The final Christmas chart battle of the millennium(!) saw Steps enter the fray with their take on a Kylie Minogue classic.
Coming off the back of a greatest hits collection and amid rumours of an impending split, Steps wouldn’t leave us with a ballad…would they?
Every pop act has to start somewhere, even if that place is techno-country line dancing. It’s time to begin, now count it in…
With Disney in the market for a pop act to re-record ‘Beauty and the Beast’, H & Claire seized the opportunity to show what they could do.
‘Stomp’ earned Steps a long overdue second #1 single, even if it wasn’t necessarily a song that showcased them at their very best.
It might have been a little late to the party, but ‘Summer Of Love’ still managed to put a uniquely Steps-twist on the Latin-pop craze.
‘Here and Now’ was very much the silver lining to an ominous cloud that was starting to gather over Steps.
‘All Out Of Love’ saw H & Claire come full-circle as they released one of the best songs that Steps never recorded.
‘After The Love Has Gone’ saw Steps draw on one of their biggest hits and give it a very Oriental twist.
The release of ‘One For Sorrow (Tony Moran US Remix)’ in 2001 saw the Steps story come full-circle as the track once again peaked at #2.
‘Half A Heart’ saw H & Claire take a swift change of direction for their second single as a newly-formed duo.
As the lead single from Steps’ second album, ‘Love’s Got A Hold On My Heart’ was a risk-averse, but very welcome return for the group.
