Blow, Kurtis – If I Ruled The World

I loved this song. Why it didn’t get any higher than number 24 in the UK singles chart is a mystery to me. Ever the one for a bargain, I picked this up on 19th April 1986 from the bargain bin (at Woolies) for 75p because it had left the chart. It was released in the w/e 18th January of that year and made reasonable progress in its first four weeks, but couldn’t kick on to make to the higher spot, which it deserved. It was backed by a dub version and was taken from Blow’s 5th album, 1985’s America. It was also featured in the movie Krush Groove.
