised this hit #1.
******
ETERNAL JAM.
