Artiestinformatie


Samantha Karen Fox beter bekend als Samantha Fox zag het licht op 15 april 1966 in Mile End te Londen. Ze werd ontdekt als naaktmodel als “Page Three”-girl in de Engelse tabloid The Sun.



Midden jaren 80 brak ze ook als zangeres door dankzij de talenten van songwriters en producers Stock, Aitken, Waterman. Slechts 20 jaar oud veroverde ze de wereld met de hit “Touch Me (I Want Your Body)”. In Nederland werd deze een jaar later overstegen door de hit “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Me Now” die de 7e plek behaalde in de Top 40. Wereldwijd verkocht ze meer dan 30 miljoen platen.



In 1994 bekeerde ze zich tot het Christendom. In 2003 kwam ze middels haar autobiografie uit de kast. Haar partner overleed in 2005 aan de gevolgen van kanker.

Songtekst

I don't know what it is that makes me love you so
I only know I never wanna let you go
'Cause you started something, can't you see?
That ever since we met you've had a hold on me

It happens to be true
I only wanna be with you

It doesn't matter where you go or what you do
I wanna spend each moment of the day with you
But look what has happened with just one kiss
I never knew that I could be in love like this

It's crazy but it's true
I only wanna be with you

You stopped to smile at me
Asked if I cared to dance
I fell into your open arms
And I didn't stand a chance

Now listen, honey

I just wanna be beside you everywhere
As long as we're together, honey, I don't care
'Cause you started something, can't you see?
That ever since we met you've had a hold on me

No matter what you do

I only wanna be with you

You stopped to smile at me
Asked if I cared to dance
I fell into your open arms
And I didn't stand a chance

Now listen, honey

I just wanna be beside you everywhere
As long as we're together, honey, I don't care
'Cause you started something, can't you see?
That ever since we met you've had a hold on me

No matter what you do
I only wanna be with you
No matter what you do
I only, I only
I only wanna be with you!
