Giant Steps ‎– Into You (1989)

Giant Steps was a dance pop duo from England that consisted of vocalist/producer Colin Campsie and bassist/keyboardist/producer George McFarlane. They had previously recorded as The Quick.

Giant Steps’ only album, Book of Pride, was released in 1988, and its first single “Another Lover” became a hit in the United States, peaking at #13 on the Billboard Hot 100. It became very popular in Italy in 1988 as well, garnering considerable airplay at pop radio. It was subsequently featured over the opening credits of the 1989 film Loverboy, starring Patrick Dempsey.

Giant Steps’ follow-up single “Into You” was a modest US chart success, reaching the Top 50 in early 1989.

12″ remixes were by Phil Harding & Ian Curnow while the LA mixes on the flip side were by Keith Cohen and Steve Beltran.

  1. Bought both their 12″s in the 80s, so it’s great you have Into You here as it’s not an obvious choice for most bloggers. Thank you EV!
    Even though it’s not far from the Synth Pop sound of their contemporaries like Climie Fisher or 2 Brave, their two singles are great pop singles. And the remixes here are all infectious, even though I’d to give Harding the edge over Cohen.

    • Interesting, I actually thought it had quite a Climie Fisher vibe too, picked this one up at a record fair recently for $2, the Phil Harding credit hooked me and it cleaned up nicely too 🙂 EV
