Mandy Smith (born Amanda Louise Smith, 17 July 1970) is an English dance-pop singer and former model.
In 1986, at age 16, Smith was signed to PWL by Stock Aitken Waterman. The SAW team wrote and produced her first two singles – “I Just Can’t Wait” and “Positive Reaction”. A collaboration with Daize Washbourne produced further singles, “Boys and Girls” (which reached No. 8 in South Africa) and “Victim of Pleasure”. Despite the lack of British chart success with these singles, an album, Mandy, was released in 1988. Smith was successful in Scandinavia, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Hungary, Turkey, South Africa, and Japan, where she entered the Top 10 music charts. She was about to launch her career in the United States in 1989 with her single “Victim of Pleasure” released under Atlantic Records but due to health problems, she had to cancel the promotion.
“Victim of Pleasure” was produced by PWL’s Daize Washbourn and Ian Curnow and the US 12″ included 3 remixes by Justin Strauss, 2 remixes by The Extra Beat Boys and 1 by Daize Washbourn. The mixes by Justin Strauss and The Extra Beat Boys were not included on the Cherry Pop 2009 reissue of the “Mandy” album.
