Stock Aitken & Waterman – Roadblock

In comparison with Simon Cowell, these guys are something like the good guys.  But in life everything is relative.

Not content with churning out hits for Australian soap actors and other assorted ne’er do wells, they even put a record (or three) out in their own names.  Perhaps I’m being a wee bit hypocritical in having a dig, after all I BOUGHT THE BLOODY THING, but SAW produced just lowest common denominator, bland, formulaic, turgid garbage.

Anyway, for the record (geddit, ‘record’), this item spent a total of 13 weeks in the UK singles charts in the summer of 1987, including a week at its highest position of number 13.
