FlinterFile: Mel & Kim- Respectable


In 1987, Stock, Aitken and Waterman had their first number 1 hit (UK) they composed and produced together. The song, sung by former models and sisters Mel and Kim Appleby, were discovered by Waterman. The intro was the idea of Stock, but Mel & Kim didn’t like it. They suggested to take it out, until they performed the song in Holland (before the album was released). The crowd went wild and they said the intro had to stay! A good choice, as it was their only number 1 hit in the UK. Enjoy
