Dannii's Second #1 Japanese Hit!

One of the most curious phases of Dannii's brilliant career is her brief stint as the queen of Japanese dance as a result of her collaborations with Eurogroove. I have already posted the delicious "Boogie Woogie", which climbed all the way to #1 in Japan. Now, with thanks to Brian, I am able share Dannii's other collaboration with Eurogroove, "Rescue Me". Like "Boogie Woogie", "Rescue Me" was a #1 Japanese hit and Brian tells me that all of Japan was completely paralysed with Dannii-mania on its release! Oh, to have experienced consecutive #1 Dannii hits!

The song is not quite as bubblegum as "Boogie Woogie" but it is a seriously fun slice of 90s dance pop. Dannii needs to call up the guys from Eurogroove and beg them to work on her next album. They were obviously onto something. "Rescue Me" reminds me of Kylie circa "Let's Get To It". Something about this song demands the waving of a glow stick! I've also included the craptastic remixes. Thanks again, Brian!

Yay! I've been looking for this song for ages...

Also, it actually charted at an amazing #54 and sold a stunning 26,140 copies! Boogie Woogie didn't chart, but I think I heard it sold around 15k...

Thanks Rob!

Excuse me, Tommie. How dare you try to diminish Dannii's Japanese mega-success!? Rude!!

Dannii charted at #1 on the international Japanese charts with both Rescue Me & Boogie Woogie! Hardly any English speaking acts make it big on the Oricon (domestic) chart. Well, apart from The Nolans and Irene Cara!

You're such a hater!

Anything that has a mix called "Soul Fake" needs lots of tongue-licking behind the bike sheds.

Talking of bikes...Tommie don't be hating on the Phanni Malagore's Japanese Dominance. We know you give the Ryan Brothers blow blabs in exchange for rare Carola b-sides.

Tommie's yet to find a cock he hasn't wanted to perch on! It's not right but it's ok, I still love him despite his horrifying Dannii hatred. He is still Dannii's #1 (only) Swedish fan.

You're welcome, Gustavo. Nice to see a new face.

Alyson - that is the best thing I've ever read! I'm going to make a post about it. Who says Dannii isn't a trendsetter?! I love it. Thanks!!

I'm just jealous of her #134 smash hit album Neon Nights, I guess. :(
