I remember being obsessed with this Kelly Rowland song when it came out – that opening riff is just so catchy! I was working in a clothes shop in the Stephen’s Green Centre at the time that was then called Tattoo, although has now rebranded, and I was so into that top with the strings it’s hard to quantify. My friend got a dress version that was basically a black tube with strings hanging off it, and I’ve never been so jealous of anyone (since or before) than I was then. Looking back, I am very glad that I never got my own mitts on that dress.

My love for Kelly hasn’t faded since, and I’ve been waiting for her to repeat its brilliance. And even though When Love Takes Over is catchy, it’s a little too annoying for my liking.
