Come And Get It - J.C.A. Featuring Dannii

Since the day that Dannii's Dirty Box first opened its pink flaps to the public, I have been weighing up whether I should do some kind of countdown or make a list of my favourite Dannii songs. It sounds like a lot of fun but I just don't think I could choose between them. However, I am certain that Dannii's collaboration with J.C.A. would, at the very least, be in my top 10. "Come And Get It" is an exquisite slice of dance-pop that should have delivered Dannii her first #1 hit. Instead, the song suffered the indignity of ending up as one of those ridiculous hidden tracks on certain editions of "Neon Nights".

Just when it seemed that all was lost, Dannii's German record company outed itself as the knight in shining armour who would save the song from pop oblivion by announcing that "Come & Get It" would be the 4th Single from "Neon Nights" in Germany. Dannii's fans rejoiced that one of the greatest pop injustices of recent years would be rectified to some extent. The record company appeared committed to making the song a success - remixes were commissioned, promos were released and a video clip was planned. And then, the record company pulled the plug due Dannii being unavailable for promotion due to previous commitments. I think that's code for "Holidannii strikes again".

"Come And Get It" was eventually released as a digital single in Germany and I am very happy to bring it to you with thanks to Tommie. Get ready to enjoy one of Dannii's finest pop moments.

Tsk, tsk, you need to read up on your Dannii knowledge - Come & Get It was supposed to be a single from JCAs album, not Neon Nights.

After she covered I Begin To Wonder she recorded Come & Get It as a favour to JCA.

Come And Get Shit is terrible! I don't listen to Neon Nights anymore because I kept forgetting that it would appear like a pungent whoopsie in a broken down elevator on a 40 degree day...

But Tommie, Come & Get It is on Neon Nights - so surely it would be a Neon Nights single too?

From Wikipedia:

Recorded as part of the same recording session as I begin to wonder. The song first appeared a hidden track on Minogue "Neon Nights" album, it was originally intended for a European release, remixes, promo CDs where released and a video was planned but Minogue was too busy to promote the single and it was cancelled at the last minute. Warner Germany decided to release the single via Itunes only.

It was never intended to promote Neon Nights - Dannii only included her favourite remix of the track as a bonus. Just as Coconut wasn't intended to promote Girl, but The Singles Collection...

I heard this blaring out of the Fashion Show Mall on the Las Vegas Strip a few years ago. I was so proud of old Dannii. Sadly her career went down the pan from then on.

I love Come & Get It. It is fantastic. Everything a Dannii song should be. She should do more with JCA and Terry Ronald. Maybe that way all her songs would be as shit hot as they should be!
