2000 Sonique: It Feels So Good

Second bite of the cherry for Sonique (this was originally released in 1998), I've seen 'It Feels So Good' variously described as a trance, house and garage dance anthem, but all I hear is an euphoric celebration of love wrapped up in a beautifully understated pop tune. In fact, what I like most about this is that Sonique has confidence enough in her song to carry it herself with minimal assistance from any dance beat. Hell, she could have presented this acapella and that wonderful shift down gear change into minor key at the chorus break would still soar off into hyperspace on the "Your love it feels so good, and that's what takes me high". And hyperspace is where it belongs; 'It Feels So Good' glides on air rather than bounce on a beat and its sheer joy and exuberance has not dated one day.
